Summary of MTConnect Presentation at Mori-Seiki Innovation Days
Surya Kommareddy and I presented MTConnect together. The
title of the talk was:
both a business and technical standpoint. The key point with MTConnect
is that "how" you get the data really matters so I discussed the
benefits of being based on HTTP and XML as well as the importance
of a data dictionary. We took a look at how easy it is to get
MTConnect data by showing how you can use Excel to connect
to any MTConnect enabled piece of manufacturing equipment. Excel
can easily do this because it supports HTTP and XML out of the box.
I discussed the typical steps a shop owner or plant manager will
go through when they decide to embrace MTConnect. I finished
with discussing futures. Surya presented on the many things
that Mori-Seiki is doing with MTConnect and shared many great
tips with the audience. Surya and I answered many great and
probing questions on MTConnect as well. We exchanged many business
cards and look forward to coming back next year.
Thanks Dana and Surya!
