You know you need software to understand what’s happening in the plant, in real-time, while helping you understand capacity, and figure out where you stand. But, with so many manufacturing software options, where do you even start?
This blog will compare Mingo vs. Worximity, two common manufacturing software options. By the end, you should have a better understanding of which is going to better suit your needs.
While both Mingo and Worximity are software designed for manufacturers, there are major differences between the two. Worximity is a simple solution that only focuses on monitoring the machines in the plant. It will provide you with very basic data points, but you will be limited in the type of data you can collect and understand, as well as limited in your ability to collect data from PLCs or manually via operators on the floor. As with other basic software solutions, manufacturers often will outgrow it over time.
However, there are software solutions that offer more features and capabilities without added expense or complexity. With Mingo, you can:

Both Mingo and Worximity primarily focus on discrete manufacturing. Within the discrete manufacturing software vertical, Worximity focuses heavily on the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries whereas Mingo covers a broad range of industries.
If you’re looking for a very simple solution, Worximity may be the software you choose, but keep in mind that you will likely grow out of its functionality. While limited data sets are good for manufacturers just starting out, your needs and requirements will likely grow quickly. In that case, Mingo may prove to be the better manufacturing productivity solution. We understand the choice of manufacturing software is difficult which is why we’ve linked out to the additional resources below.
At the end of the day, you need visibility into what’s happening in the plant. You need to get control of your schedule, reduce unplanned downtime and overtime, focus on your continuous improvement efforts, ensure quality, eliminate manual reporting, improve margins, increase efficiencies, and know what’s happening in real-time. It may sound impossible and overwhelming, but with the right manufacturing productivity software, it becomes possible (and much less daunting).
As you know, choosing the right solution is no easy feat. You have to make sure it’s going to help you achieve your goals. So, how and where do you start the selection process?
First and foremost, you need to outline your goals and what you’d like to achieve with a manufacturing productivity solution. Then, do your due diligence. Set up custom demos, talk to the sales teams, read reviews from sites like Capterra and SoftwareAdvice, see what companies are writing about via blogs, and learn from other manufacturers who use the software solutions. There’s so much research you can do prior to choosing software for the plant. When you’ve done this, you’ll be much more equipped to decide which software, Mingo vs. Worximity, is going to be the better solution for your needs.
