Learn About Integrating Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service with Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service

If you manually collect data from sensors on your production equipment, you may find that you're reacting to production yield and quality problems. However, by integrating with Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Production Monitoring Cloud Service, you can monitor all of your production lines in real time, across all of your factories, and predict when problems will occur.

Before You Begin

Before integrating Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service with Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service, review the related design solution. See Learn about options for connecting devices to Oracle Internet of Things applications.

Architecture

Use Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Production Monitoring Cloud Service to connect directly to Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service.

You import production work orders managed by Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service into Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service. Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service defines work orders with resource types, (for example, machine and operator type). During the import process, Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service automatically creates all the machine and operator types, instances of resources (for example, machines and operators defined in Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service), and factories.

To the imported work orders, you can add imported machines to a production line, and add production lines to a factory. You can add operator types to specific machines on a production line. Integration with Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service helps track real time status of work orders developed in Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service.

The architecture diagram illustrates this flow:

  1. Production work orders are imported from Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service into Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service.
  2. Machines are added to the imported work order.
  3. Machines are added to a production line.
  4. A production line is added to a factory.

About Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service

Oracle Internet of Things (IoT) Production Monitoring Cloud Service helps you monitor production facility performance and the health of production equipment within each facility.

Sensor devices installed on production equipment use cellular, satellite, or Bluetooth connections to transmit real-time performance data to Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service. You can use real-time and historic data to diagnose and predict production equipment failures and to reduce unplanned production shutdowns.

You can use two key performance indicators provided by Oracle IoT Production Monitoring Cloud Service to manage factories and machines that are pending orders. You can use custom key performance indicators to determine the utilization and health of production equipment and get real-time production data for each of your production facilities. This data can also help you determine the production facilities or machines that are performing optimally or that are underperforming.

You can compare your factory or machine with the best performers, or view historical data to contextualize the current performance data. You can also monitor warnings that may anticipate future production issues, as well as monitor and track the current incidents and their resolution.

You can monitor the performance of your factories at different levels, starting from a global perspective and then narrowing your view to the health of specific machines:

  • Factory Level: View your production lines as they appear on your shop floor, and select a specific production line for more details.

  • Product Level: Monitor the progress of your production, view diagrams for product routing, and identify bottlenecks.

  • Machine Level: View machine availability statistics, view the associated sensor data to identify problem areas, and identify machine issues that affect production output.

About Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service

Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service delivers core discrete manufacturing capabilities in the cloud that enable you to efficiently set up, manage, execute, and cost your production operations. It supports in-house and contract manufacturing activities of standard and configured products executed to plan or to order. It also supports scenarios where one or more operations of a work order are outsourced to a supplier that provides specialized manufacturing services. It complements other Oracle Supply Chain Management Cloud applications by providing a comprehensive and complete supply chain solution for discrete manufacturing companies.

Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service empowers manufacturing engineers with web-based interface tools to build a foundation of manufacturing plant data, and design the discrete manufacturing process for items. Additionally, the application offers intuitive visualization for ease of use.

You can quickly define the necessary manufacturing setup data of your plant hierarchy. It helps you establish process standards with a standardized data model for production operations, which you can adapt to changing business processes and market conditions.

Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service offers robust capabilities for work order and orderless execution. With interfaces designed and optimized for use on a tablet, it provides a rich user experience for production operators. The application also facilitates information-driven execution by providing insight into production information with several visual cues that prompt users to take appropriate actions. It helps you improve productivity of your shop floor personnel through simplified reporting, and the ability to enter data by using scanning devices.

Your production supervisors can manage plant and work center resource working times by defining shift and resource exceptions. Oracle Fusion Manufacturing Cloud Service helps in managing work order production with in-house and supplier operations.
