MPDV extends Smart MES Applications
In times of Industry 4.0 and ever more complex production processes, the demand for mobile data collection solutions is increasing. That's why MPDV offers new apps for smartphones and tablets specifically developed to collect production data. We devised these apps with a user-friendly guidance in mind.
In addition to collecting data with stationary touchscreen terminals or Industrial PCs, MES users can now acquire data simply via a smartphone or tablet with the new apps. The new data collection functions are called up easily and conveniently from a mobile machine overview.
Examples of mobile MES applications
The MES experts speak of so-called Smart MES Applications (SMA) in association with the MES HYDRA from MPDV. Smart MES Applications provide the user with current machine data and KPIs. The new apps supply on smartphone or tablet the classic data collection functions such as "Log on operation", "Change input batch", "Log off person" or "Change resource status". You can find further information on Smart MES Applications here.
The grouping of functions according to order, workplace, resources and material ensures a space-saving layout and convenient operation at the same time. A barcode or QR code can be scanned to avoid tedious and error-prone manual data entry via the keyboard.
Similar to the previous data collection functions, all dialogs can be configured so that users can adapt them to the requirements of their recording process without any programming knowledge. Furthermore, the user can create their own data collection dialogs.
Rainer Deisenroth, Vice President Sales / Marketing at MPDV, explains: „The new function package is now available and significantly expands the possibilities and flexibility of data collection in everyday production.
