Scada software expanded for plant-specific analysis of individual KPIs

Siemens Industry Automation division has expanded the Simatic WinCC V7.2 Scada software with the optional WinCC/PerformanceMonitor package for calculating and analyzing plant-specific key performance indicators (KPIs). The user can derive optimisation potential for production and measures for increasing productivity. Combining the results and accompanying values reveals correlations, such as product quality in relation to suppliers.

The Simatic WinCC V7.2 Scada software supports the acquisition, visualization, and analysis of production data. Analysis with the new WinCC/PerformanceMonitor software package is based on the process data acquired by WinCC, which are associated with each other during runtime. The user quickly and simply sets up the calculation formulas to be used in WinCC, without any additional knowledge.

Several visualisations are possible for evaluation: a Gantt chart with the time sequence of states, a bar chart for analysing the key performance indicators and a table for states and accompanying values. The visualizations are also available via the web in the WinCC WebNavigatorClient. The calculated key performance indicators can be further processed in a WinCC display, for example line-dashboard, or in a trend display. In conjunction with the Simatic information server, the key performance indicators can be grouped together online to form target-group-oriented reports and can be queried at any time.
