The digital world of manufacturing consists of 3 industry standard protocols: OPC UA, Modbus, and MT Connect. These standards make up how we communicate with the machine-tool world. Once you understand what protocol you want to use then you must decide how you want to visualize your data ie build your own system or use an existing system. Nowadays everyone has monitoring software to monitor machine tools but its how you use the tools inside that help you drill down to make progress.
