Provideam v3.6 Released

August 19, 2009

We are delighted to announce that Provideam v3.6 is now released. This release has taken slightly longer than anticipated but I’m sure you will agree that the new functionality is worth the wait.

Updating your Provideam installation to the latest release helps to protect your Provideam investment and ensures that the product will continue to run even when operating systems and browsers are upgraded.

Manual Data EntryNew FeatureIt is not always cost-effective or practical to collect production data automatically. Service Pack 3.6 provides an interface to enable you to enter production data manually.
Planning Module (Beta)New FeatureA Beta version of the new Provideam Planning Module is also now available. The Planning Module enables you to enter production schedules and then link the schedule data to the production on your machines.
Thus you are able to report on production performance against your production plans. Provideam provides Gantt chart analysis to show when production is planned to start on various work orders. The Gantt charts forewarn you of machines where the planned start dates will not be met due to machine underperformance. 
Fwd/Back Button on ReportEnhancementA Forward and Back Button is now available on Provideam Reports to allow you to quickly and easily navigate to the previous or next report period.
Drilldown on DashboardEnhancementWe have introduced Drilldown features on the Dashboard. In this first phase you are able to drill down through data on the OEE Analysis Pane to determine when downtime actually occurred.
Period ExclusionNew FeatureYou are now able to exclude specific shifts from your reports. If you generate a week report and you wish to exclude the Sunday night shift – you can now do this.
Chart Legend CharactersBug FixesGraph Legends did not accept the comma character. This has now been fixed.
7Day PeriodEnhancementA new report period has been included in the Report Wizard. It is now be possible to generate reports for a defined 7 day period, and to schedule these reports for automatic email delivery.
