The Cosmino software can be integrated into every IT landscape through various interfaces and thereby seamlessly interact with many other systems.
Transferring Equipment Signals
Online integration of machines will make machine data available immediately and automatically. Cosmino will receive data directly from the equipment control system or from additionally integrated sensor systems, which thereby will also make automated detection of older machines and manufacturing lines possible.
By using an OPC interface, various sensors and control systems can also communicate in a shared, flexible network. This makes cost-saving autonomous connection of machines possible.
Transferring Recorded Data from Third-party Systems
When quality or machine data has already been record by existing systems and solutions, that data can be imported. For this purpose, corresponding standard import interfaces (such as through SQL) are available. Data imported in this manner will be automatically validated and reported by Cosmino, just like data acquired with Cosmino. Thus, existing solutions can be easily expanded and duplicate data acquisition and storage can be avoided.
Transferring Orders from, and sending Notification to, the ERP System
Communications between the ERP system and Cosmino MES Plus will use standardized interfaces. COSMINO AG has comprehensive experience in connecting with various ERP systems.
Transferring Quality Data from Measuring Devices
Cosmino ProControl Online Measurement Data Acquisition (OMDAQ) can be set up to automatically import test results from various measuring devices (SPC sub-systems, 3D coordinate measurement machines and measuring systems) and store them in the standardized test results database.
If the data to be imported contains sufficient information (such as measured values, characteristic names & numbers, etc.), inspection plans and inspection orders can be created based on this information in Cosmino ProControl.
Transferring Inspection Orders from a CAQ System
If inspection planning should not be performed with Cosmino, inspection orders can also be received from various CAQ systems through an interface. The measurement values and types of errors recorded via Cosmino software can subsequently be sent through a standard CAQ interface back to the CAQ system for further processing.
Integration with qs-STAT and Minitab
Quality data recorded can be automatically transferred to qs-STAT or Minitab, in order to allow long-term calculations to be performed. This will work both via a Q-COM server (as a background process) as well as directly into qs-STAT (in foreground).
Exporting the Results Data
Various export interfaces have been implemented for the reporting system, in order to export results data for manual use or make that data available to other systems.
