Factory visualization: iTAC Software AG enhances its MES with sphinx open online
MES provider and in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH launch a strategic partnership
Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) specialist, iTAC Software AG, and in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH have signed a partnership agreement. The cooperation with the sphinx open online visualization software manufacturer has enabled iTAC to add an Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI) service for factory visualization to the iTAC.MES.Suite 7’s AO service. 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
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.“
