#SPS11 Dynamic reporting in process or energy management

COPA-DATA is to present their zenon Analyzer to the public for the first time

COPA-DATA will present its new product for dynamic reporting, the zenon Analyzer, for the first time at the SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011 trade fair. The software is designed to display all the vital information from manufacturing processes or energy management with a clear overview and in graphical form, so that comprehensive evaluations of operating efficiency can be carried out. The zenon Analyzer is useful for production and factory managers, as well as financial controllers and company management.

The zenon Analyzer can make use of both real-time data and historic data from many different sources for evaluation

Volatile prices of raw materials and equipment, fluctuating demand and intense cost pressures in the global markets make it necessary for companies to be highly adaptable in their production in order to respond to market pressures, meet market requirements and to continually improve efficiency and effectiveness.

“As a leading provider of HMI/SCADA solutions, COPA-DATA has many years of experience in industrial automation and is familiar with the requirements of different sectors and industries. With the zenon Analyzer, we are offering an innovative solution for Dynamic Production Reporting, which supports our customers optimally when monitoring their manufacturing processes. It also reveals any potential for optimizing consumption and production”, explains COPA-DATA CEO, Thomas Punzenberger.

Dynamic reporting with the zenon Analyzer
Dynamic Production Reporting analyzes all relevant data obtained from production. The reports generated provide those responsible for production and management with a comprehensive and transparent overview of previous activity as well as the current manufacturing situation. These reports use both real-time data and historical data for evaluations. Users can apply standardized, pre-defined templates to deploy the tool quickly and efficiently. There is also the capability to adapt the pre-defined reports or to define individual reports to precisely portray the company-specific requirements. The reports can also be used as a basis for quality control as well as adherence to compliance requirements.

Maximum performance, maximum flexibility
Companies can deploy the zenon Analyzer as either an independent and freely-configurable application or in conjunction with zenon as the HMI/SCADA solution. The software can be easily integrated into existing automation solutions or IT infrastructures – without adaptations or changes needing to be carried out on existing machines or equipment. The zenon Analyzer compiles the data from various machines, production stages and equipment consistently and provides all relevant information quickly and with a clear overview. As a result, users can view OEE and KPI figures, such as material use, downtimes, or energy consumption. Thanks to the management of user roles, it is also possible for different users or user groups to only receive the analyses and evaluations that are relevant to them.
