Is Your Automation Application Capable Of Extracting Data From Your Tools?

Prahlad and Hamel stated in their studies that Data mining is a key attribute, which is essential for applying strategic leverage. The data generated from your process is extremely crucial and helps you develop deeper cognition of the process. If the data generated from the process is carefully analyzed, it could contribute to the overall knowledge base and in-turn lead to a higher competency level. Every process and every organization generates huge volumes of data every day, but is hardly ever put to use, the reason for this is the inability to extract and analyze process data. This can be a fatal error on any organization’s part; in today’s cut-throat competition it is essential to have a deep and profound knowledge about the process and its performance.
Data generated from process equipment and tools is extremely important and needs to be provided to the management for decision making and competency recognition. Tools and equipment provide data that can help you realize the chinks in your process’ armor. This data is highly significant if there is high level of competition in the market or you are looking to become the best-in-class operation. So ask yourself this question- Is my automation application capable of extracting data from my process equipment? If the answer is no, which is the most likely answer, you should reconsider the application in place.
Gurus of performance excellence have always said that any phenomenon that can be measured can be controlled; any measurement produces data, data when collected and processed becomes information, this information when analyzed becomes learning, learning over time leads to knowledge. This process knowledge is what makes an ordinary operation an excellent one. If you fail to collect and manipulate data, then according to the above analogy your process knowledge is incomplete, thus you can never attain your true potential.
Having established the importance of information, now let us consider the ways to harness it and consider how this harnessed information can lead to process knowledge and help achieve the hidden potential. First we need to establish the parameters that are vital to the performance of the Organization from a customer and market perspective. Then we need to collect this data and analyze it for better performance. But data collection and analysis can be cumbersome and time taking when performed manually. This accentuates the need for an automated and integrated system for data collection and analysis, that collects the process data in real time, analyzes it and presents it in the form of information that can aid decision making. The choice of the right technology partner is crucial if you are to achieve the true potential of your process operation.
