ABB has released a new version of its ABB Ability Manufacturing Operations Management software, which offers a broad suite of industrial applications to give operators, supervisors and plant managers visibility and data insights.
New features in the enhanced manufacturing operations management platform include an enhanced user experience based on new HTML 5 web client; a new smart interactive dashboard application that provides greater visibility and collaboration, a new statistical process control (SPC) application, to determine if each process is in a state of control and a new Batch Compare application for advanced batch analysis.
The software is designed to simplify production management by enabling performance monitoring, downtime management and maintenance support, as well as providing statistical production analysis tools. It provides solutions and tools to facilitate the collection, consolidation and distribution of production, quality and energy information via the plant’s web-based reports, trends and graphs.
A new self-service dashboard application promotes increased collaboration, providing visibility from shop floor to top floor and spanning IT and OT environments. It increases data connectivity to all apps and modules within the MOM suite, combining historic and manufacturing data and providing the user with improved customization capabilities.
Dashboards can be shared amongst users, further promoting collaboration between teams. Trends and events are displayed together, which enables customers to identify issues and opportunities enabling informed and timely decisions.
