“Intelligent manufacturing” (IM) means using the combined intelligence of people, processes and machines, to impact the overall economics of manufacturing. Its purpose is to optimize manufacturing resources, improve business value and safety, and reduce waste – both on the floor and in back office operations, all while meeting customer demands for delivery and quality. Manufacturers achieve this with the latest manufacturing execution system (MES), intelligent devices, machine-to-machine communication, and data analysis for its production lines and facilities.

Manufacturers of finished goods and of sub-assemblies in the automotive, agriculture, construction equipment and heavy truck industries rely on our intelligent manufacturing solutions. The essence of our IM solutions is data. Whether a sequencing solution or a complete MES, our solutions gather data to give manufacturers real-time information about their processes so they can more easily forecast trends and perform root-cause analysis. This information guides future production, helps to prevent defects and recalls, and so much more.

Making your manufacturing operations intelligent means staying ahead of the competition. Our solutions expand and improve in tandem with the ever changing and improving manufacturing environment. Our clients look for solutions ranging from point solutions that offer sequencing, defect tracking or packout and labeling, to enterprise-wide manufacturing execution systems

At its core, Intelligent Manufacturing is pretty simple: It’s our way of applying visionary solutions to make your production strategies exceptional.
