The Industry 4.0 platform for
Leveraging manufacturing data to drive smart business outcomes
Data from machines drives local and global action
Powered by rich machine data, the ArchFX platform automatically surfaces actionable insights into electronics manufacturing operations, driving better business outcomes at every level of the organization.
ArchFX delivers the data collection and expert analysis that increase efficiency and performance for electronics manufacturers. Our customers not only see a global information of their factories and lines, their teams can also drill down to granular machine-level performance. This provides immediate answers to questions they already have and surfaces new improvement opportunities- making operations more proactive.
The future of electronics manufacturing is analytics-inspired efficiency
The competitive manufacturer of the future doesn’t improve next quarter’s production efficiency or capacity just by looking at a chart of last month’s output. The ERP and the MES alone are not enough information for today’s manufacturing challenges. Modern data technology can deliver granular, real-time data and then use AI to identify problems and drive optimization. We built ArchFX to prove it.
Global KPIs: Just the beginning
Global key performance indicators (GKPIs) can keep score and provide certain valuable insights. The ArchFX Global KPIs Solution gives manufacturers accurate, continuously up-to-date views of performance within their global manufacturing operations.
While GKPIs captures valuable utilization improvement opportunities over a timescale of days, manufacturers can now move beyond simple utilization and analyze the rich machine data to drive advanced analytics models for SME’s and real-time actionable dashboards for line operations teams.
What is limiting efficiency? When will there be a breakdown that stops production? Why is one factory more productive than others? What do we change to meet the takt time? Aggregated data from machines on the manufacturing line answer these questions and many others.
Newer machines typically have software solutions provided by the manufacturer– however, centralizing and normalizing that data across multiple machines is a slow and manual process.
Older machines all along the line are also critical to the equation– yet lack modernized connectivity.
You need complete information to realize Industry 4.0 goals, so Arch deploys software and hardware connectivity to every machine- specifically designed to capture the richest data possible. All the data from every machine on the line is now visible, regardless of vendor and together in one place.
With normalized data and industry-specific analysis, you get actionable visibility across the entire organization– founded on the invaluable minutia of rich machine-level data.
“Arch is being deployed across many of our digital factories to capture the relevant analytics that help us drive production efficiencies, process automation, and predictive analytics. Arch is an integral part of our I4.0 strategy to capture and transform real time shopfloor data into actionable insights. This allows us to provide increased output and quality to our customers. We are very happy with our partnership.”
