EC: FactoryTalk Historian Site Edition
Software - application software: Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk Historian Site Edition. The new version of FactoryTalk Historian Site Edition (SE) software combines access to the unified production model and Web-based reporting of FactoryTalk VantagePoint software to aggregate historical and real-time data and provide more consistent, insightful reports, dashboards and key performance indicators. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.
Manufacturers are looking for immediate access to real-time data that they can turn into insightful information that's visible and useful to people at every level of the organization. By combining the historical data gathered from FactoryTalk Historian SE software, with the access to real-time data from other plantfloor data sources with FactoryTalk VantagePoint, manufacturers have the ability to create relevant reports, dashboards, and KPIs so they can evaluate manufacturing problems before they impact the bottom line. FactoryTalk Historian SE software collects, stores, analyzes, and visualizes production data using powerful data capture and storage engines that can be used within process, discrete, and hybrid environments.
The FactoryTalk VantagePoint application, in turn, leverages a unified production model to provide access to virtually all plant data sources, and produces Web-based reports such as dashboards, trends, and Microsoft Excel reports. Operators, engineers, supervisors, management, and executives throughout the plant can use these reports to manage cost, quality, production, assets, and resources more effectively. Combining FactoryTalk Historian SE software and FactoryTalk VantagePoint software results in a manufacturing intelligence solution that turns production data into actionable information. Access to this information empowers users at all levels of an organization to make informed decisions based on a more accurate and comprehensive view of the plant.
