In an industry segment where automation, connectivity and traceability is becoming increasingly common, the next challenge is to retrieve insights and predictions from the data collected.
This time is coming in a high speed and bringing the truly Industry 4.0-oriented approach that enables further improvements in efficiency, quality and accountability:
As long as you have sensors, data can be transmitted and stored. The Internet of Things explosion is a relevant testament to that. In Industry 4.0, however, we move beyond simply collecting data for the sake of storing it for the future. Collecting data is easy – analysing and utilizing the data in a proactive way is more complex.
Collecting, analyzing and making data driven decisions is a natural part of our daily work with clients. We are in the business of data collection and utilization, and can help our customers to analyse and visualize the data – from all screws, tools, operators, work stations and in the end, all assembled products.
This enables making decisions based on facts rather than assumptions, and provides tools for implementing data driven process improvement in order to avoid problems such as floating or missing screws, missing components or other assembly issues.
The automotive electronics industry demands a more proactive approach, driving improvement and further pushing the boundaries. The next challenge is to develop systems and interfaces that can integrate all the different kinds of processes in one place, where all the data sources are merged.
