What is Manufacturing Intelligence?
Your company makes sneakers from plants across the globe. As an executive, you have a responsibility to make sure that the products you are manufacturing are of sound quality and conform to company standards. Anything less is intolerable.
Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) is a term used to describe the aggregation and analysis of process data from multiple production sources. MI streams real-time production statistics directly into a single hub and gives you the resources needed to make strategic decisions—when you need to make them. It is the tool you need, for example, to rest assured that the sneakers coming off of your assembly line in Mexico are exactly the same specifications as the ones in Vietnam.
Sound manufacturing intelligence, therefore, prevents product noncompliance or even dangerous recalls and devastating financial loss. With the ability to identify process trends, you can avoid producing bad product and stop problems before they happen.
For example, in addition to granting access to real-time monitoring and analysis, the Proficient Statistical Process Control (SPC) hub by InfinityQS utilizes a central engine to deliver data collection, workflow management, and advanced reporting. Not only will you be able to see the quality of the products your company is making, but you will be able to statistically gauge the efficiency of your workers. This will allow you to strategically re-organize and allocate plant-floor teams.
Manufacturing Intelligence can be deployed either directly to your organization’s main server, or remotely via the cloud. InfinityQS ProFicient on Demand system is made for mobile devices so that sneaker production processes in Vietnam can be observed from wherever you may be on the planet. As long as you have access to the Internet, you will be in complete command of the products and employees you are managing.
