EMPOWER OPERATORS AND ELIMINATE DOWNTIME
As manufacturing grows more and more sophisticated, searching for the source of problems such as excessive or unpredictable lead times can be challenging – and as shops begin taking on a higher mix of low-volume jobs, it becomes even harder. On the subject of investigating mysteries, Sherlock Holmes advised, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” It’s also a great perspective for investigating mysterious downtime.
To obtain truly reliable, predictable processes and fully understand the reasons behind unexpected downtime, more shops are turning to machine monitoring technology that provides the real-time visibility required for quick decision-making and enhanced communication. By empowering operators with a frictionless, easy-to-use system for keeping track of their machines, automated reporting systems provide the context that eliminates all those impossibilities and finds the truth.
