ActionPLAN, Powered by MobiNET, is HTM™ Sensors’ Unplanned Downtime Manager. A military-grade, secure technology that delivers real-time industrial data analytics on data collected from Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and other automation devices (including IIoT), providing quantitative-based, actionable information to drive industrial process efficiency and maximize productivity while minimizing unplanned downtime and cost. ActionPLAN, Powered by MobiNET has been architected to ensure security, ease of deployment and scalability. Learn more.

Knowing exactly where to look to solve production issues is crucial to eliminating the root causes of downtime. The dream of the industrial internet of things (IIoT) is to connect every single input in the production line to a central data processor, so that you can analyze the data and pinpoint the exact location of your downtime in minutes. For automotive manufacturers, downtime can cost thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars per minute, so it’s critical to have an advantage when the clock is ticking. ActionPLAN, Powered by MobiNET, a machine data service from HTM™ Sensors, is one system that provides this advantage. Learn more.

We get to the truth – to the one input in your plant that is costing you the most money, lost parts and time in your plant. Time is money. In an automotive manufacturing environment, ActionPLAN, Powered by MobiNET uses a live data stream to track sensors, valves, safety, robots – anything electric on the machine is tracked, right from the machine PLC through the network. There is no operator entering information, no barcode, just true information straight from the machine.

Like most MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, HTM™ Sensors will simply install a computer box processor at the machine PLC with a network cable output and standard 120 V power input. This industrial hardened Data Collection Device (DCD) sends data securely up into the cloud for processing, the data is then delivered over the internet to desktop computers, lap tops or other devices such as your smart phone. All data is encrypted and transmitted using Route1’s CryptoPath high assurance communication service. The MobiNET platform combines the strength of a PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) technology with the trust and flexibility of multi-factor authentication, meeting the stringent security mandates and policies established by governments, defense organizations and commercial enterprises.

With other competitor systems, you can aggregate high-level data about your runtime statistics. But you have a lot of sensors in any machine cell, and when you have a failure, it crashes and goes down. But which sensor caused the issue? If there are multiple sensors, competitor’s practice may be to start switching out sensors, trying to generate the fault again in order to determine the cause. But the clock is still ticking. Our system will point to the exact sensor through a typical HMI (Human-Machine Interface) screen commonly found in automotive plants, and over the last month, last week, or 24-hour time period, will show you which one is continually giving you problems. Those reports allow you to adjust scheduling and manage time with your people to send electricians or maintenance people directly to the correct spot. Our system also allows us to do a search, so that after a tooling or Continuous Improvement change, our system can track the results and show exactly how much downtime and savings came from that change. In some machines, you have an A side and a B side, and our system can show data for each of those sides, machines, cells, and lines in the plant. It drills down to the one spot that is giving you the most problems.

Our system also works together with other MES and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems. Where other systems track start time, end time, runtime and total production, none of these other systems can get down to the input level. Learn more.
