Additional FIT - Factory Integrating Tool - modules

fit-zusatzmoduleAdditional modules and options for FIT-WebDNC, FIT-WebMDE, FIT-WebMES, FIT-CapaTool and FIT-AnalyseTool

FIT-NC-Editor

The FIT-NC-Editor offers the NC programmer the possibility to compare original NC programmes and those optimised by the machine in the FIT-HI-WebMenu. Modifications are marked accordingly. The user can also re-number the NC programme for comparison, rename the upload NC programme to the original, copy lines or blocks back and forth between the NC programmes or add additional lines. For the operator at the machine, the FIT-HI-DNC user interface provides the possibility of comparing an original and uploaded data set.

FIT-ERPConnect

So that production orders can be transferred from the superimposed PPS/ERP systems to the FIT-WebMES solution as sequences of operations and be released through corresponding activity messages, FIT-ERPConnect offers the possibility of communication with these solutions. FIT-ERPConnect offers various possibilities for communication, i.e. text files, database exchange tables or PP-PDC. Connections to different systems are already successfully in use (SAP, Baan, PSI Penta, Navision, ProAlpha and many more). The corresponding messages and settlements with the PPS/ERP systems can be take place online or according to a schedule (i.e. hourly, every half day or once per day).

FIT-CAMIntegrator

The configurable FIT-CAMIntegrator, which directly stores them, is available to connect and automatically transfer data created by CAM systems to the FIT-Parts Data Management, such as NC programmes, tooling sheets, tool lists or clamping plans. The storage of parts information also provides the opportunity for updates to a part's data set as well as version control. Automated importing of old data from data in existing management structures is also supported.

FIT-Excel-Live!

FIT-Excel-Live! Integration offers the possibility of exporting database information selected via search criteria from the FIT-HI-WebMenu extension directly into an Excel file and to edit it there. Saving then automatically updates these data in the database. This function is ideal for mass data changes.

FIT-HI

The FIT-HI modules are a variety of web-based user interfaces optimised for the corresponding users. Licensing is via a Concurrent User licence for all FIT-HI modules. That means that the number of licences required is equal to the number of FIT-HI interfaces active at the same time. The following FIT-HI user interfaces are available:

  • FIT-HI-WebMenu
    For users in AV or NC programming. User-controlled access to all information and data sets with the corresponding connections to the various FIT modules such as workplace data, parts data, order data, time data or personnel data. Various search criteria can be used to find, select and visualise data. Events are logged and documented.

  • FIT-HI-WebMenu-InfoCenter
    Online overview of all current statuses of all connected workplaces in production. The overview can be represented in list form or in a graphical hall layout. The graphical hall layout requires a background picture of the actual hall layout in which pictures of the workplaces can be integrated and then used in the configuration to represent the current statuses of the workplace in the layout (preparation, production, fault, etc.). Clicking on a workplace displays further information about its status and event history. This gives every user a constant online overview of production.

  • FIT-HI-DNC
    The simple web-based FIT-WebDNC interface for operators to request and view parts data such as NC programmes, clamping plans, tool lists or drawings. The NC programmes and nominal tool data can be transferred to the controls via a single button. Optimised or workshop-programmed NC programs can be transferred back to FIT and managed there. The configuration controls which data and information are made available to the operator.

  • FIT-HI-MES
    The web-based user interface for all operators in production who frequently need to report activities for workplaces or orders. This FIT-HI module is used in combination with FIT-WebMDE, FIT-WebMES or as an extension to existing FIT-HI-DNC licences. Working steps or processes for production orders can be searched for and viewed using barcodes or manual entry. The user thereby receives all order information relevant to him and knows what the preceding or subsequent working steps are. Should additional documents be available alongside the order information, these can also be viewed. The configuration can be used to specifically assign the layout of the user interface and the activities and events to be reported for each workplace. Machine data statuses and DNC functionality can also be integrated.

  • FIT-HI-AnalyseTool
    This user interface for the FIT-AnalyseTool allows the selection criteria for standard assessments to be established for each workplace or group, department, site or by date and time period and to then visualise these in various ways (list, bar or pie chart, Pareto). These diagrams can then be printed directly or the underlying data can be output as a CSV file.

FIT-MI

The software-based connection to machine controls. FIT-MI supports various interfaces for the two-way transfer of NC programmes, tool data and machine statuses:

  • DNC
  • LAN network
  • serially via additional hardware Com-Server++
  • Protocol-based for Mazak Mazatrol Format (LAN and serial)
  • MDC (machine data collection)
  • Digital signals via Web-IO
  • Software-based control specifically for Siemens 840D (RPC) or Okuma
  • Java API for Siemens S7 controls
  • OPC UA for all controls which support it

Every connected machine requires a FIT-MI licence to communicate with the corresponding FIT modules.
