The customer is a leading company in the design and manufacturing of packaging for commercial products with multiple sites across the US.
They wanted to start collecting OEE and downtime data from all sites and have it available in real time, both locally and from a central location.
Since all sites are of two different types, the customer wanted ATS to develop a pilot solution per site type that could easily extend to the remaining sites.
ATS completed a pilot project where two template projects were developed - one per site type - with all resources such as OEE monitoring, downtime management, dashboards, operator screen, charts, reports, and system configuration. With the project inheritance properties available in Ignition 8, ATS created a child project on each site, which inherits all resources from the template project while allowing the development of custom screens, reports, etc.
ATS also developed an enterprise project where authorized users have an overview of all sites, with drill down options to each line on any site.
In addition to the Ignition and Sepasoft work, ATS also helped the customer with the integration of legacy controllers and the installation of sensors for the MES counters.
