Here’s The Manufacturing Data You Absolutely Don’t Need!
You don’t need all that manufacturing data.
To some, collecting any kind of machine data from the manufacturing floor can seem complex. I hear actually this a lot. “All data collection technologies have all these features and we are too small or our processes are too simple”. This is a really common outlook.
Other people tell me that these same kinds of data collection technologies and methods are too simple. “We need SPC (statistical process control), ERP integration, MES functionality, etc.” .. the list goes on.
So, which is it? Are some manufacturers just way behind; while others are way ahead of everyone else – technology developers included?
