Sept. 9, 2015 – Thanks to a new partnership with DPSI, Syscon-PlantStar now offers maintenance management solutions that complement PlantStar’s manufacturing execution systems.
Even though both PlantStar and DPSI have multi-tiered software programs, the sharing of information is expected to be will be seamless and intuitive, says Gary Benedix, vice president at PlantStar. In a plastics facility, for example, the PlantStar program will gather a machine’s total run hours, the number of cycles on a mold/tool, and downtime tracking by reason and pass it to the DPSI system for preventive maintenance planning. The ability to link real-time machine data with a preventive maintenance program offers huge benefits to manufacturers that want to stay competitive, he adds.
