ATS Deploys Ignition for Shopfloor Supervision and Data Historian at Saint Gobain, a Global Manufacturing Corporation

Home/Success Stories/ATS Deploys Ignition for Shopfloor Supervision and Data Historian at Saint Gobain, a Global Manufacturing Corporation

Purpose

  • Replace an aging, obsolete and error prone Wonderware system with an Ignition based solution
  • Phased project while enabling it for present and future needs
  • Initially we lost the bid against their former Wonderware integrator so the bar was very high
Purpose

Project Scope

  • Shop floor supervision for the manufacturing plant (14 processes)
  • Process data logging including automatic and manual operator-entered data
  • Enable future phases (more functionality and interlocking with other Level 3 systems [Factivity])
Project scope

Solution Approach

  • Capture all the data generated, no matter the type or source
  • Implemented a modular solution using Ignition allowing for future phases
  • Implemented in a existing system while allowing to adopt a future different hardware / software architecture (redundancy, enterprise grade HW, SO independent)
Solution Approach

The Results

  • Streamlining data to a central data location
  • Data redundancy
  • Enable shopfloor supervision independently of location
  • A very happy customer and an opportunity for future projects worldwide (US) as Ignition is part of their strategy for supervision
Results

Systems, Tools & Services Expertise
