SuiteFactory's Integrated Applications Keeping Businesses Informed & Secure

A Suite of Secure Integrated Manufacturing Apps & Modules

SuiteFactoryTM is comprised of a Suite of Secure Integrated Manufacturing Applications & Modules ranging from simple DNC Software to Sophisticated Machine Tool Monitoring, Full Manufacturing Document Control, ISO9000 Solutions, etc.!

Designed to Collect, Control & Manage

SuiteFactory's Applications are designed to collect, control & manage all of your critical data & information including all of your CNC Files, Manufacturing Documents, Projects, Users, ISO9000 Requirements whether on the Manufacturing Floor or in your Engineering Offices.

Modular Design for Easy Expansion

By using a modular design approach we were able to meet the basic requirements of small to medium size Manufacturing Organizations while allowing expansion for larger Organizations.

allowing for an upgrade path that meets the requirements of Large International Manufacturing Organizations. In order to make the upgrade path seamless all of SuiteFactory's Modules are preinstalled so upgrades can be activated by simply installing a new License & Activation Key which is available over the Internet.

SuiteFactory is Rights Based & Virtualizable

SuiteFactory is a Rights based, Database Driven Suite of Applications which use Microsoft's AccessTM or SQL ServerTM Technologies. If you need Visualization (SuiteCitrixTM(pdf) or (html)) supports Citrix which allows you to Access SuiteFactory from anywhere in the World using your Browser, Smart Phone or Tablet!

Note: SuiteFactoryTM Runtime automatically customizes its appearance based on what an Administrator set as the User Group's "Rights" so you never end up with Icons that can't be accessed by a particular User!

SuiteFactory Runtime becomes your Portal into the Manufacturing Shop Floor!

SuiteFactory'sTM "Runtime" Application is the Portal into the Applications, Features and Modules that Securely Drive your Manufacturing Shop Floor Efficiency.

Users Login into SuiteFactory with their own "Rights" accessing only those functions & data established by an Administrator and they only "View" the Menus, Icons & Buttons granted by the System Administrator.
Note: The present view above is what an Administrator would see if they had full "Rights".

SuiteFactory'sTM Integrated Executables

SuiteFactory is a Secure Client Server Database Driven Suite of Applications consists of eight Integrated Executables, including SuiteFactory Runtime, designed for Real-Time Intra Executable Messaging. This assures that all of your Data is update Real-Time allowing you to Manage and Control all of your Company's Data & Machine Tool Communications with Confidence. A Brief Explanation of these Executables Follows:

Communications Engine

The CNC Communications Server is responsible for providing the communications channel between SuiteFactory and All CNC Machine Tools. These can be Wireless, RS232, FTP & UNC. An important Feature of the DNC Communications Engine is it can have Multiple Instances simultaneously deployed on different computers connected to the Network on which SuiteFactory is executing. This Feature allows for off-loading heavy Communications Loads on any particular computer to any other less stressed computer. As an example if you were using one computer to communicate with 100 Machine Tools all doing high speed milling in Drip Feed Mode there is no way that this one computer could handle this load. So you could share this load with other computers!

This Feature also allows you to move SuiteFactory's CNC Communications Engine from this computer to other if this computer were to go off-line which would stop production. Not a good situation! The ability to deploy The DNC Communications Engine on any number of computers allows different departments to have their computers run The Communications Engine for supporting only their Machine Tools! The DNC Communications Engine is EventAware(this feature needs to be turned on) and will record all downloads & uploads in SuiteFactory's database for generating ISO Reports.

Maintenance Engine

Only one instance of The Maintenance Engine can be executing at one time but can be executing on any computer on the Network where SuiteFactory is executing. The Maintenance Engine has the responsibility for automatically importing all Files and Documents into SuiteFactory's database and associating these with the correct resources such as Virtual File Cabinets, Resource Collections/Machine Tools and Packets. This feature can be used by Engineering, Manufacturing, Quality, Office, etc to easily import these Files/Documents/Packet and automatically associate these with the correct resources automatically. The Maintenance Engine is also responsible for picking up and sending messages from/to FTP & UNC Machine Tools so remote requests for non-RS232 can be serviced. The Maintenance Engine is EventAware(this feature needs to be turned on) and will record all imports & other transactions in SuiteFactory's database for generating ISO Reports.

DNC Editor

The DNC Editor is a specialized Editor designed for N/C Type Files. It provides the standard features, Cut, Copy, Paste, Find & Replace, etc. and special features that are needed when editing DNC File. Some of these are Re-sequence, Unsequence, Mirroring, Scaling, Translating, etc. The DNC Editor is also EventAware(this feature needs to be turned on) and will Interrogate you as to the changes you are making and will record this for generating ISO Reports.

Exchange Messages

SuiteFactory consists of a Suite of Mutli-User Multi-Tasking Integrated Applications which provide inter-program communications to maintain real-time Data and Event exchanges. The Exchange Messages Executable is responsible the message exchanges between the various applications so they all have access to the same Real-Time Data & Events.

Communications Helper

The Communications Helper is responsible for off-loading those task from the Communications Engine that would interfere with its ability to respond to Real-Time Events from the Machine Tools. This could be the Saving of Files, Parsing Requests from the Machine Tool, Parsing of Events from the Machine Tool, etc.

Path & Serial Port Validator

The Path & Serial Port Validator is responsible for off-loading the tasks from SuiteFactory Runtime and the Communications Engine of checking to make sure that any established paths(folder locations network wide) are available and that the requested RS232 Ports are available to the The Communications Engine.

If the requested Paths and or Ports are not available this would interfere with SuiteFactory's Runtime Execution and the Communications Engine's ability to service other validated RS232 Ports. In order to not inhibit SuiteFactory this responsibility is off-loaded to the Path & Serial Port Validator!

Trace Server

This is used by CCI to Trace For Specific type of Errors and should never by seen by a general User. This needs to be activated by using particular command line commands. If you see this running please call.
