MES Upgrade


In the search for improved competitiveness in the Mining Industry application highlighted, IES Lean Systems Ltd. were commissioned to improve the information available to the company‚Äôs metallurgists. The existing Distributed Control System had MIS data facilities. However these had proven inadequate. The system could not be economically extended to provide the required capability so the decision was made to integrate a new MES layer product to the system. To achieve an effective solution ies added a SQL server to the DCS. The SQL Server provides a large historical operations database for production data and energy usage. This is used by the metallurgists to facilitate trouble shooting and OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency) improvement.  It provides comprehensive trending and standard and query language driven custom reports.
