"It’s almost impossible to keep track of what’s happening in the production process using manual techniques. Simple bits of information really matter and they are the pillars behind some of your billion-dollar decisions — small data always plays a big role. Did you know that a machine data acquisition system can capture data from various operational systems? It is a robust platform that enables acquiring data from electronic systems, machines and manual fields. The acquired data will be presented on a customized dashboard so that the user can easily analyze and interpret the presented data. Interestingly, the data you can gather does not limit only to the operational aspect but also covers a wide scope — from machine health to quality control to staff productivity levels and environmental parameters — and allows you to monitor every single element of your operation."
Decision making has been made easy with a machine data system because it not only extracts data from various sources but also displays them on a customized dashboard for easy analysis.
Visual presentation of data
Improves process efficiency
The acquired data can be used to gain a deeper knowledge about the process, and thus you can easily identify the stumbling blocks in the process and invest in improving such areas to trigger-up the efficiency of the overall process.
Eliminates human errors
There could be errors and omissions when data is collected manually, which of course, is a cumbersome process. But if you are collecting data using a data acquisition system, there is no room for the inaccuracy of data.
Strengthens data security
You won’t realise the immense value of your data until it is at stake. By automating the process of capturing data, the human factor is no longer involved in the process and the security risks associated with this procedure can be eliminated.
Reduces monitoring cost
With a properly implemented data acquisition system, you do not need a dedicated staff to monitor and manually capture data. Therefore, it saves a significant proportion of the company’s overall cost.
