Data Management

Three-dimensional interfaces and associative modeling generate a huge amount of data, especially when combined with the implications of machining and fabrication. This data must then be reconfigured and manipulated to enable the machining and handling of individual parts. These parts must all be labeled, assembled, tracked and installed on time and in the correct location by multiple people. The software developed at EMI enables smooth data transfer that can be accessed at any point in the cutting, assembly or installation. This is primarily done through bar-codes, labels and handheld scanners. By focusing on IT-based solutions instead of solely on high-quality woodworking standards, EMI can easily increase the capacity of complex, architectural projects without compromising time, quality of cost.

This kind of data management and tracking already exists for typical cabinetry and case-goods. EMI now has the capability to do this same kind of fabrication and installation with highly customized projects where no two parts are alike. By breaking from the traditional framework that most millwork sub-contractors fall into and implementing the most innovative and unique methods of data tracking and information management, it is now possible to rethink the way we build and collaborate in a way that reflects twenty-first century manufacturing.  Learn more…
