Performance monitoring advantages

Knowing how well your production line is performing, even when there are fewer staff onsite, has never been more important.

High speed machines can provide fast and efficient production capacity but a small error can lead to a lot of giveaway over a relatively short amount of time.

However, ALPMA is leading the way in remote monitoring machine performance – which allows for customer-defined targets to be compared to actual performance. Adjustments can be made and problems avoided before they happen.

ALPMA’s pioneering work in this field is part of what is now being referred to as Industry 4.0. You can read more on that below.

Alpma - Get ahead - Industry 4.0 ready - performance monitoring advantage
Industry 4.0 by Nick Aikenhead, Managing Director, ALPMA GB Limited
Industry 4.0 is the subset of the fourth industrial revolution that concerns industry. The fourth industrial revolution encompasses areas which are not normally classified as industry, such as smart cities.

Although the terms “industry 4.0” and “fourth industrial revolution” are often used interchangeably, “industry 4.0” refers to the concept of factories in which machines are augmented with wireless connectivity and sensors, connected to a system that can visualise the entire production line and make decisions on its own.

In essence, industry 4.0 describes the trend towards automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies and processes which include cyber-physical systems (CPS), the internet of things (IoT), industrial internet of things (IIOT), cloud computing, cognitive computing and artificial intelligence.
The concept includes:

Industry 4.0 fosters what has been called a “smart factory”. Within modular structured smart factories, cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes, create a virtual copy of the physical world and make decentralised decisions.

Over the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and with humans in real-time both internally and across organisational services offered and used by participants of the value chain.
