PROXIA process data module – perfect visualisation for maintenance

Process data capture – visualise process data to stabilise processes

In this era of Industry 4.0, data plays an ever greater role. This means for example: “Data is the oil of tomorrow” or “the data of today forms the basis for the decisions of tomorrow”. But which types of data are collected in a production environment? When we talk about production data acquisition and machine data acquisition, this often refers to the basis for an actual recalculation and the option of assessing a production facility with a view to its performance. An example of this is overall equipment effectiveness (GAE/OEE). Here, system downtimes manifest themselves in the form of reduced availability, production time deviations in the form of reduced performance, and scrap in the form of a falling quality rate.

In today’s modern production environment, machine and production data, as well as process data, offers plenty of potential for process optimization. The PROXIA process data module stores, uses and visualizes temperatures, pressures or speeds, and therefore provides another building block for the smart factory.

PROXIA Process Data Module – functions and features

  • The PROXIA Process Data Module securely stores all relevant process parameters. It does not matter whether the data is stored in a central location or filed in shared databases. This data pool allows a long periods to be analysed and, for example, trends to be detected. The information gained is not only an important resource for production staff, but this data also offers an additional aid to troubleshooting in maintenance, and in optimising production facilities. Process data also provides an additional quality assurance option when determining root causes if quality deviations occur.

  • The importance of data is increasingly a factor in Industry 4.0. The focus is on the issue of data in the right place at the right time. Taking the opportunity of moving this information from the process level to a centrally accessible location, creates additional options to enhance value. The relevant telemetry data, e.g. temperatures, pressure or speeds can be monitored online at any time using the PROXIA Process Data Module. The key factor here is that monitoring can not only be performed at permanent work stations or PCs, but also on mobile terminals.

    PROXIA Product Process-data-module example 1
  • Many modern systems provide the option of supplying process data for maintenance. However, almost all providers bring their own visualisation solutions to the table. This makes it almost impossible to display telemetry data from various systems in a concise and consistent way. The visualisation level of the PROXIA process data module is able to show any type of process data such as pressure, flow rates or vibration patterns in the form of a graph. For example then, deviations from the specified process can be recognised quickly through permanent visualisation of the relevant process parameters. This creates the option to adjust the process when running, also helping to improve product quality and reducing the scrap rate. A cutting-edge and user-friendly interface is available to the maintenance staff to monitor all their systems based on the captured telemetry data.

  • In maintenance, this process data offers an additional aid to troubleshooting, and in optimising production facilities. In the event that the measurements deviates from the specifications, push notification concepts such as SMS, mail, RSS or automated generation of maintenance reports are made available. Unscheduled downtime can therefore be reduced and scheduled downtimes moved to less critical time windows. Process data also provides an additional quality assurance option when determining root causes if quality deviations occur.

  • A key source of information lies deep in system and machine controllers: Process data - this is data which documents the actual parameters with which a process is performed. Normally, this data is used by plant controllers to control the process. This information, e.g. temperatures, pressures or speeds, remains mostly in the controllers and is not used for other tasks. Tapping into this “data pot” creates additional options to increase value. For example therefore, deviations from the specified process can be quickly detected by permanent visualisation of the relevant process parameters, which provides additional assistance in troubleshooting and optimisation of production equipment.
