Datanomix provides cloud-based, production intelligence software to manufacturers using CNC tools to produce discrete components for the medical equipment, aerospace, defense and automotive industries with its Fusion platform. Fusion is accessible from any device, giving access to critical insights in a few clicks, anytime and anywhere. Fusion is a hands-free, plug-and-play solution for shop floor productivity.
By establishing a data connection to machines communicating via industry-standard protocols like MTConnect or IO-Link, Fusion automatically tracks what actual production is by part and machine and sets a benchmark for expected performance. To measure performance against expected benchmarks, a simple letter grade scoring system is shown across all machines. In cases where output has not kept pace with the benchmark, the Fusion Factor would decline, informing workers that expected results could be in jeopardy.
“Our Fusion platform delivers productivity wins for our customers using a real-time production scoring technology we call Fusion Factor,” said John Joseph, CEO of Datanomix. “By seeing exactly what is happening on the factory floor, our customers experience 20-30% increases in output by job, shorter time to problem resolution and a direct correlation between part performance and business impact. We give the answers that matter, when they matter and are excited to now give access to the Azure community.”
By seeing the entire factory floor and providing job-specific production intelligence in real-time, there is no more waiting until the end of the day to see where opportunities for improvement exist. In TV Mode, displays mounted on the shop floor rotate through the performance metrics of every connected machine, identifying which machines need assistance and why.
“TV Mode has created a rallying point that didn’t exist on the shop floor previously. Fusion brings people together to troubleshoot today’s production challenges as they are happening. The collaboration and camaraderie is a great boost not only to productivity, but also morale,” says Joseph.
Continuous improvement leaders can review instant reports offered by Fusion that answer common process improvement questions ranging from overall capacity utilization and job performance trends to Pareto charts and cell/shift breakdowns. A powerful costing tool called Quote Calibration uses all of the job intelligence Fusion collects to help business leaders determine the actual profit and loss of each part, turning job costing from a blind spot to a competitive advantage.
