Manufacturers looking at data

When we talk to manufacturers, sometimes we find that the difference between machine data and actual part production data has gone unnoticed. While both have their role to play, one is not a substitute for the other, as they don’t measure the same things. This blog post discusses the pros and cons of these different data systems to help you decide what's right for you.

Optimizing limits on your manufacturing test processes eliminates false failures and reduces the risk of giving bad parts a passing grade. This blog post discusses how to use digital process signatures to set more effective limits, more quickly, to produce higher quality parts, lower scrap/rework rates, and experience fewer recalls or warranty claims.
