KAPP Engineering, through experience gained in the implementation of the control system layer of numerous process control systems is now able to offer Management Information Systems / Manufacturing Intelligence Systems (MIS) with reporting capabilities. The systems that we deploy are based on the proven and widely-used Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk Historian and VantagePoint products. The Rockwell Historian product utilises the well-known OSI PI back end, thus enabling powerful historian capabilities combined with a portal which utilises SQL Server Reporting Services and Microsoft Excel for feature-rich reports.

All reports that are generated are accessed using a simple web browser with no complex custom software required. Furthermore, as off-the-shelf packages are utilised in the development of these reports, the software is future-proof and backed by Rockwell Automation; one of the major players in the industry.

Our Management Information Systems / Manufacturing Intelligence Systems (MIS) reporting capabilities include:

  • Equipment Downtime Reporting (includes uptime, downtime and reason codes)
  • Customised Plant Wide Reporting for frequently replicated operational level processes
  • Paper replacement for all manually paper logged plant production and performance reports
  • Live view of the status of production and plant performance via dashboards
