Autonomous process monitoring

Autonomous monitoring of processes and alarming in case of malfunctions

Process monitoring to minimize downtimes

Process monitoring refers to the continuous monitoring and control of business processes in a company. By using special monitoring tools and systems, various parameters and metrics can be recorded in order to evaluate the efficiency and quality of processes. This allows potential bottlenecks, errors or inefficient process steps to be identified at an early stage and appropriate measures to be taken. Process monitoring enables companies to continuously implement improvement measures and increase their performance and competitiveness. It therefore makes a significant contribution to the effectiveness and efficiency of operational processes and supports the continuous development of the company.

Processes must function smoothly. Downtimes must be minimized. For continuous processes, failures are often associated with very high follow-up costs. Process monitoring is important for a flawless product so that the required product quality is maintained. The following are typically used for these process monitoring tasks ProfiMessage and Expert devices are used. The combination of analog and digital inputs with the option of also recording process data via PROFIBUS, ModBus and OPC is an ideal solution for process monitoring. Limit value violations are recorded and reported directly by the devices, independently of the PC. These are also displayed in the alarm list. The data is stored permanently in the ProfiSignal database.

Application highlights of process monitoring

  • Independent recording and monitoring of an unlimited number of channels
  • PROFIBUS, ModBus, OPC interfaces
  • Alarm database with alarm and event list
  • Fault message via e-mail, SMS and switching outputs
  • DataService databases for continuous or batch-related storage

Practical example of process monitoring

Monitoring of firing processes

A manufacturer of piezo ceramics monitors its firing process with the help of message devices and a ProfiSignal application. Recording of the firing processes is started individually and automatically for each kiln and each batch as soon as a limit temperature of 100 °C is exceeded. A three-part overview diagram shows the status of all kilns and also allows quick access to detailed information about each individual kiln. An online trend can be displayed for each firing process. All data is archived on a server for each batch. Recording and monitoring is stopped as soon as the temperature falls below 90 °C again. All previous batch logs can be accessed from any workstation.

Typical areas of application
