ShopMonitor's Machine Event & Production Monitoring

Primer - Manage Events

ShopMonitor is the ShopFloorManager: (html) Module for Efficiently Creating, Managing & Collecting Real-Time CNC Machine Events, Production Events, etc. You can use ShopMonitor: (html) to Collect, Record, Manage & Generate Reports For: OEE Charts, Cycle Counts, Cycle Times, CNC Idle Times, CNC Cycle Start, CNC Cycle End, CNC Cycle Time, Probe Macro Measurement, CNC Machine Tool Changes, Feed Rate Override, Machine Hold, etc.

Most modern CNC's have the capability to send customized messages out there RS-232 port during part program execution. The most common example of this is the DPRNT statement included with FANUC's Macro B option. ShopMonitor is designed to "listen" for messages sent out from CNC Machine Tools and almost any kind of message can be constructed and DPRNTed out of the CNC. CNC Machine Event Signatures as created in ShopMonitor's Event Monitoring Software and when CNC Macro DPRNT Prints out of a CNC ShopMonitor will capture, parse and store these Events in it's database to use for ShopReports.
