The Need for Real-time Production Tracking on the Shop Floor

The Need for Real-time Production Tracking on the Shop Floor.

Optimizing manufacturing operations relies on understanding what is happening on the shop floor. But limited visibility into performance data often obscures emerging production issues. Modern manufacturing execution systems (MES) enable real-time production tracking, monitoring, and analytics to give floor teams greater visibility.


The Need for Live Monitoring

In theory, floor operators should have ready access to data needed to enhance performance, quality, and throughput. But in reality, fragmented systems, manual data collection, and delayed reporting create blindspots on the shop floor.

Without real-time production tracking on the shop floor, it is common to encounter unexpected downtime, inefficient processes, variability, and quality fluctuations. A lot of these hindrances persist for extended periods and can significantly impact the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the operations. In fact, by the time issues are analyzed, the opportunity for timely corrections has passed. Floor teams need live monitoring and analytics.


The Power of Real-Time MES

A modern MES transforms shop floor visibility through integrated, real-time production performance monitoring. Converging previously siloed data sources into unified dashboards provides the real-time insights floor teams need.

With an MES software solution, automated IoT sensors are able to feed live OEE, cycle time, yield, and other critical KPI metrics directly from machines and processes. Issues can be rapidly identified and addressed before causing disruptions. Expert advisors provide recommended actions when monitored thresholds are breached. This enables floor operators to achieve new levels of speed, quality, and performance through data-driven decisions.
