Take the Pulse of Your Factory with M-Box Monitoring System

How a monitoring system drives your factory's efficiency


Much to my surprise, these little devices were shown to increase physical activity by just over 2,000 steps, or about 1 mile of walking per day

Anyone using a Fitbit or step-counter (pedometer) on their mobile phone knows its impact. It drives to more exercise, more steps. 

This article from Stanford University describes research that confirms the psychological impact:

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found that the use of a pedometer is associated with significant increases in physical activity and weight loss and improvements in blood pressure.

How Monitoring System can be a pedometer for a Factory

The same principle applies for factory operations, where performance data are caught in OEE-metrics, as a part of the lean philosophy. An interesting article on how monitoring the shop floor is as taking the pulse of the factory was published by Advanced Manufacturing.

Although the experts in the article agree that monitoring is an essential tool on the way to improvement of OEE-KPI’s on the way to lean, they flag that an astonishing low rate as 4% of the machines out there are monitored.

The set-up procedure and cost are the main factors that inhibit a much wider deployment of monitoring tools. That’s before M-Box came in.

M-Box Monitoring System will drive your factory to a new level of efficiency

Machine Monitoring System universally applied to any industrial machine

With M-Box you can bring any machine on-line for monitoring within an hour at cost of just a few $ per month. The external sensors do not only make it universally applicable and easy to install, it also is a 100% protection against malicious hackers taking control of your equipment.
