Orlando, FL – Emerson Process Management has introduced the Syncade smart operations management suite, a modular, scalable suite real-time production management software that integrates real-time intelligent plant-floor data with procedural, off-line and transactional plant business processes, decisions and asset management into Emerson’s PlantWeb digital plant architecture.
Announcing the system at the ARC Strategy Forum on Feb. 2, 2008, Emerson said the suite uses Microsoft.Net framework-based software to deliver ISA95 Level 3 standards-based functionality.
Syncade smart operation management suite is centered on four modules: resource management, operations optimization, integrated information, and quality and compliance.

The resource management module is designed to optimize material conversion and eliminate the use of unsuitable material to reduce waste and rework.
The suite’s Operations Optimization module focuses on coordination and easy access to order management, material weighing/addition/traceability status, equipment state/cleaning/calibration tracking, product sampling and adjustment, electronic procedural control and data collection.
Quality and Compliance are handled by Syncade via online storage, change control, automatic routing, version management, and archived records management.
The Syncade Suite’s Integrated Information module is said to coordinate “handshaking” functions between existing plant systems and electronically guiding manual processes.

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.
