Operational excellence and continuous improvement are driven by an optimal understanding of your production processes. Gaining the necessary insights into process parameters and production events is crucial to this understanding. However, getting to this level of insight is one of the biggest challenges that many production companies face today. Different machines - very old to brand new, from different vendors - generate data at high rates. Unfortunately, in many cases this data is not collected or, at best, collected locally without any further context. Together with Factry, you can unlock this trove of data, give it meaning, develop insights and formulate actions.
With the Factry Hub, you get insight out-of-the-box. We collect data from different sources (PLC, SCADA, LIMS, MES, ERP) and present it with the right context. Now, everyone in your company - from operator to plant manager - gets the answers they need.
Requiring nothing more than a web browser, our system allows you to create both historical trends for ad-hoc analysis and real-time dashboards for use throughout your factories. As there is no limit on the amount of users, you can display your data on as many screens as you want.
By using OPC-UA (Unified Architecture), the successor of the highly successful OPC communication protocol, it is possible to collect data from your existing installations, no matter the brand of PLC, without any custom programming.
Our open APIs allow for easy integration with nearly any other software. You can build new applications on top of the Factry Hub and easily connect it to your existing applications.
The Factry Hub is powered by high quality open source technologies, which we augmented with industry-specific functionality. This results in a fast, modern and cost-effective solution.
