Our services

A+K plans and creates software for MDE/BDE/OEE solutions.

We advise you on the structure of your system. We analyse your plant and your machinery.

We show you which information is useful for you, because too much information recklessly recorded can very quickly put a heavy strain on your budget.

We cover all the necessary areas, from consulting and planning to engineering, commissioning, training and support.

We define the required machines and data points with you, conduct the necessary clarification discussions with the interface partners and document everything in a specification sheet.

We define with you the necessary screen masks for manual messages (BDE) and link your machines for automatic recording (MDE).

If you want to run your OEE on your SAP/ERP system, we couple directly to your ERP and send all necessary information to your SAP/ERP.

We put your system into operation, train your employees and accompany you during start-up.

Our standard support is there for you on weekdays from Mo-Fr 08:00 -17:00. In addition, we are happy to support you with services coordinated according to your needs up to 24/7.

The added value for you

A data acquisition project for BDE/MDE/OEE can get out of hand very quickly. Many companies think that collecting as much data as possible would be of great help.

The basic idea is correct, but each data point captured must be clarified, programmed and validated. This is the biggest cost factor.

In addition, each data point that has to be manually captured has an impact on the working time of the employees at the machines.

Furthermore, for each data point captured and archived, resources must be allocated for network performance, CPU capacity, disk space and backup capacity.

Example: In 1994, a customer commissioned 14,000 data points for a greenfield project. After a 2-year commissioning phase with validation of all machine parameters, the customer abandoned the project for economic reasons.

We have been creating MDE/BDE/OEE systems for small and large companies for well over 20 years.

Each data point must be robust and reliable, because incorrect measured values can quickly lead to wrong decisions, high expenses and resulting high follow-up costs.

Our best practice has been reliable and successful for decades for both small and large plants with hundreds of machines.

Put your trust in experience. Please contact us, and we will be happy to discuss your project with you.
