Safeguarding Assets: Ensure that all devices are running as configured

octoplant Safeguarding Assets

Complete view of the plant and production

Data backup protects automated production and ensures that the correct version is always running. With version management, plant operators always have access to the current program and can see all changes. Different versions can be compared graphically and in tabular form. Backups are created automatically - saving time, reducing errors, and ensuring a reliable image of the production environment.

This not only works for newly built or retrofitted digital plants but can also be implemented for unnetworked or partially networked machinery and plants. Daily manual backups of project statuses can be replaced by automated backups. Users save time for value-added tasks and receive uniform workflows across all shifts. At the same time, due to transparent monitoring functions, everyone involved gains important insights into the status of the plant and the production. If something doesn't match, the necessary people will be informed about it via email triggers.

What our customers say

versiondog* is a well-rounded tool that has helped us simplify our work immensely. Functions such as version compare are even better than the solutions offered by individual device manufacturers. This is what makes versiondog so attractive!

Comprehensive protection of all device data in automated production

When using octoplant, all devices are backed up according to your  criteria (time, interval, etc.) so a new version of the job configuration is created within a few minutes. When differences between two versions are detected, users can be notified automatically with visual comparison of the differences.
