Thursday, May 15, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Intelligent production-data capture in real time

Along with MIS systems from Optimus and PPS software belonging to the LogoTronic product range, together with partner Logica Sistemi in Castel San Pietro (Italy) KBA offers a further solution for production planning and control as well as production-data capture in real time. This solution is extremely successful especially in China.

It is Logica’s mission to optimise management and production processes as well as to enable full production control as a basis for strategic planning. Together with the module “DataProduction” for capturing production data in real time, the software suite which available under the name KBA ProductivityPlus comprises a further module for production management.

KBA ProductivityPlus facilitates the capture of key operating data, a preview of current jobs, a view of the production status as well as monitoring the production process via a BDE terminal at the press. Press operators can log-on using smart cards or the touch-screen. Charts available online support the analysis of production processes. Furthermore, the management can access data and check production in real time from outside the company via a web browser on a smartphone or tablet PC.

KBA ProductivityPlus can be adapted and expanded if necessary to meet the specific needs of the company in question. The options include JobManager which allows the user to create new jobs and import them into MIS as well as pre-press tools, a pre-flight check and FTP server management. A JDF CIP4 interface between DataProduction and MIS is also available.

Streamlined production, data control and extensive analysis capabilities increase the productivity of the printing process. Makeready times are reduced and precise information regarding consumables are designed to optimise material management. A raft of print firms have already taken advantage of the benefits of ProductivityPlus and are using solutions from Logica. KBA has implemented over 50 systems in China alone.
