Getting Started With MTConnect - Shop Floor Monitoring, What's In It For You?

The MTConnect Institute is pleased to announce the availability of a new document entitled "Getting Started With MTConnect - Shop Floor Monitoring, What's In It For?"  The first and most obvious application for MTConnect is monitoring your shop floor. This white paper is written for the shop owner, plant manager or CEO, and focuses on the business-related features and benefits of MTConnect.  This guide demonstrates the tangible benefits of monitoring a manufacturing plant, and of using the open and royalty-free standard MTConnect as the way to get data and information off the shop floor.

There is essentially no limit to how companies can benefit from the data obtained via MTConnect from the shop floor. This information can be used to improve operations, track production, and justify decisions that affect plant operations. Some of the more common uses for shop floor data and topics discussed in this white paper include Production Dashboard; Monitor Alerts; Equipment Availability and Usage; Overall Equipment Effectiveness; Production Reporting/Tracking; Energy Conservation; Mobile: Anywhere, Anytime Access to Plant Floor Information; Quality and Statistical Process Control; Data Mining, Genealogy; and Security.
