“ÅF Pöyry Pulse” – production support

“ÅF Pöyry Pulse” is a production support system that helps you to maximise availability in your industrial processes by means of smart functions and an interface that provides your employees with support for making decisions and a more proactive working method.

Useful basis for decision-making

Using a production support system as the foundation for ongoing and methodical improvement work often results in direct positive improvement. The direct gain is a higher level of productivity and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), but there are also other indirect effects that have an influence on production, e.g. better communication between departments, reduced maintenance costs and more proactive behaviour in operations, which contributes to more sustainable industrial activity. The information collected via “ÅF Pöyry Pulse” also serves as important decision data for activities and investment.

Bringing together humans and technology

Combining data from processes and equipment with information from humans creates the best foundation for decisions, providing a basis for continuous improvement work. Proactive input prevents costly losses.
