ATS Deploys Ignition for Shopfloor Supervision and Data Historian for leading Glass Manufacturer


  • 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

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])

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)

Systems & Tools

  • Ignition by Inductive Automation

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
