Arch Systems, the leading provider of machine data and analytics for electronics assembly operations, has just released its newest product, the Arch FX Action Manager, allowing factory operators to automate responses to alerts using real-time data and built in industry knowledge.
Action Manager builds on the award-winning ArchFX platform, which uses modern data and connectivity technology to collect, store, and analyze machine performance signals. Combined with expert industry knowledge, Action Manager identifies issues on the factory floor and automates responses to them.
“Not only can Action Manager help solve problems faster, it enables IT and OT to work together in an unprecedented way,” said Arch CTO, Tim Burke. “Operations can make use of information that is inspired by the best practices in the industry using data direct from the machines on the factory floor, without additional support from IT teams.”
The ArchFX Platform combines direct-to-machine connectors, globally scalable data brokers, cloud-based analytics, and action monitoring capabilities for an end-to-end solution that achieves record speed from project conception to analytics-driven actions. Millions of data points from all over the globe are sent every hour through ArchFX’s advanced AI/ML technologies. With the largest library of SMT machine connectors in the world, ArchFX extracts and processes data in just days and weeks, not years, all without disrupting existing operations.
Arch has built the largest collaboration of industry domain experts working hand-in-hand with data scientists to constantly map new signals from the noisy data, adding them to the ever-growing library of actionable insights. These insights are changing how manufacturers tackle their most complex problems, allowing them to simplify and align actions both on the shop floor and the top floor.
