Our vertical integration strategy links the ERP with your automation system to produce a single transaction based interface between the Business Systems and the Plant Floor. The horizontal strategy of MES provides you with an integration that links the different plant areas or even plants of your enterprise. By using current and accurate data, the system guides, initiates, responds to, and reports on plant activities as they occur. Your plant will reduce the time invested in identifying failures and at the same time reduce the total manufacturing cycle time. MES Solutions eliminate manual processes and generate automatic reports. Accurate and up to date information on the status of production, facilitates the decision making process and helps management reduce and trace the costs associated to each product. MES Solutions are the ultimate tool to achieve maximum overall plant effectiveness, reduce costs, and increase the quality of your product.

Automation Solutions are present at the PC and PLC level and consist of Integrated Automation Systems + Application Standard + User Software (check consistency of terms with graph). Through our standardization service you select the appropriate Integrated Automation System for your plant and receive the application standard. The remaining task is the engineering and validation of the User Software. The percentage of User Software to be engineered and validated depends on your degree of standardization.

Change Management for Disconnected and Remote Assets

AutoSave supports non-networked devices by allowing you to make changes to programs in the field then analyze and sync all changes to the server back at the office.

• View a history of changes performed on each device
• Undo changes in the field with a simple button push
• Compare the program running in the device to the program on the engineer’s laptop
• Copy programs to create new programs in the field

In the office, the Field Technician identifies programs of interest and AutoSave downloads copies to the engineer’s laptop using the AutoSave Program Manager tool.

Use the AutoSave Client for Non-Networked Devices to make changes to the program.

Compare local files with server and send/receive updates.
