How can you improve your cobot’s performance with analytics? What are the best metrics to use? This new eBook is the essential guide!

Perhaps you’ve been using your robot for a while, or perhaps you are just getting started. The robot isn’t delivering the performance you expected. You suspect that you can improve its performance, but where do you start? If you’re not a robotics expert, it’s hard to know.

Improve Your Cobot’s Performance With Analytics

You worry that your integration might be the problem — what if the robot wasn’t integrated properly in the first place!?

You fear that you chose the wrong technology — what if collaborative robots don’t live up to their promises?

You are concerned by the lack of robotics expertise in your team — what if you have to call up the integrators for every little change? That could get expensive!

What you need is some more data…

How well is my robot really performing?

Without reliable data, it’s hard to tell how good a robot’s performance really is. Some users are tempted to just “set it and forget it” with their cobot applications, especially if they have used industrial robots in the past where this is often the only option. If they see low production figures from the robot cell, they worry that it might have been a bad choice.

One huge benefit of cobots is that you can tweak and optimize their programming over time. This makes it easy to boost productivity, iron out problems and adapt to changes in the process. However, you need data to be able to make these changes effectively. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are essential for monitoring your robot.

But I already measure KPIs in my business!

Yes, you probably use several KPIs to measure the performance of your business. For example, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is kind of the “gold standard” KPI for manufacturing businesses. It integrates the performance, availability and quality of a machine. Many businesses use it to measure the performance of almost every type of manufacturing equipment, from CNC machines to packing machines.

Surely you can use OEE to monitor cobots as well?
