Traxware Bots allow rapid, flexible, customer specific applications
TraxWare creates knowledge-based applications through the use of dynamic demand driven logic components (Bots), similar to software modules. These logic components are ideal for use in the smart manufacturing sector because they are highly customizable, processing location independent workflows. Logic components interface with each other rapidly sharing information flows. This fact allows for agile interconnected processes and facilitates intelligent automation.
Logic Component Unique Benefits
- Location independent workflow solutions
- Operate at the network edge
- Capture process information from previous installations accelerating coding time and ROI
- Extensible Logic Authoring enables rapid new process definitions by line-of-business VARs that are expert in process applications
Dynamic Control and Communication
Logic components utilize broad intelligent automation, streamlining manufacturing processes through networked sensor capability. This is seen in the ways in which these logic components communicate: with databases, enterprise systems, web services, and among each other. A logic component’s dynamic capability is best demonstrated on the network edge. A logic component on the network edge handles complex connection conditions: its server connection can be persistent (expected to be present always), or isolated (never present). If a logic component on the edge performs a job that takes it away from the network, it first synchronizes with the server, then intelligently disconnects itself while it does its job. After the job is complete, the logic component re-connects to the network and resynchronizes with the server. All of this happens without human-user interference.
Demand Driven Interaction
Dynamic user demand drives the logic component process through forms and devices. An authorized user can submit a logic component form for purposes such as controlling a device like a printer, or posting business data to a database, or viewing a report. Testament to the locational independent workflows of TraxWare, logic component forms are accessible from a local console on workstations and mobile computers, or from a browser AJAX console, or a simple browser interface for wedge input. Users also interact through devices like message boards, stack lights, and physical switches. Entigral’s use of dynamic demand driven Logic components to perform role-based automation is an innovative step toward this industry future.
