Manuvis adds energy management to its SaaS offering
Software can monitor energy use on an individual machine basis, as well as capture overall energy use.
Manuvis Corp., maker of event-driven, real-time enterprise manufacturing intelligence software, has added energy management functionality to its FactoryMRI(R) Saas offering. This functionality adds the ability to monitor energy use on an individual machine basis, as well as capture overall energy use. It also provides actionable information and metrics to management.
"With the Lean movement continuing, people are looking to move past the low hanging fruit and tap into more potential cost savings," said David Scott, CEO. "With the increase and volatility of energy costs, we are seeing a great opportunity for manufacturers to take another step forward in operating efficiency."
According to Scott, one FactoryMRI user recently discovered the value of the functionality when preparing for an EPA audit. When the maintenance manager was informed of the audit, he asked the Manuvis team if they could help. Instead of using the traditional method of compiling manual data, a couple of mouse clicks provided an accurate report.
FactoryMRI leverages automatic data collection and analysis to present actionable information to management and operators. When utilized for decision-making, the outcomes are increased performance and lower operating costs. FactoryMRI's service oriented architecture was built with and operates on Progress Software's OpenEdge business application platform.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
