_Available ThingWorx modules
ThingWorx is a multifaceted platform, which is visible immediately from the start of use. The functionalities available after installation prove to be sufficient for some customers. It is worth noting that ThingWorx allows, without additional time and effort, to connect machines installed in factories. This makes it possible to analyze their work, calculate basic KPIs or send SMS or email notifications in the event of a breakdown. Such data can be obtained thanks to modules that can be extended according to the customer's specific needs, if necessary.
A set of methods and screens provide an accessible view of the current and historical operating status of individual devices, machines and lines. It is a ready-made set of tools for the machinery administrator which allows easier monitoring of production disruptions, downtime or the load of individual machines.
Mechanisms and screens dedicated to production managers. Here, in a condensed but easy-to-read form, it is possible to gain insight not only into the current state of a machine's operation, its lifeline (also in the past), but also into key KPIs such as availability, productivity, quality and OEE.
Control Advisor is a set of mechanisms and screens for engineers supervising communication and data flow in industrial networks. It ensures that data downloaded from connected machines, along with the current health status of connections or their history are available in one place. It ensures that data downloaded from connected machines, along with the current health status of connections or their history, is available in one place. It is a place where it is possible to manage and diagnose connections with sources of operation data.
This module provides data or instructions to machine and line operators. In this way, the operator has all the necessary data, regardless of the sources from which it comes. BOMs, changeover instructions, operating instructions, stock levels, performance and quality indicators, data from ERP, MES, QMS, PLM and CMMS platforms, live data from the machine and the line... all aggregated and filtered to give only the information necessary for fast, efficient and accurate operator work.
