Integrating Process Weighing Data
White Paper May 04, 2011
Efficient transfer of weighing process data to higher level MES or ERP systems can help make manufacturing processes more transparent. Increased transparency can improve asset use, reduce operating costs, and make complying with certification standards or industrial regulations easier.
Identifying and implementing the most effective system for data collection and integration can be challenging, however, especially in a legacy manufacturing operation.
This paper explores weighing process integration challenges and provides points to consider when defining operating boundaries and data objectives. Weighing and communication solutions are more likely to meet objectives and produce measurable ROI when these points are taken into account.
