“Implementing Topview into our control scheme has added a supervisory layer that not only helps prevent production losses but also aids in keeping us in compliance with state and local requirements. We use TopView alarms with automated emails to notify management, purchasing and suppliers when raw materials are needed. In addition, having process parameters monitored to notify specific personnel when they are out of tolerance helps us keep vital equipment running. I use the email delivery system to notify the instrument techs when critical signals show a faulted condition. Shift personnel can see the process displays, but decision makers who aren’t on the floor or even in the same building can receive meaningful email messages 24×7.
Once configured Topview requires very little maintenance to provide the wide range of benefits, and I don’t think I’ve discovered them all yet. All this, from one application that just keeps running!”
