Production Machining Interviews MachineMetrics on Industry 4.0 and Manufacturing Analytics

Graham Immerman
December 06, 2017

Last Month, the editors at Production Machining reached out to MachineMetrics to gleam insights into our revolutionary platform, the hype surrounding Industry 4.0, and how to help companies build a roadmap to digital manufacturing transformation. Our Marketing Director Graham Immerman was there to answer questions from PM's Associate Editor Bart Bishop and to speak directly about what makes MachineMetrics such a unique solution and how we're driving manufacturing efficiency by more than 20% on average for our customers. 

Here's a quick glimpse into the article:

"Machine monitoring is the first step that companies can take into Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). To become a data-driven manufacturer, a shop first needs the data. Manually tracking data can create a number of problems: It’s inefficient to track, it can be inaccurate, and it’s reactive. Real-time data, on the other hand, allows companies to make fast, proactive decisions to bring efficiency to their processes.

While a large percentage of shops have plans to or are already using machine monitoring systems, MachineMetrics claims to have identified a gap in the manufacturing process that goes beyond what most other monitoring companies look to solve. “There was a lack of real-time production visibility and a lack of communication between machine operators and their managers,” says Graham Immerman, MachineMetrics’ director of marketing. “Our system solves this problem by providing visualizations of real-time manufacturing production data, instant notifications and historical analytics, allowing factory workers to make faster, smarter, more confident decisions based on real-time data.”
