Wireless Collection Of Measurement Data
In manufacturing, reacting to measurement data in a timely fashion is critical. A fast response to undesirable trends can prevent scrap or rework. The problem is, it can be slow and cumbersome to collect, deliver and analyze measurement data. Recent efforts to expedite this process have included shop-wide cable networks with bar code readers and other automated devices. The latest development along these lines is wireless data handling.
