If you’re like us, you’ve likely been sent an email or told in meetings that part or much of your company staff will now work remotely. Testing for remote computer access and data volume traffic are ongoing as plans are being worked out for this new structure. For most companies, that means VPN or other remoting methods. Virtual meetings are replacing face-to-face ones and pseudo to full quarantines are on the rise. Phone conversations will go on but this won’t fully suffice to cover staffing roles. And besides, you’re talking to neighbors and wondering if you should take one more trip to the grocery store. In the midst of all the chaos, your company still needs you to not only do your job but to excel at it.

A lot goes into running a mill, plant or other process operation and a lot depends on running these operations efficiently. We can all agree that those in charge, Plant managers, process engineers and other relevant roles, have a lot on their plates and most of the time are working many hours to get everything done. Profitability and efficiency are dependent on a smooth operation. In order to run an efficient plant operation, one must be able to access to a large amount of information from the various assets and machinery that comprise the operation. Systems are installed to collect time relevant data in order to evaluate what is happening in the process. Successful operations depend on the ability to locate a problem if there is one, as well as access and manipulate data in the way that best suits the person who wants to see it in order to effectively problem solve. dataPARC simply put, is the very best data visualization and analysis software out there for the process industry.

The digital Transformation – everyone and everything is a part of it in some way. In the 20th century, breakthroughs in technology allowed for the ever-evolving computing machines that we now depend upon so totally, we rarely give them a second thought. Even before the advent of microprocessors and supercomputers, there were certain notable scientists and inventors who helped lay the groundwork for the technology that has since drastically reshaped every facet of modern life.

One of the challenges facing industrial process manufacturing is the growing number of data sources.

Examples of these data sources could be shift reports, process data historians, laboratory information management systems, or manufacturing execution systems. Being able to easily connect disparate data sources for decision-making is a key challenge in the age of IIOT. The lack of connection of these data sources and the creation of data silos is one version of the “big data” problem we hear about.

There are many different systems available for storing and analyzing manufacturing process data. A historian is a database application that provides a means of storing the data. Nowadays, historians are a commodity and sites routinely have multiple sources of data – everything from embedded historians in control systems to custom databases for specific purposes. The true value is in how the data is used, not where it is stored.

Most modern manufacturing processes are controlled and monitored by computer based control and data acquisition systems. This means that one of the primary ways that an operator interacts with a process is through computer display screens. These screens may simply passively display information, or they may be interactive, allowing an operator to select an object and make a change which will be then be relayed to the actual process. This interface where a person interacts with a display, and consequently the process, is called a Human-Machine Interface, or HMI.

Operating and troubleshooting a modern automated manufacturing process requires seeing and acting on hundreds or thousands of individual pieces of data. Digital control systems and plant-wide information systems have given us the ability to bring all of the data regarding plant status and performance to a single location. The challenge then is to create effective visual displays that allow the consumers of this information to easily understand and interact with the data.
