Emerson Process Management has introduced Syncade, a smart operations suite designed to improve plant efficiency, productivity and compliance.

The modular, scalable Syncade suite extends the value of PlantWeb digital plant architecture by integrating real-time intelligent plant-floor data with procedural, off-line and transactional plant business processes, decisions and asset management.

The Smart Operations Management suite is a replacement for the traditional client-server, program-intense manufacturing execution systems (MES) software of the past decade.

The Syncade suite uses the modular, scalable Microsoft.NET framework-based software to deliver ISA95 Level 3 standards-based functionality.

Syncade Smart Operations Management suite is a family of software modules that provides easy, flexible, integrated solutions in four performance enhancing, functional areas: resource management, operations optimisation, integrated information, and quality and compliance.

Optimising material conversion and eliminating the use of unsuitable material can reduce waste and rework.

Scheduling, verifying and tracking proper equipment use can increase throughput.

Improving operator productivity by guiding manual processes and enabling access to support documents can increase performance.

Ensuring personnel have the proper skills, training and qualifications needed to effectively perform their jobs can minimise variability, improve company morale and support the fact that people are your greatest asset.

Improving plant workflow processes can significantly impact plant performance.

Order management, material weighing/addition/traceability status, equipment state/cleaning/calibration tracking, product sampling and adjustment, electronic procedural control and data collection are examples of workflow processes critical to optimising operations.

The Syncade suite allows these diverse plant functions to be optimally coordinated, with easy access to information that impacts plant performance.

Proper documentation ensures compliance with regulatory requirements and enables better user decisions by providing timely, ‘point-of-use’ information.

Too often, documentation can be a hindrance due to overwhelming volume, difficult accessibility, and missing information.

Syncade suite eliminates these problems by providing effective data and document management throughout the lifecycle of a document, including online storage, change control, automatic routing, version management, and archived records management.

Syncade software helps businesses turn documents into management assets, rather than organisational burdens.

Access to the right data at the right time enables better decisions.

Integrating smart, real-time plant-floor data with business practices helps the organisation work smarter.

By coordinating ‘handshaking’ functions between existing plant systems and electronically guiding manual processes, plant operations can be streamlined.

Syncade suite takes advantage of industry standards to enable easy and maintainable ‘plug-and-play’ integration with other systems that impact on operations performance.

Modularity and scalability mean flexibility and focus.

Process manufacturing personnel and Emerson experts can analyse operations and then prioritise improvement projects, choose the appropriate standards-based modules, and begin implementation.

It is not necessary to design and implement an entire infrastructure.

A further advantage of scalability is that modules can support a small number of users at start-up with additional users being added as needed.

After initial process improvements are realised, additional modules can be implemented as time and budget permits.
