Custom Manufacturing Apps

Build Unique Solutions for Unique Process Challenges

dataPARC is a flexible industrial analytics toolkit built upon the premise of easy data acquisition & integration. dataPARC’s core building blocks can be used to build data-driven solutions for your unique manufacturing challenges.

Core Features

The world’s top manufacturers use dataPARC to build the manufacturing analytics apps that move their businesses forward. What will you dream up?

IT/OT Data Integration

dataPARC is a plug & play solution that fits seamlessly into your current IT & process technology landscape. Built-in connections include drivers to real-time historians built on vendor provided API/SDK’s and industry standard templates (SQL, Web Services, etc.) to connect other key sources of data.

Real-Time Trending

Widely considered the best process trending application available, PARCview provides a combination of powerful features and ease of use to help troubleshoot and analyze data. drag & drop, dragging time-axis, time syncing of multi-trends, multi-trend templates.

Dashboards & HMI Displays

Create high-performance HMIs and enterprise dashboards to display your data. Create animated displays by associating object properties (size, color, background, foreground) with tag values. import existing dashboard graphics from PI, IP.21, and more.

Dynamic Alarms & Notifications

Use dataPARC’s rule-based alarm engine to build smart alarm definitions that reliably detect compliance events, including data loss, real time, and aggregate exceedance of regulation limits. Forward alarm event data to PARCview’s Logbook, and send notifications via email or SMS.

Control Charts

Build control charts (x-bar, range, standard deviation, etc.) from existing sources or PARCview formulas. Define simple min/max limits, choose from Western Electric Rules or custom logic. Limits can be managed natively in dataPARC or imported from a 3rd party database.

Custom Report Builder

PARCview’s highly configurable scripting and scheduling application can schedule and deliver recurring reports or other key data to management and other decision-makers. Create event-triggered reports, dashboard report delivery, & scheduled reports.

Advanced Modeling Tools

The PARCmodel component of dataPARC’s product group predicts plant quality variables in real-time, allowing for estimation of properties that are impractical or impossible to measure online.

Excel Add-In

Designed to automate common or tedious Excel tasks and make it easy to build reusable reports, PARCxla enables users to spend more time making important decisions and less time wrestling with data.

Contextualized Data (Asset Hub)

Add metadata to raw data streams. Attach descriptive labels such as a “flow rate,” “temperature,” or “vibration” so your data will make sense to users across your enterprise. Asset Hub is a convenient way to organize data intuitively and enable drill-down analyses.

Manual Data Entry Logger

PARCgraphics Designer’s form-based MDE tools offer a platform for constructing custom data entry screens. Enter data against a record from anywhere within the dataPARC environment, across multiple MDE pages, PCs, and locations.

Batch Analysis Tools

Arrange multiple batches by product into a comparison or consecutive view. Search for historical batches based on identifying information, such as batch ID or product label. Determine variability at any point in the batch using Run Trend analysis.

Grade Troubleshooting

PARCview’s Run Browser engine smartly determines when a grade or product was produced, and then loads those time periods in Trends or Chart displays. Filter grade runs by date or duration, and normalize data as needed. View runs consecutively over time, or overlayed and color-coded for comparison.

Highly Scalable Architecture

dataPARC is designed to optimize large amounts of data for high-speed real-time analytics performance. Connect all your systems data at a single site, or aggregate data across multiple sites for enterprise-wide visibility.

Single-Point API

dataPARC is a critical building block in your analytics landscape. Analyze, filter, & generate modeled values from your data with dataPARC, then use our single-point API to push the processed data to your current IT, OT, or business intelligence applications.

Futureproof Technology

Futureproof your analytics program. dataPARC’s API and open ecosystem philosophy ensure you’ll be able to connect to any new IT or OT platform you bring online.

First Class Support

Get top-tier support from the most experienced team in the industry. Receive speedy responses to technical questions from our US-based team, or access our online support portal and knowledgebase for community-provided solutions & training resources.

Flexible Deployment

dataPARC supports deployment on premises, in a customer management cloud environment (eg. Azure) or as a hybrid on-prem/cloud solution.

Define Your Limits

Use built in Western Electric Rules or custom logic to identify out-of-control points. User-defined color coding for rule violations provides operators with real-time feedback by highlighting special causes in Trend, Centerline, and Manual Data Entry displays.

Mobile Compatibility

Bring PARCview’s powerful data visualization tools to mobile phones and tablets, making it easy for key personnel to respond to downtime events or simply monitor plant conditions, regardless if they’re in meetings, travelling, or at home.

Strong Security

dataPARC features ultra-secure SSL technology and supports modern cyber security protocols such as federated identity infrastructure and single sign-on (SSO).

Powering Practical Analytics Solutions for 25+ Years

We were trying to optimize the largest facility in our company and PARCview allowed us to overlay data – both lab and process – to break down perceptive barriers and make data-driven decisions.

Our investment in dataPARC is allowing us to focus on system optimization as we leverage the data we are now capturing.

Tyler Fedun
Manager IT Operations – Energy Transfer

We make a lot of different different grades of paper. In order to maximize the dollars for each run, we use dataPARC’s centerline tool to find ‘golden runs’ and those become our target each time we run a grade.
