Currently, manufacturing leaders have little accurate data on the efficiency of their operations, leading them to make decisions based on limited, delayed, and biased information. With market competition increasing, supply chain constraints, and a massive labor shortage, executives are searching for solutions to extract insights from the multiple plants they manage.
The hodge-podge of manual and semi-automated data collection and management systems in place, such as MES and ERP, provide limited capabilities for capturing plant-level data and making the information actionable at both the shop floor and enterprise level.
By scaling machine connectivity across multiple plants, enterprise leaders can gain a comprehensive view of their operations, which can help them identify areas for improvement, optimize processes, and allocate resources accordingly.
However, scaling machine connectivity across the enterprise has historically been a major challenge. With MachineMetrics, it can be accomplished with less capital, at a rapid speed, and with limited in-house technical resources. With a strong data infrastructure rooted in OT asset connectivity, enterprises can better collect, manage, and analyze the data they need to make informed decisions and drive operational improvements.
