Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence Market Experiencing Rapid Growth
The Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI) market is one of the fastest growing segments of the CPM/ MES global automation software and service markets. The market growth is a result of manufacturers need for timely information to support and drive operational decisions.
Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence, sometimes called Manufacturing Intelligence or Collaborative Manufacturing Intelligences, consists of the framework of integrated software and services that bring a company’s manufacturing data from disparate sources together for reporting, analysis, visual summaries, and synchronizing data between enterprise-level and plant floor systems.
EMI can be used at the plant level to improve operational visibility and collaboration and exchange of data between plant floor and enterprise systems or at the enterprise level to benchmark and visualize plant operations for operational excellence.
A common goal for using EMI is to turn plant data into useful knowledge that drives more informed business decisions. The core components of EMI include application connectors, data integration, data collection, contextualization, a data map or production model, analytics and visualization, reports or dashboards.
Currently, there is a lot of activity with respect to users, suppliers, and technology in this market because of the technologies’ ability to decrease costs, implement global standards and best practices, and improve performance. Users want EMI tools that are easy to use and deploy, and enable collaboration for real-time decision making and subsequent actions. Suppliers are re-sponding with integration tools, models and pre-built templates, easy to use analysis tools, and other enabling applications and mobile devices. In addition, cloud computing with EMI data is just over the horizon.
