Responding to growing industry demand for improved real-time process measurement (RPM) solutions, Citect is pleased to announce the release of its Plant-to-Business Quality analysis module as part of its overall industrial information management (IIM) initiatives. P2B Quality provides automatic identification and modification of out-of-spec values during normal or highthroughput production processes. Real-time capture and logging capabilities provide an improvement in business analysis to keep the production cycle in-spec, thus significantly reducing overall waste. Production Managers can now reliably report on in-spec and out-of-spec production runs, as well as variance within a single run or from cycle to cycle. The P2B Quality non-conforming log report provides production quality management a real-time window into the process for key business decision makers supporting continuous process improvement through real-time information and statistics."To keep up with the increasing demand for Quality Analysis, it is becoming increasingly important to have systems in place which allow the manufacturing process to be scheduled, set up, optimized, controlled, and monitored using intuitive, systematic, document-able and globally supported methods, explained Craig Resnick, Senior Analyst of the ARC Advisory Group. "The manufacturers that tap into and leverage this production management quality data will have a clear advantage in roducing higher quality parts faster, more efficiently and productively, in smaller production runs, at a lower cost, with less downtime and scrap, and based on real-time market demands"."Quality is part of every customer's strategy, states Gary Hopkins, President of Citect America, with our IIM Quality module customers can derive real time quality information from their plant systems. Every percentage improvement that customers make using our Quality module goes right to their bottom line. This is the type of technology that customers will want to invest in."About Citects Industrial Information Management (IIM) Analysis Modules To continually and substantially improve business performance, successful companies in the manufacturing segments need to deploy modular solutions providing fast, incremental and most importantly measurable business improvements. Implementation of a modular approach ensures extensibility of the system and investment, thus maintaining a long-term vision of an integrated architecture. Citects IIM solutions are designed to be deployed as a modular approach whereby each module delivers those benefits to aid in improving each business need independently. Each module has been developed with a focus for returning a measurable ROI to keys area of the business including Production, Quality, Downtime, Metrics and Tracking. When combined, the modules form a fully integrated diagnostics system, providing desktop access to plant wide KPI and OEE information from all facets of the production environment.About CitectCitect is a worldwide leader in industrial automation and information management.
