Argonaut Platform Features

Argonaut’s IIOT Industry 4.0 infrastructure provides the following core features out of the box, which are used to build amazing experiences for technicians, operators, supervisors and managers alike.

Applet Runners and Runtimes

Applet Runners allow user-defined applications (Applet Runtimes) to be run in the cloud or at the edge. Applet Runtimes maintain a consistent state and connection to defined equipment allowing always-on headless operation. Operator views and interaction are web based and accessible from standard web browsers or mobile devices.

Applets integrate with MQTT and are Sparkplug-B compatible.

Schedule Definition and Broadcast

Argonaut’s Schedule allows for calendar-based planning of working shifts and planned breaks. User-defined information may be added to events, and all data is published via MQTT, allowing for real-time IIoT integration and alignment across a site or enterprise.

Material Definition and Tracking

Argonaut’s Material model allows for users to define classes and models of materials produced or used in the production process. Serialized instances of materials provide traceability reports with a full history of how a material was produced.

Process Definition and Tracking

Argonaut processes represent work done and decisions made to complete manufacturing of a material or lot. Processes include:

  • Requirement definition of what data is needed to run a process (specification parameters) and what data needs to be collected for a process (data elements).
  • Specifications inform a process of the required parameter data. Argonaut includes a built-in, flexible decision-making engine to select specification based upon operational conditions, material attributes, work order details, and more.

Validation rules to ensure that quality is maintained while robust material and process reporting provides a full who, what, where, when and why data record for each step.

Equipment Monitoring and Reporting

The Argonaut digital manufacturing platform includes several standard reports conforming to typical industry standards. Data is collected from our distributed IIoT-based collectors, which may be integrated with any plant floor equipment.

Standard filters allow for analysis to be completed based upon schedule, location and specific time ranges.

  • Constraint Analysis Report – Used to compare time in state data between equipment on a plant floor to analyze where to focus improvement efforts.
  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) – Industry standard report combining availability, quality and efficiency to measure production effectiveness.
  • Top-N Fault Pareto – Used to quickly prioritize efforts to improve process and equipment issues.
  • Mean Time Between Failure and to Repair (MTBF and MTTR) – Analyze the frequency and duration of fault over time and across various equipment.
  • State Report – User definable states are displayed in pie-chart or timeline views to quickly gain insight into performance and trends.
