How does this help optimize your enterprise? Now you can integrate your production control system readily with the maintenance system so the the equipment proactively generates work orders. The production control system delivers inventory information to suppliers for inventory management and plant scheduling. Production scheduling is automated, with the ERP system delivering production schedules and quotas to the production control system: all using the same drag-and- drop interface using an off-the-shelf XML transaction engine.
Many transaction manager software packages are available today such as WebMethods, BizTalk, DataJunction and others.
BizTalk also includes software for routing events to email, pagers, personal organizers and SMS cell phones. With XP windows, these XML transactions can be routed in to the Windows Messenger for integration with your Passport (a Microsoft Windows XP application for sending you information when you need it where you need it!).
The DeltaV system
Microsoft Biztalk maps predictive maintenance alerts to the Maintenance Management software.
