PROEFFICIENT1.0 – An Holistic Tool To Calculate & Interpret Overall Equipment Effectiveness

OEE is the standard way of calculating the efficiency of Productivity in the operational time. It is necessary to evaluate OEE in order to get a glimpse of how effectively and efficiently the resources are getting utilized. Conventionally, the calculation of OEE is done using MS Excel where the complete production data is being recorded in Excel sheets and based on the data the calculation is done for the OEE as Efficiency = Output/Input = (Input-Losses)/ Input              OEE = Availability*Performance*Quality For the sake of OEE the losses can be categorized as shown: Now the traditional method of calculation of OEE is suitable for the smaller units where the number of machines is in single digits and data is easy to be...

Minimizing Downtime Via Internet of Things in Automobile Industry

‘Downtime’ is a dreaded word any manufacturer would not like to hear. Every second of Downtime creates huge losses for the manufacturing companies. The companies are always on the quest to find new solutions to minimize downtimes. The Internet of Things(IoT) is a great application coming to the rescue of such companies in their fight against Downtime. The following are the few aspects that help reduce Downtime using IoT in the Automobile Industry: Maintenance of Production Line One can imagine what nightmares a single small part failure can give to the manufacturer and the replacement of the faulty part is not readily available. Wouldn’t it be great if this small part is going to fail is known and it’s replaced before it causes downtime? Well, this is where IoT comes into the picture....

Challenges for MSMEs in the Current Economy

Introduction Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) forms the backbone of the Indian Business Sector. There are more than 50 Million MSMEs in India which contributes to almost 45% of Indian Gross Domestic Product. Approximately 46 Crore Indians are employed by these MSMEs. This sector is growing by 11.5% every year. Hence this becomes a very important aspect for India to take care of if India wants to become a 5 Trillion Dollar Economy in the near future. But currently, it is riddled with many challenges. Let’s discuss a few challenges which the Micro Small and Medium Enterprises in India are facing currently. Loan Accessibility The MSMEs are mainly started using personal savings and getting funds from relatives and friends. They do not have existing assets generally, to begin...

How Power factor effects Electricity Bill

To understand the effect of power factor on electricity bill first we need to know the power factor. So I will make it easier for you. Power factor is ratio of net energy used by us for work (actual energy) to the total energy supplied to mains (apparent energy). Numerically Pf = KWH/KVAH. Pf is denoted by cos (Φ) where Φ is the phase angle between current and voltage. Apparent energy = Actual energy + Reactive energy This reactive energy is main culprit for our raised electricity bills. Electricity Boards levy Huge Penalties for an inefficiently managed Power Factor. Since Pf is a cosine value so it can never exceed value of 1, it always lies between 0 and 1. If Pf value is 1 for any load it means the load is completely resistive and 100 percent energy is being used. If Pf is less...
