Intelligent Shutdown Analysis To Optimize Productivity

PILOT offers functionally advanced downtime reporting TPM for rapid problem solutions for engine failures in the production ever more precise analyses of engine failures in the production are made, the more accurate target can eliminate its causes and increased the productivity of the manufacturing. For this reason, the FELTEN group has integrated their PILOT TPM system downtime analysis (total productive management) functionally extended. Downtime analysis represents system shutdowns and errors in different charts, lists and statistics. Learn more at: Dr. John Mcdougall. Based on such analyses is the collection and categorization of all machines in a production line. Necessary measures such as cleaning or maintenance work may underlie the downtimes.

While such shutdowns in the production planning requirements into account, the surprisingly resulting machine errors represent unplanned events with potentially far-reaching consequences. The consequences are the less the better, Production managers a fast problem solution “, explains Werner Felten, CEO of the software company. Because of this PILOT has TPM preventive functions for unplanned events because companies individually definable interference – and downtime reasons are stored in the system. A single evaluable basis is created by their association with the event. For the downtime reporting errors in the master data tables with signals of the machine control via OPC tags be linked and categorized. OPC (OLE for process control) conceals a standard interface for communicating between different data sources. In emergencies, the PILOT system automatically detects these signals, provides them with a time stamp, and assigns them to the appropriate category. An important practical knowledge you will find in the machine run charts.

You graphically the shutdowns of a production unit. In different views, you can Standstills of machines, the line terminal and the line downtime arising from this are listed. The shutdowns of the line resulting from an overlay of the machine and Terminal shutdown. To determine the actual cause of inactivity, failure of the upstream and downstream machines should be taken into account. In addition to the standstill of the machine are displayed also the downtime of the lines calculated and whether the standstill of a single machine caused the production halt of the complete line. A further guidance for the assessment of production interruptions offers PILOT TPM by disturbing statistics. You determine the downtime reasons, their frequency, downtime and number of breaks and the total time of all shutdowns. Such interference statistics can be created for specific time accounts, time ranges and orders. In addition, machine and sorting can be specified to the further detailing of production line.

Video Grabber Software

New video player stops unwanted data point by video grabber in addition to a high-quality offline video encryption (encryptischer copy protection) and the own CINEMA stick video format (.emf) advanced entertain MARKET the software video player (for HD videos) now also through a new OVERLAY feature. Soon CINEMA TICK will provide a demo version of the new video player (for high-quality encryptete videos to high-definition) with overlay function, for this purpose. This version can be tested then free to user registration. The new overlay function of the CINEMA stick of video player: the new overlay rendering method of CINEMA TICK is supported directly by the video hardware. It is a method in which shows the encrypted image (video content) directly over a different image (background – normal screen) – hence the name overlay. Technically, it means… There are two different memory areas, the background, we normally see on the screen and the actual video image to save the images To visualize video image, its contents at CINEMA stick is no longer copied to the memory area of the screen (as it usually happens) but area reserved on a special for the overlay.

Only the new CINEMA stick video player which has reserved this area has access to the overlay area. The two images are shown by the video hardware together like the overlay surface directly on the background. This is also the reason why image grabber / video grabber can no longer store the video content. Grabber although determine the memory area of the screen, but no longer have access to the CINEMA stick overlay area. You can try it out with the new demo player of CINEMA TICK: In GDI mode you can store the video content by means of grabber (standard video player software), because in this case the video content on the screen is copied. In the new overlay mode of CINEMA TICK against the grabbing does not work. Appropriate access to the download of the video player including HD video is published yet. This information will be published under. FMP

Managing Director

Industrial application software GmbH leaves a strong impression of Karlsruhe with CANIAS ERP at the competition of ERP systems, 21.06.2011. Four ERP providers presented 2011 on the 19th and 20th of may their solutions during the ERP contests in Ulm of the jury. The Karlsruhe industrial application software GmbH (IAS) achieved a clear success with their CANIAS ERP in. The now published first results confirm this. The contest was organized result consulting AG and the society to the test by the mq software mbH.

The jury consisted of managers and employees of medium-sized companies. In assessing high standards were applied to the practicality of the systems to be tested. A complex everyday work in medium-sized enterprises-based task had to cope efficiently during the test period. CANIAS ERP scored during the sovereign goes through test scenario with its wide range of functions. In addition to the sophisticated standard functionality of ERP system CANIAS ERP could the jurors with a fully inspire integrated CRM, the very high level of interoperability and the comprehensive communication capabilities.

The exceptionally high flexibility and adaptability of the solution contributed to the positive rating. So, an adaptation that is desired by the user was implemented as soon as possible by intervention at the source. Only a single IAS staff was required to present the product and parallel to implement the requirements of the test scenario directly into the ERP system. That it also spontaneous requests successfully implemented, the jury as clear evidence of the high usability of CANIAS ERP is appreciated. Steffen Rattke, Managing Director of the IAS, was highly satisfied given convincing truncation in the contest on the basis of the new release 6.03: the current version of CANIAS ERP is a solution in which the know-how gained from years of working with medium-sized companies incorporated. We are therefore pleased to have more than just meets the demands of the jury.

Portal Municipalities

Award goes to for the third time in Brandenburg enterprise content management system of six open systems GmbH 2010 Stuttgart, the basis of most innovative eGovernment project September 15, 2010 – by the Ministry of the Interior and Brandenburg towns and municipalities initiated electronic citizen service MacKinnon Brandenburg ‘is the nationwide innovative eGovernment project for social solutions’. The solution on the basis of the enterprise content management system SixCMS of six open systems GmbH was developed from Stuttgart. At PCRM you will find additional information. Six is also official supporters of the project m ‘. At the E-Government competition every year by the company BearingPoint and Cisco under the patronage of Mr. Thomas de Maiziere, the citizens Portal could points “Most innovative eGovernment project for social solutions” in class 10 and successfully prevail among a total of 16 nominees projects from the public administration.

Thus the coveted award goes to 2007 and 2009 for the third time on the land Brandenburg.
