Your advantages at a glance
Optimize Production Processes
Optimization and efficacy in the value chain is what companies aim for. The Time Series Data Service enables users to access, monitor and track process data. Users are able to access the data from every connected machine, not matter where it is located, and visualize the data. The Time Series Data Service does not stop there, further, users have the opportunity to monitor the data and set customized alerts. Users have a direct insight into the production process and make decision based on actual data.
Shorten Downtime and Maintenance Times
During downtimes companies do not produce any products or adding value to the business. Every producing company aims to reduce the downtime or at least be in control of it. With the Time Series Data Service users now know when downtimes can be expected and maintenances are necessary.
Consistent Product, Service and Process Quality
Quality can be determined by many factors, which can also be visualized in Time Series Data Service. These criteria (whether weight, throughput or similar) can be prepared transparently for everyone in the Smart Service. Be informed if your goods do not meet your requirements and ensure that defective goods can be sorted out immediately and do not become a complaint case. Or ensure that e.g. energy peaks can be intercepted by informing you at an early stage.
Accessible Expert Knowledge
Every company has a small handful of employees who know the production and the machines better than everyone else, often due to long work experience. This knowledge can be made accessible and be shared through the Time Series Data Service. The data is visualized and alerts can be set based on the data.
View into the Smart Service
The „Graph“ widget is one of the simplest ways to display time series data as a graph. It allows you to easily display incoming data as curves, bars or points, each of which can be customized in color. The widget also offers a large number of other customization options.
Alertings are also set up in this widget, which makes it one of the most important widgets in the Time Series Data Service.
With the widget „Stat“ it is possible to display a certain value (e.g. current, highest, lowest value) of an incoming data flow. It is possible to add color coding to values below or above a certain value (e.g. up to 80 = green; above 80 = yellow; above 100 = red). The user always has the choice here whether to display the background with a curve of the past data, or only the current value.
In addition to the color coding, it is also possible to create a plain text message from the numbers. This can be configured in the same way as the color coding (e.g. up to 80 = „Everything is running normally, don’t worry“; above 80 = „The machine is slowly running hot, a break will be needed soon if the machine does not cool down“; above 100 = „The machine will shut down soon to prevent damage“). The color coding and the plain text coding can be combined well with each other.
The Alert List widget shows changes (based on the alerts that have been set up) that would have or did trigger alerts. This is based on the settings in the alerts (e.g. PENDING = If an alert is set up so that the limit must be exceeded for at least 5 minutes to trigger an alert; OK = If after a PENDING status the limit exceedance has decreased; ALERT = If after a PENDING status the limit exceedance is exceeded for more than the set value).
Thus, the Alert list shows past limit violations in a convenient overview. It is also possible to set whether the alerts should be displayed only from one dashboard or from all dashboards created in the account.
