When starting with production development, it is important to determine the current state and make it transparent. Industrial IoT introduces a wealth of opportunities for automatic data collection on the production process to map out its current state. Data collected from machines alone is however not enough, but you need people, most often the operator working in production, to enrich the data.
Manage factory jobs and development with a single system – experience the easiest-to-use MES on the market
Improving productivity begins with collecting data from machines and people
3 reasons to collect data from production machines automatically:
Digitized production data in support of shop floor management
The key factors for excellent production daily management are reliable and real-time data collection from production, modern management of maintenance and production planning, and data visualization that improves understanding. High-quality and real-time data forms the basis for daily decision-making. Fact-based predictions can improve production efficiency by as much as dozens of percent.
Production shop floor management is done on the factory floor. Production supervision will get together with operative employees at a common meeting, where the visualization of production key figures and deviations, participation, and data sharing play the key roles.
Collect production machine and device data with a modern IIoT solution
Get the operator involved in the role of data enricher
The operator analyzes, comments, and supplements machine data with their personal observations
Make daily decisions relating to continuous improvement on the basis of the collected information
Lead your manufacturing and your people on the basis of reliable real-time information
The MES system visualizes the collected and enriched data as information in a single and clear user interface

Our customers’ experiences:
Fazer Makeiset Oy
Machine Track is linked to the SAP system used throughout the Fazer Group. “SAP gives us a production plan and Machine Track gives us a realization that can then be compared.”
– Toni Kaljunen, maintenance foreman
“The deployment was smooth and took a week. The reform was very well received by the staff and there were no complaints about the system. Machine Track helps us identify production problems and identify the causes behind them.”
– Lauri Multanen, production manager
As the benefits of single-pack data collection began to materialize, the use of the system was expanded. Today, Orion has approximately 50 different manufacturing and packaging machines under surveillance. “Machine Track is the most important tool for determining production efficiency.”
– Vesa Väyrynen, foreman of the packing station
The factory’s five bottling lines and two tap packaging lines were brought under modern production management. “We get really good data from individual machines. Fact on the table. We know, for example, what is causing the line to malfunction. ”
– Markus Valtonen, production manager
Turku shipyard has acted as a pioneer in the utilisation of robotics and Machine Track by Pinja -system has been used since the beginning to facilitate the development of automated production. The system is used by the robot operators, foremen, and shipyard maintenance personnel alike.
“In addition to the hygiene and traceability criteria, more and more companies are very careful about their reputation and the activities of their subcontractors. Our customers can, if they wish, verify that the taxes and other obligations of each person working on the machine are complied with by law.”
