Manufacturers of all sizes face connectivity challenges when attempting to collect operational data from their manufacturing systems to provide robust machine utilization rates, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) tracking, and remote alarm reporting across the shop floor.  This presentation provides an overview of manufacturing process data collection and analysis in the real-world, agile manufacturing environment in RPI’s Manufacturing Innovation Learning Lab (MILL), using Toward Zero’s Apogean™ low-cost smart edge device and software to push detailed manufacturing process data from a variety of modern and legacy manufacturing systems to the CESMII Smart Manufacturing Innovation Platform (SMIP) for storage and analysis.
