Automation

Transform your production lines with the design solutions by Onit for process automation and logistic handling. Monitor your machines through a single integrated system and make your production capacity more efficient.

WCS Automation Projects

The automation projects designed by Onit Group aim to maximize the productivity of logistics and process automatic systems thanks to WCS, the web software module for execution and supervision of all the factory activities. The system manages different automatic storage and handling equipment and through the integrated supervision of the automatic system allows the user to visualize the ongoing activities and any faults along the entire layout, checking in real time all the entities of the factory (product, machinery, devices, trolleys, operators, etc.)

Automation Workflow

Features

REAL-TIME PLANT MONITORING
The system WCS, through a simple and immediate user interface, supports the operator in the management of an automation system: from the retrieval of operation data from the field devices to the signalling of fault and/or alarm situations.
SENDING DIRECTIVES TO MACHINES
On.Plant/WCS facilitates the execution of an automated process: performs a business request from a system of the highest level by sending directives to automatic subsystems, coordinating their execution in an efficient and reliable way.
ALARM RECOVERY AND HISTORY
The module for the management of alarms allows operators to detect and consult in real time anomalous situations that may occur on a single automation system or at factory level: from faults generated by the field devices to reports related to the automated process.
CUSTOMIZED SOLUTION
The system can be highly customized in order to fulfil the specific automation need of the customer. Vertical solutions are possible with implementation of the supervision system, programming of field device (PLC, survey sheets …) and development of HMI interfaces.
INTEGRATED COMMUNICATION DRIVERS: OPC, MODBUS,S7 SIEMENS
On.Plant/WCS offers the communication interfaces for the most important bus field used in the industry: it is possible to realize solutions based on the latest standards such as OPC UA, as well as to adopt own procedures of the specific vendor.
