SCADA System Integration Services
Full-Service Integrator of Control and Automation Systems for Process and Packaging.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a combination of software and hardware elements that allow manufacturers to:
Manage and Control Processes Locally and Remotely
Monitor, Collect and Analyze Real-Time Data
Interact with Manufacturing
devices such as sensors, valves, pumps, motors, and more on the production line through human-machine interface (HMI) software
Record Information in Historical Data Logs
SCADA systems integration helps maintain efficiency, communicate issues, minimize downtime, and provide data for smarter business decisions. Quantum Solutions has years of experience and expertise in designing and programming SCADA systems for a wide range of industries. Whil there are a variety of ways to use SCADA networks, we will determine the best uses for your business’s needs.
SCADA System Components
Human Machine Interface (HMI) Development
The HMI is the user interface in the industrial design of human–computer interaction. The goal of the HMI is to allow effective operation and control of the machine from the human end, whilst the machine simultaneously feeds back information that aids the operators’ decision-making process. From custom drawn graphics that really highlight your facility to more generic templates and faceplates, Quantum can develop an application to fit your facility needs. We develop in the latest standards using global objects, parameter files, and direct tagging to keep your application organized, expandable, and easy to manage after the installation.
Historical Data Logging
Data collection is the process of gathering and measuring information on targeted variables in an established systematic fashion, which then enables one to answer relevant questions and evaluate outcomes. Quantum has experience with several different historical data logging packages, and can help from design to implementation. Historical data allows customers to historically evaluate their processes more effectively, identifying areas of inefficiency and lost production. Once tracking relevant process information, a historian package then allows customers to utilize the various performance metrics and visualization softwares on the market.
Server/Client & Thin Client Configuration
Many facilities are short on resources, especially in the IT realm. Quantum will manage the installation and configuration of the many different available SCADA software, following best practices for which software goes on which virtual server to maximize redundancy and physical hardware resources.
A database is an organized collection of data. From batch records to recipe management, there are many applications where a database is useful to manage event based data as opposed to the real-time process data provided by a historian package.
Server Configuration & Virtualization
Hardware virtualization or platform virtualization refers to the creation of a virtual machine that acts like a real computer with an operating system. Software executed on these virtual machines is separated from the underlying hardware resources. Quantum can virtualize, configure, and manage the many different servers required to implement various SCADA integration solutions to maximize your physical hardware resources.
Data Visualization, Reporting & Dashboards
A primary goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and efficiently via statistical graphics, plots and information graphics. Effective visualization helps users analyze and reason about data and evidence. It makes complex data more accessible, understandable and usable. Whether our customers want basic reporting in excel or web accessible dashboards and graphics, we have the experience to provide context to the valuable data our customers collect.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) Performance Tracking
Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is a term used to evaluate how effectively a manufacturing operation is utilized. OEE measurement is commonly used as a key performance indicator (KPI) in conjunction with lean manufacturing efforts to provide an indicator of success. Quantum has experience calculating custom OEE data as well as implementing various OEE software packages across a wide range of industries and processes.
Software Installation & Configuration
Many facilities are short on resources, especially in the IT realm. Quantum will manage the installation and configuration of the many different available SCADA software, following best practices for which software goes on which virtual server to maximize redundancy and physical hardware resources. Our SCADA engineers can maximize your business’s resources to improve operational efficiency.
With an integrated SCADA system, all these components work together in one system. Quantum Solutions can work with you to solve your business challenges while increasing overall efficiency, transparency, and data collection. SCADA monitoring the system as a whole and reduces downtime and costs while increasing productivity.
