A discrete manufacturer faces a host of unseen challenges: asset productivity, lost capacity and profit leakage. Your company’s production key performance indicators (KPIs) can reveal these challenges, yet it’s difficult to target exactly where losses and leakages are occurring. But by connecting machines to the cloud, plant managers can use industrial internet of things (IIOT) software to quickly assess current performance and investigate historical trends.
Gone are the days where a plant’s output is quantified at the end of a shift and reported to management through a series of lagging reports. MachineMetrics is a tool that can be added to a larger toolset, like the one offered by Wipfli. Wipfli combines MachineMetrics with other consultative services that together give your management team the ability to set part goals and equipment usage targets and then react to real-time measurements. Being able to direct labor, adjust work order routing and identify underperforming work cells in quicker increments can make all the difference in meeting customer expectations.
