This software platform with a suite of industrial applications is designed to give operators, supervisors and plant managers the visibility and insights to take the right actions for productivity, quality and compliance.
New features in the enhanced manufacturing operations management platform include:
Enhanced user experience based on new HTML 5 web client;

- A statistical process control (SPC) application, to determine if each process is in a state of control;
- A Batch Compare application – for batch analysis
ABB Ability Manufacturing Operations Management is designed to simplify production management by enabling performance monitoring, downtime management and maintenance support, as well as providing statistical production analysis tools. It provides solutions and tools to facilitate the collection, consolidation and distribution of production, quality and energy information via the plant’s web-based reports, trends, and graphs.
A self-service dashboard application promotes increased collaboration, providing visibility from shop floor to top floor and spanning IT and OT environments. It increases data connectivity to all apps and modules within the MOM suite, combining historic and manufacturing data and providing the user with improved customization capabilities. Dashboards can be shared amongst users, further promoting collaboration between teams. Trends and events are displayed together, which enables customers to identify issues and opportunities enabling informed and timely decisions.
The common services platform features an HTML 5 web platform that runs across all suites so that applications can be viewed on different devices right down to a 10-inch tablet.
Statistical data process control (SPC) is used in manufacturing to determine if each process is in a state of control. The new SPC application works across all the different apps and modules.
In addition to the existing Batch View and Batch Investigate features, a comparison option has been added to the platform’s batch analysis applications, allowing different types of comparison.
ABB Ability Manufacturing Operations Management is part of ABB Ability, the company’s unified, cross-industry, digital offering — extending from device to edge to cloud — with devices, systems, solutions, services costs. ABB Ability was launched in 2017 and already offers more than 210 solutions.
