When you need to make better decisions using your data


Hallam-ICS Manufacturing Intelligence team can turn your data into crucial business information.

Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) enables you to see the trends and improve outcomes with the power that data brings. It helps to answer the important questions:

  • What is happening on your plant floor today?
  • How efficient is your equipment?
  • What are the reasons for production downtime and waste?
  • What reduces productivity and where can you make improvements?

Manufacturing Intelligence targets a wide range of users, including operations, quality control, engineering, and management. Manufacturers, utility operators, and facility managers can benefit from the data in their controls, automation, and production systems.

Manufacturing Intelligence works by acquiring the plant floor data and transforming it into meaningful information. Manufacturing Intelligence can consolidate data from several systems and summarize it into information over long periods. The story behind your data may then be viewed as:

  • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and trends
  • Production data and statistics
  • Batch reports with trends of key measured values, batch steps, alarms, and events

Collected and consolidated data can be turned into meaningful insight for your business. Armed with that information you can make better operational and financial decisions.
