Schneider Electric™, the global specialist in energy management and automation, in its efforts to drive Innovation At Every Level in Process Industries, has launched a new Software as a Service offer — EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor (EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor). An integrated online platform and management tool for overseeing calibration records and regulatory status, EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor offers an automated, digitized process for easy collection and retrieval of critical process data – from shop floor to top floor -when and where required.
Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman & CEO of Schneider Electric said: “The extensive digitization of industries globally is demanding highly connected solutions that deliver new capabilities to control industrial operations enterprise-wide, from the edge to the core. Customers are also demanding a new breed of applications and software that deliver real-time intelligence to the right decision-makers at the right time.
“To meet this growing demand, Schneider Electric is launching a new wave of digitized and connected technologies designed to help reshape energy management and automation. EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor is one of our flagship field services solutions. This new cloud-based offer will enable process industries to reduce error-prone, paper driven processes by automating their instrument compliance procedures and planning – driving operations that are more safe, efficient, connected, reliable and sustainable.”
Leveraging the online platform, EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor is a planning and scheduling tool that enables more efficient management of equipment and staff; meanwhile, the EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor eCAT™ tablet application improves calibration process efficiency with a secure, mobile-compatible tool that eliminates the drawbacks of paper-based records systems.
Clemens Blum, Schneider Electric Executive Vice President said: “Cloud based software services have revolutionised everything from taxi hire, to IT provision, Finance and HR. Industrial Automation is next and Schneider Electric is following a path of innovation to create a better connected, more flexible, safer and efficient use of industrial processes. EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor is a great example of this as it connects service providers and their end user customers, digitising the provision of compliance management from planning to audit; and from any connected smart phone, PC or tablet.”
Eurotherm by Schneider-Electric have first hand experience where major non-conformance of calibration records nearly cost one of their customers the loss of two contracts worth multi-millions. The EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor service event scheduling tools ensure no compliance tests are missed, which helps optimise productivity and deliver trouble free audits.
Digital compliance management is the future of all compliance management, EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor is applicable to any regulated industry that requires periodic testing to prove and maintain industry standards. There will be continuous development of EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor offerings to add further compliance tests and additional applications for use in regulated industries such as Heat Treatment for Aerospace and Automotive, Life Sciences, Healthcare, and Food & Beverage. In time EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor will be available on any device and operating system anywhere in the world.
“The EcoStruxure Manufacturing Compliance Advisor tools are completely scalable and relevant to small manufacturing and large, multi-site businesses,” says Christopher Ashworth, VP & Managing Director, Eurotherm by Schneider-Electric.
“They offer a secure, intelligent, and more efficient way of handling plant-wide process information, adding value to a process by enabling users to convert data quickly into the information required – and that is what the Industrial Internet of Things is all about.”
