Process Traceability System Analytics Built to Understand Manufacturing Report System


Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2014 -- VIMANA Connect by System Insights is a suite of hardware modules, software applications, and services to support MTConnect compatibility with legacy devices and sensors. VIMANA Connect is a key enabling technology for System Insights’ VIMANA predictive analytics platform; providing compatibility for legacy equipment that is not capable of native MTConnect support. The VIMANA Connect suite includes MTConnect configuration services using the most accurate interpretation by the authors of the standard. Each VIMANA Connect product comprises of hardware, configure services, and data analytics software.

Process Traceability tracks and traces every process that happened to a part as it got manufactured. There is a significant difference between Part Traceability and Process Traceability. Part Traceability primarily deals with what part was manufactured, and when. Process Traceability, builds and expands on this information, to fully understand exactly how the part was manufactured. Process Traceability is a key requirement in Aerospace, Medical, and other high-precision manufacturing sectors.

System Insights’ Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Athulan Vijayaraghavan recently shared “With a Process Traceability system analytics are built to fully understand the manufacturing process execution and its impacts, and apply this information in improving efficiencies. This kind of a system can also help in integrating with upstream applications that look at the design of the Part, and downstream applications that look at the use-phase of the Part,” suggested Dr. Vijayaraghavan.

System Insights will exhibit VIMANA at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at Booth: E-4736 Pavilion: IANA. The show will be September 8-13 at McCormick Place, Chicago IL.
