October 082004
InduSoft Web™ Studio Integrates With Protia’s Strategic Line of Sight to Offer Enterprise Performance Solutions and Extend the Value of Real-Time Automation

Austin, Texas - (July 21, 2004) – InduSoft LLC and Protia Inc. today announced a partnership to integrate InduSoft’s Web Studio™ (IWS) industrial automation software with Protia’s Strategic Line of Sight Performance Management software. This
integration will provide customers with a powerful, easy-to-use interface for visualizing and driving improvements in manufacturing performance.

InduSoft Web Studio is a powerful collection of automation tools that includes all the building blocks needed to develop human machine interfaces (HMIs), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, and embedded instrumentation and control applications. IWS manages workstations; monitors, debugs, and updates software remotely; and accesses real-time, dynamic graphic screens, trends, alarms, reports, and recipes online all via a web browser.

Protia’s Strategic Line of Sight (SLOS) web-based Performance Management software converts InduSoft’s measurement data— temperatures, flows, pressures, compositions, etc.— into key performance indicators such as unit utilization, yield or efficiency, percent utilization and inventory costs. This information is then made available for operational planning, scorecards, dashboards, trend graphing, threshold alerts and Six Sigma portfolio analysis.

Bottom Line benefits
The relationship between InduSoft and Protia offers customers a real-time performance management solution that provides integration to other sources of data relevant to achieving Enterprise Performance Management. Benefits include faster speed to resolution, improved inter-plant/inter-company collaboration, and opportunities for crossplant analysis.

"When you derive your key performance indicators from dynamic measurements and event monitoring, you can often find hidden assets or unused capacity,” says Marcia Gadbois, VP of Business Development of InduSoft. “The partnership between InduSoft and Protia allows our customers to quickly react to information that, effectively handled, can increase the enterprise’s optimum performance."

The integrated solution also creates a practice of understanding, optimizing and aligning the operational business activities and processes to higher level corporate goals and objectives. Using analysis products, the client has control to manipulate real-time
automation and other ERP data, and to make meaningful correlations via the web. This results in reduced manufacturing costs, faster issue resolution, and better collaboration and visibility.

"It’s great to see our partnership with InduSoft come to fruition,” said Beth Lillie, Managing Director at Protia. “The integration of SLOS and Web Studio provides our clients the ability to actively steer their business and proactively manage the bottom line using actionable information. The partnership extends both products’ capabilities andbrings powerful real-time performance visualization to our enterprise customers."
