Scalable, configurable MES solution
The Proficy Plant Applications software suite is made up of scalable, configurable modules to help companies effectively manage their plant operations and deliver results.
- Efficiency Management: provides a comprehensive view of equipment uptime, downtime and waste, including, but not limited to, insight into overall equipment effectiveness. This module improves the throughput of a plant without additional equipment expenditures and provides the performance management tools to drive plant efficiency.
- Quality Management: offers insight into how products are actually produced against their specifications. This module improves the quality of products while reducing waste.
- Production Management: improves and controls how products actually flow through the plant by tracking production against specifications and schedules. This module provides product genealogy reporting and makes scheduling changes to reduce work in progress (WIP) and overall inventory.
- Plant-Wide Reporting: providing a series of standard web-based reports and dashboards for monitoring operations. Its interactive drill-down capabilities help users identify “root cause” problems and take corrective actions.
Proficy Plant Applications allows DuPont to efficiently manage its plant processes in a unified, easy-to-configure “plant model” that gives the company clear insight into their operations.
