camLine introduces version 7.1 of Cornerstone to the market

Novel engineering analytics for Lean Six Sigma

camLine GmbH, developer of software solutions for operational excellence, is introducing version 7.1 of Cornerstone. The new version of the engineering statistics solution for fast Design of Experiment and Data analytics introduces novel visualizations for even faster root-cause analysis and extended Big Data capabilities. Paired with various graphical improvements like alpha-blending, the newly offered methods and approaches extend the efficiency lead in engineering analytics. The capability spectrum of the software ranges from analytics application areas such as technical statistics, experimental planning (DoE) to explorative data analysis.

One major feature in Version 7.1 of Cornerstone is the novel visualization Multi-Category-Chart. This tool allows the simultaneous visual analysis of up to 100 categorical variables and provides the basis for a much more efficient root-cause analysis. Together with the new Multi-Vari-Charts the Six Sigma engineers receive tools to become much more effective in analyzing Big Data integrated via several new interfaces and methods. Improvements in the graphical representations through extended color palettes, true color support, anti-aliasing and alpha-blending foster the effectiveness in analyzing ever growing amounts of engineering data.

camLine GmbH launches XperiDesk 5.4

Faster navigation through the experiment data cloud

camLine GmbH, developer of software solutions for manufacturing excellence, is launching XperiDesk (XD) 5.4. By streamlining existing and adding diverse functions, the new release strengthens XD’s leading position amoung Process Development Execution Systems (PDES).

The highlights of XD 5.4 enhancements immediately respond to current demands in the field: The users can use previous search results as selector for semantic relation searches, parameters can now be sorted into (multiple) directories and the manufacturability check evaluates calculated parameters. And last but not least, XD’s backend technology stack has been completely renewed giving it more performance, versatility and maintainability.

With the search result based relation searching, it has become much easier to iteratively sift through the experiment data. As previously the user can search for a set of items fulfilling his/her search criteria. On these results he/she can do a multi-select and based on the selected items start digging through the semantic experiment network. Because of this approach being able to be repeated, the user can easily navigate through the cloud of experiment results. Previously, this was only possible for a single item in the relation graph view. Another improvement is the extended functionality of sorting parameters into directories. This oftentimes requested feature improves the oversight in the previously flat parameter maintenance views and even allows to sort one parameter into multiple directories. This way it is easier to align people searching for a parameter from different perspectives. The manufacturability check has been extended as well. During the check in previous versions of the software, only the already flat numeric parameters were considered. With the extension in version 5.4, even parameters being calculated recursively out of other parameters are considered.

Other improvements are the seamless synchronization of Runs currently in production between the full and the operator client and the more versatile handling of regular expression handling in the MS Excel import client. Finally, it should be mentioned that XD 5.4 comes with various improvements with respect to performance and streamlining the user guidance and multi-organization usage. Throughout, camLine recommends the upgrade to XD 5.4 to existing customers.

camLine releases LineWorks RM 6.1

Now available with fine grained control on parameter level


camLine, a software company specialized in developing solutions for manufacturing excellence, announced the new Release 6.1 of its LineWorks RM recipe management system. It is a connected, IT-based infrastructure solution for the production with the intention to provide the overall and clear evidence of entire manufacturing processes for their unambiguous identification. For comparison, the IDs of both, salable products and manufacturing equipment, can be captured in many different ways and without effort. However, the unique registration of the integrated manufacturing processes and their changes is a special challenge for production sites. It can have far-reaching consequences for the manufacturers with respect to their future competitiveness. The management of process changes and their traceability is associated with many business processes. A remarkable potential lies in their efficient rationalization to reduce manufacturing costs.

Advanced features in the area of parameters and recipe body management, recipe object visualization as well as validation are available in the release of version 6.1. Furthermore, improvements have been made to the user interface. With the newly introduced parameter tags and options, the user has evolved capabilities to classify parameters based on their usage. Additionally it is possible to store parameter options at parameter level. These options are name-value pairs (additional data) stored per parameter. It encapsulates user-defined flags / options that are further interpreted by the customer's EI (Equipment Integration).

Customer specific validation rules can be defined in the recipe object validators. Via the recipe object templates it is possible to enable the validations in a controlled manner. This ensures a gradual deployment of the new validations.

The new version offers a flexible and consistent user interface to setup the custom recipe object and recipe body visualizations.

The end-user will benefit from the single sign-on capabilities of the improved user interface.

Furthermore, the administration of the users and notifications are consolidated into a unified web-based user interface.
