Integrations

Explore how Idus CMMS can be integrated with other production systems.

HMI/SCADA

Idus can be integrated with all types of HMI/SCADA-systems. The integration can be done in two steps. The first step is to an integration to obtain condition based maintenance (CBM), meaning that reoccurring jobs are generated by actual operating data from the HMI/SCADA-system after a predefined interval. In practice, this means that a certain number of operating hours, a temperature or machine cycles are reached Idus will answer by generating a preconfigured work order. We work order can be preconfigured with instructions, material, and necessary documents.

 

We can integrate the systems so that a right click in the HMI/SCADA-system will show Idus commands such as fault report, work order, register a job or log an event etc.

ERP / Financial

Idus can be integrated with every ERP-systems. Idus keeps track of every operational costs but also the equipment value which is beneficial during audits. Idus can for example transfer material costs but also costs of worked hours and storage balances.

In practice this means that you don’t need to manually report costs in two separate systems and thus focusing on what is truly important, the daily operation.

OEE/MES

There are many benefits to obtain by integrating Idus with your OEE-system. Machine operators only have to use their support system and the maintenance department won’t need to manage to systems. A fault report is in the OEE-system can automatically be transferred to Idus where the mechanic after a carried-out measure can correct the fault report with the correct cause, measure and then report back necessary information so that the fault can be avoided. The fault causes can then be analyzed so that necessary conclusions can be drawn from the information in the maintenance system.  

 

Idus can also collect actual operating data from the OEE-system and allowing these values to trigger preconfigured work orders with instructions, material and necessary documents. Why guessing when maintenance can be based on actual condition and in that way gaining better overall equipment effectiveness.

Advanced planning

Planning and scheduling preventive maintenance measures often need to be planned together with the production department. By integrating Idus with your APS/Production planning-system you can visually and easily plan your maintenance activities during the windows which are optimal for the production department.

OPC/PLC

With the OPC-connection you can transfer values to your CMMS. From a PLC, other hardware sensors or SCADA system Idus can read analog or digital values such as operating hours and alarms from an OPC-connection.

In that way you would achieve an automated transfer of values for planning maintenance. The signals can for example trigger work orders or fault reports automatically. If this fault report represent a certain type of downtime cause you could use that data to analyze different downtime causes within your CMMS.

Idus Connection Suite

With Idus Connection Suite Idus will collect actual operating data and signals from your production process. Actual values might be operating hours, cycles or temperatures. This means that you don’t need to estimate when its time to carry out maintenance. Idus would tell you when the interval is reached. This is impendent of which SCADA/HMI-system you are using.

Condition based maintenance will reduce your stoppage time drastically and save you resources.

ICS is a direct link between Idus and your SCADA that lets you reach all maintenance functions directly from your process overview.

You would simply right click in your process overview which would open up a maintenance menu. By choosing any of the functions, fault report for example you would automatically be transferred to Idus fault report form.

Integrate Idus with your ERP

Within every CMMS it is important to keep track of inventory levels and which material that has reached it’s due value. The maintenance store can compose large amount of capital that needs to be accounted in the ERP.

Idus can transfer current stock values to the ERP by determined intervals, for example weekly or monthly.

If you would like to keep your purchasing routines and maintenance store within your ERP Idus can receive in deliveries and current stock values from the superordinate ERP. Idus can mirror the stock values that are available in the ERP.
