FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI — FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI software helps empower users at every level of an enterprise with information from Web-based dashboards and reports on key performance indicators from multiple manufacturing and business data sources. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI software connects to multiple data sources, real-time, historical, relational, and transactional, to create a single resource that can access, aggregate, and correlate information via a Web browser. The new application is based on a unified production model (UPM) that provides a real-world view of seemingly disparate manufacturing data and gives a context for relationships among equipment, product, materials and people. The UPM organizes various manufacturing and enterprise data using commonly referenced business terms, like equipment, batches, and manufacturing lots. Access to this information enables manufacturers to better monitor and manage productivity in real time, and make more informed decisions about business priorities, such as product quality, equipment utilization, and global supply-chain management to help reduce costs. This application can be used to address single or multiple manufacturing problems, on one manufacturing line or across a global enterprise. In addition, the FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI software can be used to address specific manufacturing needs, like downtime reporting, status tracking, or multiple control-system reporting. This e-business intelligence software allows users to report data through a variety of tools, including Microsoft Excel, Trend, and Dashboard Builder, and view it through the FactoryTalk VantagePoint software portal, Microsoft SharePoint, and other portals. The software also can be bundled with services to provide a complete solution to satisfy unique vertical market needs.
