Production information is essential for controlling a company’s production. The awareness and targeted use of data is decisive for constant and positive enhancements of a company. At the moment, many manufacturing companies are still at the very beginning of collecting and using data gathered during production processes. The cost-benefit ratio of the various steps on the way to a high resolution production control is not clear at all. To overcome the hesitation of many small and medium-sized companies in collecting and using more data from their production, migration paths with an explicit focus on the cost-benefit ratio of decisions have to be characterized. This approach will ease the way to gain a suitable information level of a production facility for different objectives. The aim of this paper is to present the targeted approach for the efficient provision of production information in order to enable a high resolution production control.
