  • LMS compact

    Downtime means losses. Since even the shortest amount of downtime, so-called micro-stops, can reduce a system's effectiveness significantly. Within this context, a Line Management System provides a great solution and helps to determine the causes of downtime. LMS compact from ProLeiT offers an add-on for the operating and production management system Plant Acquis iT, thus enabling simple access into the world of Line Management.

    In contrast to traditional LMS solutions, Plant Acquis iT Compact allows fast, simple and cost-effective implementation with reduced sensor technology, licensing and engineering requirements. Additional features provided by the add-on include an interface to existing ERP systems, and thanks to user-friendly operation via a web browser, the time-consuming and complex task of installing a client is no longer necessary.

    LMS compact records system and machine downtime automatically, reliably and exactly. The causes of downtime and other system or order-related data can be entered at any time manually via drop-down boxes. And predefined causes of faults can be enhanced and extended according to your individual needs. The threshold value for micro-faults can also be defined individually.
    The entire data can be analysed down to the finest detail with the help of the drill-down-function: downtime periods can then be arranged hierarchically with varying levels of detail from the overall bottling plant to individual units. LMS compact then outputs the generated reports at every office PC in the Intranet or on smartphones and tablets. Furthermore, customer-specific data can be entered and evaluated and the system can be upgraded to Plant iT LMS, which offers users order and batch areas, OEE evaluations and Stanley diagrams.

    The extensive range of add-ons for LMS compact addresses the needs of varying professional groups in the process engineering industry: for instance, production managers profit from the fast, web-based lists stating the causes and times of faults, while supervisors can use a generated report to gain an overview of the current plant situation before starting a shift. The user-friendly, menu-guided user interface allows plant operators to quickly and, in particular, consistently determine the causes of faults. Paper-based recording, which was always prone to errors, is now a thing of the past. Maintenance staff can extend LMS compact simply by configuring parameters. They are also provided with a quick overview of a plant's weak points and can identify its potentials for optimisation.


  • Manual Weighing System (MWS)

    Adding small quantities of material manually is a task that is regularly needed in the process industry. The required components are weighed either synchronously, i.e. as the order is being completed, or asynchronously, i.e. during the preparation phase before actual production commences. Preparatory weighing is common practice, particularly in the chemical, pharmaceutical and beverage industry. Potential sources of error at this stage are basically due to the fact that weighing orders are written down by hand and safety regulations are not met. Inefficient weighing processes and off-specification batches caused by erroneous additions additionally lead to a notable loss of time and raw materials.

    ProLeiT's Manual Weighing System (MWS), an add-on for the modular process control system Plant iT, delivers a guided manual weighing assistant that enables the clear processing of bills of material while visually and reliably guiding operators through the weighing process aided by five colour grades (coarse/fine dosage, over/under tolerance, partial weighing). In order to offer the best possible support for processes at the operating station, the software contains workflow data, including, e.g., information about required protective clothing or how to handle certain materials.
    Furthermore, the MWS helps operators select the most suitable scales depending on the stipulated weighing and tolerance range. After completing a weighing process, a label can be created for the packaging that - in addition to a barcode - also displays order data, the weighed components including quantities and, if necessary, handling and danger symbols. The numerous functions of the MWS can be customised or, if irrelevant for the customer, deactivated.

    The Manual Weighing System from ProLeiT helps to optimise weighing processes at every level of the process industry: Production managers profit from the traceability of the applied materials and can rely on improved safety standards due to the reliable operator guidance. Moreover, utilisation of barcodes and scanner ensures a particularly high level of safety when adding components. The work of staff at operating stations is significantly aided by clearly structured visualisation techniques and stored workflows, while the complete overview of all existing production orders enhances rationalised work practices. The quality management system can also play a greater role in optimising weighing processes by customising workflows, thus guaranteeing adherence to customer-specific regulations and instructions at all times.
