The real-time visual factory-information system provides a view of what is happening at every stage of the manufacturing process, the vendor said. Presenting activity from a variety of systems, SyncView automatically signals alerts and generates escalation and action plans to help users address any quality issues in real time. The software interacts with user-directed views, aiding in the management of variability and constraints while monitoring machines and work cells. In a related development, Synchrono has launched SyncOperations, software that allows manufacturers to monitor and synchronize data from all equipment and processes in real time. The result, the vendor claimed, is faster automation of workflow and the ability instantly to track and improve performance, availability and quality. SyncOperations acts as a real-time data “historian,” collecting and analyzing data from both the machine level and disparate company systems.
