Schneider Electric launches EcoStruxure Plant Lean Management

Schneider Electric has launched EcoStruxure Plant Lean Management, a digital solution that collects and aggregates data across industrial operations to develop key performance indicators (KPIs) for short interval management (SIM) meetings, where shop floor teams review production cycles and identify issues and actions that need to be implemented.

In todays digital era, data is widely regarded as one of the most important industrial resources. However, an AWS and Frost and Sullivan study shows that less than 5% of plant data is converted into actionable insights. As a result, more industrial enterprises are demanding solutions that scale operational value across multiple sites.

Digital transformation is not just a technological challenge, it requires a culture of collaboration and continuous improvement, said Ali Haj Fraj, senior vice president for the digital factory line of business at Schneider Electric. EcoStruxure Plant Lean Management puts plant and supply chain information in the hands of workers, so they can make the best decisions in real time and boost productivity.

EcoStruxure Plant Lean Management offers a user-friendly collaborative interface that seamlessly digitizes and optimizes SIM meeting cycles across one or multiple sites. It automatically collects the relevant Information Technology and Operational Technology data for KPIs on productivity, service levels, quality, safety, and sustainability with real-time access to on-site or remote data. Users can visualise issues in real time and digitally track preventative and corrective actions until fully resolved.

The open platform, which can be implemented on any hardware, integrates with AVEVA Data Hub, a solution that aggregates and stores vast quantities of real-time data generated by Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices. This sparks faster digital transformation by removing the need for proof of concepts.

This new offer demonstrates what is possible with collaboration, said Harpreet Gulati, senior vice president for planning, simulation and optimisation business at AVEVA. Our software manages shop floor teams, machines, and processes, dispatching work and collecting data.

EcoStruxure Plant Lean Management layers on improvements, driving manufacturing performance, powering faster issue escalation, decision-making, and problem solving. Together, we provide greater value to customers.
