Blackbird installation and operational experience

PROS

Ease of setup. Intuitive user and administrative interface. We were up and running within a few hours on our first production line and after validation have expanded to several production lines without any major issues. Additionally they provide very good user support.

CONS

Standard reporting could be improved but we have found that Blackbird have provided customised BI reports to meet our specific Company reporting requirements

Vendor Response

Great system with fantastic customer support

From the time we made the first call, they have been extremely supportive to our needs, their team has even helped us set up custom reporting that we use in our daily production meeting. They have always been prompt in responding to our needs and this system has helped improve our OEEs on our lines by focusing on the issues driven by real data.

PROS

Very easy to implement Customer serviceConstantly improving system and features

CONS

No mobile app.

Reason for choosing Factbird

For the cost and most importantly the support that we received, Blackbird was clearly the better choice for us. There are a lot of systems out there, but for me the support that we receive before and after is extremely important and is a bonus to a already powerful system.

Vendor Response

Blackbird, a great OEE and downtime analysis tool

PROS

Once deployed the software is reliable and incredibly easy to use providing detailed insight into OEE and downtime reasons.

CONS

Our initial install process was time-consuming and challenging for our particular use cast. However, I'm sure for more typical factory production line systems deployment and integration would be easy.

Vendor Response

Fantastic performance management system

I have worked with the system in multiple companies and what most common areas to improve has been the overall capacity, efficiency, and changeovers. But also to understand our flow and speed in a whole new level. We have worked a lot with improve specific product due to the batch function as well.

PROS

I think that it's not one thing there stands out, but the system in total.For us it's a great way to collect our data, compare, analyse etc. and therefore be smarter in our day to day decisions.

CONS

There i would say that you cant fully design all your needs, but thats understandable.

Reason for choosing Factbird

Because they have a fantastic team behind, and are adaptable in all situations

Holts Review

Up until the point of Blackbird introduction, we were relying on manual data collection when it comes to OEE calculations. This unfortunately was not giving us a true picture. Blackbird introduced correct data collection/calculation and what's more important substantially boosted workforce interest in OEE itself and line performance in general. Couldn't recommend Blackbird more!

PROS

Streamlined front end, accurate data collection, ease of use, great customer service.

CONS

The only thing I would like to see in the future is integrated file system. File allocation against Products would allow us to allocate Finished Goods Specs and Safety Documentation directly in to Blackbird.

Vendor Response

We really appreciate your feedback and will take it into consideration for future updates. We look forward to continuing to support you and your team in the future. Thank you for choosing Blackbird!
