Free of the usual custom interfaces or traditional integration costs, FactorySuite 2000 from Wonderware Corp. (Irvine, Calif.) appeared to be one of National Manufacturing Week's main attractions. FactorySuite 2000 is a more tightly integrated team of simultaneously upgradable automation software components for developing plant-floor automation applications.

FactorySuite 2000 is Microsoft Windows NT-based, provides a common-install procedure for its integrated application programs, and deploys a real-time relational database for its modules. These application modules in the client/server package apply Microsoft ActiveX for improved ease of use. The suite also includes the new 7.0 module of Wonderware's InTouch human-machine interface program, which serves as FactorySuite's common graphical user interface and client visualization portion, as well as an application explorer to enhance navigation among the integrated suite components.
