Prior to the ISA Automation Week 2013 conference, I wrote a blog post titled “Measuring the Value of Overall Equipment Effectiveness in Manufacturing Processes.” The post outlined several key elements needed to implement a successful overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) program. The last element discussed was the need to standardize methods for data analysis using process […]

Is overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) a “magic metric” or just another flavor of the month measurement? The answer is: it can be either, but not both. We have become quite good at producing production metrics that are boiled down to a value that is either green, yellow or red as compared to an arbitrary goal […]
This session is in the Control Performance Track: Manufacturing Intelligence Presented By: Mr. George Buckbee, ExperTune, Inc. Read Bio Abstract: Your DCS is keeping secrets from you. The distributed control system and the data historian have a huge amount of data from your plant. But they are not telling you the most important secrets that lie within. […]
Because an exact number for standard deviation could only be obtained by taking an infinite number of measurements, the below formula calculates the estimated standard deviation. Let’s take a set of measurements from a temperature transmitter with a range of 0-100 deg, Celsius. IDEAL VALUES AS FOUND VALUES 0 1 10 12 20 21 30 […]
This presentation was delivered at the 55th Annual Symposium of the Analysis Division by Prabhu Soundarrajan. It explains why solid-state hydrogen sensors enable new monitoring applications through both enhanced capability and reduced cost.
