MES

Manufacturing Execution System

What is MES? Modern manufacturing plants use Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) to monitor and manage work in process (WIP) that use up-to-date information which provides a snapshot of current state of commodity being manufactured. It can also be the repository for process data.

FIS

Factory Information System

Predict, Reduce and Eliminate Equipment Downtime: Using an advanced algorithms, FIS software helps to guide maintenance tasks to keep mission-critical equipment up and running, rather than wait for error conditions.

Automatically Detect Faults and Receive Real-time Notifications: Reveal FIS software monitors systems and equipment for fault conditions and ties into Reveal alert management software to provide alerts and detailed info when set thresholds are met.

DCS

Data Collection System

Data collection system is the process of gathering and measuring data, information or any variables of interest in a standardized and established manner that establishes a database that enables the collector to answer or test hypothesis and evaluate outcomes of the particular collection.

Disposition

Disposition Module

A tool within Reveal software for automating the disposition of Non-Conforming parts by desginated users with ability to add appropriate information by level of responsibility built in to the tool.

Quality Data

Quality data in manufacturing gathers, tracks and documents the transformation of raw materials to finished goods. Quality data provides information that helps manufacturing decision makers understand how current conditions on the plant floor can be optimized to improve production output. Examples: Percent Failures, Throughput, CpK, XBar R, XBar S, Run Chart

Machine Data

Machine data in manufacturing gathers, tracks and documents all of the available machine technology information related to the machine: cycle time, down time, pressure, etc., maintenance scheduling and optimal machine parts.
