Sage Clarity’s Digital Accelerator Apps Enable Real-time Production Monitoring
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has helped bring manufacturing into the 21st century by enabling the collection and analysis of vast amounts of data directly from machines on the factory floor. However, effectively utilizing this data is vital to making informed decisions and driving continuous improvement.
Sage Clarity’s Digital Accelerator Apps ensure the accuracy of the data collected and feed real-time production metrics and analytics back to managers and engineers. This stream of accurate data empowers them to react to changes in production and make better decisions that keep the factory agile and responsive. Here are some of the tangible production monitoring benefits manufacturers enjoy when they rely on Sage Clarity’s solutions:
Improving Cycle Times and Overall Equipment Effectiveness
In the competitive manufacturing world, it’s essential to constantly strive for improved efficiency and higher production levels. Sage Clarity’s software suite not only provides the tools for monitoring and scheduling but also actively aids in improving cycle times and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Using real-time data from machines and operators, critical areas for improvement can be identified and addressed, resulting in better uptime and cycle times. Ultimately, this leads to higher levels of productivity and more reliable manufacturing processes.
Increased Plant Productivity and Reliability
Optimizing production processes and resources isn’t just about increasing output; it’s also about ensuring that the products produced are of the highest quality. Sage Clarity focuses on providing the insights needed to improve reliability and quality across the entire manufacturing process. By monitoring key production metrics such as machine uptime, cycle times, scrap rates, and more, the system helps identify areas where improvements can be made. More effective processes, reduced waste, and fewer unplanned downtime periods result in better products and happier customers.
Optimizing Capital Expenditures and Financial Decision Making
Sage Clarity’s Digital Accelerator Suite of Apps optimize capital expenditures by providing real-time production metrics that allow for better decision-making and improving key performance indicators (KPIs) such as OEE, reliability, and cycle times. By investing in these technologies, manufacturers can make significant strides in their efforts to improve profitability and remain competitive in a continuously evolving market.
The ability to make data-driven decisions is essential for success in today’s manufacturing environment. Sage Clarity’s MES Digital Accelerator Apps provide the tools and insights necessary to harness the power of real-time metrics, enabling manufacturing managers and engineers to optimize production processes and improve overall equipment effectiveness and plant productivity.
