Automated Production Intelligence™
Next-Gen Production Monitoring
Chances are your production monitoring system has let you down, and we believe you should expect more! That is why we took the time to learn from manufacturers and use that input to build a software system designed specifically for the way you work.
Datanomix is the LEADER in Automated Production Intelligence™. We understand your factory and jobs exactly as you do. Production is described in simple terms anyone can understand. Insights take seconds to evaluate, not hours. And most importantly, No Operator Input™ required—just the right information to the right people at the right time.
Next-Gen Production Monitoring
The time has come to expect more from your monitoring system. Imagine a system that supports how you work, delivering insights into job performance in real time and offering deep insights into overall factory trends over time—all without requiring your operators to stop what they’re doing and enter reason codes into a tablet. Well, imagine no more and get the industry’s only next-generation production monitoring!
This is Automated Production Intelligence™, and it’s available only from Datonomix. The Datanomix platform automatically turns raw machine data into real-time production intelligence, visualizing insights in a number of out-of-the-box reports and dashboards—all while working with your existing workflows and absolutely No Operator Input™.
Benchmarks & Real-Time Job Scoring
With Datanomix, you only need to run a few parts on the machine to automatically establish a benchmark for what good production looks like for every job you run. Datanomix analyzes and visualizes Takt parts, cycle times, utilization, and throughput for each job you run and compares the current performance to the benchmark using a simple scoring system that grades real-time output from A+ to C-. Everyone on the team knows exactly where to focus their efforts.
Look Up for Production Performance
Data and insights are only helpful if everyone is on the same page, rallying the entire factory around performance and productivity. Datanomix TV Mode unifies and synchronizes your team by displaying live production KPIs broadcast on smart TVs around your factory. This lets your team “look up” to discuss and address performance challenges. Your best people naturally flow to the jobs that need them the most, and communication thrives.
Start Your Morning with Answers
Operations managers tell us they spend 60 to 90 minutes every morning gathering information on what happened the previous day for the morning production meeting. So we created the Coffee Cup Report, an executive summary of yesterday’s production that is emailed to your team every morning. Prepare for the day with insights on what happened yesterday—what went well, what didn’t go well—so you know exactly where you should focus today.
Datanomix helps you understand the raw capacity and utilization of your factory or job-specific details, such as when an order will be completed based on actual performance. Real-time data is excellent for live operations, but long-term improvements require understanding trends over time. Datanomix collects, stores, and analyzes all of the data, so you understand equipment utilization, in-job performance, and shift statistics to see which teams are on target.
Automated Downtime InsightsTM
Instead of interrupting workflows, Datanomix automatically categorizes the reasons for expected and unexpected downtime during live production, providing a clear target for which processes to improve and which steps in those processes offer the greatest opportunities for consistency and margin improvement. Get a clear picture of the sources of variance within critical processes in real-time and over time—no more reason codes!
Take the Guesswork Out of Job Quoting
Accurate quoting can be notoriously tricky, causing profitability issues or reducing your quotes’ competitiveness by adding too much “fudge factor.” The Datanomix Quote Calibration report gives you instant access to proper job performance so you can reconcile actual costs against your estimates to find the best opportunities for margin and optimization. Take the guesswork out of your quotes and know how long it takes to produce specific parts reliably.
A Workflow for Continuous Improvement
The Datanomix Continuous Improvement Hub (CI Hub) is a reporting workflow designed to give business leaders and continuous improvement personnel insights into overall factory performance and top improvement opportunities. The CI Hub consolidates key performance indicators for factory health into a single dashboard that allows you to quickly track and validate improvements and identify risks and opportunities to meet factory business goals.
The Power of Datanomix Wherever You Go
With the Datanomix mobile app for iOS and Android devices, customers can see the status of their Datanomix-connected machines to track job performance in real time on a smartphone or tablet. Customers can also pull up their most important reports, including the After Action, Coffee Cup, and Quote Calibration reports.
Alarms, Scheduling, and More!
Right out of the box, Datanomix delivers the reports and visualizations you need to improve across all aspects of your factory’s operations. An Alarms Pareto report shows you the most common alarm codes by machine and time of day, and our Scheduling dashboard shows you the history for each job on each machine and allows you to plan out your schedule based on past results. And Datanomix is always listening to customer feedback to improve the platform.
Get Up-and-Running Quickly
With Datanomix, it’s never been faster—or easier—to get started with real-time production insights for your factory. We built the Datanomix Onboarding Dashboard to accelerate the installation and onboarding of the Datanomix platform at your facility. The dashboard is a communication hub between your team and Datanomix, with an easy-to-follow and transparent workflow that ensures a smooth and efficient onboarding experience.

Start Your Morning with the Coffee Cup Report
“In 15 minutes each day, the Coffee Cup Report gives me a complete picture of yesterday’s results without having to walk the floor or counting parts. It’s automatic, with no disruption to operators, and I have the answers I need to run the business.”—Jesse Bunnell, Plant Operations Manager, Eptam Precision
Production Monitoring FAQ’s
By running just a few parts, Datanomix creates performance benchmarks for every job you run. Benchmarks are based on your best performance for every part and evolve over time, providing a stretch goal for future runs of that part. The benchmarks are also used to create a production score—from A plus to C minus—for every job.
Production scores—or Fusion Factor—for every job are displayed on smart TVs on the shop floor. This easy-to-understand score shows your entire team—in real time—which jobs are on track and which jobs need attention. Different shifts know how they are performing in relation to your benchmarks and to other shifts, giving everyone an incentive to achieve.
This is one of the things that makes us unique—we don’t require operator input for anything. Our software automatically figures out benchmarks for cycle time, parts/hr and utilization just by doing statistical analysis on the data coming from your machines.
We typically just need WiFi network information and can take it from there. We plug a device into your CNC machines which sits on the WiFi network and is collecting real-time data.
Our pricing is per machine per year, not per user. You can have as many user accounts as you’d like.
It certainly can, although the vast majority of our customers choose to run us as a standalone system because of the value of our information and the quality of our user interface.
A ProShop ERP integration is now available inside the Datanomix platform. By enabling this integration, Datanomix automatically matches part numbers in the machine code to those from the ProShop ERP system and extracts target takt times. These targets are integrated into the Datanomix Quote Calibration Report to quickly identify opportunities for margin improvement by comparing the ProShop target takt times to Datanomix actuals and benchmarks. Pre-packaged filters in the report show exactly which jobs to work on —Biggest Winners, Biggest Losers, Losers that Could Be Winners, and Winners with Upside— are a Continuous Improvement leader’s dream.
