Optimize Your Assets with MachineMetrics

November 9, 2018 6:12 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

The age-old question that continues to permeate from manufacturing facilities everywhere is: “How do we optimize our assets?”

It’s a question that will never stop being asked; from the boardroom to the shop floor. Chances are, you’ve asked it yourself… The investments that exist in your shop have come at no small expense to the overall operating budget of the company, so why not explore better ways to achieve optimized technology performance. Gone are the days when the production of a facility rested solely on the shoulders of the human resources employed under the company’s roof. Long gone.

We’re in the age of Industry 4.0: The age of automation.

In June of 2016 Forbes Magazine proclaimed –

For a factory or system to be considered Industry 4.0, it must include:

  • Interoperability — machines, devices, sensors and people that connect and communicate with one another.
  • Information transparency — the systems create a virtual copy of the physical world through sensor data in order to contextualize information.
  • Technical assistance — both the ability of the systems to support humans in making decisions and solving problems and the ability to assist humans with tasks that are too difficult or unsafe for humans.
  • Decentralized decision-making — the ability of cyber-physical systems to make simple decisions on their own and become as autonomous as possible.

And that is indeed the long and short of it as we sit here, nearing the end of 2018. Interoperability, technical optimization, and the fundamentals of IoT (Internet of Things) communicating in unison to create a technologically led workforce through the ides of manufacturing are at an all-time high, and, it’s only going to grow from here.

So, how are you taking control of your floor? How are managing all the moving pieces and parts that make up your operative manufacturing practices?
