Bringing Plant data to everyone’s desktop
ActiveFactory software includes a suite of client applications that maximise the value of the data stored in the Information Manager Historian. In addition, ActiveFactory software enables individuals at all levels of an organisation to easily access plant and process data using simple point and click dialogs. ActiveFactory clients can disseminate information across a network, intranet or the Internet.
Using corporate information highways, ActiveFactory software analyses trending data over time, performs numerical data analysis using Microsoft® Excel, offers comprehensive data reporting using Microsoft Word, and provides ad-hoc access to historical and real-time information on the plant floor.
Improving plant performance through better Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence can be greatly accelerated through the use of a system for managing plant performance. This often takes the form of an
integrated plant information system that links real-time and historical plant data to plant decision makers and their support personnel.
ActiveFactory client applications include:
Trend…powerful data analysis tool
A desktop tool that presents all types of plant data in a graphical format.
Query…easy access to all your plant data
Every user has data requirements and they are constantly changing. Though routine reports cover a wide range of needs, special reports are always a requirement.
Workbook and report
ActiveFactory Workbook is a Microsoft Excel Add-in that provides plant data connectivity.
Custom application development
Manufacturing and industrial operations are generally custom designed for their purpose. Most plants have customized control systems and industrial applications to optimize the performance of the facility.
Web Server…maximize return on information
Creating data reports and plots alone are not enough. Information becomes valuable to the enterprise when it is shared. Decisions can be made more quickly when everyone involved sees the same information.
