Interactive Map integration
Adding interactive maps to your solution immediately adds value and context to any project.
Create a wide variety of Geographics Information Systems (GIS), for solutions such as:
- Global or Regional Information Systems
- Network Operations Centers (NOCs)
- Transportation Management Centers
- Dispatch Solutions
- Truck and Asset Tracking (with IIOT sensors)
- Employee Tracking
- Oil / Water Remote Field Operations Centers
Use maps from ESRI or Google.
Full support for adding interactive Points of Interest (POI) and zoom.
Add dynamic, real-time assigned color to represent things such as state or value.
Click a POI to trigger an action, such as map drill in, or context pop-up.
Asset Trees & Templates
Asset Modeling is a powerful concept for increasing the amount of “knowledge”, “context”, and “relationship” to any piece of data.
Use our built-in Template creator to define custom user data types and relationships and enable time and costs savings – from project creation to end user applications, business intelligence, and machine learning.
Easily tie those templates to an object, like a pump symbol, and everywhere you use that object ALL the related template context and data INSTANTLY comes with it, allowing you to rapidly build powerful applications for any need.
Visualize your asset structure in a familiar “file-tree” format and assign context and other data types to any item.
We also support a direct connection to OSIsoft’s PI & PI AF (Asset Framework) – allowing you to see and interact with your existing AF from within your projects easily.
Using Asset Trees helps ALL your end users get the data and understanding they need without having to know things like underlying PLC tag names and structures, or guessing at needed context, such as units on a number, or location of an asset.
Use our built-in diagnostic tools to help monitor the health of your communications, systems and network.
All diagnostic data is also available within your project via the tag namespace, making it nearly effortless to access and use this valuable information.
Information about your connections to networks, databases, and historians, as well as metadata about those items, in addition to your tasks, scripts, reports, and alarms can help you manage, trend, alert, and report on the health and performance of your systems.
Trigger notifications and alert the right people the first time and every time with our handy alarming and email functionality.
KPI Dashboard Tiles
With a KPI Dashboard Tile, whether overhead, on your phone, or at your desk, get a quick glance at the stats you need anytime.
Easily define KPI gauge color bands to quickly show when things are running great…or not.
Keep the entire team on the same page with how things are going, with just a glance.
Help foster friendly team competition by displaying multi-line stats in one overview.
Make it easy to spot who’s having a great run so you can congratulate them, or who’s in need of additional help to get up and running again.
A plant overview screen is a great way to keep a holistic view on your entire operation.
Whether for a global enterprise, or a single line at the plant, use an overview screen to see KPIs and view relevant information such as state and status.
Display relevant external data such as weather, traffic delays, and current utility energy costs.
Drill in for more details by clicking on areas of interest or data tiles.
Use drawings, real images, and even embed live camera feeds.
Great for NOCs and conference rooms.
Real-Time Performance Dashboard
Dashboards are a great way to keep a pulse on your plant(s) – especially when they are driven by real-time data.
FactoryStudio, powered by FrameworX, gives you the secure and reliable connections you need to any device, any database, any historian, any other system (such as ERP, CMMS, WMS, etc)
Help improve your business by bringing staff actionable information at a glance.
Quickly build tiles and charts to convey important real-time data. Even embed a sparkline chart in a data grid, giving you both current values and historical performance in one small and efficient location.
Our powerful and very customizable trend charts give you lots of options to build the types of content you need.
Multi-pen, historized annotations, and multi-axis options are just the start.
Build Simulators to view and interact with systems.
Great for training and digital twins to simulate real-life scenarios in a safe environment.
Help users get used to new controls, equipment, or changes to processes.
Connect to historical data to run through past situations for Root Cause Analysis.
Experiment with various combinations of settings to help identify the real drivers of performance and process control.
3D Interactive Images
Supporting 3D files gives you another level of interaction and context to your users.
Connect real-time tags to control properties in 3D models, such as turning things on and off, and seeing it updated automatically in your drawing.
Easily click to change camera views to gain another perspective.
Build simulations, train employees, or build an overview of where equipment is at currently.
Built on top of Microsoft’s WPF native graphics capability gives you outstanding “bare metal” performance for a great experience.
Machine Learning Integration
FactoryStudio supports machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) solutions via direct Code Behind, Scripting, and integration with external ML/AI solutions built with Python.
Build predictive and prescriptive maintenance and operations solutions to help keep your operators and supervisors as close to that “golden batch” / “golden run” as possible.
Use ML to pre-plan expected downtime, such as for a catalyst or heat exchanger.
Python and ML/AI integration are also featured in Tatsoft’s RIGDAP solution, built with FactoryStudio, in use for hundreds of wells worldwide, for customers such as Apache, Chevron, and Hess.
Easily create Pop-Ups or entire screens to appear when needed to help drill down for more info, or be taken to new areas.
Instead of just being flat, text-based pop-ups, FactoryStudio gives you all the same tools for a pop-up as for a full desktop screen – meaning you can make interacting with them intuitive and powerful.
In this example the map component has an interactive point of interest that opened the “Area” pop-up, which itself has a clickable area to be taken to the 3D view of the specific sub-area.
Great for providing extra functionality when and where you want it, and keeping it out of the way when you don’t.
Email, SMS, Voice Notifications
Sending alerts and reports are easy with our variety of Email, SMS (Text), and Voice (Text to Speech) Components.
Define when and to whom information should go, and send it on a schedule, like a report, or on demand from the push of a button.
Need to notify the maintenance group that a machine is down? Click!
Time to send that Shift Report to the manager? Click!
Want to ensure the daily report is sent out to the team? Well, you could click, but we’d recommend scheduling that one J
Whether you “say” it or send it you can be sure to get your message across.
