Data management for automated production
Compatible with

Documentation compliant with ISO 900x, FDA 21 CFR 11, GAMP, VDA 6.x, and much more Key building block for  Industry 4.0.

Change Management for PLCs, CNCs, SCADA systems, HMIs, robots, drives and field devices.

The challenges in automated production

  • A large number of networked and non-networked devices and controllers need to be regularly backed up.
  • Multiple shifts result in lack of personnel continuity.
  • Internal and external staff frequently make changes to device programs while commissioning, maintaining and optimising production lines.
  • Changes to a wide range of different programmable devices need to be properly documented   (a process that is prone to error and omission if done manually).
  • Quality-relevant setpoints and parameters need to be both monitored for changes and easily restorable.
  • Company-wide technical standards need to be introduced and maintained and ways need to be found  to check – preferably online – that these are being adhered to by all internal and external personnel.

Essential prerequisites for a smart data management system

  • The released version of all device program projects must at all times be centrally available, and it must be easily accessible for fast disaster recovery.
  • The system must be able to verify that the version of a program running on a device is the same as the released version on the server, and send an alarm if it is not.
  • Comparisons must be possible between all versions, right back to the base version (Life-Cycle Management) so that the right version can always be located or setpoints and parameters recovered.
  • WHO changed WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and WHY must be clear at all times (change history).
  • Automated backups must be possible via the network, but there also has to be a solution for   non-networked devices.
  • A mechanism must exist to distribute and monitor company standards, including across multiple sites.
  • The system must be able to ensure that staff adhere to quality management standards, such as ISO 900x, FDA 21 CFR 11, GxP, VDA 6.x.

Automated backup

versiondog not only runs regular automated backups, it can even make detailed comparisons between the online program and the offline project. That means you can be certain that your automated device programs are current and correct. You always know exactly what version is running in production, and setpoints and parameters can be checked and restored if necessary at any time.
