Manufacturing data is the foundation to achieve ROI from IIoT and continuous improvement programs.
A lot of companies have machine data gaps that create significant lag times to access, analyze, and act on core operations performance and business processes. Without full access to data from manufacturing equipment, shop floor operators and management teams can’t determine where they can impact on quality, scrap, and downtime.
However, getting data isn’t as simple as plugging an Ethernet cable into the machine. Machine connectivity is defined by the type of connection that is supported by the machine builder. If your organization is missing data from even a few machines, it’s probably not getting full ROI from the manufacturing operations management (MOM) or ERP systems.

The Toward Zero Machine Connectivity Audit is a proven methodology to document each asset’s “connectability,” (e.g., machine connectivity). It’s a critical foundational backbone for shop floor and manufacturing system projects and implementation so your team can create a dependable, achievable, and realistic project plan that includes every asset that is in-scope. Your machine connectivity expert will work with you to:
More ROI from your manufacturing execution system
MOM/MES makes it possible to measure performance, which is core to a CI program.
More accurate OEE
The right OEE solution helps your team find root causes and solve problems.
Data and analytics are the backbone of effective CI and the ability to drive overall corporate performance.
