Hotspots Overview

The Hotspot module displays the list of motions that accumulate the variances over a period. It also shows the number of occurrences each day that contributed to the accumulated variances. enVision only uses non-faulted cycles for the hotspots calculation. This module shows the accumulated effects of minor variances in certain motions that can cause significant production loss (leakage) over time. For example, for a 60 second cycle time machine, a one second delay in one motion will cause approximately one part per hour production leakage.

Heat Map (Lesson 4-1)

The Hotspot module uses a heat map to display the differences in variations and occurrences. No or low amounts would register as Greener in color. As the amounts increase, the Greens will transition to Yellow, Orange, and into Red. Red would be a higher number than green.

Date Range Selector (BA)  (Lesson 4-2)

Set Date Range

You can select the date range you would like for the Hotspot module using the drop-down calendar located in the upper left corner. 

Views (Accumulated Over Cycle Time _ Occurrences)  (Lesson 4-3)


Use the Variance Accumulation tab located in the right corner of the module for the variance view. In the Variance view, the module lets you see the amount of over cycle variance for each hour (in Minutes) of your object cycle.

Hour Detail

By Clicking on any of the individual cells in the hotspot module, you can access a more detailed breakdown of over cycle processes in that hour. The number represents the Over cycle occurrences for that hour.

By selecting the Cell 40 on the figure below, this will display a detailed table revealing a comprehensive breakdown of processes that contributed to the accumulated over cycle time for that hour selected. Hovering over the bar will display the data for your selection.

Clicking on the object bar will display a table of object data that may be sorted by clicking a column header to the top line.

The View Cycle button will open a new browser window with the object data for that selected cycle object.


This tab shows the Variance Accumulation (in minutes) as well as the Overcycle Occurrences from a specific dates selected to view. This data can be exported to excel. Click the yellow button and it will start a download to an excel file. A tab will open on the bottom left side of the browser,that will show the options to Open to view, plot, and send the excel data.

Model Breakdown

This Model Breakdown reveals a graph of Occurrences and Variance based upon Model Type. Hovering over the bar will reveal the details of the bar. 

Pivot – Hotspots

Hotspots now has a new feature that will allow you to plot data on a Pivot Table.  While in Hotspots, click on the Pivot tab to the right of the Model Breakdown Tab. Clicking on this will reopen the Hotspots window to a Pivot style table. 

From here, you can click on the “Show Field Chooser” Icon on the upper right hand side of the pivot table. This will open the Field Chooser setup window.


Choose from the All Fields area by checking the box, the dragging it over to the Row, Column, Filter, and Data fields. When this action is commencing, the Pivot table will populate and display your choices.

After your fields are set, you can click the x (close window) at the upper right hand corner of the Field Chooser window.


Drill Drown Capability to the Device Level (Navigating 3.6) (Lesson 4-4) 

Use the Main Tree to navigate to the objects you want to view in a Hotspots report.

Once you have chosen your object, click on the Hotspot tab on the top menu. The module will launch after selecting the Hotspot tab. Each colored box in the module represents the number of over cycle Occurrences that occurred for the object in a given hour on a given day (Occurrences View shown below).  The number in each cell represents the number of occurrences in that hour span.

Exporting Data (Lesson 4-5)


Use the Filter button to filter by Shift, Shift Label, Classification, Bottleneck, and CycleTIme Overcycle.

After the filters are set, use the Yellow Export to Excel button to download a copy to your download folder.
