versiondog - Data management for production line engineers & equipment suppliers
Besides meeting the demand for higher and higher quality, production line engineers & equipment suppliers are also having to deal with rapidly increasing project complexity. Against this backdrop, the task of devising and maintaining a manual data-storage structure has become almost impossible. No matter how well thought out a system seems to be, confusion and lack of clarity can all too easily creep in. Further powerful arguments in favor of an effective data management system are heightened emphasis on IIoT technologies, the growing number of standard programming blocks and the importance of comprehensive process and delivery documentation. versiondog provides valuable support for production line engineers & equipment suppliers all the way from the project design phase to commissioning and customer acceptance.

Version control also used in system and machine production
"We now have a centralised data storage location, a clear structure for user rights, transparency about who changed what, where when and why, source code control and the ability to compare versions, which helps with standardisation. It is now easy to deal with changes: we Check-out the file, set the lock state, make changes, and check it back in. This is all fully documented and can be traced at any time, which also facilitates standardisation and contributes further to our development as a company."

Manual search becomes a relic
In the field of automated production, changes and improvements are made to production processes on a regular basis in order to maximize productivity, efficiency and product quality. However, changing the control programs in this way is far from risk-free, and errors can occur at any time. To overcome this problem, intelligent data management systems are used to manage and protect key project data. By organizing data absolutely transparently at a central storage location and enabling users to carry out predictive maintenance, the data management system helps to keep a plant fully operational.
From beta tester to satisfied user – Graz-based company Knapp AG has been using versiondog for data management since 2009. And now the “digital watchdog” will also be used at the company's other locations in Leoben and Sweden.
