Learn about the tools and services in UMH’s Data Connectivity for integrating shop floor systems.
The United Manufacturing Hub’s Data Infrastructure is where all data converges. It extends the ISA95 Automation Pyramid, the usual model for data flow in factory settings. This infrastructure links each level of the traditional pyramid to the Unified Namespace (UNS), incorporating extra data sources that the typical automation pyramid doesn’t include. The data is then organized, stored, and analyzed to offer useful information for frontline workers. Afterwards, it can be sent to the a data lake or analytics platform, where business analysts can access it for deeper insights.
It comprises three primary elements:
- Data Connectivity: This component includes an array of tools and services designed to connect various systems and sensors on the shop floor, facilitating the flow of data into the Unified Namespace.
- Unified Namespace: Acts as the central hub for all events and messages on the shop floor, ensuring data consistency and accessibility.
- Historian: Responsible for storing events in a time-series database, it also provides tools for data visualization, enabling both real-time and historical analytics.
Together, these elements provide a comprehensive framework for collecting, storing, and analyzing data, enhancing the operational efficiency and decision-making processes on the shop floor.
