FORCAM FORCE offers with the Bridge API a bridge to which third party systems can be connected (through the open interfaces). The competitors don’t do that, many of them are “only” MES providers.
To your question number 1: The open API at FORCAM is like a bridge for third party systems. Thus it is possible to connect different third party systems.
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a measure that helps identify, monitor and improve the productivity, profitability and overall effectiveness of production equipment (machines, manufacturing cells, assembly lines, etc.) in the context of the manufacturing process. It is therefore used in the manufacturing sector (automotive, etc.).
OEE considers the most common and important sources of productivity loss in manufacturing. The OEE value is made up of the following three factors:
FORCAM FORCE can be integrated with an ERP adapter (e.g. for SAP) with the ERP system.
OEE is a metric used to calculate and score all the elements of machine effectiveness in the manufacturing process. It combines availability, utilization, production, and quality metrics into the score. It is supposed to summarize the efficiency of a machine, cell, or production line during the manufacturing process.
OPE stands for Overall Production Effectiveness. The biggest difference between OPE and OEE is that OPE includes disconnected elements that may not be included in OEE calculations. This means that it includes activities like selective procedures and manual processes that don’t include the machines themselves or may not apply to every product in a production run.

FORCAM FORCE supports for example SAP as an ERP system.
