You have a modern yogurt plant with thousands of sensors and control points, in fact, rivaling any modern chemical facility or refinery. Or you’ve upgraded your bakery, and there are new sensor points everywhere, and from these devices, you’re collecting data you never had before. Now, what are you going to do with all the data you’re collecting? How do you make sense of it?
Over the years, there have been many software solutions developed to tackle this problem. Some approach it from the quality (SPC/SQC) level; some approach it from the shop floor HMI/data historian/MES layer, and some from the ERP level. Then, too, OEE software promises to find problems in your lines. Problem is, in many cases, these systems each provide a partial view into the goings-on in your facility. What if you could analyze all the data from all sources and find solutions to your production problems, quality and waste issues, OEE and more?
