Report Manager


Report Manager™ uses Microsoft’s SQL Reporting Services to provide a robust, reliable, and extendable reporting platform for control processes. Report Manager™ can be accessed from anywhere in the plant from a computer or terminal that has network access and a web browser.

Batch, unit, and phase data (includes ingredient usage) are cached in report data queues in the PLC. Each event triggers a transaction that calls a stored procedure in the Report database. Phase-level stored procedures update inventory of ingredients and assign lot-codes to each usage as well as report the start and end time of the phase operation. Batch and Unit level stored procedures report the start and end time of the batch and unit procedures. This information can be used to generate production reports including batch reports and usage reports.

Several of the report types offered include:

Batch Summary Reports

Includes a link to a Gantt Chart which gives a visual representation of batch timing.

This includes hopper weights, liquid flow rates, temperature, etc.
