The award-winning MEMEX smart manufacturing tool-kit makes the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 come alive on the factory floor. MERLIN Tempus is the took-kit’s software foundation. It equips industrial machines with the necessary interfaces for data-driven manufacturing, then presents that data in Web-enabled dashboard reports so machine operators, factory managers, engineers, production managers, continuous improvement managers and senior management can work together to dramatically improve productivity and profit. MERLIN Tempus delivers a 10%-50% average productivity increase, earns 20%-plus profit improvement based on just a 10% increase in Overall Equipment Effectiveness, achieves payback in less than four months with an Internal Rate of Return greater than 300%, and ensures no machine is left behind – connecting them with MTConnect, other protocols, or MERLIN hardware adapters for older machines. Combined with MERLIN Tempus, MEMEX’s Continuous Improvement Fast-Track Services reveal ongoing factory productivity gains and ROI for years to come.
