Highlights and Apps

Individual Dashboard

With Clouver you can uncover hidden production costs, minimize downtime and get a comprehensive real-time overview of all your production processes. The dashboard app allows you to customize the widgets for the functions you need. You can also export the extensive production data in order to significantly simplify your analyses, reports and production planning.

The Maintenance Monitor

Plan maintenance and spare parts requirements in due time and maximize machine availability. Using user-defined parameters, the “Maintenance Monitor” app’s predictive maintenance feature provides you with the data required to determine when maintenance or service is needed, thus minimizing downtime.

Productivity

You can have the productivity of an individual machine or a fleet of machines displayed at any time and receive notifications on your cell phone or tablet if production has come to a halt or if an intervention is required. This means you can act quickly and prevent unnecessary downtime.

Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)

Through production performance and scrap rates, Clouver’s “OEE” app indicates drops in productivity that are due to downtime or temporary disruptions, thus allowing you to remedy the issues. Determine where and how exactly you can improve production efficiency.

Smart Filter

With the Smart Filter App you can get a deeper insight into the production data. With just one click, reasons for downtime - which the machine operator has either selected from adjustable categories or entered himself as a comment - can be displayed. This way downtimes are systematically recorded and specifically analyzed. Finally, suitable measures can be defined - for more productivity at lower costs.
