Siemens Manage MyMachines Offers Entry-Level CNC Machine Monitoring
Siemens’ Manage MyMachines is a cloud-based platform as a service enabling full tracking of machine kinematics as well as production data.
Siemens’ Manage MyMachines, one of the MindApps within the Mindsphere concept, is a cloud-based platform as a service enabling full tracking of machine kinematics as well as production data. The platform is marketed by Siemens as an entry point to shop digitalization. Machine shops and production departments, in conjunction with their system integrators and other business partners, can benefit from the platform’s transparent display of all CNC equipment on the floor regardless of location, brand, function or usage.
Manage MyMachines provides access to critical machine tool information, from bearing temperature to production by shift or job, scaled based on user needs. Unexpected line downtimes and off-normal machine kinematic conditions can be quickly identified and rectified. Predictive maintenance can be programmed such that an upcoming failure can be anticipated, with alerts sent, for example, to a local distributor for delivery of needed components.
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.
Having fully interactive access to shopfloor control software enables supervisors at metal finishing and repair job shop to monitor shop activities and make better decisions on the spot.
