Today we highlight the 3 Key Benefits of Machine Monitoring. Step 1 though is getting the machines cloud-connected, at which point you gain real-time visibility into your shop floor with ShiftWorx MES SaaS; all by simply opening a web browser on any device, anywhere!
Now that your machines are connected, what are the 3 Key Benefits of Machine Monitoring (or monitoring manual processes, and assembly workstations alike)?
Key Benefit #1 – Reduce Downtime
Every manufacturing plant wants to run their operations as lean and efficiently as possible and one of the biggest obstacles that stands in the way is downtime. Downtime consumes valuable resources that could have been used for productivity. When ShiftWorx™ machine monitoring system is integrated with your machines, managers and supervisors are notified as soon as the machine goes down. They can then investigate the issue, find out what the problem is and prevent it from happening again..
Key Benefit #2 – Empower Employees
At FreePoint, we believe in the importance of empowering and engaging employees with modern technology. Manufacturing processes need to be re-humanized and provide an environment for workers to play a bigger role in identifying productivity improvements using factual, real-time process information. Machine monitoring enables that. When our customers share their machine data with their employees, operators and shop floor supervisors alike start to feel engaged and gain a sense of accountability. When management invests in a machine monitoring system, it demonstrates to their workforce that they are committed to increasing productivity and continuous improvement.
Key Benefit #3 – Make Informed Decisions
The data received from your machines helps you to make more informed decisions on a daily basis. Here are just a few ways the information is used:
- More accurate quoting for jobs
- Better decision making on the purchase of more machines
- More informed decision making for hiring employees
- Useful information that can be used for training employees
