Manuvis adds energy management to its SaaS offering

Software can monitor energy use on an individual machine basis, as well as capture overall energy use.

10/21/2009


Manuvis Corp., maker of event-driven, real-time enterprise manufacturing intelligence software, has added energy management functionality to its FactoryMRI(R) Saas offering. This functionality adds the ability to monitor energy use on an individual machine basis, as well as capture overall energy use. It also provides actionable information and metrics to management.

"With the Lean movement continuing, people are looking to move past the low hanging fruit and tap into more potential cost savings," said David Scott, CEO. "With the increase and volatility of energy costs, we are seeing a great opportunity for manufacturers to take another step forward in operating efficiency."

According to Scott, one FactoryMRI user recently discovered the value of the functionality when preparing for an EPA audit. When the maintenance manager was informed of the audit, he asked the Manuvis team if they could help. Instead of using the traditional method of compiling manual data, a couple of mouse clicks provided an accurate report.

FactoryMRI leverages automatic data collection and analysis to present actionable information to management and operators. When utilized for decision-making, the outcomes are increased performance and lower operating costs. FactoryMRI's service oriented architecture was built with and operates on Progress Software's OpenEdge business application platform.
