“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

After a 12 year-old Ryan visited the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, he knew he wanted to part of how America makes things. With continued interest in the art and science of manufacturing, Ryan pursued his Bachelors in International Business at Calvin College. After graduating, he realized his dream of working with manufacturing by holding client relations positions throughout the manufacturing industry. At Malisko, Ryan enjoys bringing together the right people for the right job to tackle complex projects, and helping to bring the total solution to the client's plant floor.

Personal Passion
He likes spending time with his family and helping his children to blaze their own trail.

Dream Job
Build houses for Habitat for Humanity

Interesting Fact
He secretly likes the handy-man "fix-it" list his wife gives him every weekend. (Shhh! don't tell her that though!)

OUR APPROACH

REPORTING

Our reporting information is comprehensive and focused, providing you with data you can use. With our system in place, you and your team will be able to measure your system’s efficiency, consistency and performance over time. And if you’re in a regulated industry, our system uses certifiable electronic signatures, audit trails and batch records to help you meet FDA computer system validation requirements.

DATA TRACKING AND OEE REVIEW

Pick up any manufacturing business journal today, and you’ll see mentions of Overall Equipment Effectiveness; OEE. It’s constantly on the minds of plant managers. But what does it mean? OEE is a key performance indicator and there’s a good chance it can help your bottom line.

The OEE measure is based on four important metrics: loading, availability, performance and quality. OEE can help gauge the efficiency, productivity, and potential of your entire operation. If you have a mix of old and new equipment, equipment variety, documentation inconsistency, employee turnover and other factors odds are you have room for improvement.

At Malisko Engineering, we’re experienced in efficiency. We have a tenacious, multi-disciplined team of engineers, designers, programmers, automation and validation specialists with the know-how to help identify exactly how productive your equipment is and how productive it can become.

BATCH DATA TRACKING

Once your automation system has been designed, selected and coded, we can set up batch reports, where your system provides you a full summary of the key variables you need to measure each lot of product that you produce. Batch reports typically include process measurements at specific time intervals, batch start time, batch stop time, operator comments, recipe data, such as target and actual material additions to the batch, and other useful key performance indicators. You can use this important record to assess whether or not your process is staying within spec and if your system produces batches of product within spec.

TRENDING DATA TRACKING

While our batch reports deliver you actionable information from individual batches, it’s useful to have a measuring stick for those reports. That’s why the systems we implement can provide you trending reports that show your system performance over time. It collects process data over time at defined intervals and stores that data in a database. With this historical data in hand, your team can perform statistical process analysis to determine whether or not your process is in control.

We design and implement your system with the absolute highest quality, and we can provide 24/7 technical support for your system. If and when process irregularities arise, you’ll know why, and you’ll know early enough to correct them before they become major problems.

ALARMING & ALARM MANAGEMENT

To further protect your system and production, we set up top-quality alarm reporting that increases operator response effectiveness. And we drastically reduce nuisance alarms that sap operator time, by setting alarm limits and priorities so your operators can react to alarm deviations before they lead to more substantial and potentially devastating process issues.

In addition to standard, real-time alarming, we develop alarming reports that show just about everything your team needs to know about your alarms. From alarm types and alarm frequencies to alarm timestamps, allotted alarm response time and everything in between — we can provide it all.

DOWNTIME DATA TRACKING

Without an automated system or even with an out-dated automated system, you’re left with either paper records or no records. If you use paper records, your operator has to actively and accurately record each downtime, the length of that downtime and the reasons for it. Implementing our reporting system, you can automatically capture when your process or machine is not functioning. And your system will either automatically record a reason for the downtime or prompt your operator to do so.

After the downtime event, you’ll be able to access that information from a database so if your process or machine isn’t working, you’ll know and if it’s not running at optimal capacity, you’ll know why.

MEETING FDA COMPLIANCE

We ensure that our systems comply with FDA Title 21 CFR Part 11 regulations and can provide you with the computer system validation (CSV) documentation to meet regulatory compliance.

PRE-DEPLOYMENT TESTING ASSURES DATA ACCURACY

Reporting data provides you with what you need to better understand your operation, both in the short-term and over time. And it can catch issues that arise before they cause process or machine problems. Furthermore, before we implement your system, we conduct thorough system integration testing in a controlled environment.

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION FOR RESULTS

In our more than 20 years of helping manufacturers, we’ve intelligently applied automation for hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries. And we’ve earned repeat business from 90 percent of our clients.

Have a question or do you want more output, fewer lost batches and better reports? We can show you how to improve your production and maximize your successes through industrial automation.
