DPSI and SYSCON-PlantStar have partnered to provide a total plant management solution. Thanks to the partnership with DPSI, SYSCON-PlantStar now offers maintenance management solutions that complement PlantStar’s manufacturing execution systems. “We’ve been looking for the ideal resource for our customers’ preventive maintenance needs that can encompass the equipment monitored by PlantStar as well as their other plant assets. DPSI has met our criteria on all levels: They have a proven track record of over 25 years, their software is flexible and scalable, and their products are competitively priced,” said Gary Benedix, Vice President at PlantStar.

An additional benefit is the user-friendly integration between the two systems. “Even though both PlantStar and DPSI have multi-tiered software programs, the sharing of information will be seamless and intuitive,” said Mr. Benedix. In a plastics facility, for example, the PlantStar program will gather a machine’s total run hours, the number of cycles on a mold/tool, and downtime tracking by reason and pass it to the DPSI system for preventive maintenance planning.

“The ability to link real-time machine data with a preventive maintenance program offers huge benefits to manufacturers that want to stay competitive. Concepts like the “Industrial Internet” and “Smart Manufacturing” are the new reality and it doesn’t have to be time consuming or cost prohibitive to gain plant-wide efficiencies, whether you have one facility or factories around the world. We’re pleased that the partnership between PlantStar and DPSI make it possible,” said Mr. Benedix.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with PlantStar, a leading provider of manufacturing execution systems, and feel our alliance will benefit our current and future customers. Both PlantStar systems and DPSI’s CMMS and EAM solutions are best of breed applications developed specifically to meet our customer’s needs,” said Carol Owens, President at DPSI.
