Data management as a part of your cybersecurity strategy
Data management as a part of your cybersecurity strategy
Coordinating data in the age of digitalisation presents a real challenge, especially where production facilities are concerned. The task of maintaining the many and varied components used in production also entails working with a wide variety of different software packages (editors)Each change that is made to the software results in a new version that has to be securely stored – versions need to be properly managed and there can only ever be one version that is the latest authorised version. But how can you make sure that all changes that were made to the software now running on the machine/device were authorised?

CodeMeter Protects Belsim's VALI Software
CodeMeter Protects Belsim's VALI Software
All industrial measurements are inaccurate and uncertain. As a consequence, a company never has rigorous information about its processes. What’s more, the real numbers about process performance may very well remain hidden in measurement noise. Belsim develops Data Validation & Reconciliation software that automatically corrects measurements in industrial processes. The VALI-suite is the result of many years of R&D and it represents the centerpiece of Belsim’s intellectual property.

ABB
As each mast section needs a total of 222 reliable welds, manufacturing them is an extremely labor intensive process.Until recently, STROS had to use highly skilled welders to make these sections. Although it has been using robots for 25 years, these machines could not manage the complex arc welds in narrow spaces needed for these particular components. Consequently, in order to produce a satisfactory number of mast sections it had to employ three welders per shift at three separate workstations to make these pieces. Apart from the obvious outlay this required in terms of manpower and space, STROS found it increasingly difficult to recruit the highly qualified welders needed for this work. That's why in 2007 the company decided to hold a tender for the complete robotization of its manufacturing process for mast sections. Of the four firms who participated, only the ABB group could fulfill all its requirements.
