Where To Start When You Don't Know How To Begin With Data
Many Manufacturers are looking to data to help increase efficiency and meet the new demand. But in the fog of big data it's not always clear what data points you need to start with.
Fortunately the answer to getting started with machine data collection is SIMPLICITY!
Most agree with Jim Carr and Jason Zenger, 'If you're not making chips you're not making money'. We encourage manufactures to start collecting simple spindle utilization data. It's easy to collect, easy to discuss, and nets the biggest gains to production performance. Knowing when your spindles are making chips in real-time becomes the common denominator in all other data points you are likely to collect in the future.
