Manufacturers are constantly challenged to increase productivity and find additional capacity. Yet hiring workers—and finding them—or simply adding costly equipment isn’t the smartest means to “more.” Success instead requires reliable insights into operations and knowledgeable support to turn insights into actionable change.
Shop Floor Optics harnesses the industrial internet of things (IIoT) to monitor the shop floor for complete visibility into profit leakage, hidden capacity, and potential productivity gains.
Affordable and hassle-free, the easy-to implement solution connects in minutes to machines to illuminate and record all key performance variables including quality, labor, and availability. Desktop, tablet and mobile-ready, gain anywhere, anytime access to shop floor data to make instant productivity decisions.
