Recipe/Product Data Management, Job Control
Manufacturing specifications, recipes and parameter sets are used for providing production set points in all kinds of industries and must be managed, monitored for changes in an powerful database and also be clearly displayed to ensure operational quality. Production orders are created based on these set points in order to provide plan able shop floor operation.
PM-CONTROL offers a flexible parameter control system for that purpose with UI components that can be seamlessly integrated into the WinCC operator screens. Set points can be transferred to WinCC, PCS7, WinCC flexible, WinCC V11/12 and also via OPC/DA even if a recipe contains set points for multiple of the above targets in combination.
The recording of recipe changes in an audit trail and the support of electronic signatures make PM-CONTROL the ideal solution in the regulated industry.
The integrated, centralized engineering library PM-LIBRARY allows the exchange and reuse of already configured components in multiple projects.
The latest product extensions like e.g. the graphical planning chart for the display of production orders, the rule based checking and calculation of recipe parameters and the possibility to even create a complete custom recipe editor are consequently following the trend to provide more ease of use, overview and flexibility.
Graphical order planning chart:
The relevant time frame can be controlled from the surrounding process screen ensuring that only the relevant planning horizon is shown. Irrelevant if that means displaying a day, a week, a month or only the next hour.
Rule based checking and calculation of recipe parameters:
Custom recipe editors:
