SCADA has KPI calculation and analysis abilities

21 January 2014

Siemens Industry has expanded the Simatic WinCC V7.2 SCADA software with the optional WinCC/PerformanceMonitor package for calculating and analysing plant-specific key performance indicators (KPIs). 

This expansion enables users to achieve optimisation potential for production and measures for increasing productivity, as combining results and accompanying values can reveal correlations, such as product quality in relation to suppliers.
 
Analysis with the new software package is based on the process data acquired by the SCADA systme, which is associated during runtime. The user is able to set up calculation formulas for use in WinCC, without needing any additional knowledge.
 
Several visualisations are possible for evaluation – a Gantt chart with the time sequence of states, a bar chart for analysing key performance indicators and a table for states and accompanying values. Visualisations are also available via the web in the WinCC WebNavigatorClient. 

The calculated key performance indicators can also be processed in a WinCC display, for example a line-dashboard, or in a trend display.
