Only our support team can add new stations. In most cases, we consider each input on the Evocon device as a station/machine and it needs a separate setup. That is why you can only edit the settings of existing stations and not add new ones. If you would like to start measuring a new station contact our [support](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=New%20stations&body=Describe%20the%20production%20machine%20you%20want%20to%20monitor).
Note: In case you have multiple factories in Evocon, please make sure you have the necessary factories selected as active (more information here).
In the station settings, there are different features for you to use. Each one has a different purpose and is built to help you monitor your machines more effectively. See below for more information.
Operators can send messages from the Shift View and sent messages will be delivered to emails that are defined for each station.
These messages can be maintenance related or on topics that need reacting from managers.
Follow this link to learn more about how to send messages from the Shift View.
In addition, the e-mail address dedicated for the specific station is also given, so it would be possible to send messages to the station operators proactively. However, please note that only messages coming from the specified e-mails (in the "Notification emails" field) are accepted.
The purpose of this function is to give immediate feedback to operators about the performance of the work shift. If the shift OEE in Shift View is above the happy % then Mr Evocon’s emoticon on the Shift View page is happy. When shift OEE in Shift View is below the unhappy % then Mr Evocon’s emoticon on the Shift View page is unhappy. And when the shift OEE is in between happy and unhappy, Mr Evocon’s emoticon is neutral.
Note: In Shift View, the OEE % is shown in green when OEE is equal or above Mr Evocon happy % and in white if it is below that.
In case a product change is done on a production stop, this feature automatically adds the specified reason to the stop. The purpose is to help operators make their job easier. If the stop reason is always the same when making changeovers (e.g. Preparation) then with this feature, the stop reason will be added automatically.
Empty shift reason is a function that automatically adds a stop reason to empty shifts (no signals from the sensor). If the chosen reason is a planned stop, the empty shift will be taken out of the OEE calculation as it reduces planned production time. If the chosen reason is an unplanned stop, the empty shift will reduce total OEE. The function is useful to exclude holidays from OEE statistics. For example, if you have production scheduled from Mon to Fri, but Thu and Fri are holidays, then the system will automatically detect this and automatically add the defined stop reason.
This function provides an option to define a scrap reason for each station that is always in the reason field as the default value (otherwise it is "Uncommented"). In case you are tracking scrap automatically, this default reason is always added and the operator does not need to do that each time scrap is detected.
