Our services extend beyond the equipment layer. We offer supervisory solutions including automation infrastructure, supervisory HMI, data collection, and reporting. Our team is in a unique position to help you build your dream factories with our knowledge of both the equipment and the enterprise layers and how they interact.
One of the most underestimated aspects of a robust supervisory system is the automation infrastructure. This includes networks, security, servers, virtualization, thin clients, mobility, or remote access. Let us help bridge the gap between the plant floor and the enterprise. IT and OT must work together for successful deployments.
Supervisory HMI systems are much more complex than Machine HMI systems. These systems often involve distributed server / client architectures, centralized alarm servers, centralized data servers, and centralized security strategies. They offer greater flexibility such as the ability to view and control any equipment from a central control room or mobile device.
Manufacturing data collection is often a nebulous topic because there are so many options and considerations. Work with us on choosing a cost effective and robust methodology for your application. Options include local CSV datalogging to a thumbdrive or harddrive, SQL-based transactional datalogging, or PI-based time-series datalogging.
REPORTING & ANALYTICS
Once you have collected manufacturing data, it is meaningless until you present it in a clear and effective manner. We have scalable solutions from on-machine reporting to supervisory reporting. This could be batch reporting, alarm reporting, OEE, and more. Let us help with your reporting and analytics needs with platforms such as Dream Report, Inductive Automation, PTC, or Rockwell Automation.
