Launched in 2019, FourJaw Manufacturing Analytics by founders Chris Iveson and Robin Hartley is a new start-up that has grown out of the University of Sheffield’s globally recognised Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).
FourJaw has a clear vision of using big data to make Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining as efficient as mass manufacturing. FourJaw delivers data-driven manufacturing analytics that are accessible and affordable, providing tangible benefits to manufacturers’ bottom line and shop floors.
Providing specialist solutions to manufacturers, FourJaw had developed a unique Manufacturing Execution System which helps manufacturers improve shop floor productivity by unlocking CNC data and insights.
The system they built performed by:
So, what were they missing? – Although the team had the right information to help clients to streamline performance, they did not have a platform that could present this information in a digestible and accessible way.
They needed some digital experts to help build a user-friendly platform that could be accessed on the go. So, they approached The Curve.
Our team took a hands-on approach to understanding what information was important to FourJaw’s clients to be able to build a platform that would prioritise and carefully demonstrate these.
It was identified that the platform must present the following information:
The Curve then began building and refining an application that presented the real-life data from the Manufacturing Execution system on a live dashboard that could be accessed from a mobile or desktop. This user-friendly application made it easy for manufacturing professionals to have quick access to help make tangible improvements to their operations.
