Minnetonka, Minnesota, August 31, 2009 – As One Technologies, Inc. announced the release of its Catalyst xM software today, addressing the need for automated and standardized exception management within manufacturing operations.
“Understanding when critical events occur, and responding consistently and appropriately, can have a significant impact on a manufacturer’s profitability”, said Jay Mellen, Exec. V.P., Business Development at As One Technologies. “Catalyst xM is a controlled electronic system that manufacturers can use to automate responses to critical events, providing compliance to standard operating procedures, traceability to the user level and significant reductions in resource requirements.”
Catalyst xM ensures compliance to standard operating procedures by automating critical event detection and responding with the execution of Action Plans. Action Plans are the logical sequence of actions manufacturers define to optimally respond to the occurrence of a critical event. Catalyst xM Action Plans are comprised of fully automated actions, logical elements, and user-driven actions so users can participate in Action Plans, as required, through an intuitive web portal like Microsoft SharePoint.
Catalyst xM has been designed to integrate with a manufacturers existing equipment and systems in order to provide event detection and response automation, with open connectivity to a wide variety of equipment, devices, databases and communications and messaging protocols including: OPC, SECS/GEM, Serial, TCP, FTP, SMTP, SMS, Flat files, Oracle, SQL Server, custom application APIs, Tibco, MSMQ, MQ-Series, JMS, WCF, SOAP/REST/WS, DDS, SAP MII, and .NET Service Bus (Windows Azure Cloud).
