An Integrated Information System for Route Inspection in Manufacturing
Medium and small equipments in manufacturing are numerous, various and dispersive, so route inspection is the best method to acquire their condition information for its flexibility and low costs. In this paper, an integrated information system for route inspection is constructed to achieve distributed information acquisition on a large scale and centralized information management in a well order. Firstly, the information transfer model of route inspection is erected to describe information demands of route inspection participant. Then, several key problems, such as the instrument for information acquiring, information administration mode, interaction mode and security, are resolved respectively. Finally, three units, workstation, server and client are developed to acquire, manage and utilize the information. They are integrated into a whole system called MTREE, which has been applied into several steel enterprises successfully.
