  • Empecemos conociendo los usuarios que intervienen en los procesos productivos indicados anteriormente y cuales son sus interrelaciones básicas. El proceso productivo transforma las materias primas recibidas en producto semielaborado o acabado. Para ello el proceso se inicia con la recepción de materias primas, en el laboratorio de control de calidad en que disponen del sistema LIMS generan una orden de muestreo en el sistema MES para los contenedores recibidos. El usuario de Control de Calidad accede a la cabina correspondiente para realizar la operación de toma de muestras en las condiciones ambientales y de seguridad e higiene adecuadas. Una vez terminada la orden de muestreo vuelve con las muestras enbolsadas al laboratorio. En el laboratorio se efectúan los análisis y se archivan las muestras en la muestroteca. La guía de fabricación de un determinado producto marca los pasos detallados de cómo se ha de producir en cada paso de la ruta que seguirá por la planta. El Autor de recetas implementa esta guía como receta electrónica para las distintas operaciones que requiere un producto determinado: en Pesadas de Materias Primas, Formulación de Líquidos, Formulación de Sólidos y Dosificado de Sólidos. Con la receta validada y aprobada según el ciclo normativo correspondiente, el encargado de planificación puede crear ordenes para su ejecución desde el sistema ERP que se descomponen en ordenes para las distintas operaciones del sistema MES. Las ordenes se ejecutan en las distintas cabinas y reportan sus resultados a Supervisión que realiza el seguimiento y verificación de los resultados. Una vez completada la orden se notifica el cierre correcto de la misma a Planificación. Veamos estos procesos en detalle ...
  • Automated BIN control interface: Carga y Descarga de contenedores BIN. Control de movimientos automáticos desde el sistema. Accionamiento de válvulas y elementos mecánicos. PLC interfase by OPC. Monitorización del estado de la Estación Activa. Operación en modo manual. Interfaz Control de Proceso de Formulación de Líquidos Secuenciación de las fases del proceso. Parametrización de las fases en la edición de las recetas. Ejecución automática de las fases en modo síncrono o asíncrono. Comunicación FTP con sistema SCADA (legado). Monitorización de las comunicaciones. Interfaz Control de Básculas Acciones de inicialización, tara, peso y fijación de tara. Identificación de las básculas según tipo y unidad de proceso.
