INVENTORY CONTROL SYSTEM

Inventory Control System

What is the Inventory Control System?

The Inventory Control System (ICS) collects and logs production information from all TSM blenders connected to the system. The ICS is a powerful tool for viewing current and historic data generated by TSM blenders across the plant. It also stores information collected on a SQL database located on a central dedicated PC. The ICS can then use the data stored on the database to produce any custom report containing the stored data.

 

Features

  • Ability to view any individual TSM Blender on the system
  • View the current status of any TSM Blender or a number of blenders
  • View historic status of any TSM Blender on the system
  • View alarms on any TSM blender attached to the system
  • View production information collected from any TSM blender connected to the system.
  • ICS collects and logs production information from all TSM blenders connected to the system
  • ICS stores information collected on an SQL database.
  • The ICS can use the data stored on the database to produce any custom report containing the stored data.

 

Requirements.

For the ICS server spec, we recommend:

  • Windows 7 PRO or newer (32 bit or 64 bit)
  • 2 Ghz+Dual core processor
  • Min 4GB RAM
  • Min 100GB HDD+; the ICS logs data to a MySQL database, so over time it will need more space. 100GB should be plenty for now.

 

Notes:

  • The ICS server must be a dedicated PC for running the ICS – it must not be used as a workstation for accessing email, internet or running other software.
  • The PC must have a network connection to the TSM blenders.
  • The ICS server must have internet access to enable remote support.
  • The customer must be willing to have remote access software installed on it so that the software can be supported remotely.
  • The customer should inform TSM of the IP addresses to be used for the TSM blenders, and the names/descriptions (line no, extruder no, etc) to be used for identifying the blenders in the software.
