Packaging Automation Best Practices for InduSoft Web Studio


<ul><li> 1. </li></ul> <p> 2. 3. 4. A custom InduSoft solution allows this packager of fine coffees and teas to monitor production runs on a newly installed filling line, and eliminate product loss due to overfilling. The InduSoft system associates historical data with both job numbers and SKU numbers so Mother Parkers management can analyze individual runs. Mother Parkers chose InduSoft for its all-inclusive offering of PLC drivers and because it offered significant cost advantages over competitive software. The user plans to expand the same solution to four additional lines and to add operator workstations to improve performance at the local level. 5. Tight Production Monitoring Reduces "Give Away" on One Coffee Packing Line Grows to Monitor Each Plant Line Since Mother Parkers had the initial InduSoft Web Studio application installed, the most significant benefit is that staff can associate data with a specific production run so that its possible to tell precisely what costs are associated with a particular blend. Its possible to hone in and see how much coffee is being given away inadvertently and get closer to target weights. 6. 7. SCADA OEE / MES HMI Mobile Seamless deployment across all operating systems supported by Microsoft Hardware manufacturer independency! 8. 1997 Windows CE v1.0 Windows 95 CEView v1.0 2013 Windows CE 6.5 Windows 7 CEView v7.1 9.

Machines (PLCs, I/Os, Barcode Readers, etc) 13. Easy-to-configure interface to any SQL Relational Database: SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Sybase, OSI PI, MS Access, Excel, and others Interface via standard technologies: ADO.NET, ADO, OLE-DB, and ODBC Redundancy and Store-and-forward built-in features Alarm history, Event history, Trend history, Process data, OEE dashboards, and more. 14. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) 15. BI Dashboard Template add-on 16. Dream Report add-on 17. Multi-touch interface Zoom In / Zoom out screens Pan screens Grow &amp; Shrink objects (Size animation) Drag objects (Position animation) Rotate objects (Rotation animation) Dual or Multi-touch command (Command animation) Touch events (Command animation) Built-in Inertia effect Watch the video demonstration 18. Native support for Security Socket Layer (SSL), made it easier and securer than ever to send emails from InduSoft Web Studio! 19. Linked Symbols Using Linked Symbols, the user can create, modify and customize his/her own library of symbols and re-use them in many different projects. After editing the MASTER SYMBOL once, the changes are replicated to all instances of this symbol in the application, improving productivity during application development. Create the Linked Symbol Edit your own Custom Properties Save the MASTER SYMBOL in the library. Insert the Linked Symbol into the application screens and assign tags and/or values to it. After inserting the symbol, the user can determine whether to keep the link with the MASTER Symbol or not. 20. License Server 21. 22. Application Resolution Width x Height ratio Platform and License Review Project Settings (Viewer, Communication, Web) Touch-screen settings (cursor, focus, vk, right- click, object size) Translation (objects size) Communication (every state or last state) 23. Arrays Classes Tag Fields (-&gt;Hi, -&gt;HiLimit, -&gt;Quality, -&gt;TimeStamp, etc) Tag names (use objective names - avoid long names) Avoid retentive values/parameters for a large number of tags Tag Integration Tag description 24. Screen groups Re-use screens (array tags, indirect tags, or mnemonics) Share background pictures when applicable Linked Symbols $Ext() function to text used in external dialogs, such as MsgBox or InputBox. 25. Avoid spaces and special characters in file names (e.g.: screen names) Add comments to scripts and worksheets History Life Time Avoid calling modal dialogs on the Server (MsgBox, InputBox, $RDFileN, etc) when using Thin Clients. Avoid hard-coded paths. Use $GetAppPath(). 26. Avoid repeated scripts Global Procedures. When applicable, use On Error Resume Next and On Error Goto 0 in scripts Make sure that when using $DBCursorOpen() or $DBCursorOpenSQL(), call $DBCursorClose() to avoid memory leaking. 27. When using the Recipe task, enable the XML format. When using Thin Clients, enable the SSL option, as well as the Web Tunneling Gateway. Use the TXRX built-in driver to read data from scanners and barcode readers (ASCII protocol) 28. Sequential addresses in the driver sheet Consider the options Screen or Auto in the Main Driver Sheet and OPC Client worksheets. Adjust the Send Period for communication with Thin Clients Trend decimation and Database Gateway Avoid large picture objects and fill effects in low- end HMIs (Windows Embedded CE). 29. Output window (Log Options, and Log Tags) Database Spy Cross-Reference $Trace() function 30. Clear Database Spy Disable LogWin save to disk option Remove test files (HST, Alarm, WebDump) Remove unused tags from the project Quality Feedback (unexpected errors) Run Verify command Create a backup 31. 32.
