Maintenance efficiency – automated
Maintenance efficiency – automated
Egger Ltd at Hexham, Northumberland, UK, manufactures chip board and associated products on highly automated production lines. The programs within numerous manufacturing systems and controllers are vital to the resulting OEE of the company and require frequent back up, version control and automatic administration. Egger standardised on Versiondog software from SolutionsPT to undertake and manage this task.

Versiondog Comes for Coffee
“Well before it went live, we had worked out a clear plan for exactly how we were going to use the new versiondog versioning and data management software from AUVESY,” says Michael Mrugalla, who works in process automation at the Mainz plant. “We also had to think about what backups really meant for us. With all our field devices, control programs, drive systems, programming languages, file formats and software applications, we needed to know precisely what we have to back up in case a breakdown (e.g. a power outage) stops production. Because the whole point of making a backup is to be able to recover data quickly and easily when something goes wrong and continue working as if nothing had happened. But that means more than simply restarting production, it also means we need to be able to pick up where we left off with our ongoing process maintenance and optimisation.”It was particularly important to Nestlé that their backup strategy be built around a sin-gle continually active and universally appli-cable solution. And they wanted it to maintain a centralised backup of all the data necessary for both recovery and further development for all devices and all related projects (i.e. every piece of hardware and software). And the programs actually running on controllers need to correspond precisely with the data on the server. If not, the reason must be easily identifiable and the valid version always available to be reloaded onto the device.

Cisco Connected Real Estate for Healthcare
Cisco Connected Real Estate for Healthcare
Today’s healthcare executives encounter new challenges to providing quality healthcare within their budgets. The world's growing population is increasingly moving back into cities. And governments around the globe are mandating energy savings. This impacts healthcare facilities disproportionately because healthcare buildings use three to four times the energy of a typical building with the high consumption of clinical and business equipment running around the clock. At the same time, the cost of care is rising, a result of advances in the tools, treatments, and techniques used to prevent and cure disease. And yet the financial resources available for health services are limited, even in the richest nations. Hospital administrators must therefore grapple with the need to maintain or increase care levels without increasing budgets. This requires new ways of working, using labor-saving technology and more efficient workflows, and better ways to get the most out of facilities investments.

SickKids Foundation improves the donor experience and efficiency with Cisco
SickKids Foundation is the largest charitable funder of child health research, learning, and care in Canada after the government. The foundation’s contact center helps raise funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children (also known as SickKids), receiving contributions from more than 232,000 donors annually. The foundation’s aging network and phone system were unable to keep up with its needs, resulting in poor voice quality, dropped calls, and downtime. Contact center agents were unhappy at how hard it was to provide great service. There were also concerns about how network and system disruptions may have impacted donations.• Ensure high-quality experiences for donors and agents• Improve the first-contact resolution with donors• Measure donor experience with surveys and reports

Crossing the Atlantic to Argentina
Crossing the Atlantic to Argentina
Between 2005 and 2010, Aluar went through a substantial growth phase where most of the production facilities were upgraded. As a result of this expansion, the number of PLCs increased from 100 to 300. When it came to managing the control program software, however, flaws and cracks began to show in the established workflow and version control procedures that had prior to the growth phase, been based on manual backups and documentation. A rapid growth in the number of automation and maintenance staff (>100 users) also coincided with increasing accounts of infrequent and incomplete documentation of software versions, which then required an increasing effort where bug tracing and detection were concerned. This increased the risk of incidents that could not only affect operation, but that could also result in stoppages at the mid-term. It also increased the risk of safety risks remaining undetected.

Revolutionary Care When and Where it is needed
VITAS sees mobile technology as the key to better connecting patients and caregivers. “Mobile technology will allow us to communicate information and route caregivers quickly and efficiently,” says Patrick Hale, senior vice-president and CIO at VITAS. “But before attempting revolutionary work, we needed to lay down the infrastructure.”Due to fast growth, the company lacked a strong, consolidated network. By standardizing on Cisco network and communication solutions, VITAS gains the stability and visibility that it needs to introduce new applications that bring together patients, families, and top-quality healthcare services.
