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

Continuous Improvement Hub

Our major new reporting workflow is designed to give business leaders and continuous improvement personnel insights into overall factory performance, as well as top opportunities for improvement. The CI Hub consolidates key performance indicators for factory health into a single dashboard that allows users to quickly track and validate improvements and identify risks and opportunities to meet factory business goals.

What’s the Value of Datanomix in Your Shop?

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

  • How does your Fusion Factor 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—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.

  • 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. If you are looking for deeper insights from your ERP system, you should consider our Digital GEMBA Board 🙂
