Welcome to Data Driven Manufacturing!

by Eric Allen

Data Driven Manufacturing is the organizational process of using quantifiable numeric measurements of performance, along with qualitative factory floor observation to prioritize and resolve problems in a systemic method, delivering continuously improving world-class results.

This site is dedicated to the collection, reporting, and analysis of data used to drive improved results in the manufacturing sector.

This site has several articles for you to learn more on topics including:

The Machine Cycle Chart
Logic for First Out Stops
Powerpoint Movies
The Trap Timer- the easy way to measure events in intermittent motion

See the “Posts” Menu above to select an article.

View my recent webinar from the Webinar page.

Check back for future enhancements! This site is a work in progress.
