MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition systems) are the heart of any manufacturing shop floor. Our customers have integrated L2L CloudDISPATCH to a wide variety of MES / SCADA systems. When it comes to MES / SCADA data we actually need very little from the manufacturing line to drive the production modules various dashboards, pitch boards, and operator portals.
L2L CloudDispatch leverages your existing machine connectivity to collect this data. There's no need to rip and replace your existing SCADA or MES PLC connectivity. You spent a lot of money, time, and effort to put that in place. Using that investment means a faster time to value for you and your production team.
When it comes to MES / SCADA integration, L2L CloudDISPATCH is mostly interested in machine-based abnormality/predictive events, machine cycle counts, and line-level production/scrap counts. Typically this represents a small subset of the overall tag-based data collected by MES and SCADA solutions. This means your integration will be far easier, smaller in scope, and faster to complete. Everyone wins!
MES systems can be unique based on the production environment. We're happy to help guide you through the process to help ensure your MES / SCADA data gets into the system. Below is a list of general use cases that we have encountered.
General Use Cases:
- Machine abnormalities that trigger Dispatch events and workflows
- Predictive Maintenance based on Machine data
- Machine Cycle Counts for launching Preventative Maintenance (PM) dispatches
- Recording Line Level Production and Scrap Counts
