The Information module in DCOS software platform provides data exchange and reports regarding production data based on inputs from the press, its subsystems and the operators. The system is designed to generate as much production information as possible, while minimizing the required manual input. This information can be viewed onscreen, exported into various file formats or printed on paper as production reports.
General reports contains production information such as counters, timestamps, and stop causes. The system can be detailed configured from the customer requirements on what should be included from the available information. The customer can also choose various triggers when the reports should be created and what timeframe should be included. As an example, one report can be generated after each production in conjunction with one report for day shift and one for the night. This also makes it easy to setup weekly and monthly reports. Reports can be exported in various formats such as PDF, XML, CSV.
For customers that are using DCOS inspection systems additional quality reports can be generated. These reports contains detailed information about the measured quality during production. Examples of information that can be found in this report is deviations in color register, cutoff register and ink density. The amount and type of information depend on what inspection systems that are available.
