Production Monitoring

Built for the next generation

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.

As 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.

Expect More From Your Production Monitoring

No Operator Input™ was born out of the pain and frustration of everyday shop leaders who had the courage to invest in production monitoring software but did not deserve to be punished by the shortcomings of prior-generation systems. We took the time to learn from manufacturers and use that input to build a software system with out-of-the-box workflows that align with how you already work.

Datanomix redefines what manufacturing leaders of today and tomorrow should expect from their production monitoring systems and delivers capabilities with no work required on your part to find the answers you seek. We simply connect to your CNC machines, and our software unveils production insights in real-time and long-term factory trends over time. You don’t need to assemble, export, crunch, or customize data—you simply click and review! 


Job-Specific 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. We analyze and visualize Takt parts, cycle times, utilization, and throughput for each job you run and compare 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 useful if everyone is on the same page. Rally the entire factory around performance and productivity with Datanomix TV Mode. Display real-time performance scores on smart TVs in every manufacturing cell and address performance challenges as they happen.

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. Our Coffee Cup Report provides a summary of yesterday’s production, and it’s delivered to your inbox every morning at 6:00 am. Run a successful production meeting by addressing issues instead of chasing people, paper, and parts.

Data-Driven Planning

Do you want to understand the raw capacity and utilization of your factory or job-specific details? Our After Action Report offers insights into performance at a per-job and per-machine level over any given time range, helping with decision-making around staffing, job costing, and capital expenditures. 

No More Reason Codes

Our Automated Downtime InsightsTM automatically categorizes the reasons for expected and unexpected downtime during live production, providing a clear target for which processes to improve and without any operator input.

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.” Our 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.

Improve Continuously

Our Continuous Improvement Hub (CI Hub) consolidates job performance KPIs for factory health into a single dashboard that allows you to quickly track and validate top improvements and opportunities in machine utilization, time to first active part, and cycle time achievement.

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 configure push notifications and pull up their most important reports, including the After ActionCoffee Cup, and Quote Calibration reports.

Alarms & Scheduling

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 shares the history for each job on each machine to help you plan out your schedule based on past results.

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. Our Onboarding Dashboard accelerates the installation and training of Datanomix at your facility. The dashboard is a communication hub between your team and Datanomix Customer Success, with an easy-to-follow and transparent workflow that ensures a smooth and efficient onboarding experience.

Datanomix Production Monitoring FAQs

  • Why does Datanomix not rely reason codes?

    With Datanomix, there is no reason for reason codes.

    “The underlying assumption is that reason codes are necessary because the software doesn’t understand how a job is supposed to run, and therefore cannot possibly tell you whether something is running well or poorly. However, Datanomix has developed an adaptive algorithm that establishes a standard for optimal performance across various metrics, such as cutting time, probing time, touch time, and the number of planned stoppages per cycle, among others. Through G-code analytics, we can determine the cause of each stoppage and the expected duration for each event. Once you have these elements of job performance, you fully understand your process capability without putting any additional burden on your operators.” —Greg McHale, Co-founder, President & CTO, Datanomix

  • How does your scoring system work?

    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 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.

  • How does your software get the benchmark for cycle time? Does someone need to enter a benchmark for every job?

    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.

  • What’s involved in getting the system setup?

    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.

  • How many users does your licensing include?

    Our pricing is per machine per year, not per user. You can have as many user accounts as you’d like.

  • Can this data integrate with my ERP system?

    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.

    Use ProShop?
    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.
