The machine manufacturing industry maintains a competitive advantage

fierce, which is the only word to describe today's machine manufacturing industry environment. To survive in today's market, enterprises should deliver goods on time, have innovative solutions to solve customer problems and low life cycle costs, and comply with relevant government regulations. Time, money and productivity are more important than ever. The survival of enterprises depends on whether they can take a lead in the competition

machine manufacturers and end users usually face several very important aspects, including:

shortening the time to market

in any machine design project, writing the control program of a complete set of machines is a work that consumes a lot of time and money. In order for the machine to complete all its functions, the code of each machine operation must be written. In addition, each machine must communicate with the upstream and downstream of the production line, and the production line must transmit information from the factory to the enterprise system. The consistency and efficiency of specific codes may vary greatly, which increases the probability of unexpected errors and prolongs the time of program adjustment. In not all cases, manufacturers adopt the optimal development method - which makes it more difficult to train machine operators to understand various operations. At the same time, customers have higher and higher requirements for flexibility. They hope that the code can be modified quickly and simply, and their requirements for accuracy are also increasing. Coupled with the ever shortening design cycle, machine manufacturers are forced to seek ways to maximize efficiency

provide standards and adopt specifications

every manufacturer with machines purchased from multiple suppliers values programming standards and specifications, such as S88 required for batch processing, S95 required for process control, and iec-61131 required for automatic control. Machine manufacturers should meet the requirements of manufacturers, build seamless interfaces with various standards, and realize simple docking with machines. Automation suppliers that provide solutions that help simplify this integration process can enable machine manufacturers to focus on the specific requirements of machines

slimming operations

today's economic environment requires companies to find ways to reduce costs. They must eliminate inefficiency and carry out slimming operations. In response to this requirement, machine manufacturers are reducing expenditure by controlling the time cost of design, and manufacturing scalable machines to meet the continuously changing speed and design requirements. The value of opportunities to realize resource reuse may be incalculable. In order to reduce costs, manufacturers have been looking for equipment with short downtime and low requirements for plant resources. They hope to find a system that meets domestic and international standards and has low replication costs. The system must be reliable after it is put into use. No manufacturer can afford the long-term shutdown of the production line. They hope that the machine manufacturer can provide reliable and consistent codes to maintain the normal operation of the production line

facing regulatory pressure

the law has many requirements for factory automation, and each industry must consider the corresponding regulations. For manufacturers who are responsible for providing machines that meet the requirements of the corresponding regulations and operate seamlessly in the upper level system, this is a very heavy work. Machine manufacturers can no longer afford to hire resident "experts" to meet the legal requirements. They need to "slim down" to survive. In order to maintain competitive advantage, many manufacturers have no choice but to seek external professional experience

many vendors have adopted programming standards that address specific problems. However, these solutions do not consider the requirements of the whole system. In this way, they provide only small-scale and discontinuous improvements. Rockwell Automation considers the requirements of all aspects and aims to solve the problem as a whole

Rockwell Automation understands the difficulties faced by machine manufacturers and end users in solving these problems and coordinating their operations, and makes full use of the company's vast resources and product breadth to develop solutions. Power programming uses professional experience that machine manufacturers find increasingly difficult to maintain in the enterprise. OEM manufacturers and end users can benefit from it, and in most cases, one side can experience the functional value provided by power programming, and the other side can also benefit. This provides machine manufacturers and end users with many unique functions that can no longer meet the needs of aviation development by relying on the feeling of test pilots alone, including:

improving design efficiency

power programming is an integrated and modular application development method, which can reduce the cost of adopting new programs and improve the efficiency of programming at the same time. Using and reusing code modules based on standardized programming methods and models can directly shorten the design time required for the project. Rapid program development begins with the status module used to create functional specifications. Using the same specification document in the whole process greatly reduces the paperwork of the project. For machine manufacturers, standardized tools and programming concepts can speed up development and installation and improve the reuse of development investment. For end users, this means that better and more reliable machines can be obtained faster

simplify on-site maintenance

because the concept and code adopt the same program structure, it is bound to simplify maintenance and troubleshooting. The information is consistent, just where you expect it to be. The appearance and feel of the program are the same, which can greatly accelerate the speed of customer training and reduce the difficulty of training, and then turn into the ability to use intuition to solve problems. Imagine this situation: the operator tells you that the machine is stuck in standby mode, and you immediately know where to solve the problem. The simplification of troubleshooting process is directly related to cost reduction. Every manufacturer understands the benefits of improved utilization and overall quality

able to build scalable systems

machine manufacturers can get rich returns by investing in complex machines that can build simple machines with universal interfaces and maintenance operations. Standardized programming methods researchers believe that programs that give machine operators and manufacturers the same look and feel. The scalable program uses the same general model, so adding new shafts doesn't have to start from scratch. For example, the program of the packing machine or the packing machine has the same structure, so you always know where to find the required information. This minimizes the training required for different parts of the operating system

enhance the ability to obtain production and diagnostic information

power programming provides effective interoperability across the entire plant for the rapid integration of enterprise and asset management systems, whether it is a machine, a batch system, or different equipment. Users can intuitively know where the handle is, what should be replaced, and which are part of the mistakes in the enterprise talent introduction policy of the standard model. The code can be easily applied to different systems 3 The commercialization cost of all vanadium flow batteries faces major challenges, thereby simplifying the integration work. The built-in standardized concept and format can explore greater value for customers and benefit machine manufacturers

Rockwell Automation adopts a single automatic control platform designed according to the current open standards to help machine manufacturers improve their competitiveness. Using tag based modular data can write more intelligent system programs. The operation of the program is not only based on what the control system must do, but also based on the information that customers want to obtain from the system. Rockwell software factorytalk? The data model can promote the sharing of tag information within the whole enterprise and outside the supply chain. This data model is built into Allen Bradley Logix5000 series controller, PanelView plus operation interface and software used in VersaView industrial computer. Factorytalk provides a tag library that enables manufacturers to maximize efficiency when designing the

control and visualization system of machines. In addition, this practice provides manufacturers with important difference factors, so that the machine can feed back important information to the customer's enterprise system
