How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

(OP)
Are these daily headaches you deal with and if not, what are some you have on a daily basis?

- Reviewing all operator's paper based forms to understand plant, process, safety, quality, etc?

- Communication between operators and engineers about daily plant health (equipment, manufacturing processes, safety incidents, quality incidents, etc)

- Searching multiple systems and paper for root cause data

- Analyzing all of this efficiently for process optimizations

RE: How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

Let me guess... if I have all these problems you're happy to sell me a solution?

RE: How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

(OP)
No, not here to sell anything.

RE: How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

> get ISO-9001 certified and no paper is allowed -- done!
> communication is never a headache; it's a requirement for smooth shift transfers and timely problem solving -- do you want to wait until something actually breaks before doing something?
> again, ISO-9001, so no paper!!!
> is process optimization something that's in your job description? if so, then why is it a headache? otherwise, you need to find some other job.

RE: How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

(OP)
ISO-9001 makes sense. What system do you use that has digital forms?

Process optimization is in my job description. It's a headache because I have to bring together data from a data historian, machines, and quality systems to then analyze them. Our analysis tools are not that powerful, so the models have yet to produce us sufficient improvements to our process inputs.

RE: How do you feel about the engineering tools for data collection and analysis in manufacturing

I don't deal with that part of the business, so don't know; I know that we have created our own forms at one point in time, and they were then tied into the SPC software

Got it, thanks!

SPC looks like it was built for Windows 95....

In our RNTICO workplace, my job is to improve the qualification rate and product quality
