The biggest problem within a processor's plant is sharing information, says Peter Barber, director of this information system for the shopfloor. Shopfloor-Online provides an up-to-date view of operations and collects data from across the entire factory from areas such as production equipment, quality checking, operator input, line sensors, and PLCs. All data are managed in a single database to give access across multiple desktops, various plants, and different time zones. Software only needs to be loaded once onto a server and anyone authorized who has access to a browser can view real-time, historical, and quality data.
