R.E.R.’s InFocus software suite is designed for improving shop floor operations efficiency, and for planning and oversight of work. The product suite includes three main solutions, two of which address machine monitoring: AutoTrack and SmartAlert. AutoTrack captures an unlimited amount of machine production data as well as quality data, presents real-time production data and historical information, and features reporting, job tracking and operations analysis. SmartAlert is a condition monitoring module which is capable of monitoring one or many conditions in real-time.
R.E.R. also offers AutoPlan, a manufacturing execution system which does what Microsoft Project can do with one job, but handles the entire resource base and workload of a company. When combined with AutoTrack, AutoPlan constantly communicates with all equipment in real-time, logging hours to each task automatically.
SmartAlert is the InFocus framework for the automation of a given criteria to a dynamic response. This condition monitoring software works via PLC data, sensors or R.E.R.'s IIoT device. It can be used as the basis for preventive maintenance and includes a notification system to send email or text message alerts based on simple or complex criteria. As an example of an alert based on complex criteria, a plant owner may wish to be notified when the feed-rate override percentage of a machine drops below 90% (1st condition), for X number of minutes (2nd condition), while using a specific tool (3rd condition) for any machine, or for a specific machine (that specific machine would be the 4th condition).
