Conversion of T-Data Data Management Software Packages to Microsoft .Net Framework Technology
Improving information technology increases customers expectations from data management systems. Data acquisition and visualisation are vital issues to consider the efficieny of data management systems in industrial applications. Production control for the optimization of manufacturing operations leads to the collection of data entries from various remote data sources. Trützschler Company has developed the prototype of T-Data data management system for their customers in textile industry. This technology enables each customer to store the production data to the central database. A customer can access its own data and compare various data sets with other customers data in the system. This study covers potential solutions to satisfy the industrial requirements of T-Data. Conversion of T-Data to .NET Framework technology is considered as a potential solution to fullfil the requirements. Powerful data access components in .NET Framework increase the efficiency of data acquisition. In addition, implementation of data compression methods, improvement of the database structure and integration with dynamic web pages to provide online services are expected to enhance the performance of the system.
