The production operation in focus
All information at a glance with SitePilot Line Diagnostics
The users of production management systems want fast and simple access to illuminatingly meaningful information on their production lines. Individually and role-specifically compiled, transmitted with proactive situation-responsiveness, easily comprehensible, flexibly communicated, and displayed on any suitable device ‒ these are the salient requirements that need to be met for modern-day information provision And this is precisely what Krones has accomplished, in the shape of SitePilot creating a brand that synergises all IT solutions under a single roof, and provides them with a thematic structure. It incorporates a comprehensive kit of software modules, containing appropriate solutions for all tasks along the entire value creation chain – from production to logistics. All SitePilot software modules follow a consistent architecture and a harmonised design concept. It is based predominantly on web technology, and can thus be used on mobile terminals as well.
The first solution immediately available in this context is SitePilot Line Diagnostics, which supersedes the LDS line documentation system used hitherto. Line Diagnostics is an ideal tool for providing information in the filling and packaging categories. The software is a state-of-the-art creation, featuring intuitive operator control, and supplying its users with easily comprehensible, situationally relevant data in a proactively role-tailored mode. On the basis of significantly compressed and nonetheless easily comprehensible information, (key ratios), the quality, performance or cost indicators of individual machines or even complete lines are displayed for the operator’s attention.
Under an Early Adopter Program, several selected users have since May 2015 been testing the new solution. With the market launch during the first quarter of 2016, Krones will be offering SitePilot Line Diagnostics for new installations and upgrades.
