To date, the management software and those on the machinery have not walked on parallel tracks. While office software followed the development of traditional operating systems with Windows or Unix, the PLCs of the machines developed with proprietary operating systems not suitable for interconnection with traditional systems. This led to the creation of technicians with distinct professional paths that poorly interfaced with each other. It is no coincidence that in many companies you can still see PCs where the operator enters the production data of the machines “by hand”, ignoring the thousands of information that the machine could send directly and in real time to the management system.
A picture emerges which reveals the poor functionality of the machines and it is them that complain about it or rather the work-quality relationship.
Lately, however, thanks to tax incentives and the technological development of the electronic devices that are mounted on the machinery, the sensitivity to improve the development of this sector is increasing.
We at AFD in collaboration with Infosigi, a company that develops tailor-made MES, have created PAPERTRACE a software capable of translating data, which arrive from the machine, into a language understandable for the production, administrative or assistance manager.
We are not just a technology supplier but above all, we listen to and implement the ideas of entrepreneurs that look ahead
