Software - Diagnostics: FactoryTalk VantagePoint Energy software helps companies consolidate information into reports to help better visualize their energy consumption in ways that can reduce time and effort associated with regulatory compliance, cut operating costs, and maximize profits. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice award winner.Manufacturing plants consume more than one-third of the global energy used annually, but many companies do not have consolidated information on the day-to-day energy consumption within their plants. FactoryTalk VantagePoint Energy software helps plant and operations managers view disparate data sources consolidated into role-based dashboards and KPIs. For example, a dashboard might show resource consumption in relation to specific units, lines and machines to set baselines and better track variations for their entire operation—whether a single plant or a global production infrastructure.

FactoryTalk VantagePoint Energy software is available as a bundle that includes FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI software plus energy-specific models, charts, trends, dashboards and analysis tools to simplify visibility to energy data. For current FactoryTalk VantagePoint users, an energy add-on can be purchased separately. With this application, users can aggregate metered energy-consumption data with production assets throughout the organization to start monitoring energy utilization.

Once energy utilization is better understood, users can explore behavioral changes to improve energy efficiency and reduce cost. Energy information from the asset level can be correlated with data from third-party control, process and business systems into one application, to not only improve energy efficiency but also overall production efficiency and revenue.

Plant managers and business leaders can easily access energy data, such as historical energy-cost trends or energy costs over time for a specific machine, line, plant or the entire enterprise via a Web browser. FactoryTalk VantagePoint software users can now add energy intelligence to their manufacturing intelligence strategy, to access the data necessary to make better decisions to optimize energy consumption, correlate energy usage, determine cost to production, negotiate energy rates, and improve efficiency.
