Manufacturing Intelligence Solution Provides Real-Time Analytics
Northwest Analytics launched the NWA Focus EMI, a next-generation enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) solution that provides complete data source integration, and real-time process analytics and visibility. The solution’s two accelerating modules, KnowledgeBase and Collaboration, were designed to improve a user’s ability to accumulate and disseminate knowledge across the entire enterprise and collaborate across geographically dispersed manufacturing operations.
NWA Focus EMI supports all commercial databases. It directly accesses data where it ‘lives,’ combining data from multiple sources and applying analytics in real time to support and drive operational decisions. The system-wide KnowledgeBase module consolidates process, quality and problem-solving knowledge in a single, discoverable database that supports shared knowledge and best practices across plant and global operations.
The cloud-based Collaboration module mobilizes expertise and experience across the enterprise to solve critical production issues. Asynchronous communication integrates text, graphics, pictures, documents, and video to seamlessly share important, complex information. This ensures the right people have the right information and context to solve the most pressing manufacturing issues quickly. Implementation of the EMI solution averages one to three weeks and output is often returned in a few hours.
