What is Product Monitoring?
Keep your factory responsible start to finish. Manufacturing Monitoring implies an on-site Product Inspection conducted every day of your production. An inspector scrutinizes your factory, enforcing your requirements, picking units at random for inspection and detecting and removing flaws. You receive daily updates about quality and completion progress, putting you in control of the whole process. Production Monitoring keeps your product constant and to your requirements.
For all inspections, QIMA employs the standard globally accepted ANSI/ASQC Z1.4 (ISO 2859-1) statistical sample technique. These extensive criteria cover: usefulness, performance, durability, overall look, and size. Inspection certifications are provided if required in the letter of credit.
How does real-time monitoring work?
Real-time monitoring transmits the active and continuing state of an IT environment. It may be customized to focus on certain IT assets and at desired granularity.
Types of real-time data include the following:
CPU and memory usage;
application response time;
web server requests; and
Generally, real-time monitoring software presents important data on customized dashboards. Administrators can choose to show expected data ranges and formats as numerical line graphs, bar graphs, pie charts or percentages. The presentations of the data can be adjusted according to priorities and administrator preferences.
Benefits of real-time monitoring
Collecting real-time monitoring data helps IT administrators instantly analyze and respond to current occurrences in the IT environment. Moreover, companies may collect and analyze real-time data over time to discover patterns and better notice irregularities that fall outside predefined boundaries of system and application behavior. This is known as trend monitoring.
Reactive monitoring vs. proactive monitoring: Reactive monitoring is a long-established troubleshooting approach in IT companies and data centers. The distinguishing trait of this procedure is conveyed by its name: It reacts to triggers that signify an event has happened.
By comparison, proactive monitoring uses monitoring data without requiring a trigger event. In this technique, a monitoring tool may forecast problems — such as a memory leak — that, if unaddressed, might crash an application or an entire server. AI and machine learning are being applied to proactive monitoring to search through data, identify cyclical trends and flag dangerous activities.
From its early development in the late 1980s, pre-vis has developed into a vital element of the film production pipeline. Yet the traditionally lightweight nature of the simple assets utilized as part of pre-vis has perhaps held it back. Directors have been delighted to utilize less realistic models, with basic animations, because of the speed of planning they offer.
But improvements in real-time pre-vis imply that directors don’t have to compromise quality for much longer. They can inform their shoots in high definition, with real-time playback, and high-quality materials that can be utilized throughout the whole production process – whether on site or in post.
An early example of this was shown in the production of Avatar, during which James Cameron created software so he could imagine what his actors would look like interacting in a space as 10-foot-tall aliens. The ability to accomplish this immediately, without needing to send the scene out for a day’s rendering, demonstrates how far the technology has progressed.
Real-time production facilitates the convergence of formerly separate processes to allow for more joined-up filming. We’ll come back to the notion of on-set virtual production momentarily, but an example of real-time approaches mixing pre-vis and on-set can be seen in the creation of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In this movie, we can see how director Gareth Edwards employed a virtual camera in order to line up the shots for the film’s climax space fight, which had previously been animated in pre-vis.

Examples of real-time monitoring
Real-time monitoring may be utilized in various sectors and circumstances, notably in IT and manufacturing, to enable fast reaction to transitory events:
Server and data center management can utilize real-time data to forecast imminent equipment breakdowns and maintenance. Additionally, utilizing streaming telemetry instead of basic network management protocol to collect network data provides a more realistic image of network performance.
In software development and testing, synthetic and passive monitoring employ real-time data to mimic user interactions with software, observe what consumers view and identify problems before the program is launched to production.
Contact centers can utilize real-time data for queue and personnel management, to maintain queue uptime and to report statistics regarding service.
In sales, agents might get an alert when clients are interested in high-value or high-margin products.
Web store solutions can gather and analyze streaming data to indicate lost sales opportunities due to low inventory. They also utilize AI to identify coupon fraud where a client uses a code numerous times against its conditions.
Real-time data gathering for vehicle fleet management may assist detect irresponsible, drowsy and intoxicated drivers as well as enhance fleet usage.
RFID tracking in retail can allow real-time updates on inventory and theft detection.
On-set, virtual production
The utilization of virtual production on-set is the element of real-time production technology that is now catching the industry’s curiosity. And why not? The prospect of giving directors and actors access to quick and accurate feedback when performing against green screens or interacting with CGI characters and environments is certainly exciting, and could mean the end of hastily arranged (not to mention costly) re-shoots that arise from problems encountered in post.
Some filmmakers are already utilizing this approach. John Favreau’s Jungle Book, shot entirely against green screen with only one actual human present — the brilliant young actor Neel Sethi as Mowgli – used it in plenty. Skip to 8:30 in this video and you can see the technology in use: when Neel walks through a green-screen sound stage, the monitor shows him walking through a countryside filled with wildlife.
However, as the video also demonstrates, the quality of the CGI models utilized inside virtual production is still very primitive — indicating that while real-time production is now feasible, it is not yet able to generate high-quality film images.
Before we get serious, let’s allow ourselves to get carried away a bit. What may the “nirvana” for real-time production look like?
Better pre-visualization than ever before, with directors able to experiment with
