Abstract: An introduction to FMS (Flexible Manufacturing System) with real-time data acquisition is represented. Many companies are seeking data-driven solutions to reduce the costs of handling the frequent problems in manufacturing. The Digital Factory begins by finding the association between real-time production data and management decisions. The further challenge is the management of real-time information requiring an overall MIS (Management Information System) strategy for large data volumes. Different time horizons and tasks are listed: real-time event tagging and tracking; Data-warehousing and Management Context; Data-Warehousing in Digital Factory and End-to-end Data-Driven MIS Model. Value-added data streams are explained, as is the function of the Digital Factory data-warehouse and the FMS Digital Factory User Interface and Digital Factory MIS Building Blocks. Quick responses to operational events are a principal benefit of the Digital Factory, which can be retrofitted into a factory incrementally and economically. Financial benefit accrues from fewer errors.
