Nowadays a number of industrial and business processes still require operator management and handling. Measurements and tallies, the opening or closing of access/entry gates, plant start-up, sensor activation as well as a number of further actions are often operator-performed, thus affecting both costs and efficiency.

Upview is Aitek’s cost-effective solution for the automatic control of your production processes. This open platform integrates into any IT infrastructure by slotting in between your information systems and the end-devices.

Upview allows for unmanned automated production processes – thus avoiding manual checks and activation of procedures and end-devices. Operators will only need to take charge of anomalies or unexpected events.

Upview is your best choice for cost-effective production and business processes.

Why Upview?

… because it’s an open platform able to automate processes and manage end-devices relying on different technologies, independently of quantity, type and positioning.

… because it’s fully integrable into third-party applications. Upview uses IoT standards for data sharing towards external management systems and allows for higher-tier processing via cloud or online dashboard interface.

… because, unlike other market solutions, Upview is fully scalable and customisable via features that meet your needs and integrate into your IT system without interfering with on-going operations or affecting existing procedures.

… because it works in real time. Data acquired from end-devices are readily available without latency-time. Real-time gauging of your plant status!

Architecture

Upview uses standard internet technology and IoT protocols to acquire end-device status info and increase efficiency thereof according to implemented system logics.

Big data acquisition and processing via Upview are crucial support for any informed strategic and operational decision-making. Upview acquires and clusters data from any source focusing on:

  • process events: production, plant start-up, measurements, tallies, plate detection, speed estimation, etc.
  • diagnostic events: anomaly, device failure, connection break-down, system unavailable, etc.

Dashboard and operator interfaces

Data acquired via Upview are readily available for business logics application, clustering, statistics and real-time display from customised dashboard and user interfaces.

User-friendly operational dashboards supply constantly up-dated information on system status. Dashboards can be displayed on non-interactive screens such as video walls, led walls or large-format LCD located inside control rooms. Access to the interface is also possible from most smart-phones and tablet browsers.
