On many production lines, the use of machine vision images is for basic pass/fail determination during the process cycle. Related data collection doesn’t often extend past camera performance. Pass/fail results, after serving their immediate purpose, are often discarded. If they are kept, they are commonly left on local PCs and servers, in silos across the plant that lack digital connectivity.

So, your plant collects data—but how are you using that data? Is your data empowering individuals on the plant floor to take quick, decisive action? Is your data supporting timely and informed decision-making in the corner office?

With reams of manufacturing process data being generated every day from each part and assembly on the production line, smart manufacturers are becoming wise to the power their data holds. Through meaningful data collection and analysis, smart manufacturers are experiencing profound gains in overall yield, product quality and process optimization.

Reduced production costs and improved quality isn’t an oxymoron … really.

It’s only to be expected that engineering and process staff might have a rocky relationship with the big promise of Industry 4.0. Achieving the goal of the connected factory where every piece of equipment digitally connects with another and every unit in production is traceable can seem daunting.

Which it is, if you still rely on the wrong tools to do the job.
