Member of the Moravia Steel Group Kovárna VIVA is one of the most modern forges in Central Europe. We design and manufacture a wide range of stainless steel parts for the world’s leading industries. The results of our work are unique solutions and first-class quality. He designs and manufactures drop forgings from the highest quality steel for the best companies in the world industry.
In 2022, the systems continue to be expanded to other production sections and maintenance facilities.
Thanks to the PMT system, we obtain data directly from the machines and can monitor production in real time. The current connection with the ERP system makes it possible to monitor the utilization of individual workplaces and compliance with performance standards, which brings a more accurate allocation of capacity in the production plan. Undistorted data also point to the most common causes of downtime. By eliminating the causes of these downtimes, production capacity is increased at the same operating costs. “
The Infor EAM software solution with the iWi extension helped us a lot in the digitization of maintenance processes. For asset management, we have the opportunity to have all the data in one system. We now have a database of requirements in the form of a helpdesk, we plan preventive, predictive and other inspections, we obtain online real and measurable data on all machines, equipment and activities that take place across our company. We see the history of repairs and all activities, including the breakdown of specific maintenance workers, their electronic work report and specific staffing. We are able to plan work for both individuals and groups of people. The system is also connected to the warehouse management and allows us online access to all spare parts, their issue, receipt and placement in specific positions in the warehouse. At KPIs, we can find out not only the parameters of machine operability (MTTR, MTBF, MTTR, MTTD), but also quantify events in the system for finances and then compare real and actual costs with planned ones.
