Siemens Industry is expanding its Simatic WinCC V7.2 Scada software with the optional WinCC/PerformanceMonitor package for calculating and analysing plant-specific key performance indicators (KPIs). Through this new expansion, users can achieve optimisation potential for production and measures for increasing productivity, as combining results and accompanying values can reveal correlations, such as product quality in relation to suppliers.
The Simatic WinCC V7.2 Scada software supports the acquisition, visualisation and analysis of production data. Analysis with the new WinCC/PerformanceMonitor software package is based on the process data acquired by WinCC, which is associated during runtime. The user quickly and simply sets up calculation formulas to be used in WinCC, without needing any additional knowledge.
Several visualisations are possible for evaluation: a Gantt chart with the time sequence of states, a bar chart for analysing key performance indicators, and a table for states and accompanying values. Visualisations are also available via the web in the WinCC WebNavigatorClient. The calculated KPIs can be further processed in a WinCC display, for example line-dashboard, or in a trend display. In conjunction with the Simatic information server, key performance indicators can be grouped together online to form target-group-oriented reports and can be queried at any time.
