Oakville, Ontario, Canada -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/3/2006 -- The only way to gain real time factory floor information is to ensure a technology that includes these functions:
• Connect to any plant floor equipment
• Web-based reporting
• Email notifications & alarming
• Integrate with enterprise systems
• Remotely manage hundreds of machines
• Automate data entry
It is essential that the technology can connect to any plant floor equipment that has serial, digital, or analog outputs.
This factory floor information can only be effectively achieved with web-based reporting. This functionality allows manufacturers these benefits:
• Obtain real-time immediate access to plant floor information.
• Each device is given an IP address to enable direct access from any PC using a web browser.
• View real-time or historical data for each device by selecting specific data/time ranges or production shifts.
• All data can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.
