What gets measured gets done.
In the recently released AUTOMATION WORKFORCE PRODUCTIVITY report from IMEC, the Upjohn Institute, and partners, just under half the manufacturers surveyed said they were in the process of implementing, or had fully implemented, sensors to gather data on the production floor.
Although a fairly simple technology to implement, without a plan for how to use it, it’s just fun technology.
This webinar will show you how to plan out the best places to start with data gathering sensors. We will help you understand how to use your strategic plan to drive you to correct placement of the sensors as well as how to use the data to make smart investments and improvement initiatives, especially related to equipment maintenance and efficiency.
