A company in the machining industry had 15 CNC machines of different ages, different brands and reported various features. In addition to the CNCs, it had 22 workstations for cutting, assembly, polishing, painting and other tasks. With the information received from the CNCs and the field, the plant manager was unable to evaluate productivity in real time to adjust production. A major customer had also requested several real-time data from the plant manager for logistical purposes.
We equipped all production trolleys with positioning tags and integrated the data from our system into their ERP. In addition, with our customized connectivity services, we interconnected their CNC machines to a central system to find values that were similar and consistent. We also prepared these machines to act according to the commands of the central system. The plant operations manager can now make quicker decisions and coordinate operations with customers and suppliers. These enhancements greatly benefited the company.
