This paper presents a new technique to monitor a production plant by observing the characteristics of component movements in the plant. Most modern monitoring systems rely on various sensory devices to capture production information but the proposed methodology only requires simple counters in association with a mathematical model. In the proposed technique, the plant will be segmented into Regions Of Interest (ROIs) and the blocking in a plant can be observed by watching on each ROI. More importantly, the algorithm to deploy counters subjected to a defined maximum response time has also been worked out for the system design purpose.
