Improving the total cost of ownership of your ERP System
ABB’s ECS Enterprise Connectivity Solutions provide the mapping of objects between manufacturing and business systems, using ISA-95 as the information structure. The resulting ISA-95 Objects are not just part of the process workflow definition; they couple the properties and aspect objects within any system or device connected to the ABB 800xA platform to establish a real-time connection to the corresponding objects in the plant. ECS provides a single, highly flexible interface.
Coupled with simple,straightforward configuration, this results in:
• Lower engineering costs
• Lower project risk
• Lower interface maintenance costs
• Higher flexibility
• Higher degree of reliable information flowing between systems
This helps the ERP system to better utilize manufacturing information, allowing for faster reactions to changing manufacturing conditions, as well as more accurate decisions made with real-time information.
