Critics who question the growth of the cloud delivery model will likely be stopped in their tracks when they hear about one of our recent manufacturing milestones.
Manufacturers who use Kors Engineering’s MACH2 product to automate cloud transactions with plant floor machines through programmable logic controllers (PLCs) have now cumulatively managed more than 350 million plant floor transactions with this tool.
Sure, 350 million is just a number — but it’s a pretty big one.
Here’s another way to look at it: Today, manufacturers process an average of 1,000 transactions a minute using this product. That number has grown steeply since we launched the tool for Plex Manufacturing Cloud users in 2002.
So, manufacturers have now automated 350 million transactions with plant floor machines through PLCs, third-party controllers, human machine interfaces, visual management systems, barcode readers, printers and other systems. Not only is that total number impressive, but individual transactions have been escalating year over year.
Best-in-class manufacturers are riding this plant floor integration trend to achieve operational excellence in six ways:
