A SMART FACTORY
SCALABLE, AFFORDABLE, SMART
SmartEYE™ is an IIoT-based factory 4.0 Paas (Platform as a Service) that provides a 360-degree view of operations including machines, personnel, processes and energy use. SmartEYE™ can be deployed for one or more machines, manufacturing lines, cells or the entire plant. In other words, it can be scaled up or down to match client requirements and budget.
With SmartEYE™, you get data and analytics on-the-edge, so you can monitor up to several hundred data points in real-time, allowing you to make accurate and precise decisions that facilitate OPEX reduction, product improvement and revenue growth. You tell us what problem you are trying to solve, what data you need to solve it and we will create a custom SmartEYE™ solution. We even have a no-upfront fee subscription contract option.
- Installed and online in a matter of weeks
- No changes to your equipment
- Customized to fit any budget
- No interruptions to production
How well do you know your factory?
- When is the best time to perform maintenance on my equipment?
- How can I ensure consistent product output? How can I pinpoint exactly what went wrong in the process when the output isn’t as expected?
- Which tasks are better handled by a single employee, and which tasks are better handled by multiple employees?
- How do I track energy efficiency without reducing productivity, output and growth?
- How can I gauge employee efficiency, so I can give employees more flexibility and still manage costs?
- What are the consequences to my bottom line if certain machines break down, or we experience personnel shortages?
Figuring all of this out requires a lot of data points, time and effort
Plus, things keep changing all the time! I’d need to monitor every inch of my factory, every second of the day. But I don’t have the staff, and I am just one person.
Even if I somehow had the data, I would need it interpreted and compared against KPIs and industry-wide best practices. It would be great to run ‘what if’ scenarios if I tweak operations relating to equipment, process, time and/or personnel.
