Powering the Industry 4.0 Revolution
The Industry 4.0 Revolution refers to the transformation in productivity made possible by advanced digital connectivity. People, machines and processes can now interact with one another—with sensors and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) continuously collecting and analyzing data from multiple points in a facility in order to optimize decisions and trigger pre-emptive interventions.
The end result of all this data collection and analyses? Maximum equipment availability, performance, and product quality. These combine to help improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), a measure of the overall performance of a single piece of equipment or even of an entire factory. Ascom enterprise solutions help harvest the data needed to calculate and improve OEE. They can also funnel feedback to the MES, creating ‘virtuous circles’ to help your organization build knowledge bases of incidents and their resolutions.
