versiondog - Data management for production line engineers & equipment suppliers

Besides meeting the demand for higher and higher quality, production line engineers & equipment suppliers are also having to deal with rapidly increasing project complexity. Against this backdrop, the task of devising and maintaining a manual data-storage structure has become almost impossible. No matter how well thought out a system seems to be, confusion and lack of clarity can all too easily creep in. Further powerful arguments in favour of an effective data management system are heightened emphasis on IIoT technologies, the growing number of standard programming blocks and the importance of comprehensive process and delivery documentation. versiondog provides valuable support for production line engineers & equipment suppliers all the way from the project design phase to commissioning and customer acceptance.

Manual search becomes a relic

In the field of automated production, changes and improvements are made to production processes on a regular basis in order to maximise productivity, efficiency and product quality. However, changing the control programmes in this way is far from risk-free, and errors can occur at any time. To overcome this problem, intelligent data management systems are used to manage and protect key project data. By organising data absolutely transparently at a central storage location and enabling users to carry out predictive maintenance, the data management system helps to keep a plant fully operational.
