Real Time Production Monitoring Software
Monitor Production In Real Time
Monitor production KPIs and downtime events in real time, for enterprise-wide visibility into the health of batch and continuous manufacturing processes.
Build Real-Time Dashboards & Displays
Give operators, engineers, & management insight into current operating conditions. Build real-time dashboards & displays to monitor equipment status, site-level process flows, or enterprise-wide production KPIs.
- Configure custom displays that represent your process.
- Combine data from any source (or site) into common dashboards or displays.
- Interact with dashboards & displays to drill-down into data for troubleshooting.
- Access your creations from any mobile device.
- Design dashboards & using 5000+ pre-built graphic objects.
- Import existing graphics from PI, IP.21, & more.
Enable Proactive Plant-Floor Decision-Making
dataPARC’s centerline tool provides operators with an intuitive multivariate control chart with early fault detection and process deviation warnings, so operators can eliminate quality or equipment issues before they occur.
“dataPARC has given us the ability to make decisions based on events as they occur, and in some cases, even forecast into the future.”
Steve West, Senior Process Engineer – Catalyst Paper
Respond Quickly to Process Issues
Configure smart alarms that monitor processes in real-time. Automatically alert operators or maintenance personnel of changes in operating conditions, allowing them to respond quickly and reduce downtime or waste.
- Send notifications instantly, via email or SMS text.
- Record & forward event details in logbook database.
- Escalate notifications to senior staff automatically if issues are ignored.
- Detect compliance events, including data loss.
- Apply deadbanding to ignore planned downtime events.
- Access event data via dataPARC trends, pareto charts, & more.
Share Production KPIs
Build custom reports that automatically populate with your most important production KPIs. Schedule reports to run ahead of your morning meeting, or print them on demand for engineers & managers to have delivered while on call or during key plant trials.
- Report hourly or daily production averages.
- Monitor status of resources like fuel & water.
- Highlight unplanned maintenance & downtime.
- Trigger reports when operating conditions change.
Featured Case Study
The global containerboard market is highly competitive, making process optimization essential to a paper mill’s survival. KapStone’s technical team turned to dataPARC to help them centerline their process, identify golden runs, and reduce costs.
Powering Practical Analytics Solutions for 25+ Years
Instead of having only lab people using the lab database and only engineering using the process information, it’s all come together. It’s all available to operations, engineering, & managers.
Production Engineer, W.R. Grace
I look at dataPARC as the first step in the data journey for our company. If we’re going to become a data-driven company, we have to have easy access to our data. That’s the first step, and that’s what dataPARC has given us.
General Manager, Western Plains Energy
We were trying to optimize the largest facility in our company and dataPARC allowed us to overlay data – both lab and process – to break down perceptive barriers and make data-driven decisions.
Plant Manager, Amalgamated Sugar
The World’s Largest Manufacturers Depend on dataPARC
dataPARC is a flexible industrial analytics toolkit built upon the promise of easy data acquisition & integration. dataPARC’s core building blocks can be used to build any applications to meet your needs.
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.
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.
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.
Manual Data Entry
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.
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.
