September 29, 2015– Inductive Automation presented ECS Solutions, Inc. with an Ignition Firebrand Silver Award on September 23, 2015 as part of the 2015 Ignition Community Conference. The project that ECS built on Inductive Automation’s Ignition software helped a customer manage materials used as ingredients in a complex batch manufacturing process.

The other 2015 Discover Gallery Finalists demonstrate the competency and creativity of the Ignition community. “ECS is very proud and humbled to have been selected for this award. I am personally proud to be associated with all of the creative technical folks who work with me at ECS, including Erik Gross, our technical lead on this project,” said Timothy S. Matheny, P.E., ECS Solutions’ President

“Your project was an exceptional and innovative use of the Ignition software. It’s always a thrill to see how our customers are using our software and we were amazed at the quality of your work,” said Steven Galea, Inductive Automation

ECS’ application helps its customer receive pallet quantities of product minor ingredients into one of two kit building areas. The vendor packages are broken down and measured into the required batch recipe quantities and individually bar coded. Whole and measured packages of multiple ingredients are packed into a kit which is then labeled for inventory and later addition to a wet batch. Raw ingredient remainders can be labeled and returned to the warehouse via the warehouse management system. ECS’ application works with the customer Enterprise Resource Planning system for real time tracking of all vendor lot codes into the end product lots. The solution manages approximately 250 ingredients including nine classes of allergens.

ECS Solutions, Inc. is a control system integrator providing quality Total Process Automation solutions to process manufacturers. ECS’ S88 Builder solution sets the standard for batch process control with its agility, flexibility and ergonomic, process-focused, operator interface.
