With information instantly in your hands, you can anticipate and solve production problems before they happen.
- Improve efficiency
- Reduce waste
- Improve quality
- Increase uptime
Benefits to Manufacturers
Automatically capture data from machines and sensors on the shop floor. Powerful visual data empowers your employees, fostering openness, accountability, and responsiveness. Effective real-time information can help your company prevent issues before they escalate, improving response times and enhancing collaboration from the shop floor to the top floor.
Find out in real-time when a machine is not running efficiently so you can make quick adjustments and improvements. Use collected and tagged performance data to implement continuous improvement programs, helping your business run efficiently with maximum up-time.
Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Statistical Quality Control (SQC) use real-time actionable data to help you respond to production conditions, avoiding any potential errors that could lead to defective parts. Enable consistent results without consistent oversight and easily conform to your customer’s quality standards.
