Typical applications

MB Software Data Suite 3 - Anwendungen Schraubenhersteller

Case

Until now, production data had to be entered manually into the ERP system. In order to always have an overview of the order status in production and to reduce manual, error-prone activities, the machines and plants are to be connected directly to the ERP system. However, the ERP software used does not offer the option of retrieving data directly from the machines and plants.

Solution with DataSuite 3

  • Read out the production data from the machines and plants and write it into a CSV file
  • ERP system can import CSV files and reads in the file automatically – The production data is available in ERP


Result

  • PLC programmers can compile the necessary data for the CSV files without major detours and program changes to the PLC
  • A simple, cost-effective solution without special technical requirements

MB Software Data Suite 3 Flugzeugbau Anwendungen


Case

Especially older testing systems can only display and print out the measured values for the material and component tests. Therefore, the values have to be read manually and the printouts have to be laboriously typed into Excel.


Solution with DataSuite 3

  • Automatic data entry into an Excel spreadsheet


Result

  • Fewer errors and great time savings

MB Software Data Suite 3 Anwendungen Automation

Case

Complex and high-quality machines are used in production. These can be optimally adjusted thanks to many setting parameters. But this also makes it costly in the case of recipe changes.
 


Solution with DataSuite 3

  • Settings are loaded into the machine from a USB stick or network drive at the touch of a button


Result

  • Provision of presettings as Excel file for customers
  • Resetting to original settings is possible without complications
  • Flexibility and independence from TIA Portal and other Siemens products

MB Software Data Suite 3 Anwendung Drucken

Case

A report is to be printed for each manufactured part, which is to be signed by the machine operator.
 

Solution with DataSuite 3

  • Create print templates with a customized Excel file
    Set protocol data in DataSuite 3
  • Set protocol data in DataSuite 3
  • Automatically print Excel file on connected printer


Result

  • Easy printing of quality protocols on self-designed Excel template

MB Software Data Suite 3 Einzelfertigung Anwendung

Case

In make-to-order production, the requests for integrated data solutions, such as ERP connection or PDF protocol exports, are increasing. To remain competitive, a universal solution is needed that can also be used quickly and easily by PLC programmers.
 

Solution with DataSuite 3

  • DataSuite 3 is a Swiss army knife
  • Intuitively operable for PLC programmer and customer


Result

  • Competitiveness through universal software solution
  • Software integration for PLC programmers easily possible


Case

Within the scope of ISO standards and audits, IT security must be given. Production orders are to be loaded from the ERP system directly into the machine. And the produced parts should be automatically reported back to the ERP system. Unfortunately, however, the ERP provider does not offer a secure machine connection or the options offered are very expensive.
 


Solution with DataSuite 3

  • Load and retrieve data to and from the machine with a secure OPC-UA connection


Result

  • ISO standards and audits compliant import and export of machine data
  • Cost-effective and good software solution for ERP connection

MB Software Data Suite 3 Maschinenhersteller Anwendung

Case

The machines are to be equipped with an Excel export function to provide the customer with a simple evaluation option for the parts produced. This increases the value of the machines for the customers.
 


Solution with DataSuite 3

  • With DataSuite 3, evaluations of machine data are simple and automated
  • With the white labeling function even the logo of the customer can be on the evaluations


Result

  • Uniform solution for individual small series
  • Increase in value of the machines
  • Increase of reputation as a machine builder

MB Software Data Suite 3 Daten sammeln

Case

QA needs evaluations of tool wear in order to be able to plan and carry out predictive maintenance. However, a great deal of machine data must be collected for this purpose.

Solution with DataSuite 3

  • Block trigger and performance mode for storing large amounts of data


Result

  • Uncomplicated and fast saving of large amounts of data in Excel
