How Does Data fit in the Industrial World?
It’s no secret that big data is driving the growth of tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Amazon. From anticipating customer preferences to cutting shipping times, digital data collection has given these businesses the key advantages they need to achieve rapid growth.
Big data is on the mind of so many of our industrial customers. For many, ditching paper records and coherently organizing data seems like an impossible task. Luckily, the first part, ditching paper records, is easy. Recent advances in technology have made digital data collection easier, more intuitive, and more cost-effective than ever before. The second part, using the collected data, can be more tedious, but it is well worth the effort. Automated data collection software like Collect+ creates a real-time bird’s eye view of material along each step of the production process. This level of material traceability gives you the power to make continual improvements at your faculty by pinpointing process deficiencies as they happen. In fact, implementing data collection can increase a facility’s yields by up to 10%.
