Wonderware has announced the latest release of Performance Software 3.5, an integrated module of the Wonderware MES and supervisory software.

Performance Software 3.5 features an ArchestrA-based configuration and visualisation, providing simple set up for a single line, and capable of supporting enterprise-level asset performance strategies.

The software is suitable for manufacturers that require a comprehensive equipment downtime and efficiency tracking solution that can be deployed across multiple plants.

Performance Software 3.5 is more than a point solution for downtime and OEE tracking.

It is part of a unified supervisory and manufacturing execution system (MES), which can evolve as a customer’s MES requirements grow.

‘When Cimnet was acquired, a key part of the strategy was to integrate the Cimnet Factelligence MES functionality with the Wonderware System Platform to unlock ArchestrA’s scalability and extensibility,’ said Jim Frider, marketing manager for Wonderware.

‘This has now been accomplished with Performance Software 3.5.

‘As part of this release, Wonderware is providing software migration tools and commercial upgrade paths to customers who have utilised previous Wonderware OEE offerings such as DT Analyst and Equipment Performance Module.’ As part of Performance Software 3.5, Wonderware includes a Utilisation Capability Object, which uses the scalability and extensibility of the Wonderware System Platform.

Complete equipment monitoring strategies can be configured using this application object, which can then be deployed in multiple instances for new applications.

Monitoring strategies can be standardised to enable effective line comparisons.

In addition, new ArchestrA graphic templates developed for downtime, OEE and production help reduce system development and enable complete customisation of KPI (Key Performance Indicator) graphic displays within the Intouch 10.0 HMI (human machine interface) environment.

These ArchestrA graphics can be deployed to existing Intouch 10.0 applications.

Enhanced .Net controls also are built into Performance Software 3.5 to provide operators with an interactive display capability.

Using these controls, operators can gain insight into real-time equipment performance and provide structured feedback concerning specific equipment events.

Extensive data filtering capabilities help ensure that operators are only seeing the information they need to drive improved asset utilisation.

Timely reporting of equipment downtime and efficiency performance is accomplished using the Wonderware Information Server component.

The Information Server software provides web-based reporting and data visualisation and extends the development of report templates based on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services.
