Project Scope

  • Approx. 10,000 tags eventually
  • Approx. 20 screens
  • Approx. 100 supported clients (desktop and tablet)
  • Approx. 30 devices
  • Standard Ignition Architecture (will move to cloud)

Project Overview

This project was a manufacturing operations management system created for aerospace research. The system was built using the standard Ignition product, without any third-party modules. The result was a data-rich, non-restrictive system. It was done with the Ignition Standard Architecture.

The solution includes tracking of pending work orders, current work orders, serial information, trends, OEE data, materials consumption, rejected material, tool selection, defects, and more. It also includes asset care, skill logging, technical instructions, and historical data.
