Automation

We bring about automation by implementing technologies which

  • Improve reliability and consistency of output
  • Increase labour productivity
  • Reduce variable cost factor of operations
  • Allow greater clarity for making decisions

 Case Study

In 2011 AZc was selected to implement new SCADA reporting technologies on Unilever production lines in Durban, SA

  • Rockwell PLC technology was selected for running the factory floor
  • Rockwell SCADA technology was acquired for management reporting
  • 100’s of data tags were configured to be collected by a Historian Db
  • From this data, reports were compiled and displayed in VantagePoint
  • Middle management were empowered to create their own reports
  • Visibility of the manufacturing lines were greatly increased
  • This led to faster problem resolution and smoother operations all round
