Manufacturing strives to become a predictable process yet is often undermined by unexpected problems. And both time and money can quickly add up in attempt to discover the root cause. With machines and equipment working together, there are often unforeseen interactions within a process. DCO Systems offer a whole system monitoring approach that works to eliminate guesswork, pinpoint the true issue and maximise data collection. Taking on the bold approach of monitoring the entire system provides a clearer picture for engineers that fills in coverage gaps and reveals hidden problems. There are 3 compelling reasons of why this approach works and how it can drastically improve existing monitoring efforts.
Gain a high-definition picture
Many manufacturers already have a monitoring system in place but need upgraded capabilities. Rather than replacing existing systems, enhancing these efforts are a more cost-effective and immediate solution. DCO’s affordable equipment sensors and dashboard analytics complement already installed monitoring systems and fill in the gaps. Simple plug and play options allow for an extension of the number of machines and performance characteristics monitored. For a true, complete picture of the whole system and performance details, DCO's solutions are scalable and grow with production. With continuous monitoring, DCO’s sensors move engineers into a high-definition world, making the overall view bigger and sharper.
Remotely monitor equipment
Remote monitoring is a key component of whole system monitoring. If a problem arises, engineers need to know about it. DCO’s monitoring tools make it possible to know how machines and processes are functioning at any given moment without being on-site. Equipment sensors securely transmit data to a cloud-based dashboard and is available to engineers on smart phones, tablets or PCs. Information on machines and processes are kept in one centralised dashboard, making it easy for engineers to communicate and diagnose problems.
Receive alerts and notifications
Finally, machines and equipment need maintenance to keep them going strong. DCO Systems’ whole system monitoring gives engineers the advantage of viewing equipment as needing predictive and/or preventative maintenance. Engineers can identify which machines perform well with a routine, scheduled service and which machines carry on well until something goes wrong. And before that ‘something’ goes wrong, dashboard analytics will alert and notify engineers of any inconsistencies that could lead to mechanical production failures.
DCO Systems’ whole system monitoring provides the complete picture, filled with detailed, accurate information. Take the guesswork out of diagnosing problems. See your system in a bold, new way.
