Summary Charts

You are here:
< All Topics


The Summary charts display the percentage of time that each piece of equipment has been in each status for the time frame selected. The Equipment can be selected by User GroupsCompany Groups, or individual Equipment. Shifts or Shift Groups can also be selected.  When displaying the result the statuses can be shown for individual equipment or by the selected group type.

Required and Optional Information

A time frame and one or more pieces of equipment are required to generate these charts. Once the equipment has been selected the Finish and Next buttons become available. At this point the chart can be generated without specifying any additional information by pressing the Finish button. Additional optional information can be selected by pressing the Next button.

The second page of the filter can be used to select the type of statuses to be compared. By default the General status is selected. This section also allows you to filter by part number and work order if desired.

General and Specific Status

For the Cycle status either general status, all specific statuses, or a single specific status can be selected. As an example, let’s assume there are two specific statuses in use, Machine Time and Spindle time. Machine Time has been setup to be active any time the equipment is running. Spindle Time has been setup be active only when there is a load on the spindle. By selecting Machine Time as the specific status the comparison chart will utilize the appropriate amount of time as the cycle time and therefore providing different results for the percentage of time the equipment has been in cycle.

For Planned and Unplanned Downtime either the General Status only or the Specific Statuses can be viewed.

Equipment Status Summary

The Equipment Status Summary chart displays the percentage of time equipment has spent in each of the statuses it was in during the selected time frame. See the below examples:

An example when selecting the General Status for all of the status types. Each Status Type is displayed for each piece of equipment.
An example when selecting Machine Time for the Specific Cycle Status. The SRC 1 machine does not show since it was set to only collect General Cycle Time, not Specific Cycle Time. The Machine Time is equal to the General Cycle time in the previous chart since we defined Machine Time as anytime the Machine is running.
An example when selecting Spindle Time for the Specific Cycle Time. Note that now the amount of cycle time has decreased and the overall percentages of the other status types has increased.
An example when selecting the General Status for Unplanned Downtime, All Specific Statuses for Cycle Time and Planned Downtime. The Cycle Time and Planned Downtime are now broken down to show the detail of each of the Status Types.
An example when selecting Specific Statuses for Unplanned Downtime.
An example when all Specific Statuses are selected for all of the Equipment Status Types.

Summary Per Period Chart

The Summary Per Period chart displays the percentage of time that each piece of equipment has been in each status for the time frame selected. Each summary bar on the chart represents either a day or a week for a single piece of equipment.

Example of a Summary Per Period chart

This example shows the results of one machine over the course of 5 consecutive days. The results are also being displayed as general status times.
