Transform Your Plant With Actionable Intelligence
Real-Time Plant Floor Visibility
Using advanced sensors, Activplant MES collects equipment, product and process data directly from the automation level of the plant floor. Data collection is streamlined, and key information is displayed through a dynamic, user-friendly web interface that ensures the resulting intelligence from these complex interactions is available in real time.
Highly Customizable Functionality
Activplant MES is a fully configurable manufacturing execution system that will grow and expand along with your unique operations. Where out-of-the-box solutions come up short, Activplant is sure to fill in the gaps—no matter how complex or specialized your processes might be—and offer configurable views to rapidly access real-time or historical data.
Along with the systems configurable screen, data collection and calculation options, Activplant also maintains a highly flexible reporting structure. This allows you to determine which KPIs and data points are most relevant to your operations—ensuring you've got the data you need, exactly when you need it.
Activplant’s high degree of configurability means that operators do not need any development or programming skills to create or modify views and dashboards. With user-friendly principles prioritized in the solution’s design, your production team will not become dependent on IT in order to glean insights from different slices of data.
The heart of Activplant is ActivEssentials—a mature and robust platform that hosts all the business intelligence needed to run your manufacturing enterprise. ActivEssentials excels at collecting data from the automation level of the plant floor and provides standardized data modeling that can captures the complex interactions between all the machines and processes on the line.
Universal Factory Data Model (UFDM)
Within ActivEssentials lies a patented software data warehouse that makes it possible to accurately model nearly all manufacturing operations. Among its wide array of options, UFDM can measure asset states, incidents, identifiers, accumulators and events. Taken as a whole, it centralizes data from across the plant to give you a new level of visibility and understanding of your operations.
VPFlex provides you with a next-generation plant floor visualization module that extends the Activplant experience by enhancing operational visibility. This component offers a simple implementation, lightweight deployment and ease of access through multiple browsers or mobile devices. The multi-instance, multi-site capabilities enable an improved and consistent user experience in the real world.
VPWeb is the highly configurable end-user interface of Activplant with controls including parameters for state change, thresholds and dynamic formatting. Multiple view options allow users to choose from layout view (to create graphical representations of the plant, lines and assets), production view (to view tabular data showing various time periods within the plant), detailed view (to access a list of incidents), and trend view (to chart event-based data such as process variables).
ActivViewer allows the dashboard to display intelligence through Activplant views and reports with multiple slideshows and multiple player support. Support for multiple monitors and remote terminal sessions is also embedded into this functionality.
With ActivEssentials Reporting, companies can gain insight from reports that are pre-generated, cached or dynamically generated in addition to integrations with Microsoft software. The modern design allows for fully hyperlinked reports that include click-through navigation.
ActivEssentials Administration equips you with robust administration modules that increase control over all aspects of data collection.
Integration Toolkit (ITK)
Activplant’s Integration Toolkit helps you gain deep insight with plant data reports. This set of tools allows you to retrieve and integrate contextualized ActivEssentials data with third-party applications (including ERP, SCM or BI applications) to actively improve operational management.
Activplant Throughput Analyzer
Activplant Throughput Analyzer can help companies quickly build a historical performance record for every piece of equipment involved in the operation and then calculate statistical averages to expose chronic constraints. Throughput Analyzer users have experienced increases in throughput of 10% to 25%.
Reason Code Assignment (RCA)
With RCA, you benefit from a shop floor module that provides operators with the ability to enter reason codes and text about incidents. This also allows information to be captured in real-time (using a keyboard/mouse or touchscreen interface) and provides a valuable supplement to automated downtime, fault and stoppage data, which is key when determining root causes.
