In the first of this two-parter, we discussed how incorporating process signature analysis into every phase of an integrator’s build can help reduce risk and keep the project on time and on budget. In this post, we talk about how bundling this same quality assurance technology into a build can also bring more business to an integrator’s door.
Integrators working with manufacturers face the same recurring challenge – developing and delivering a system that meets spec, on time and on budget. But nine times of 10, when they put equipment on the customer’s floor, they’re already behind schedule, overbudget, or both.
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.
