Nowadays process data acquisition in automated installations is essential for efficient fault diagnosis during development and commissioning, but also for quality assurance, optimization and documentation. Classical solutions for monitoring of real-time PLC (programmable logic controller) devices lack flexibility and sampling resolution. Therefore this… (More)
The aim of the project OMSIS is the creation of an integrated test and simulation environment for validating the correct functionality of control entities (PLC, MES, etc.). When developing customer-specific automated equipment, simulation is often the only option to test the control software before commissioning. It also allows system engineers migrating… (More)
Currently many companies that deliver automation equipment intend to grade up their products by providing enhanced e-services like remote maintenance, remote diagnosis or remote consulting. Software agents are an adequate approach to realize these tasks, however, available agent frameworks lack satisfactory support for this domain. In this paper we present… (More)
The following tool helps the troubleshooters in factories. It records time-dependent operations and makes these visibly. It offers methods to abstraction and helps to find anomalies.
