Is XL right for you?
Here is a quick test of whether XL is right for you.
Are you tracking production with spreadsheets?
Do you lack accurate or actionable data?
Do you have a system but it’s too hard to use?
As Easy as 1, 2, 3
XL provides built-in and customizable reports for unlimited users, out of the box. It is a hardware appliance that easily scales up from one machine, to one plant, to your entire enterprise. Buy exactly what you need, exactly when you need it.
Wire one or two sensor inputs from an existing machine photo-eye, relay, proximity switch, or encoder to XL.
Plug a barcode scanner into XL to make it easy for operators to start part runs and scan down time reasons. Print barcodes right from XL.
Connect XL to your network and provide an IP address. There’s no software to install, access everything through your browser.
Any report. Any machine. Any time.
Our patented reporting technology creates a level playing field across your enterprise. With XL on every process instantly generate reports for a process, area, plant, division, or your entire enterprise. Every XL includes a powerful embedded webserver so there’s no software to install, and your data is instantly available to every user on your network.
Your data. Your way.
Immediately leverage the data XL collects with built-in reports like OEE, Down Time, TEEP, Changeover, Top Losses, and Total Production Timeline. Even better - create custom dashboards, reports, and export files to organize exactly the information you want in exactly the way you want to see it. With over 100 metrics and more than 20 dimensions available in real time and historically - you have a wealth of actionable information to mine. And your data is not locked in a silo – you can export it to Microsoft Excel with a single click.
Charts provide many different ways to visualize information (line, column, Pareto, stacked, or clustered).
Tables enable showing tabular information either grouped (with drilldown) or chronologically (by event).
Chronograms are useful for visually showing category values over time (e.g., whether the process is running or down).
KPI Groups show multiple metrics organized in a tabular fashion.
KPIs provide a lot of information about a single metric: average value, value over time (sparkline), and trend.
Built on best practices
XL leverages the knowledge and expertise of the same team that writes and publishes OEE.com and LeanProduction.com. It thoroughly integrates a whole host of industry best practices including OEE, TEEP, Six Big Losses, Theory of Constraints, SMED, Continuous Improvement, and Short Interval Control. And it is designed to be easy. XL easy. Because a powerful product only creates change when it is used. By you.
Are you ready to create change?
Drive improvement. At every level.
XL provides you with a single source of production data. Detailed. Accurate. Timely. Precise. One data foundation to drive change across all roles and responsibilities.
- Operators focus on what they can improve in the next few hours. Get the line to speed. Quickly react to down events. Meet the changeover target.
- Supervisors focus on driving improvement across days or weeks. Analyze a problematic part. Set shift targets. Use data to be proactive – not reactive.
- Leadership focuses on change that spans months or longer. Launch a project. Set goals. Compare investment to results.
With XL - your data aligns your team. Naturally. Everyone works from the same set of information towards the same set of goals.
This shift. Empower operators.
Operational Your operators need answers to two simple questions:
- What do we need to make this shift?
- Are we on target?
The XL scoreboard answers these questions in real-time. If Efficiency is 100% or better - your operators are on track to “win the shift”. We see time and time again that keeping things simple achieves better results. So keep it simple. Use the built-in scoreboard configuration or select from 100+ included metrics.
The scoreboard drives the first wave of productivity improvement with XL.
This week. Improve daily meetings.
Tactical How do world-class manufacturing companies ensure their production meetings are effective? By basing them on accurate, actionable, up-to-date data.
- Are you relying on manually collected, inaccurate, or out-of-date data?
- Are decisions based on opinions – or data?
With XL you are just a click away from more effective daily meetings. Start with one of our built-in reports or create your own dashboard report.
Improved production meetings drives the second wave of productivity improvement with XL.
This month. Attack the right loss.
Strategic Most companies try to accomplish too much and end up achieving too little. Why? They focus on the wrong things.
- Do you know your top 10 losses?
- Which are improving?
- Which are getting worse?
The XL Top Losses report ranks every loss in terms of time. Every down reason. Slow cycles. Small stops. Startup rejects. Production rejects. Changeovers. All ranked by impact and presented in one page. With trend information that instantly shows you where you are improving and where things are getting worse. Banish assumptions. Allocate resources where you will see the biggest improvement for the least effort.
Top losses and other analytics drive the third wave of improvements with XL.
