Role-based manufacturing apps for real-time operations
PTC’s (NASDAQ: PTC) ThingWorx role-based manufacturing apps are designed to deploy and provide industrial companies with real-time operational intelligence to make more proactive and faster decisions. The ThingWorx manufacturing apps unify data from enterprise business systems and the sensored physical world, and are designed to deliver user information and real-time insight in context for individual roles. The new manufacturing apps help simplify digital transformation, are fast to deploy, and allow for codeless app extensibility for ongoing rapid innovation. The ThingWorx manufacturing starter apps will be available via a free download and can be deployed in production in under one hour.
The ThingWorx manufacturing apps include:
ThingWorx Controls Advisor gives controls engineers the ability to connect to and remotely visualize data from virtually any programmable logic controller (PLC), IoT gateway or connected asset. It enables them to monitor and troubleshoot machine connectivity and provides instant notification of data communication errors that may cause the loss of critical production data. With proactive issue identification and rapid trending and troubleshooting, manufacturers can improve data quality and reliability and reduce unplanned downtime.
ThingWorx Asset Advisor provides real-time visibility into the health and status of critical assets. The app alerts maintenance/service technicians to potential problems that may impact unplanned downtime and optimize maintenance execution. It remotely monitors and detects anomalies across various assets and allows users to understand asset performance and minimize unplanned downtime. Maintenance and service technicians can make better informed, faster decisions with unified real-time connectivity across critical production assets and take corrective action before problems impact production.
ThingWorx Production Advisor unifies disparate sources of operational and business data. With the ThingWorx Production Advisor app, production managers have real-time visibility into production status and critical key performance indicators (KPIs) such as availability, performance, quality and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). The app also enables plant managers to monitor the real-time operational performance of the factory—all lines, all assets, with up-to-the-minute production status and performance KPIs.
