The D.R.E.A.M System
The D.R.E.A.M. (Digitally Recorded Event Auditing Manager) system is a combination of hardware and software that records various events within a manufacturing environment. With the D.R.E.A.M. system, your company can monitor downtimes on manufacturing lines, temperatures of equipment, various plant efficiencies, specifications of products, and other important decision-making information available during the real-time manufacturing process.
Through a network of input modules, the D.R.E.A.M. system can receive various analog or digital signals. This system works wonderfully with dry-contact switches, standard optical sensors, AC/DC voltages, and many other forms of input. When an event occurs with your manufacturing system, you will know when it occurs and precisely what the problem is. With these inputs, you have the ability to run an efficient and productive facility.
This system is capable of much more than just monitoring manufacturing systems, it can take action as well. Output modules can turn on and off devices according to system state. When an input receives a signal, our system can turn on warning lights, record downtimes, activate or deactivate machinery, or change the state of a device just to name a few functions.
Perhaps the most attractive feature about the D.R.E.A.M. system is that it gives accurate manufacturing information at your fingertips. All events can be viewed through a single Microsoft Access database in a simple format. Having all of this information at your fingertips allows you to make more informed and effective manufacturing decisions. As an owner of this system, you may compare efficiencies from month to month, monitor downtime over a period of time, or maybe find the average temperature of a machine over a time span. As a plant manager, you can compare the productivity between work shifts as well as seasonal productivity. In addition to actually recording information, with Microsoft Access you have the ability to make those numbers work for you through the use of calculations and user-friendly formats.
In addition to database functionality, users of the D.R.E.A.M. system may also view their information via a secured web browser interface. Through the use of Active-X components, your web browser can be a focus of information before your eyes. Current machine stats, daily machine downtimes, and many more real-time statistics can be viewed with ease.
As you can see, the power of the D.R.E.A.M. is in its flexibility. This system can be molded to fit your company's needs.
