Real-time machine status monitoring software

EMO 2017

MM Awards Winner Solution
CAD/CAM system category

NCSIMUL MONITOR returns machine status, either manually from the NC console or automatically. It delivers native support for OPC, the international interoperability standard for industrial automation.

This means that a machine's status can be reported in real time with details of output, failures, downtime, setups, etc. This data can be used to generate activity reports in table or graph form to enable specific situations to be analyzed and more efficient production planning. Status reporting also enables the execution of quality scenarios and more sophisticated supervision processes. Interfaced with an ERP or Production Management package providing links to work/planned orders, the module provides feedback on productivity rates (OEE*, ORR*, EIRR*) in a single click.

* Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Overall Rate of Return (ORR), Economic Internal Rate of Return (EIRR).


  • Errors caused by manual actions appear in the NC program
  • You spend too much time transferring your NC programs to your CNC machines
  • Changes you make to your programs are not traceable
  • You use multiple systems to transfer your CNC programs
  • The NC program uploaded was not the right version

  • Machine status monitoring, in real time, with details of outputs, failures, downtime, setup, etc.
  • Increase machine productivity
  • Ease of use
  • Real-time machine status monitoring: machine status (outputs, failures, downtime, setup, etc.) and no-production alerts
  • Automatic report generation: activity report, situation analysis and production improvement plan
  • All types of NC links are supported and supplied standard (RS232, Ethernet, NFS, Mazak, etc.)
  • Support for NFE60-180 indicators: Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Overall Rate of Return (ORR), Economic Internal Rate of Return (EIRR)
