Data Collection

Modern manufacturing processes produce an enormous amount of data that, if collected and properly utilized, can provide valuable information that can aid organizations in making business decisions and lead to significant competitive advantage.

Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to collect and capture all of the relevant data that you have available to you so that it can become useful. Sophos Electronics consultants are experts on data collection techniques and we have various tools at our disposal that can help your company solve this challenging problem. Some of the many techniques we use to help our clients capture data include: PLC integration, Remote Terminal Units integration, SCADA, digital pen and paper solutions, RFID, bar codes, etc.
