FactoryTalk VantagePoint 4.0 software from Rockwell Automation is designed to simplify the end-user experience, include connectivity to additional Rockwell Automation products, and provide native integration to Microsoft SharePoint 2010. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.FactoryTalk VantagePoint 4.0 software from Rockwell Automation includes enhanced connectors, configuration and reporting tools to significantly reduce the time, complexity and cost of developing meaningful reports, visualization, and analytics for manufacturing operations and enhance performance for manufacturing intelligence applications. The latest version is designed to simplify the end-user experience, include connectivity to additional Rockwell Automation products, and provide native integration to Microsoft SharePoint 2010. This brings an unprecedented opportunity to expose plant-floor data to the enterprise and many other capabilities like business intelligence, collaboration, and communications typically not found in a real-time manufacturing operation.  

Enhanced connectors and preconfigured reporting content for Logix programmable automation controllers, FactoryTalk Historian, FactoryTalk Metrics, and FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix make setting up reporting around common equipment types faster and easier. This new release also enables production intelligence for PlantPAx process automation system customers by providing prebuilt reports and a visual model of the process library and also includes direct connectivity to third-party historians and control systems.

Users can create reports using common tools, such as Microsoft Excel, and view data through the FactoryTalk VantagePoint portal or Microsoft SharePoint, leveraging a long list of Web parts, scorecards, business intelligence and other collaboration tools. Users can also address specific manufacturing needs, including downtime reporting, status tracking and multiple control-system reporting, and work intuitively and interactively with reports and dashboards to view key performance indicators that enable data-driven decision making.

The application is based on a unified production model (UPM) that aggregates disparate manufacturing data and gives context for relationships among equipment, product, materials, and people. FactoryTalk VantagePoint helps thousands of leading manufacturers monitor and manage productivity in real time to drive plantwide optimization and make more insightful decisions about business priorities from product quality to equipment utilization to help reduce costs.
