Improve Manufacturing Efficiency with a Product Line Monitoring Software Package


Process monitoring system equipment provides real-time manufacturing defect detection during each step of the manufacturing process. Catching product defects as they occur is less disruptive than identifying issues at the end of the process and is less costly. Process monitoring software also provides real-time data that allows plant engineers to understand where and why the defects occurred, making it easier to prevent issues in the future. 

The Sciemetric sigPOD with PSV™ (process signature verification) software detects defects as they occur in production – where it is most efficient and before they become bigger issues down the line.

Watch this short video to learn more about how sigPOD can help you meet your Manufacturing 4.0 goals.

Data-driven real-time manufacturing defect detection

At the heart of Sciemetric’s technology and sigPOD is the digital process signature. This is a visual representation of everything that happened through every millisecond of a manufacturing process or test cycle. The baseline profile of a pass versus a fail makes it easy to establish a range of acceptable deviation and catch a defect before the part moves on to the next station.

By analyzing and collecting more data points than is typical in conventional test systems, PSV provides the most accurate, reliable, and repeatable measurement of manufacturing processes.

Repeatable waveforms of a healthy process producing good parts. The waveforms in 2 are the obvious failures, which are usually caught. The waveforms in 3, however, are often missed by other monitoring systems because they meet the minimal criteria for a “pass.” These anomalies can point to process issues and/or problems with parts downstream.

The cost savings of commonality across your assembly lines

Standardize your in-process tests with a real-time manufacturing defect detection system designed to streamline test development and accelerate production. sigPOD real-time production line monitoring software and hardware enable your operation to achieve greater efficiency and reduce costs by standardizing part test and process monitoring onto a single platform. Having a common look and feel across multiple testing processes provides an easier learning curve and allows plant personnel to focus on making quality and productivity improvements instead of learning and managing dozens of different types of systems. Experience the benefits of commonality on your assembly line:


Common Hardware: Take less time to learn how to use, set up or apply a new system. If there’s a problem with the system on the line, swap it out fast with another standard box.


Common Software: Work with a standard platform that makes it easy to correlate downstream failures with upstream processes and solve problems faster.


Common Look and Feel: Though adapted for a specific application, all the hardware is the same and all the software looks and feels the same.



Common Learning Curve: Shorten the learning curve for busy engineers and for operators to move between stations without the need for extensive training.


Common Spare Parts: You don’t need to maintain a vast inventory of spares for all kinds of systems. One hardware box can be used for many applications on the line.
