Why JITbase

Workforce efficiency vs. KPI tracking

Collecting live data from machines to track OEE is considered a key milestone in the Industry 4.0 journey, yet Machine Monitoring Systems suffer from a bad reputation:

X Limited to no payback

X Nice-to-have tool that does not bring improvement (“I know my machines are inactive 70% of the time, I don’t need to pay a system to tell me”)
X Perceived by operators as systems to track employees

Based on these observations, JITbase worked in collaboration with leading manufacturing companies in the precision machining sector to develop a system that uses machine data to improve production planning and scheduling and better manage human resources on the shopfloor.

Although we use machine data, JITbase is not a traditional Machine Monitoring System or MES software that tracks OEE, but is a Production Planning & Workforce Management System.

Features that traditional Machine
Monitoring System or MES software can’t provide

Based on years of R&D, JITbase transforms machine data into data about the workforce and CNC programs that no one else has.
This new layer of information unlocks new capabilities:

Track Tool path, changeover & M00 standard times

Improve costing and planning

Improve CNC programs

Improve job & operator allocation

Track Operator Workload

Live guidance for Operators

Live job advancement 

Production Planning & Scheduling
