RDU Data Collection System Overview


System overview

System Overview

* The RDU data system is, primarily, an RF-Tag-based system.

* All process information and test results are written to the RF-Tag

* The data collection PC, using a database, collects all test results as well


System overview1

System Overview

* The part's serial number and its status (pass, fail, not tested) is read from the RF-Tag

* If process data (gaging information, shim call, etc) from upstream stations is needed, it is read from the RF-Tag

* After the machine completes its work, all results are written to the RF-Tag and to the central database


Collection of data

Collection of Data

Data is guaranteed to be recorded on the RF-Tag as well as in the database.

Each individual data path (RF or database) is trustworthy and automatically verified.


Data integrity database

Data Integrity - Database

Database transactions use a checksum to verify that data in the database matches that in the station.

* The station PLC generates a checksum before it sends its data.

* The database generates a matching checksum that is transmitted back to the station PLC after data collection.

* The PLC only accepts the transaction as complete if the two checksums match.


Data integrity rf tag

Data Integrity - RF-Tag

RF-Tag reads and writes always include verification.

* Two RF-Tag read operations are always performed together, and the two sets of data are compared to one another. The read operation is only considered successful if the two sets of data match.

* After an RF-Tag write is completed, the data is read back from the RF-Tag and then compared to the expected value. If there is any mismatch, the station automatically repeats the write until it succeeds.


Plc to pc interface

PLC to PC Interface

A simple, flexible, reliable tool (written in VB.NET) is used to collect data from the Main PLC, and then send that data to the database.


Database structure

Database Structure

Test results data is stored in a simple, event-based format. Each completed station cycle generates one basic record.

A final summary of the most recent basic records (one per station) is created for each part at the end of the assembly process.

The Reports Wizard constructs summaries of this data, depending on the purpose of the report.


Storage of data and redundancy

Storage of Data and Redundancy

The line has complete data redundancy because data is stored to both the RF-Tag and the database.

If the database fails, production can immediately resume using the RF-Tag system. No in-production data is lost (the line does not need to be cleared). At the end of the process, data will be read from the RF-Tag, then stored to an alternate PC.
