With its features FACTORYMINER acts as a link between management level applications (ERP, PPS) and the shop floor. Data can either be gathered manually (Production Data Collection) or automatically (Machine Data Acquisition). Due to its flexible interfaces FACTORYMINER is able to bidirectionally communicate with existing systems (e.g. ERP, PPS). It also can be connected with almost any machine. A wide range of reports and analysis as well as the current job progress and the precise tracking of all production steps is available to you anytime and anywhere—and all that absolutely device independent and in real time.
