The First Cloud-Based COO/TCO and OEE Software Platform
Understanding manufacturing costs is the first step to increasing profits. The ability to effectively identify cost drivers and manage cost reductions is a competitive advantage felt from your customer base to Wall Street.
Now there is a software platform that measures up to your critical needs. TWO COOL® is the only Cloud-based, cross platform, comprehensive Cost of Ownership (COO) and Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) analysis tool. Developed at the request of DARPA/SEMATECH, TWO COOL® is designed to help equipment and process engineers as well as suppliers understand process step level impacts of changes in operating parameters. Whether you need to know the cost impact of capital equipment purchases, alternative processes, or OEE improvements, TWO COOL® is THE choice.

COO is an implementation of Activity-Based Costing (ABC) that helps in understanding all the costs associated with a manufacturing operation. It improves the decision-making process by relating costs to the products, processes, and services that drive them. Without such a linkage it is difficult for organizations to understand the full impact of their decisions on operations. TWO COOL® provides this link through a consistent, Cloud-based, data-driven method that reduces the risks in strategic decisions.
Automatic Pareto analysis focuses attention on the top cost drivers
IBM breaks down the advantages of Cloud computing into three areas; flexibility; efficiency; and strategic value. Flexibility allows the scaling of computing power to the task at hand regardless of the local machine used to connect. Efficiency is accessing the needed applications from anywhere in the world from any connected device. Strategic value comes from being able to move faster than competitors by not being tied to existing infrastructure and the hesitancy to obsolete major information technology (IT) investments.
Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. has leveraged these advantages by moving TWO COOL® to the Cloud. In addition to the advantages inherent in Cloud computing, this move provides Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc.’s clients substantial cost advantages by lowering up front licensing costs and shifting from capital budgeting to more flexible expense accounting.
One advantage in moving these applications to the Cloud is users benefit from a state-of-the art computing system. Modeling apps are computing power intensive. Instead of each user requiring a high-end workstation, the Cloud allows users to share a virtual machine(s) (VM). When needs increase, upgrading the VM is quick and low-cost. This keeps the total cost of ownership (TCO) for IT infrastructure at a minimum.
Another advantage is updates happen behind the scenes and for all users at the same time. Traditional software maintenance costs disappear. No more scenarios where users are operating on different revision levels nor lose data due to forgotten backups.
Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. utilizes the latest generation in Cloud architecture allowing users to easily upgrade virtual machine (VM) performance as well as storage capabilities (HDD, SSD). This architecture utilizes a gateway server to manage incoming Internet log in traffic and directs authorized users to the management server before passing the user on to the session host. The session hosts provide a full desktop experience to the users regardless of the device used to connect.
State-of-the-Art Cloud Architecture provides flexibility and security
Concerns about data security have also been addressed. All of Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc.’s Cloud-based software products and training classes reside on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud. In addition to the security provided by Microsoft, Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. utilizes multi-factor authentication (MFA) from Cisco Systems’ Duo Security.
