Most often you will find Flexware Innovation, Inc. and their FlexDog engineers in manufacturing environments across the nation assisting organizations to solve the most complex IT and engineering obstacles.
President and CEO Scott Whitlock explains via whiteboard how automation integration, software development and business intelligence can work together to help today’s manufacturers become more efficient, as well as monitor and analyze important manufacturing data in real-time.
Scott dives into the international ISA S95 model (originally Dr. Theodore Williams’ Purdue Reference Model) and showcases five levels of manufacturing systems hierarchy that tie to one another, from PLC (programmable logic controller) and sensors to manufacturing execution systems (MES) to enterprise resource planning (ERP).
For busy manufacturers, it’s all about the flow of information and ease of business from planning and operator execution to quality monitoring and measuring of performance and profitability. At the end of day your biggest question is simply, how am I running? Flexware can make the answer to that question just as simple to obtain.
Would you like to learn more about how Flexware’s automation integration, software development and business intelligence teams can help you have a better pulse on your factory floor’s inputs and outputs? Let’s book a lunch and learn at your facility. Our FlexDogs would love to come hear your pain points firsthand.
