Automation is about a lot more than just advancing technology—it’s about helping companies achieve operational goals that align with their business strategies. Keep reading for more information about how implementing automation can boost productivity and business growth.
Decisions Based on Data
Once you’ve reviewed your business’s strategies, you need to find the data to support these goals. Collecting, connecting, and taking advantage of data helps you make informed and proactive decisions.
But, with so much data, it can be hard to know how to proceed. Utilizing all of that data is possible, though, with superior sensing automation products that improve efficiency, reduce costs, and increase revenue—giving you competitive advantages.
The goal here is to find automation projects that improve your operations and support business growth. With sensors on your machines, you can collect, integrate, and move data to the appropriate place to meet operational goals.
Using Data to Improve Processes
There are so many companies that don’t have access to the information they need to improve their production lines. Some plant managers don’t know whether or not machines are running, what temperatures their ovens are at, or even how many parts were made on a given day. Why? They often don’t know where to look for that data, or don’t have the technology to collect the data or analyze it properly.
This is where automation changes the game.
Without a clear and comprehensive view of how your plant is running, it’s impossible to make informed decisions in order to adapt to the manufacturing industry’s changing needs. Automation software can begin collecting data for you, it can take data from all programmable logic controllers and sensors to move it where you need it, or it can work to pull the data you need from all sensors and PLCs installed in your plant—regardless of the company name on the hardware. Some automation softwares can also collect data without having to go through the PLC, like Revere’s ROVER 3.
Flexibility plays such an important role in production, especially as customers demand more customized options and faster turnaround times. With data collection and analysis, adaptation to these changing demands of traditional manufacturing has never been more accessible.
Implementing automation into your facility comes with endless benefits—reduced downtime, and reduced manufacturing costs for starters. You need a partner who understands your business. For over 40 years, Revere’s industrial automation systems have allowed us to form relationships that help water, energy, and manufacturing customers by safely delivering turnkey or standalone solutions.
