What is Predator MDC Administrator?
Predator MDC Administrator is designed for the manufacturing department head or IS/manufacturing project lead to manage real-time machine monitoring processes centered on time and utilization. This seat is required with every purchase and allows for the creation of equipment, departments, locations, shifts, parts, reason codes, users, permissions and other administrative tasks.
Predator MDC creates a continuously up to date knowledge base of your manufacturing performance. It quantifies how well your machines, people, and parts are produced. Predator MDC can establish and compare continuous improvement results for lean manufacturing efforts. Predator MDC organizes your real-time data into actionable metrics for availability, quality, and performance. Metrics for specific machines or rolled up metrics for an entire department across multiple plants are available with a few mouse clicks.
Predator MDC supports automatic, error-free, and unattended machine monitoring for events such as job start and end, set up start and end, cycle start and end, to name a few of the events that can be monitored. This type of data is collected automatically using software, hardware, custom macros and other methods without requiring operator training or input.
Predator MDC also supports manual monitoring of events that are initiated by machine operators such as machine login/offs, downtimes, and scrap reasons. Predator MDC can be used to manually collect data using several methods including Remote Request™, swiping bar codes, touchscreen PCs or standard PCs.
Predator MDC supports up to 4096 CNC machines, robots, PLCs, ATE Test Stands, band saws, dot peen markers and other equipment per PC for simultaneous cycle time, setup time, teardown time, downtimes with reasons, good parts, scrap parts with reasons and an unlimited number of user-defined events.

Dedicate one or more large-screen monitors on the shop floor for real-time digital signage. Create slides of charts, dashboards, and reports with specific filters and details. Eliminate manual posting of paper reports and charts. Provide a focal point for stand-up shop meetings while enforcing productivity and manufacturing metrics that management, engineering, and quality departments care about.
