Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence Helps Transform Manufacture of Medical Devices

Today's manufacturers make increasing use of enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) solutions, which offer the potential to improve processes and reduce costs, to help address their key challenges. The term enterprise manufacturing intelligence, also sometime referred to as "operational intelligence" or "manufacturing intelligence," applies to the technology and practices available to tap into the vast amount of plant data; contextualizing and exposing it as intelligent information with analytics, dashboards, and other visualization tools.

While EMI is not a new technology, its use is growing. This is partly due to new and improved ancillary technologies and tools, such as mobile devices, collaborative tools, analytics, visualization technologies; and better integration capabilities; and partly because of the enormous benefits that can be realized.

So what value are manufacturers realizing from implementing EMI applications? According to one U.S. medical device manufacturer, the company used EMI technology to collect, integrate and analyze data; reduce silos to improve collaboration; and increase its manufacturing efficiencies.
