Avoiding errors in process chains is crucial to productive, efficient manufacturing in every branch of industry. In particularly sensitive sectors – such as food products and pharmaceuticals, as well as the chemical and cosmetic industries – errors in the process chain can have huge and catastrophic consequences. For these sensitive branches in particular, ORDINAL from France has developed its COOX software to manage and monitor industrial manufacturing processes in real time, and is premiering it at HANNOVER MESSE 2014.
The COOX range is an integrated and modular Intranet solution for SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) and MES (manufacturing execution systems). The software enables access from any location within the company – with no particular hardware or installation requirements. And COOX covers every phase of production: it launches manufacturing tasks, manages processes, and oversees formulations and product ranges. COOX enables back-tracing of processes, shows product genealogy and controls material flows. Quality control, performance analysis and reporting are also part of the application package.
