In industrial manufacturing, wireless network can be used in supply chain, retail stock management, electronic security keys, and theft prevention. A proactive and cost effective solution advancement is needed in the industrial manufacturing to monitor and control output performance at a manufacturing plant. It is with this reason that the manufacturers require an efficient communication and real time feedback to maximize uptime and improve productivity. Consistent with the future market of new

The ability of the developed system to function in machine-to-machine wireless communication and the adoption of web-based monitoring and data centralization contributes improvement in reducing errors with human intervention. In this paper we discuss the framework approach of a smart web-based monitoring and data acquisition system on wireless mesh sensor network platform. The evaluations and measurements have been conducted in real world environments which are conducted at selected industrial production factory.
