Integrate Production Processes

Every manufacturing company is focused on the pursuit of sustainable, effective and agile operations. Over the next five to ten years, the winners will be those who understand the value of integration across function, department and process.

Only integration can deliver the actionable intelligence needed for enterprise-wide collaboration - and that collaboration is the key to the reduced time-to-market and greater flexibility needed to satisfy customer demand. With PSANI, being at the helm of production is a reality. From the office to the plant floor, PSANI empowers productivity!

Achieving improvement at a single plant is good. Replicating that improvement across all plants and integrating intelligence from the shop floor to the top floor is better.

To protect their margins, manufacturing companies must maximise operational efficiency and quality across production operations. In essence, they must break down information silos in production facilities and between manufacturing and corporate systems.

PSANI from Byte Apex helps our manufacturing clients to bridge the gap between ERP and process control. It allows you to establish common standards and best practice across multiple plants and sites, minimising cost, lead-times, WIP and inventory.

PSANI adds value in the following:

  • Improved product quality assurance
  • Enhanced production performance
  • Reduction in production cost and waste
  • Streamline manufacturing processes
  • Stricter production data integrity and control
  • Optimal production planning
  • Increased resource utilisation efficiency

In addition, our PSANI turnkey solutions improve production tracking, tracing and auditing. Significantly increasing the quality of compliance reporting, while decreasing the burden. PSANI establishes meaningful and actionable dash boards that deliver essential intelligence to production, operations, and business functions across the enterprise.

PSANI Centralised Control

Close

PSANI is a solution that uses modern IT practices and innovative software technology to connect manufacturing machinery and enterprise application systems, yielding centralised production management and control.

A PSANI solution consists of various components:

Essential to every PSANI installation is the central processing and data acquisition server, PSANI Elements, which is at the heart of each production plant. It is a SCADA component that is used by systems integrators and developers, when automation of production fulfilment at a manufacturing facility is needed. PSANI elements has two modules, PSANI DB and PSANI Core, both requiring implementation and setup for processing systems control and data acquisition at a plant. The PSANI DB module provides for storage of production processing and tracking information. The PSANI core module is a JAVA API Framework that systems integrators and developers can use for Serial or IP based data transmission to and from equipment, such as Computers, PLCs, Scanners, Printers and other automation machinery.

PSANI work cells provide manufacturing operational capabilities to handle production workflows and work order processing. Work cells have a user interface that allows operators to control and monitor manufacturing processes. Work cells perform control calls and data acquisition to manufacturing equipment via the PSANI Elements component. Each work cell has role based security for precise access control and work authorisations. PSANI Work cells are customised to production requirements and implemented onsite by a Byte Apex engineer.

The PSANI Production Network component streamlines production fulfilment between corporate head offices, production admin offices and manufacturing facilities. It handles workflow management, production order creation and processing, planning, product profiling, materials handling, stock inventory, product tracking and auditing.

With built in intelligence for production performance reporting, monitoring, alarming and notifications on your daily production fulfilment, PSANI Intelligence keeps you at the helm of your production data. PSANI Integration brings production and IT together, it is used for collaboration between manufacturing systems and enterprise IT systems including ERP, WMS and proprietary EIS systems. PSANI Integration has a web services library, which caters for several manufacturing/IT integration requirements out the box. Further customisations can be developed to meet additional requirements.

PSANI Empowers Productivity

Every manufacturing company is focused on the pursuit of sustainable, effective and agile operations. Over the next five to ten years, the winners will be those who understand the value of integration across function, department and process.

Only integration can deliver the actionable intelligence needed for enterprise-wide collaboration - and that collaboration is the key to the reduced time-to-market and greater flexibility needed to satisfy customer demand. With PSANI, being at the helm of production is a reality.

From the office environment to the plant floor, PSANI gears manufacturing across function, department & process. PSANI breaks away from the outdated siloed treatment of applications. Instead it integrates them, creating new and more adaptable service and delivery models that drive efficiency across the manufacturer's organisation. The result is an organisation fine-tuned for speed and agility, able to focus on market challenges while we take care of the technology that enables change. Our approach creates transformational solutions for competitive advantage and commercial flexibility.

Byte Apex is perfectly positioned to help its manufacturing clients achieve the degree of technical and process integration required. This is thanks, in part, to our depth of experience in designing, building and operating information systems in both production and business management environments.

PSANI solution features include:

  • Secure Web based clients to view real time information about your production from anywhere.
  • A centralised hub which connects machine-to-machine and communicates between them (M2M), providing a intelligent network for better control of your manufacturing systems.
  • Manufacturing systems monitoring and alarming in real-time
  • A secure API for interconnectivity between ERP and Manufacturing Plant floor systems, using industry standards such as SOA or high speed messaging platforms.
  • Enhanced production performance with high speed data acquisition capabilities and uncompromising data integrity.
  • Improved production intelligence into operations, resource utilisation, stock control and materials management, product tracking, production quality and throughput.

Critically, we are expert in transforming real-time manufacturing data-flows into actionable intelligence - and this is the key to more responsive, more agile and more collaborative manufacturing practice.
