Plant Historians can help your facility with common issues such as:
Troubleshooting: When something goes wrong, review the data easily to determine the issue and get back online quickly.
Tracking Production Metrics: Use dashboarding to report standard metrics, such as production amounts, easily and automatically.
Efficiency & Optimization: Review trends in data to compare efficiency between shifts or against a benchmark parameter. Similarly, isolate high-performing areas to replicate best practices across shifts.
Analyzing Trial Runs: When developing new products or changing your process, track and analyze key metrics to refine your process quickly with limited waste.
Recalls and Lot Tracing: In the event of a contamination or recall, you will have all the data at your fingertips to isolate the issue and limit your exposed product.
Prediction: Historical data combined with real-time operating data can be used for accurate predictions of how equipment and processes will perform in the future. The power of prediction enables timely decision making to reduce or eliminate future upsets.
Our process starts with an in-depth discussion of your current systems, your needs, and your goals. Then, our Team will build the system architecture: hardware and software planning, server build, network connectivity, tag collection lists, and asset hierarchies. We have experience with all major commercial off-the-shelf systems, or we can design historians that meet the site-specific requirements. Next, we will configure the interfaces to the control systems, laboratory (LMS) and user entry systems, maintenance systems (CMMS), and ERP systems. Finally, we will layer in the user applications such as process screens, alerts, dashboards, batch tools, and other advanced software applications.
With Hargrove, you get the right experience from the right people in system integration working alongside you to meet and exceed your expectations. Working together as one team – that’s Hargrove.
