SyTech Inc. added to its production reporting and data analysis software by offering the Team edition of the XLReporter product family. This edition of reporting software marries the most popular reporting product, Microsoft Excel, with the leading historians in the automation industry, resulting in easy-to-grasp reports from anywhere in the organization, while maintaining individualized security, SyTech said.

Team edition is a reporting solution that fulfills the demanding expectations of industry producing extremely sophisticated reports with limited technical resources and budget, SyTech said. Interfaces are provided to advanced historians by GE Intelligent Platforms, Wonderware, Emerson Process Management, Siemens, and Rockwell Software plus supporting OPC-HDA, ODBC and OLE-DB.

Report templates are designed in the familiar environment of Excel, using all its features, plus analysis that only the XLReporter engine, upon which Team resides, can provide. Using Microsoft Excel to the core, readily available templates for KPI, OEE, SPC, SQC and regulatory reports can be used “out of the box.”

Team edition has built-in user security to prevent unauthorized access. It allows each report template to be organized for specific groups of users, enabling users to focus on producing the reports pertinent to their needs.

When reporting is a true collaborative effort, each individual of the ‘Team’ is empowered.  Now operators can generate reports on production behavior and bring them to the attention of their supervisors.  Lab technicians can detect problems in product quality and inform the maintenance department to perform equipment calibration.  Plant managers can summarize process activity and point out to everyone the strengths and weaknesses of the facility.  These are just a few examples of how Team edition lets each team member improve operations.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
