Much like the Operator Portal, the Pitchboards will show you a daily, shift, pitch by pitch view of your production actuals, products, and overall metrics.
You can access the Pitchboard from the Operator Portal or from the Production Menu. You'll select the Area, Line, and Shift you want to view.
The first section covers the Week to Date metrics for the entire line (all shifts). Beneath that you'll see the Weekly Shift Metric Totals; followed by the Daily Shift Metrics.
The metrics you see are determined by which metrics you have enabled for your site under the Production Settings.
Demand: How much should be produced.
Actual: How much was produced.
Pace: Actual - Demand
Availability %: This is the Availability for the time frame. The availability metric uses planned production minutes in the calculation.
OEE %: Overall Equipment Effectiveness. This is the OEE for the time frame.
PEFF %: Production Efficiency. This is a ration of Actual / Demand.
TEFF %: Theoretical Efficiency.
Performance (PPP) %: Performance Per Part.
TPU: Time Per Unit
NPM: Non-Productive Minutes
Labor Efficiency: This is a way to measure the efficiency of operators. This is calculated using the formula: Earned Minutes / Available Minutes.
Scrap %: This is a percentage of Scrap to all parts produced: Scrap/(Actual + Scrap)
Takt Time: The rate needed to meet customer demand.
Run Rate: The actual rate at which the line is running: (Planned Production Time - Downtime) / (Actual + Scrap)
Past Due: The number of pitches a given line is past due or ahead.
Quality %: Similar to Scrap, this is the percentage of good parts to all parts: Actual/(Actual+Scrap)
PPMH: Parts Produced per Man Hour
PPH: Parts Produced per Hour
E-Hrs: Earned Hours
Planned Production Minutes: This is a sum of the pitch planned production minutes during the time frame. This does not include planned non-production minutes.
Down Minutes: This is a sum of the pitch downtime minutes during the time frame. Pitch downtime minutes cannot be larger than the total number of minutes in the pitch. Pitch downtime can be larger than the Production Minutes metric since the Production Minutes does not count non-production minutes. Note: OA on this page uses Production Downtime Minutes. Production Downtime Minutes are not viewable on this page. This is the sum of downtime minutes excluding planned non-production minutes. For example, if a 60 minute pitch has 20 minutes planned non-production, and 40 minutes planned production, and a "down" dispatch is open for the entire duration of the pitch, only 40 minutes are counted toward production downtime. Production Downtime Minutes is used for the Availability % calculation.
Operator Count: This is the average number of operators on a line during the time frame.
Beneath the overall metrics, you'll find individual pitches along with their metrics and totals. You can also find links to the Weekly Summary, Calendar, Schedule and Operator Portal from this screen as well.
