PlantMaster - Concept
Networking the machines
PlantMaster supports both cabled and wireless networks to connect the machines to the central server. Machines are equipped with one of BMS’s data units for automatic as well as manual data collection or linked directly to the server through their Ethernet interface.
ERP system integration
PlantMaster is easily integrated with the customer’s ERP system. Through a standard interface, order and product data is transferred from the ERP system and imported in the PlantMaster data base.
The integrated export functionality allows a straightforward upload of production data, calculated production schedules, work-in-progress and performance indicators from PlantMaster to the ERP system.
PlantMaster uses the standard TCP/IP protocols for integration with the host computer.
Connecting remote sites
In the remote site, M-Servers or WDL-Servers, connected to a leased telephone line or the company’s Intranet, link the machines to the central computer system. A dedicated “multi-site consolidation module” on the central PlantMaster server allows integrated reporting for all sites into one single reporting environment.
