human machine interface design software
Jhon jairo V.
Vorteile: This allows import of images for construction of animations for the design of the interface, is user friendly, allows different protocols of industrial communications
Nachteile: This is too expensive, the acquisition of the software is allowed by the purchase of this and not by the purchase of equipment. Training is expensive should integrate the system

Kommentare: I have had good luck with the software and with all the documentation. I have had spotty luck with the support team. More times than not they can get to the source of the problem right away, but occassionally you seem to get someone who appears to have not had much real life use of the products.
Vorteile: I appreciate that the FactoryTalk suite can integrate data from the plant floor to a high level manager. I can easily gather data via FactoryTalk Linx and push it to my displays in FactoryTalk View SE, my historian in FactoryTalk Historian SE, and even to reports via VantagePoint. The HMI is easy to use and I like how everything integrates more or less seamlessly.
Nachteile: The View SE displays can use some higher quality (vector based) graphics. The graphics engine is a little old and needs some reworking. Also, some basic integration of database calls and tabular data in the HMI is missing without the engineer doing quite a bit of work or relying on third party active-x controls.

FactoryTalk VantagePoint is powerful access to industrial data
Kommentare: Fast access to all manufacturing data across the entire company
Vorteile: The key to FactoryTalk VantagePoint is to treat all data as time series "tag" data when setting up connectors. Being able to quickly grab any tag across the entire company and drop it on a trend chart or bring it into Excel is very powerful. The application can connect to all major industrial historians as well as any SQL or Oracle database. This gives you access to just about any data available.
Nachteile: The best features of the product are not well exposed and are not as user friendly. For example, the ability to finesse a data set within the Excel Add-in is called Post-SQL processing, hidden deep within the wizard, and requires knowledge of SQL as well as undocumented syntax to refer to columns.

Experience is across many people
Kommentare: Keeping our system on Factory talk helps with having a cohesive network.
Vorteile: Factory Talk keeps everything under one roof. It's helpful to have training, PLC programs, VFD programs, and panelviews under one bracket. If you're already familiar with programming, this will be a good program to know especially if working in the US.
Nachteile: Support personnel from Rockwell on a few accounts could not answer technical questions. Including questions about equipment that has been running for 20+ years. They will call someone else or edit it how they normally do it instead of trying to help understand what your business or company needs.

Kommentare: Working as an operator in a manufacturing plant, our systems interface is done using FactoryTalk software and overall it has been a very positive experience.
Vorteile: The end user interface is limited only by the programmer’s capability and skill set.
Nachteile: As the end user, the weaknesses of the interface can be magnified by the programmer and their knowledge of the factory or processes being controlled.

I use FactoryTalk to create displays for our manufacturing machines used by operators and managers.
Vorteile: Works well with other Rockwell products, machine controllers and drivers. It works better than their competitor products.
Nachteile: Some portions are more complex than they should be such as the setup and configuration. I have to configure multiple parts for it to work properly, such as the communication, human machine interface, and server setup.
