Plant Systems Integration

Data Control & Archive
Data control, archive, and integration with plant systems plays a pivotal role in the ongoing success of test systems.

  • Accurate and reliable test data is the foundation of quality control and productivity improvement.
  • Comptek systems can be provided with various levels of redundancy to ensure the integrity and reliability of your manufacturing information.
  • Comptek systems can interface with various Plant Database systems such as SQL, Oracle, etc.

Central Data Servers
Comptek typically provides a Central Data Server (CDS) for manufacturing systems that have multiple computers in the facility which perform the same or similar assembly or test functions. The CDS can send test data to a central data server and/or print reports locally. This data can be archived locally and/or sent to a corporate database. The CDS also provides a common platform for support of the plant floor computers, providing programs for central editing of test configurations. To do this efficiently requires a central data server PC. The CDS requires that a Microsoft Windows operating system is installed on a RAID protected PC.

From the central data server many separate test systems can be maintained and monitored. Some of the features of a central data server include:

  • Test Specification creation, control, and distribution to all/individual test systems
  • Central Test Data storage
  • Central Reporting on Test Results
  • Automatic processing of results and Oracle uploads
  • Dynamic reporting of test status to internal/external websites
  • Domain control

Software:
To perform these tasks we've developed the Comptek Central Data Server software (ComCDS). This software is always matched to any supplied Comptek test system software that it will be communicating with. Requirements are simply a Microsoft Windows based PC and the system needs to be networked to each of the test cells by a pre-established corporate network or any network down to a simple functional work group.

Hardware:
Comptek recommends a RAID protected Windows Server PC to be used as a central data server. We can supply the PC and setup a sub domain if needed.

If your application needs to exchange data with another system, we can help.
