MachineMetrics Automates Collection of Real-Time Machine Data
EMO 2019: MachineMetrics is an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform designed specifically for discrete manufacturing.
MachineMetrics is an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform designed specifically for discrete manufacturing. By combining IIoT data analytics with the value creation of a packaged, cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS), MachineMetrics automates the collection and transformation of real-time machine data that is augmented with data from people, devices and systems to provide diagnostic and predictive analytics.
Packaged SaaS services are said to generate immediate ROI for discrete manufacturers. These services include real-time dashboards, recommendation engines that suggest ways to improve performance, warning notifications and predictive maintenance analytics to reduce outages. The platform also enables users to add their own IP both at the edge and cloud layers through “microservices,” analytics technology, and integrations with other systems.
This shop’s successful entry into machine monitoring reveals important points about what to do and what to expect.
A database guru combined off-the-shelf technology with an elaborate proprietary shop management software to drive efficiency throughout all areas of a machine shop.
A panel discussion at the recent Top Shops Conference focused on various points of view regarding the value of connecting machine tools to a network for monitoring performance and recording results. Because machine monitoring helps a shop make better decisions about manufacturing processes, it is a good example of data-driven manufacturing in action.
