Industrial reporting system for discrete, continuous and hybrid processes
TechnoDoc is a system for automated reporting and data analysis, designed for industrial enterprises. It implements data consolidation from automated systems (DCS/MES/ERP) for detailed analysis. TechnoDoc allows to design reports for discrete, continuous and hybrid processes. It could be deployed as a part of WinCC OA project or as a standalone web-application.
TechnoDoc provides powerful and flexible templates constructor to design reports you need. It uses WYSIWYG web-components, which allows us to create forms with tables, charts and text in a few actions.
The system has a lot of drivers to collect data from enterprise automated systems. The driver is a program connecting to the source and collecting data. Out of the box it is available a set of drivers for industrial protocols (OPC, S7, XMLRPC), Databases (Oracle, MS SQL, MongoDB) and TXT/Excel/CSV files. There is a public API to develop custom drivers as well.
Calculated parameters can also be used. Prepared repository of aggregation functions implements typical calculation such as min, max, avg and many other functions. For more complicated calculations embedded C# compiler can be used. In case of need you can write and check scripts inside the report designer. This approach allows us to calculate the parameters of any complexity.
The System is able to monitor equipment states in real-time mode. It gives us the answers to the questions - "How long have equipment been working in different operation modes?" and "How often does equipment change operation modes?".
It allows us to know how many times the equipment was started and stopped, how long equipment had been working in limited work areas, etc. Prepared information makes it possible to calculate MTBF, MTTR and OEE indicators in reports.
This flexibility is achieved by the following steps:
Accounting of material and electricity balances is an important question for each industrial enterprise. The system allows us to prepare reliable information to find out the broken measuring devices on the plant for calibration and repair.
SMS-Automation group has rich experience in automating business and reporting workflow processes at energy and petrochemical enterprises.
This video shows how to create a new report with tables, charts, calculated parameters and signature in WinCC OA project by using TechnoDoc. The report will be generated on a regular basis every day and will be available for WinCC OA users for viewing and editing.
