- Production Performance Metrics
- Tracking and Traceability
- Manufacturing Execution System Integration
- Process Control and Automation
To compete today, you need your traditional automated systems to integrate with your higher level manufacturing IT and enterprise systems. Our Automation Solutions Team can help you bridge the gap.
To run your plant effectively, you have to be able to see at any moment how all your systems are performing. Production performance metrics must be accurate and readily available. Stakeholders in your plant need access manufacturing data such as: reject counts, OEE, downtime tracking, and more. Production run data must be collected at key trigger points. To make sense of it all, you need a way of organizing and providing context for the data coming from your processes.
Many industries are heading in the direction of tracking material flowing into the plant, being transformed into products, and being shipped to the customer. Lot, material, and part traceability start with your automation systems, which must be capable of organizing and triggering the capture of key material data.
For your manufacturing execution system (MES) to run your processes efficiently, automation is needed to integrate and automate transactions such as: order execution, raw material verification, component verification, recipe delivery, and label printing.
To visualize and tune your process, your automation system devices and data are the focus. Devices need a real time representation of their status and state. Process data from devices needs to be collected historically so you can determine if they have remained under control. Process visualization can unify analog display data, discrete device status, alarms, real time trends, system parameters, and more.
We understand manufacturing. We know that every plant is unique. We take the time to understand your manufacturing problems and goals, your facility, and your people. We help you define, design, develop, and execute the challenge of integrating your equipment, systems, and information. Keeping things simple, using standard off-the-shelf packages where appropriate, we deliver timely and meaningful results.
