- New Simatic MindApps for the open IoT operating system MindSphere
- Machine Monitor: Transparency for status and performance of machines
- Notifier: Message distributions from machines and access to alarm data
- Performance Monitor: Availability and productivity of the manufacturing facility
The new Simatic Machine Monitor MindApp creates transparency regarding status or performance of machines and enables services to be optimized. For this purpose the Machine Monitor monitors the operational and maintenance status of machines in view of their productivity, servicing and availability. With the new Simatic Notifier MindApp the user can visualize messages, for instance when the KPIs Key Performance Indicators of a monitored machine are undershot, and can also access alarm data from any location. The new app enables messages from different systems and sources, for example from a Scada system or other Simatic MindApps, to be collated worldwide in a central location and also enables alarms to be issued, for instance individually to the mobile device of a specific service technician. User-definable views allow customization of access to alarms and messages individually for a particular user and alarms to be filtered according to specific criteria, for instance. The focus of the new Simatic Performance Monitor MindApp is on improving availability and productivity of manufacturing facilities through higher transparency. By calculating and visualizing machine and system KPIs, the app provides users with valuable guidance in making decisions when optimizing machines and systems and this will improve their efficiency. KPIs can be defined and calculated, visualized and analyzed including historical data, and alarm thresholds and user-specific cockpit views can be determined. The Simatic Fleet Manager and Visual Analyzer MindApps are already available. These apps help users not only to connect their machines and systems to MindSphere, they also help them to configure, read out and visualize the relevant data for analysis. Further apps are being developed and will be available to the user soon.
