How Superior Visibility Reduces Downtime and Optimizes Processes in Industrial Automation


Who changed the code? Was there even a code change?

When production stalls, it often leads to a blame game between software and hardware, code and machinery, engineers and operators. When even one hour of downtime can cost millions of dollars, just being able to determine whether or not a code change was made can have a dramatic impact on recovery speed.

Join us to discover the power of instant, actionable visibility into your code and the programs running on your machines. Modern toolsets available today can provide game-changing version control, automated backups of all running machines and devices, and the ability to rapidly visualize and understand all code changes. These capabilities deliver greater control over your operations, helping eliminate the guesswork and firefighting that drain efficiency and empower your teams to avoid downtime and recover quickly when it occurs.

With unparalleled visibility into your industrial automation projects, you can:

  • Reduce downtime: fast and easy troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Increase reliability and safety: improve code quality, identify potential issues prior to deployment
  • Gain a competitive advantage: respond more quickly to production demands and shifting requirements
