Production Process was founded in 1972 to develop custom controls and instruments.

Industry acceptance of our patented single function data display instruments (30,000 in the field) led to the development of intelligent communicating, multi-function instruments—Machine Data Transducers (MDT). Our supporting Windows software – ProductionACE—continues to evolve with additional capabilities.

Because of its simplicity and “universality” of application, our systems are being installed in every type of discrete parts manufacturing process.

"From the automatically collected OEE data we were able to identify the key elements that are involved with setting up our CNC machines, and to reduce these times and provide an improved delivery service to our customers. We realized a reduction in setup times of 40%, or 1,941 hours annually. The ROI works out to be approximately 3 months."

Growing to serve you better.

The worldwide interest in manufacturing productivity has led to business growth for Production Process.  In order to keep our service levels at their highest and continue innovation, the Company needs additional resources. Thus, as of September 2017, we are now a wholly owned subsidiary of an international consortium of software companies. The consortium and their products will provide unique synergy and additional capabilities within Production Process’ existing offerings, and support future developments including Cloud applications.
