Process Analytics dashboards are web-based visualizations that aggregate and combine process performance from a single or multiple plants into an intuitive diagnostic toolset for improved performance. They allow a shared and improved understanding of the manufacturing process as a combined whole, focusing operations staff on critical performance indicators, improving safety and squeezing more profit from plant operations. Teams and companies set integrated goals, track performance, perform root cause analysis and make refinements to further optimize the process. Our team creates the digital infrastructure, system design and custom programming required to create, consolidate and convert data into the actionable information that drives better bottom line performance at all levels of the organization.
Starting with the desired enterprise and plant performance metrics that drive your business, we undertake a systematic survey of your systems, interview your management team, and develop prototype wireframes of role based visualization dashboards. All stakeholders thereby have a both clear picture of the big picture, and their role-based window into it.
Next we design the physical infrastructure, specifying server hardware, database schema, network communication, and data flow. Our goal is to leave data where it resides natively and access data at run time on an as needed bases.
Engineers design SQL and OPC pipes to deliver the required data to the Process Analytics engine. We also determine if system modification or additional programming will be required to supply data to the analytics engine.
Programmers create linkage to all data sources, create custom dashboard displays and modify existing control system code to supply data to the process Analytics Engine. If necessary, we work with developers of Historian, Lab, Quality, MES, or ERP systems to create the appropriate data and pipes to drive the Process Analytics displays.
Comprehensive Factory Acceptance tests are conducted at NovaTech. Our team delivers, connects and configures the system at your site. The system is validated and started up. Users are trained on system usage paying special attention to the data provided for the various Roles within the enterprise.
As with any sophisticated system, routine analysis and maintenance will help ensure optimal performance. We provide detailed system and process diagnostic displays for system administrators, process engineers, and technicians. Whether debugging a field device or analyzing server performance, these tools play an important role in managing your digital infrastructure and the overall success of your operation.
