The operational status of the asset. See Asset Status for details.

Tip

You can click the icon to show its utilization chart in the utilization pane. See the Utilization Chart for details.

The door state. See New Indicators for details.

image14.png

The asset location.

image15.png

The plant name.

Total Job Count reflects the job count value sent from the machine controller. See New Metrics for details.

image17.png

Shift Job Count indicates the number of jobs done by a machine tool during the current shift.

image18.png

Shift Job / h shows the number of jobs done by a machine tool per hour during the current shift.

The subscription type. See Subscription Types for details.

Tip

You can click it to request a quote for PRO subscriptions, or apply for free PRO Trial subscriptions. See Subscription Management for details.

Overall health indicator to address assets in different states. See Asset Status for details.

image21.png

The connection state of the asset. It only appears when an asset is disconnected from the cloud.

image22.png

A notification icon to show whether the user has subscribed to any event notifications about the asset. See Notification Management for details.

The status of axial temperature sensors. See Sensor Status for more information. There are no set categories or fixed names for machine tool sensors. Each sensor can be configurable and varied by different machine types and manufacturers, thus the temperature charts are generated based on the sensors that are picked up from the device.

Tip

Click the icon to open the temperature chart below under the Sensors pane.

The program information. If a program is currently running on an asset with a PRO subscription, this area shows the program name, cumulative execution time, measurement speed, and ideal performance percentage.

SFx Asset Management calculates production efficiency within a specified period for a machine tool and monitors its working condition in the Detail View by:

New Indicators

  • Controller Mode — Indicates the currently applied controller mode in the machine tool

  • Door State — Indicates the current state of the door in the machine tool

Tip

Hover your mouse cursor over any icon next to the name of a machine tool, you can view the details of the indicator via a tooltip.

There are five controller modes defined for a machine tool. See the table below for the description of each mode.

New Metrics

The following three metrics are performance data changing dynamically over time depending on the production efficiency of a machine tool.

  • Total Job Count — Reflects the job count value sent from the machine controller.

    When a program is completed, the total number of jobs done by the machine tool during the program will be displayed as the Total Job Count. This is an increment value, which will be increased cumulatively as more and more jobs are done on the asset.

  • Shift Job Count — Indicates the number of jobs done by a machine tool during the current shift.

  • Shift Job / h — Shows the number of jobs done by a machine tool per hour during the current shift.

Tip

Note

  • Only an Asset Administrator has permission to edit asset properties and create production schedules for an asset.

  • If you haven’t set a production schedule in which shifts are included for an asset yet, then the Shift Job Count and Shift Job / h will show a null value.
