Rockwell adds mobile capabilities to manufacturing intelligence software

Rockwell adds mobile capabilities to manufacturing intelligence software

Manufacturers now have the freedom to use any digital device to easily access optimized performance metrics and data analytics from plant floors and machines, thanks to new capabilities embedded in the FactoryTalk VantagePoint EMI v6.0 software from Rockwell Automation.

The VantagePoint v6.0 software now includes VantagePoint mobile, a component that enables users to create displays and interact with data across any HTML5-compliant browser and mobile platforms, such as iOS and Android. Users can now easily log in to the VantagePoint system and automatically view Web-based KPI content that is responsive to the device they are using - from smartphones to tablets to PCs.

This is a significant change from the conventional, costly and time-consuming approaches that enable desktop or mobile access to manufacturing data. No user-specific configurations created by network administrators or IT staff are required, enabling manufacturers to quickly on-board more users and deliver value to increase productivity.

"The VantagePoint mobile component instantly detects the type of device being used to access information and adjusts the user experience for that screen," said Angela Rapko, product manager for FactoryTalk VantagePoint software at Rockwell Automation. "This out-of-the-box solution will enable more users to access valuable operational insight while lowering the cost of delivering that data."

Another new key capability is the 'composer' feature, which allows VantagePoint v6.0 users to browse through data and easily customise content based on individual roles, priorities and viewing preferences. Using the software's drag-and-drop interactive tools, users can create personalised displays to quickly find the information that is most important to them. The 'favourites' capability also allows users to configure KPI data in the visual formats they prefer, from bar graphs to gauges to plant maps. They can then save the data or share it with a group using the VantagePoint mobile component.
