The return part of the CLI loop that retrieves batch results from production in real-time. iBatch reconciles the (actual) batch ticket’s material weights and codes with the (target) Quadrel mix’s; calculates cost and quality variance; evaluates production tolerances per ASTM C94 requirements; and archives bill of materials (materials codes and weights).
Retrieves batch tickets in real-time from batch panel or dispatch.
Logs failed batch downloads for batches containing unrecognized materials.
Analyzes batching trends for specified time-interval using control, histogram, and cusum charts.
Identifies issues such as over-batching, under-performing, or high variability.
Summarizes batching cost performance in real-time enterprise reports.
iBatch lets you analyze batched material types and amounts versus the original Quadrel mix design. With its easy to use search and tree organization, batches by specified time periods, sizes, projects and plants.Then drill-down to specific ASTM material types and view batching performance by material type.iBatch presents results both in numeric tables and sophisticated charts that are exportable.
iBatch analyzes batching accuracy versus the original mix design target.Now for a given material type of selected batches, you can analyze batching consistency and variability using control charts (shown here), accuracy using histograms, and trending using cusum charts. Such user-friendly analytic tools enable you to troubleshoot poor batching outliers, identify top performing plants, enforce operational benchmarks, and control batching performance overall.
How are you performing across operations given changing materials, plant utilization, seasons, etc.? With iBatch’s enterprise tables, view a summary snapshot of your cross-plant performance in one click. Across all plants, view batched material volumes, costs, and accuracy (vs. the original mix design). And most importantly, reference total cost to assess the overall financial impact of poor batching performance. Note: Total cost is material cost per yard x error amount (volume difference from mix design).
