MERRID CONTROLS implemented successfully many IT systems supporting various production processes. Company projects are oriented to meet the clients individual needs and demands. That is why MERRID CONTROLS’ IT systems unites functionality of manufacturing execution systems (MES), computer aided quality assurance systems (CAQ), computerised maintenance management systems (CMMS) and material requirements planning systems (MRP) with the solutions dedicated to automation systems.
One of the Merrid Controls’ largest projects in Mine Supervisory System, implemented in Brown Coal Mine “Bełchatów”, which ensures the support for the maintenance personnel through complex monitoring of each open pit. Current site diagnosis is conducted, as well the alarms and warnings are issued. System enables the control of energy consumption limits and energy costs in each time zone and allows power forecast. System provides also the data to calculate average coal quality and helps the oparation team, allowing precise predictions of maintenance periods.
The example of another implementation is Merrid Controls’ original system GUTMER, which serves to complex operating of conveyors belts production department in SEMPERTRANS Bełchatów Factory. The main system’s functions is supervising and control of vulacnization presses, production monitoring, the management of production formulas and instructions (in cooperation with ERP system) as well the inspection of product quality.
For factories where line scheme of manufacturing process prevails, there is dedicated Production Line Monitoring System, which is implemented among in BSH Factories in Lodz. The key role of the system is to control the productivity of lines and to analyse the causes of downtime. Every downtime (scheduled or unplanned) is registered in central data base and classifed. System analyses the losses cause by disturbances of line work rhythm.
