How Does Wave7 Work?

Wave7 lets you improve packaging machine and line performance in real time. Here's how it works...

Step 1: Listen

You’ll never wonder if your machine is treating your customer right (or vice versa!).  Active Alerts sends you a text or email letting you know a machine is down or is heading there.

Active Alerts

Step 2: Understand

So now you know you’ve got trouble, and Wave7 can help you pinpoint it in less than 60 seconds.  Use the Downtime App or Production App to identify the issue and troubleshoot the cause – in real time.

The Wave7 Story

I’m David McKay, the President and founder of Wave7, the #1 performance improvement service for packaging lines.

David McKay
Wave7 is used around the world to improve machine and human performance on packaging machines and packaging lines.  Why?  Because Wave7 has three unique advantages:
  1. Wave7 is both a performance improvement method (M2L) and app

  2. Wave7 is a service, not a toolkit you have to provision and build

  3. Wave7 only presents actionable information 

Stop wondering how to get data, and start using Wave7

For the past 25 years I’ve either been using, developing or delivering software and hardware that delivers information from manufacturing, IT or machines to humans. The express goal was always to improve performance, but something was always missing.  Several somethings, actually.  

When you get raw data from any kind of process, you have turn it into actionable information.    Actionable information requires:

  1. Correlation.  The data needs to be assigned to some real world events.

  2. Aggregation.  The correlated data needs to be put into containers that can be assigned to assets and a date/time event (like a shift).

  3. Analytics.  The aggregated data must be turned into actionable information.

  4. Methodology.  Actionable information needs to be modified to fit within a method for improvement that people understand.

  5. Presentation.  Actionable information must be real-time, with push alerts and interactive apps, available on any device.

Guess what?  That’s a big ask. 

It's all about the method

If you want to build a winning race car, you don’t throw a bunch of random speed parts at it and hope.   You need a method to improve man and machine at every race.  If you stick to the method and keep adapting to changing conditions, over time you WILL improve.  

That’s the basis for Wave7’s success.  We’ve developed the best in class performance improvement method for packaging machines and packaging lines, and we’ve baked into our cloud service.

Don't try to build it, just use it

The usual suspects, Rockwell, Siemens, Schneider, Wonderware (Aviva), et all., would have you believe you should build it yourself.   BS!

You aren’t a software company.  Nor are you a performance consultant, or security expert or any of the other things it takes to run software as a service.   We’ve spent more than 50 man years building out a solution so you can just use it.   

Stay with your expertise in manufacturing the best products in  your industry, and we’ll help you put them in boxes better and faster than you ever have before.

Don't analyze, take action!

Everything in Wave7 is actionable.  Our goal is for you to do one of two things:

  1. Look at the Wave7 app and move directly to the problem location, OR

  2. Click on the Wave7 metric, drill down to the specific issue, THEN move directly to the problem location

I don’t want you to schedule a meeting or open an excel spreadsheet, I want you to be able to get a notification, look at Wave7 and move to the problem.
