DMC implemented a Wonderware SCADA and MES system for several chemical manufacturing lines. The system features a centralized recipe management system. The end result was a consistent product with reduced quality control issues.


DMC's client was a chemical manufacturer seeking consistency and security in its recipes and production lines. A Wonderware SCADA and MES system was implemented to control the client's Allen-Bradley PLC lines. The system was responsible for attaining data from a centralized SQL Server system and using that data to drive several different chemical production lines. PCs running Wonderware were used as the front-end interface to the Allen-Bradley control. The recipe management system made line configuration and setup simple with little opportunity for error. This centralized system guaranteed security and uniformity across recipes.
