The MES Performance course is a 4-day, instructor-led class designed to provide a working knowledge of the features and functionality of AVEVA (formerly Wonderware) MES Software/Performance.
The course provides lectures and hands-on labs to supply and reinforce the knowledge necessary to use Wonderware MES Software/Performance.
The class will demonstrate how to configure and deploy a data collection system to analyse and report equipment utilisation, availability, quality, and performance using the Application Server object.

Module 4 – Overall Equipment Effectiveness and Lines
Section 1 – Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) Introduction

  • This section discusses what OEE is, including Performance parameters and quality of goods produced.

Section 2 – Line Introduction

  • This section introduces lines, including the lines required for performance and quality calculations, and single and multi-entity lines.
  • The discussion includes explanations of Standard Item, Rate, UOM (unit of measure), and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
  • Parent entities are also defined, including how they relate to shifts, as well as items and item classes.

Section 3 – Shifts and Shift Schedules

  • This section provides an overview of shifts and shift schedules and explains how to create and configure them.
  • It discusses after-hours reporting and parent entities and describes assigning shifts to the parent entity of a line.

Section 4 – Items

  • This section provides an overview of items and discusses the Product Definition group, which you use to create and configure units of measure, items, and item classes.
  • All the Product Definition group functions are discussed, including the reason codes and reason groups.

Section 5 – Single-Entity Lines

  • This section provides a discussion of single-entity lines, including entity parameters, such as utilisation and OEE, and line parameters for a line, line layout, and line access.

Section 6 – Work Orders

  • This section provides an overview of work orders and work orders as they relate to jobs.
