Problem Statement

Agricultural manufacturers of all sizes are not able to consistently measure productivity and efficiencies of machines to make effective comparisons between one make and model or multiple makes and models using current data collection systems. This is due to an unchanged metric system that current technology in agriculture uses to measure the productivity. This way doesn’t measure non-productive time effectively.
