Brent Stromwall, Vice President of Business Development for Polytron discusses Manufacturing Intelligence Solutions and Continuity of Performance.
He explained how important it is for plant manager to understand the business beyond what can be learned from MES. Personnel up and down the hierarchy – from the C-Level to plant managers to operators on the floor – need information; about downtime, OEE, quality, safety, maintenance, operations and myriad of other things.
Everyone recognizes the need for data driven decisions, but not everyone knows how to get information without spending a bundle. Brent explains how to make that happen with Manufacturing Intelligence Solutions
Brent also provided some fascinating perspective about Continuity of Performance. The notion of a customer achieving excellence after Polytron finishes a project and leaves is quite unique. “Communication with and education of all stakeholders is just as important as a great technical solution,” says Stromwall. “It takes more effort, but pays off for both us and our customers in the long run.”
