Siemens Industry Automation division has expanded its Simatic WinCC V7.2 Scada software with the optional WinCC/PerformanceMonitor package for calculating and analyzing plant-specific key performance indicators (KPIs). The user can derive optimization potential for production and measures for increasing productivity. Combining the results and accompanying values reveals correlations, such as product quality in relation to suppliers. The Simatic WinCC V7.2 Scada software supports the acquisition, visualization, and analysis of production data. Analysis with the new WinCC/PerformanceMonitor software package is based on the process data acquired by WinCC, which are associated with each other during runtime. The user quickly and simply sets up the calculation formulas to be used in WinCC, without any additional knowledge.
