Factory visualization: iTAC Software AG enhances its MES with sphinx open online
MES provider and in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH launch a strategic partnership
Now iTAC can offer a professional solution for the efficient creation of management dashboards on the basis of the acquired operating, machine and quality data, and the software even enables visualization on mobile devices - without any programming requirements.
iTAC is manufacturer of a comprehensive manufacturing execution system for efficient production control and monitoring. The MES software has now been upgraded with the enterprise manufacturing intelligence (EMI) functions of sphinx open online, as one of the iTAC.MES.Suite’s AO (add pn) services. This function helps production managers to obtain and evaluate real-time data from the production process so that they can monitor the company’s performance and make any necessary optimizations.
Data transparency at all levels, from shop floor to top floor
The iTAC EMI service now incorporates the sphinx open online visualization system which is manufactured by its cooperation partner, in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH. It facilitates the real-time visualization of production processes as graphics and, like the iTAC.MES.Suite 7, it is based on Java Enterprise technology. This makes it ideal for operation on the iTAC.ARTES technology platform.
sphinx open online permits process monitoring and control via the internet. Its components are suitable for high quality visualizations and graphic engineering. The open interfaces of the Real Time Graphic Engine facilitate simple integration in various solutions.
“The EMI service for real-time factory visualization is a central MES function and one of our add-on services,” explained Dieter Meuser, CTO of iTAC Software AG. “sphinx open online is flexible and enables the rapid implementation of complex visualizations. The data obtained in the process can help to identify and remedy performance bottlenecks and quality fluctuations. The main benefits of using our EMI service for manufacturing enterprises are considerable efficiency improvements and cost reduction,” continued Meuser.
Siegfried Wagner, CEO of in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH added, “iTAC is a competent and innovative MES partner. We have been able to create an efficient solution that our customers are very impressed with through the integration of our sphinx open online product. We believe that it has significant future potential and look forward to a long and successful partnership.“
