Franz Eduard Gruber, CEO FORCAM GmbHBenefits for Users
From machine operators - to plant managers – to top management - every user is able to access the right information to make meaningful decisions. The system is fully adaptable to individual needs and roles. System templates for different user groups make administration clear and simple.
Data collected from the machines and production lines can be leveraged for exact analysis of planned and actual progress. Specific Key Performance Indicators (KPI) consolidate and transform Big Data to Smart Data and help identify areas for improvement without having to pour over long data spreadsheets.
A central server or cloud solution ensures that data is distributed in real time to where it is needed.
