Tools Improve Integration/Collaboration

Two new tools have been added to the vendor’s FactoryTalk integrated production and performance software suite.

FactoryTalk Integrator allows manufacturers to more easily connect their plant-floor applications with higher-level business systems for more responsive and informed decision making. The robust and expandable architecture of FactoryTalk Integrator helps feed common types of information required by a manufacturing execution system (MES), such as work orders, schedules or recipes, directly from enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. FactoryTalk Portal helps manufacturers increase productivity by allowing them to consolidate their Web-based interfaces into one manageable and configurable launch point. FactoryTalk Portal is a Web-based framework that allows manufacturers to quickly build highly scaleable portals designed to improve employee productivity through personalized and collaborative access to information, applications and people. FactoryTalk Integrator and FactoryTalk Portal incorporate IBM’s WebSphere middleware technology for increased application-to-application connectivity.
