What are the benefits of QMS software?

with and without ProdX Data Management Software

ProdX™ has many valuable benefits, which can be expensive to implement separately in a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). It offers an integrated MES/ERP interface (OPC UA Server) to simplify network integration, supporting Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory global initiatives. 

With ProdX™ Food Safety and Quality Management Software:

  • Each device is connected to ProdX™ using a single standard protocol
  • Checkweighers from other manufacturers ("3rd party CW") can also be connected
  • ProdX™ only needs to be connected once
  • New METTLER TOLEDO device connection is seamless
  • All device data can be made instantly available to the SCADA/MES/ERP using an in-built OPC-UA server

Without ProdX™ Food Safety and Quality Management Software:

  • Each device is separately connected to the network
  • Each device may use different connectivity protocols (CP) depending on age and options
  • Each device must be separately configured
  • Data available to the SCADA/MES is limited

What is Quality Management System software?

The ideal Quality Management System software, or QMS software, is designed to help manufacturers monitor and properly store their product inspection data, satisfying global and local quality and compliance needs. It can streamline administrative effort through digitalization, allowing multiple devices to be monitored from one location, and offers backup cloud storage. It can reduce the complexity of data management and monitoring, supporting the growing demand for remote audit capability and complete traceability.

ProdX™ is a complete inspection management and connectivity software solution for METTLER TOLEDO Product Inspection devices across the widest range of manufacturing industries. Its advanced data redundancy capabilities and communication architecture make it seamlessly scalable from single site, single device installations up to multi-site and multiple time zone international installations.

What is OPC UA?

OPC UA is an industrial communication standard, which ensures the open connectivity, interoperability, security, and reliability of industrial automation devices and systems. OPC UA is widely recognized as the key communication and data modeling technology for the Industry 4.0 initiative. It works with many software platforms, is completely scalable, and has been widely adopted by several industries because of its flexibility.

What are the benefits of OPC UA?

Openness and interoperability between hardware, software, and services are key in helping manufacturers transform how they operate and create solutions that benefit productivity. OPC UA is the communication technology for Industry 4.0 and is essential to reaching this next level of connectivity in manufacturing facilities.
Benefits of OPC UA:
  • It is a global, open standard
  • It is independent and belongs to no single entity
  • It provides an extensible data model which easily integrates with new technologies
  • It is secure – managing access, authentication, validation, and encryption
  • It is a cost-effective way to connect IIoT
