Panorama IT deprecated
Panorama IT supplements the global enterprise information system and also provide MES (Manufacturing execution system) features. Supervising and controlling a plant involves two types of monitoring:
- Real-time monitoring, providing a snapshot of field operations at a specific point in time,
- Non real-time monitoring, providing a macroscopic view of the entire plant.
Panorama IT performs the latter function and provides MES solution features. It summarizes information concerning the overall plant status, providing:
- Operating reports and dashboards,
- Key indicators on energy consumption,
- Key indicators concerning performance, production, and maintenance.
Panorama IT receives raw data from the supervisor (e.g. Panorama E²) and performs the requested calculations. Processing requests and data IDs are sent to Panorama IT at the same time as the data itself. This enables Panorama IT to automatically discover new information and new processing to perform when updating the SCADA application.
You can also link several SCADA applications to a Panorama IT MES server, or vice-versa.
Data history and Processing
For a given data item, Panorama IT offers several types of archiving: data history, long-term archiving, statistics, counters, and alarm cycles. Data aggregation extracts information like counters offsets,acknowledgement delay, trends of a measure. Thus, it facilitates data presentation and storage optimisation. You can choose the appropriate type of archiving according to the information you need to extract and how long you wish to preserve the data. A plant can generate vast amounts of information. Panorama IT is designed to optimize your storage volumes and to enhance fast and simple searches.
Reporting as part of MES Solution
Once Panorama IT has aggregated your data, it remains available in the database for consultation using :
- Microsoft Excel,
- Internet Explorer and Reporting Services (using Microsoft SSRS),
- Microsoft Report Builder, or Visual Studio as a Reporting project for more complex applications,
- Any tool that can connect to a SQL Server Database.
You can use these tools to create summaries, plant overviews, reports, indicators (KPI), dashboards, operating reports, consumption tracking, and more generally energy performance. Those reports are keys of an efficient MES Solution.
Archives to Panorama IT tool
Since version 3 of Panorama IT, a new tool allows existing P² and E² archives to be recovered into a Panorama IT database. Thus, these archived values are easily and immediatly available in Panorama IT reports without modifying E² and P² application. Your Panorama E² and Panorama IT applications are your global SCADA and MES solution.
