With the Cycle Time Assist system, you can effortlessly keep an eye on the cycle times of your entire system. In this way, you can quickly detect cycle time deviations in individual machines or entire production lines and take countermeasures at an early stage to avoid productivity losses. To do this, the Cycle Time Assist records the parts cycle of Control plus-based machines and displays it on the machine's user interface in real time. In addition to the parts cycle, the Cycle Time Assist can start a detailed machine recording over a freely selectable period of time. In doing so, the assistance system logs all the activities of the machine – from every single movement up to communication times with other IT systems: Thanks to the Cycle Time Assist and the optimized interface to Cycle Time Analysis, it is easy to find out where the cycle time deviation comes from.
