Collecting downtime and performance data in a spreadsheet has long been the norm for most manufacturers, but manual data collection has shown to be inaccurate, fraught with risk and ineffective for management decision making. There is now however, a better way to get a handle on how you are actually performing on the production floor. These days, progressive manufacturing companies have moved on from archaic spreadsheets in favour of using automated data collection directly from their production equipment, giving them access to accurate, real-time performance information, OEE analysis and control of their processes like never before.
