The JWL-RMA information and equipment management system integrates features found in leading MRP (manufacturing resource planning) and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) software, while customizing the features and functions to the civil explosive production industry. This software package enables monitoring of the production, inventory, and safety compliance of production facilities. The system incorporates RFID product monitoring, GPS truck tracking, compliance monitoring, and robust reporting functionality. HD video monitoring and recording is also supported, and video streams can be viewed remotely via the internet or VPN (virtual private network).
Integrated into the JWL-RMA software is the EMS (Equipment Management System) module. The EMS module handles the equipment maintenance, troubleshooting, and spare parts inventory. By gathering data specific to each equipment configuration and performing complex statistical analysis, maintenance intervals and procedures can be modified to save cost and minimize equipment down-time. The EMS module can be implemented as a standalone software package, separate from the JWL-RMA system.
