Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the process and manufacturing industries, unveiled version 3.5 of its Wonderware Enterprise Integrator software solution, enabling secure integration of Wonderware manufacturing execution software (MES) applications, such as Operations, InBatch, Intelligence and other shop-floor applications, with enterprise resource planning, product lifecycle management, supply chain management, laboratory information management and other enterprise systems, the company announced Dec. 10. (See diagram, below.)

Wonderware Enterprise Integrator 3.5 solution allows a consistent approach in operations-to-enterprise integration, eliminating high maintenance point-to-point integration scenarios. The newest version offers out-of-the-box, site-to-enterprise integration services for Wonderware MES, with complete message history, secured delivery and store forward. Technology support for industry standards such as ISA95 and B2MML, as well as for service-oriented architectures, helps further reduce the total cost of ownership of integration and IT landscapes.

Michael Schwarz, MES and EMI marketing programs manager, Invensys Operations Management, said, "The software is designed to manage additional connectivity and data transformations as reusable add-ons, which enable effective multi-site integration rollouts and support company standards."

Easy-to-use configuration, administration and status views offer fast, maintainable and more cost-effective enterprise integration compared to non-standard or custom, one-off software-based integration solutions, Invensys said. The product also allows customers to achieve business continuity in the case of ERP or business system unavailability and the ability to maintain data consistency by a menu-driven, web-based user interface.

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.
