Enhancements

Date Range Selector - Time Selection Option

The calendar date range selector now includes a Time Selection option, which you can set to either Calendar or Production, as follows.

  • Calendar: Defines a Day as starting and ending at midnight by default. In this mode, you can also enter specific timestamps when Live Data is turned off.
  • Production: Defines a Day as starting at the beginning of the first shift, and ending at the end of the last shift. For example, the Production Day for a particular machine might start at 7 am and end at 7 am the next day.

If you create a timeseries chart, and group by either Day, Week, or Month, the grouping is calculated based on your Time Selection in the date range selector.

Data Fields Menu - New Layout

The Data Fields menus now have an updated layout, which improves searchability and context.

  • This new layout is visible when you are analyzing any manufacturing model (Cycles, Downtimes, Parts, and Defects).
  • Rather than try to display all of the contextual information at once, the menu now allows you to select the attribute that you want visible (Machine Type, Data Field Type, Raw Field Name, or Stream).
  • Regardless of which attribute you select, all of them are searched when you type into the search bar.

In addition, when you are in multi-select mode, the field accumulator on the right side of the menu makes it easier to reorder items. You can do either of the following:

  • Click and drag the three-bars icon.
  • Click the item number and type a new number.
