TSM control systems has developed a new plant-wide materials management and monitoring system, which also provides alarm monitoring, recipe control and overall plant visibility of all TSM blenders within a customers plant, whether it is by building, department, extrusion line, moulding machine. Each blender can be monitored and/or controlled from one central location, including current and historical production data, recipes, and more.
It allows an organization to measure and monitor the consumption of materials and monitor the total cost of materials used in the plant, through a very flexible reporting engine, which allows a plant supervisor to get exactly the information they want from the system, in a format which can be opened in any spreadsheet application, or erp system.
Plant-wide alarm and reporting is a standard feature of the TSM ics, ensuring production issues that occur at any time of day or night are available for later analysis. A full materials management system allows a supervisor to define materials, including costs per unit, codes, descriptions, etc. Recipes can then be built, using the materials database. For extra clarity and to avoid information overload, materials and recipes can be grouped on-screen.
Multi-threaded data logging from all machines to a sql database, and a fully customizable reporting engine ensure you can get the information you require from the system, while password protected security levels ensure only relevant members of your organization have access to the information they need to see. Utilizing an industry standard sql database for all information, ensures that the data is readily accessible for other systems such as erp systems, or any other third party systems.
