Real-time Machine Monitoring and Analytics

Use Case

Accurate and reliable downtime monitoring in real time

Manufacturing plant floors today often utilize a host of software systems and machines. The importance of monitoring production lines and gathering intelligent data from these assets is imperative, but many are using outdated, home-grown, ineffective software. Manufacturers need a way to transform and optimize their operations to remain relevant and competitive.

New solutions that can combine different data sources and real-time calculations of KPIs and equipment performance are essential to improve plant performance, reduce production costs, and improve decision making.
