Additional Function Monitoring: In Detail

With the additional function Monitoring, you and your team can easily display the required information on different devices – on the production terminal, special monitors or on large screens. Embedded in the shop floor layout, you can keep an eye on the machine states, have valid, visualized order-related process data at hand or communicate important information, e.g. to the executive management or plant management.

You can design the display on the selected screens individually and depending on the location. The additional function Monitoring provides you with numerous standard screen masks already included in the standard scope of supply. With the help of the additional function View Designer, you can create further special displays, e.g. the summary of production performance of the past eight hours for your management meeting or current status and error messages for your quality assurance.

Ideally, information should not be restricted. It has to be available in real time and enable you to find out promptly what is relevant to each situation and to integrate additional information. With the additional function Monitoring, you can take advantage of those possibilities. Order-related information, current production data as well as individually designed reports are only a part of the display options. Additionally, you can visualize current KPIs graphically or in tabular form in a periodically alternating sequence. Other elements, such as web pages and news tickers, can also be easily displayed using the additional monitoring function, thus increasing transparency.

Defined principles of lean production include bringing together competencies and responsibilities, working in networks and synchronizing processes. This creates transparency. The transparency in turn results in a continuous improvement process. In order to participate in this process, the integration of all employees involved in production with the help of production-relevant information is essential. How the additional function Monitoring can successfully be implemented on the way to Industry 4.0 has been demonstrated by Diehls Controls in Wangen, Germany. The company was elected for the Factory of the Year Award in 2015. Learn more in our user report.
