How Smart Manufacturing Software Benefits the Medical Manufacturing Sector

The competitive and highly regulated medical sector is one of the fastest growing segments of today’s manufacturing marketplace. This rapid growth requires smart management—of assets, budgets, processes and more.

Ensuring that every shop-floor asset performs at its best is the key to consistent growth. If even one asset is experiencing more downtime than in-cycle time, production lags and delays can add up to a great deal of wasted time and money. Without proper monitoring software, however, it can be difficult to track which machines may be creating operational inefficiencies or bottlenecks.

Manufacturers need access to real-time metrics on asset performance and production trends, information that can reveal where opportunities to increase efficiency and profitability lie. 5ME’s asset monitoring system is an ideal solution, providing consistent and efficient collection and analysis of vital manufacturing statistics. Configurable reports include data on machine performance, production activity, quality metrics, and asset availability. All metrics and reports are available in real-time, 24/7, from any Internet-ready device.

The FREEDOM™ Smart Manufacturing Platform provides the tools and capabilities to effectively manage facilities, integrating plant-floor assets, personnel, and business systems, and helping to streamline processes and improve operational efficiency and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
