A week from today (May 1st), I'll be presenting to Center for Advanced Manufacturing Puget Sound (CAMPS) on the topic of understanding data and how manufacturers can integrate it. You can register for the free event below. Let's touch briefly on what you can expect.

Simplify the Way you look at Data

Without a clear understanding of the end result, data collection can become another form of waste. Why continue to spend money and energy collecting something that you have no intention of using? Instead, you should identify what data is exchanged most regularly and look for ways to automate it.


Learn about APIs and Webhooks

You do not need a coding background to understand this section of the presentation, and even if you are already familiar with APIs and Webhooks I'm confident I'll provide you with new insight. We will review common, real-world opportunities to integrate shop floor management systems you already utilize.

Envisioning the Possibilities

Now I promise that I will avoid abstract theories and keep the presentation practical and easily relatable. However, as we peel back the layers of opportunity you will begin to see how your factory can achieve new forms of automation that hadn't been previously available. You have to walk before you run, but you will realize that running is not too difficult to accomplish.

Prioritizing Change and Crafting a Roadmap

The best way to make a project succeed is to have it well planned. I'll review the methods and tools that we use at Scout Systems to align our efforts with manufacturers and results in a 92% customer satisfaction rate. These methods are not complex, yet they are profoundly helpful.

Understanding the Potential of Work Instructions

As you begin to visualize the vast possibilities of data automation, you will see how work instruction software is far more than a tool to assist Operators with complex processes. This technology acts as both a form of data collection, but also a critical part in triggering events that take place in your factory.

Even if you are not ready today to begin the transformation to a full digital factory, you can sign up now and access our free work instruction software. Doing so will ensure that the work instructions you document today will be formatted for the integration of the future.
