New data collection technologies lead to a significant increase in the amount of process and measurement data. In order to minimize data chaos, existing information needs to be collected, analyzed and presented in a way that’s easy to understand. This is the only way that the data will become the key to more productivity and efficiency – turning Big Data into Smart Data.
How does welding current affect the workpiece geometry? In which processing centers does the location of the boreholes regularly deviate? And on which machines does wear and tear make itself known? These are all questions to which a company needs answers in order to efficiently control their production operations. By correlating various measurement and inspection data from the production floor and measuring labs, ZEISS PiWeb quickly identifies the source of the problem. From a slide gauge to the coordinate measuring machine and the measuring robot – the process analysis tool merges a lot of data from various sources and analyzes it quickly.
