Linden Industries Inc. has added three software technologies based on its MicroProcessVu program, GlobalProcessVu, PlantProcessVu and remote monitoring. PlantProcessVu captures and analyzes data from all manufacturing processes throughout the factory. Through the program, process variance can be identified before impacting production; best processes can be identified, analyzed and shared; and real data is stored indefinitely, according to the company. GlobalProcessVu gathers data from multiple plants, enabling more accurate planning and ability to share best practices among sites. Remote monitoring allows maintenance personnel and process engineers to be notified of problems by pager or personal digital assistants. Knowing the exact nature of the problem helps troubleshooters judge the severity of the problem and gather the necessary tools and replacement parts on their way to the line.For more information, contact Theron Sherman by phone at 330-928-4064; fax at 330-928-1854; or e-mail [email protected] lindenindustries.com.
