Robust robotic technology that is easily integrated with existing automation is tackling tough challenges across diverse industries. Equally important to the utilization of these innovative machines for dull, dirty and dangerous tasks is the ability to execute a progressive action plan that leverages smart technologies implemented on the shop floor. Quickly becoming an important piece of the automated factory, next-generation software platforms that monitor, accumulate and visually deliver operational data in real time for networked production environments are proving to be highly useful in managing manufacturing and supply chain complexity.

Optimizing Operations Through Data

With the ability to harness meaningful data for predictive and prescriptive analytics, factory automation monitoring systems that are extensible are giving manufacturers the power to customize operations to better fulfill company goals for tangible outcomes. To learn more about transforming factory data into usable information, listen to Yaskawa experts, Josh Leath and Matthew Hartshorn, as they address the topic of data harnessing and highlight:

  • The value of data collection

  • The devices (i.e., robots, scanners, welders, grippers, etc.) that can provide actionable data

  • The four types of analytics (descriptive, predictive, prescriptive and X analytics)

  • The guiding principles (monitoring, visualization and extensibility) for i3-Mechatronics

  • Tailoring data and responding to analytics to meet company goals and industry requirements

  • Supporting future “Artificial Intelligence” and machine learning enhancements
