Summary of IPA Workshops 2019

This year workshops is the 17th edition of the training workshops for authorized Asix Platform Integrators. In the care for the high quality of services provided, it is a permanent element inscribed in the timetable of companies with IPA status. This year we had the pleasure to host the representatives of 50 companies from all over Poland in Hotel Witek near Krakow, on May 23-24.

We started the first day of the workshop by visiting Krakow. Although the weather unfortunately was not good, Krakow and participants did not disappoint us. We managed to realise the planned, though slightly reduced, tour program, ... and the city as always, regardless of the weather, still impresses tourists and arises admiration for centuries.

In the late afternoon a training panel was held, covering the presentation of a new solution - soon offered by ASKOM: Asix OEE system. The current solution is in the final phase of implementation. This advanced tool developed on the basis of many years of experience of ASKOM in the implementation of industrial automation systems is aimed at the market needs of the industrial IT systems in the field of monitoring the efficiency of machines and production lines. The advantage of the offered solution is its form so that it can be used to quickly build universal applications to control the operation of devices, with the possibility of calculating and visualizing the performance indicators of machines and production lines. Asix OEE allows for a phased implementation of the solution depending on the degree of measurement of machines: OE version (machine availability analysis), OEE version (analysis of machine operation efficiency based on full OEE indicator), Pareto version (analysis of causes of detentions and discards in accordance with the "Pareto" principle). In Asix OEE, the complete set of calculated-to-date key performance indicators KPI has implemented, which measures the degree of utilization of production equipment: OEE, OE quality of manufactured products, MTTR (mean time to repair), MTTF (MTBF) MTBF (mean time between failures ), the current amount of products produced, the current amount of production waste. Users of the Asix OEE system receive a friendly interface presenting measurements and KPIs in the form of: KPI business cards, measures, Gantt diagrams, time charts, category charts. Asix OEE also includes a predefined set of reports to document the work of machines and production efficiency indicators.

The Friday session of the workshops began with a presentation devoted to Asix Energy. It is a system dedicated to monitoring of energy carriers in production plants and it enables the rapid construction of universal applications for effective management of energy consumption. Over a quarter century of implementation of computer control, monitoring and production management systems in power industry and other industries by ASKOM certifies the value of this ssytem. Asix Energy allows you to control of any kind of energy carriers, including: electric energy; natural gas / coal gas; high and low pressure compressed air, vacuum; technical gases (hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, argon, ...); heat; sportable water, industrial water and sewage; ventilation and air conditioning, chilled water.

IPA Workshops it is also an important moment to make a summary of the whole last year ASKOM and IPA Partner Companies cooperation. Acknowledgment for the next year of sale and development of Asix, which resulted in: the release of a new version of Asix software, increase in sale of Asix licenses and the expansion of the Integrator group, preceded the ceremony of honoring with awards the representatives of companies that stood out in the sale and implementation of the Asix platform:
- the award for the highest sales of the Asix licences in 2018 went to REDNT SA Katowice;
- the award for the highest sales of the Asix licences in 2018 (2nd place) went to Eltel Sp. z o. o. from Katowice;
- the award for a long-term contribution to the implementation of the Asix systems went to HYDRO-PARTNER from Leszno.

The remaining part of the workshops was devoted to the issues of news and changes in the Asix platform:

  • News in Asix.Evo - new functionalities that were introduced to the main Asix.Evo module were discussed, among others: the issue of updating the process variable database in full on-line mode; new functions and actions simplifying and optimizing the creation of diagrams; new features that help you use images in SVG format.
  • Data search in AsTrend - during the live presentation the new function of the AsTrend program was demonstrated – the function allows you to easily detect the time periods in which the given user's logical condition concerning the recorded data occurred and to display the trends of variables from these periods.
  • Tips for browser based application publishing - within the presentation, the practical tips on how to properly configure IIS server and the browser for the application to run properly Asix.Evo in the browser were given.
  • Use of dates and times in Asix.Evo applications - the presentation time was devoted to the discussion of methods for handling dates and times in Asix.Evo applications. The methods of transferring dates and times from drivers, their conversions and presentations are shown. Informations on the correct use of dates in scripts, as well as registration of dates and times in the AsBase database were provided.
  • Asix.Evo in HTML 5 - is a presentation of a prototype project, the purpose of which is to display the Asix.Evo application in HTML 5 mode, on any browser and operating system. The topic is currently at the research and development stage and will soon be implemented into the Asix platform.
