Wintriss Controls Group’s ShopFloorConnect 6.0 shop floor data collection software gathers production data from machines in the factory, displays the key performance indicators in real-time, and produces detailed analytics. According to the company, the data collected by this software can reduce machine downtime by as much as 70 percent. 

This flexible production monitoring system is compatible with ERP software so it is especially useful for manufacturers in industries such as packaging, food, beverage, discrete manufacturing, metalforming and metal fabrication. The software provides OEE calculations that report equipment effectiveness for even complex manufacturing environments. The production tracking software is said to provide machine downtime and manufacturing efficiency reports via a web browser and email and integrates with existing systems.
