Project Manager Anders Andersson is keen to point out the value of System 800xA Smart Client. This is a System 800xA function that allows access to process automation system data wherever an operator (or other authorized employee) is stationed and whenever it is needed. Before System 800xA, this was only possible by scanning a variety of different systems, which was time-consuming and prone to manual error. Now, for example, Smart Client quickly identifies alarms and bottlenecks in the system, giving operators the opportunity to act quickly and efficiently.
“By using Smart Client, we can easily access process-specific data on the computers in our offices,” Anders enthuses. “Our ultimate goal is to integrate our business systems, weighing systems and laboratory systems with System 800xA.” Bearing in mind the enormous integration capabilities of System 800xA, this ambition should not be difficult to realize.
