Next-Gen Production Monitoring in Real Time
We know manufacturers are busy. When we designed the Datanomix platform, we knew you didn’t want to add more work for your operators – you just need answers. With Datanomix, it’s fast and easy to get the real-time production intelligence you need for day-to-day operations, as well as the historical analysis required for continuous improvement – all with no operator input!
Automatically Grab Machine Data
Getting real-time data from your CNC machines is easier—and quicker—than you think. Simply connect to the Ethernet port—wired or wireless—for CNC controllers on machines built since 2002. Legacy machines can also be retrofitted with IoT sensors to provide valuable insights. Datanomix automatically collects and analyzes the data in real time
Benchmark Jobs in Real Time
Datanomix automatically establishes a benchmark of good production using only the data from your machines. The benchmark understands typical cycle times, utilizations, and throughput for each job you run, and holds you to that standard of performance with a simple scoring system (from A+ to C-), making it easy for people and resources to flow to the jobs that need attention in real time.
Broadcast Production Performance
Data and insights are only useful if everyone is on the same page, rallying the entire factory around performance and productivity. With Datanomix TV Mode, you can display real-time performance scores on smart TVs in every manufacturing cell. This lets you address performance challenges as they happen. When everyone is on the same page at the same time, good things happen.
Start Your Morning with Answers
Operations managers typically spend 60 – 90 minutes each morning gathering information on what happened the previous day for their morning production meeting. So we created the Coffee Cup Report, an executive summary of the previous day’s production delivered to your email inbox every morning at 6AM. Prepare for the day ahead with actual insights on what happened yesterday—what went well, what didn’t go well, and where the team should focus today.
Plan Operations with Data
Datanomix helps you understand the raw capacity and utilization of your factory, or you can drill into job specific details such as when an order will really be completed based on actual performance. Real-time data is great for real-time 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.
Take the Guesswork Out of Job Costing
Accurate pricing can be notoriously difficult, causing issues with profitability, or reducing the competitiveness of your quotes by adding too much of a “fudge factor.” The Datanomix Quote Calibration Report gives you instant access to true 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 by understanding how long it really takes to reliably produce specific parts

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.”

Production Monitoring FAQ’s
Since our software creates benchmarks for every job you run around cycle time, parts/hr, and utilization, it creates an expectation of performance for how many parts you should be making when the job is running. It automatically takes into account common scenarios such as multiple jobs in a shift, rotating operations, jobs that end partway through a shift, etc.
The software is then scoring you in real-time based on what % of that expected performance you have achieved using the “classic” grade school method of scoring. So if you are achieving at >= 98% of expected performance, that’s an A+, >= 93% is an A, >= 90% is an A-, and so on.
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. If you are looking for deeper insights from your ERP system, you should consider our Digital Gemba Board 🙂
