Okuma’s Connect Plan is a system that provides analytics for improved utilization by connecting machine tools and visual control of factory operation results and machining records. Simply connect the OSP and a PC and install the Factory Monitor suite on the PC to see the machine operation status from the shop floor, from an office, from anywhere.
The Connect Plan is an ideal solution for customers trying to raise their machine utilization.

Connect Plan Benefits
Analyze your factory present and past, improve the future

Factory operation control

This function reduces machine stop times and raises utilization by visualizing past and present operation results, for analysis and future improvements. By visualizing current operating results, machine stoppages can be noticed quickly and corrective measures can be taken. With alarm notification, steps can be taken even earlier and machine stop time can be decreased.
The system also lets you visualize not only the past utilization rate but also the alarm history and operation history. Causes of machine stops can be pinpointed and analyzed, and improvements can be made. Maintenance and check times can also be visualized with various maintenance icons, and future breakdowns can be prevented by reliably performing machine maintenance.

Machining records management

Machining records management is a function to achieve machining traceability by tying together the individual ID of the machined workpiece and the machining results and gauging results for each machine. Who, when, where, and what kind of machining was done, and the gauging results obtained, can be easily checked. If there is a problem with a workpiece, the cause can be analyzed and high quality production can be achieved with greater assurance.

Remote diagnostics

Okuma's remote diagnostics allows the screen from a customer’s machine to be viewed by the Okuma Service Center when a problem occurs, so that a diagnosis can be made while looking at the same screen for accurate communication.

Consent is received from the customer before the Okuma Service Center connects to their machine. During diagnosis, the connection can be terminated at any time by the customer's operator.
