IoT Certified OptoPartner The Aquila Group helps manufacturers get data they needIf you're a manufacturer interested in improving overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), you may find it difficult to integrate OEE with your manufacturing execution system (MES) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

Why? Because the IT (information technology) software systems traditionally used for MES and ERP don't interface with the PLCs and I/O systems used in production and manufacturing.

Communication protocols are different; technologies are different. 

But The Aquila Group, an IoT Certified OptoPartner, is using Industrial Internet of Things technology to knock down those barriers and build a bridge between IT and OT (operation technology) resources.

Their customers now have visible data for process improvement without disrupting current manufacturing, whether they are small manufacturers or large ones, like Eaton Electrical and Siemens.  

Read how The Aquila Group integrates these systems and provides operators on the shop floor with visibility into real-time production statistics.
