Those machines that spread all across our plant floor and enterprise are telling you something. With FactoryTalk® View software, you can get a clear consistent story from the standalone machine level HMI to distributed visualization solutions covering your entire enterprise. A single software package covers HMI challenges in process, batch and discrete application. Clear displays and a common programming language, including a huge library of faceplates, help confirm that you get the best possible perspectives of your machine performance. With users at multiple levels in your organization all seeing the same views of the machines, you speed up the ability to manage production…which is a story you can all get behind.
Good things happen when operators, technicians and engineers have relevant production information at their fingertips. They can meet production targets, reduce waste and energy usage, improve processes, quickly resolve problems, and more. This eBook explores how Modern HMI Software makes this possible.
Today’s industrial operations run on information to meet production targets, to reduce waste and energy usage, to improve processes, and more. But information is only effective if workers can readily access it and easily understand it. Modern HMI software can give workers the information they need, in the time, place and format that they need it. That’s why HMI software is the cornerstone of any information-driven operation.
