Quick Notification to Leadership of Issues that Machine Operators are Having

The Challenge

SMP was losing valuable time when machines sent out warning alerts. They needed to create a custom, efficient alert program. Off-the-shelf options were too expensive, and the ‘old school’ wired programs available were inconsistent with SMP's business model.

Plant leaders also needed a more visible dashboard to show and tell management the ‘real’ business picture.

The Solution

SMP machine operators value the new game-changing alert system, named “SiMP”. Armed with the new technology, manufacturing leadership can immediately attend to the critical alert response now within minutes or even seconds. Operators and managers save time and resources while limiting scrap and machine downtime.
