Edge2Web Factory Insights Q&A


When will Edge2Web Factory Insights be commercially available?

Edge2Web Factory Insights is available today. Please contact sales@edge2web.com to discuss your needs and timetables.


How much do Edge2Web Factory Insights subscriptions cost?

For details about Edge2Web Factory Insights pricing, please visit the Factory Insights pricing page


Is Factory Insights approved by AWS technical best practices?

Yes. Factory Insights security, scalability, resilience, and development practices have been evaluated and approved by AWS through the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) process. As defined by the FTR, Factory Insights is a well-architected AWS solution.

Can Factory Insights core functionality be customized and extended?

Yes. Factory Insights includes an optional upgrade that includes a deeply discounted subscription for Edge2Web Director and the Edge2Web Menu Editor tool. Using this upgrade, customers and systems integrators can extend Factory Insights functionality and easily integrate those custom extensions into the core application, giving end users a seamless, cohesive user experience.

What is needed to stand-up Factory Insights at our site?

For greenfield installations, you will need to create an asset model in AWS IoT SiteWise, populate the model with data for each of your assets, and configure an AWS gateway to ingest your factory data streams (e.g., from machines, processes, etc.). Factory Insights provides tools to help model and onboard your assets, and AWS provides data acquisition services and best practices.

Brownfield installations that already have factory data flowing into SiteWise simply need to use Factory Insights tools to add a small number of OEE properties to existing SiteWise asset models.

In addition to the above data modeling/acquisition activities, your plant domain experts will need to configure the Factory Insights app for your shop. Factory Insights allows you to easily configure your shift schedules, machine state maps, reason trees, OEE thresholds, and more. You can also set up team and machine groupings and access policies. Once configured to your preferences, Factory Insights will be operational and secure.

Edge2Web, AWS, and our IoT implementation partners can help you stand-up Factory Insights in the shortest time with minimal disruption to your operations.

How can we purchase Edge2Web Factory Insights subscriptions?
