Schwer und Kopka GmbH - effiziente Prozess- und  Werkzeugüberwachung Ihrer Produktionsmaschinen

The plant data collection (PDC) connects the machine data with the operational resources.

The machine data is linked to the completed orders and articles. This always requires a machine terminal, via which the necessary messages such as job start, job end or job interruption can be made. Optionally, further data such as down codes, personnel attendance, batch changes, tool changes or rejects can be reported.

Usually the typical data feedback to the ERP system is performed automatically. A PDC system requires that the recording system is firmly networked with the IT environment of the manufacturing company. Interfaces to the ERP, CAQ, FEM or Personnel systems form the basis for this networking and ensure uniformity of the collected information. In addition, repair and maintenance tasks can also be recorded and evaluated.
