MDT Software Selected as Invensys Endorsed Partner
MDT and Invensys Operations Management have partnered to introduce AutoSave for System Platform, a product that unites Invensys’ open ArchestrA technology software platform with advanced MDT AutoSave change management and version control software. Invensys Endorsed Partners work closely with Invensys Operations Management to provide the tools and support needed for the development of value added applications that have proven compatibility with Invensys Operations Management’s offerings.
AutoSave for System Platform enhances change management at the application object level for graphics, templates and instances of application objects within Invensys Operations Management’s ArchestrA System Platform environment. By archiving data and documenting application code changes, AutoSave for System Platform can help improve the review, enhancement and disaster recovery for integrated automation and information solutions. Each application object’s version history and revision details are available through a new MDT AutoSave interface that resembles the ArchestrA Integrated Development Environment (IDE) interface. The product also provides the ability to compare two revisions of an object and report differences, as well as to restore an object from AutoSave to the ArchestrA Galaxy repository. Installation of the AutoSave software is simple, with an automated export of data from the ArchestrA Galaxy application database repository into the AutoSave database.
“MDT Software is honored to be an Invensys Endorsed Partner,” said Gary Gillespie, vice president and general manager, MDT Software. “By working closely with Invensys we have been able to develop a product that will enable ArchestrA System Platform customers to more effectively manage and control equipment and processes, resulting in fewer errors, downtime and safety issues, while increasing security and productivity.”
“In modern manufacturing operations, it is essential to track engineering modifications to any automation components that have a direct impact on manufacturing quality, safety or profitability,” said Phil Couling, software marketing director, Invensys Operations Management. “Because engineering changes can positively or negatively affect production, rigorous change management is vital for regulatory compliance and a requirement for every industry vertical.
“The AutoSave solution increases the value of our ArchestrA System Platform software by protecting intellectual property in the system design and by providing greater insight into important changes over the life of each application object. Customers also benefit from the ability to roll back undesirable changes to a known state, as well as greater creative experimentation and idea testing during the design phase. Rollback capability further reduces risks and system maintenance costs. It is another example of how our global ecosystem of partners leverages open and extensible ArchestrA technology from Invensys to help our clients achieve operational excellence,” he said.
