Enterprise Historian on Windows NT for Advant MOD 300 DCS

Migration and support for ABB Enterprise Historian, a Windows NT-based software suite for Advant MOD 300 DCS managing historical and real-time process data.

Enterprise Historian is a suite of software for managing historical and real-time process/production information, and integrating your various enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing execution, and automation systems. Information management/integration capabilities include:

• collection and storage of historical process and production data
• presentation of process and production information via reports and displays
• data distribution

Data can be physically stored in several computers and databases; however, to the end-user it appears as if all data are stored in one database. Likewise, applications and tools can be executed in several computers; however, to the end user it appears as if all applications are executed in one computer. 

This gives you up-to-the-minute production information from yesterday, last month, or even years ago; the type of information needed to manage your production. You can leverage your existing investments by simply integrating Enterprise Historian software into your current Advant Open Control System (OCS) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

Enterprise Historian is based on leading-edge IT open architecture, which includes plant based, component based, three-tiered, and distributed networks.
