Sharing best practices in Smart Manufacturing is important to customers, and MEMEX as an industry leader worked with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) in 2017 and presented many recorded presentations, webinars and podcast, that are available here for you to download and view at your leisure.

Webinar: Are You Leveraging Data Driven Manufacturing?

Emerging technology is enabling both people and equipment to collect and process the facts they need to achieve better results.

Data-Driven Manufacturing is fast becoming the foundation on which continuous improvement programs are based due to the real-time objective data that is collected and disseminated to the operational management team tasked with the responsibility of attaining sustainable manufacturing excellence.

Webinar: Data-Driven Manufacturing: Providing foundation for Continuous Improvement initiatives

Manufacturers know that the key to staying in business is to be competitive. But to grow the business and become more successful, manufacturers need to improve their efficiency. One of the most successful means of doing this is to embark on a Continuous Improvement program, which makes small, measurable changes that affect a manufacturer’s Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and improve the business’ profitability.

Video presentation @ SME’s Smart Manufacturing Hub

SME Smart Manufacturing Hub is a dynamic area featuring advanced manufacturing technologies like automation, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) and more. MEMEX, presented in the Smart Manufacturing Hub at Eastec, Westec, South-tec & CMTS. The topics covered:

  • IIoT: 4 Factors You Need to Know
  • Data-Driven Manufacturing: Making IIoT and Industry 4.0 Come Alive on the Factory Floor
  • Serving your stakeholders: Giving everybody the tools and information they need to do their jobs better
  • The real need for Real-Time data
  • Carrying on the Legacy: Integrating older, mission-critical systems with corporate networks
  • Delivering advantages: the case for Data-Driven Manufacturing
  • Continuous Improvement in the Data-Driven Manufacturing era
  • The missing link: Why you need machine connectivity on your shop floor

Podcast: The philosophy and application of data-driven manufacturing  

A manufacturing concern can get the greatest return on its investment by optimizing its overall equipment effectiveness, or OEE. In this podcast hosted for SME, MEMEX CEO David McPhail details the relationship between OEE and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Data, he explains, is what drives this relationship. Data-driven manufacturing consists of keeping track of everything that happens on the shop floor, and software, including MEMEX’s MERLIN Tempus solution, helps monitor and manage that data.
