FASYS Version 2022.1
A wide range of new enhancements have been made in FASYS 2022.1. These include major upgrades to areas such as:
- New Database library in FASYS applications
- KWZIST logging history
- Delta Logic interface for S840D
- Shopfloor client enhancements
- Update to .Net 6.0
- DataAccessServer replaced with new REST Web-API
- License Server SQL Compact replaced with SQL Lite
- Interface to PTC® Creo Parametric 9
New Database library in FASYS applications
In FASYS 2022.1, a new database layer is included in the FASYS application. This gives home office workers better support, because the database connection is opened only when needed. When there are network connection problems, the application can reconnect to the FASYS database.
KWZIST logging history
In FASYS 2022.1, new logging is available for physical tool management. The new classes KWZISTLOG/SN have been created to store this logging information in the database. Every change on a physical tool is logged with the help of database triggers. This benefits the analysis of physical tool changes in support cases and it can be used for reporting of physical changes over time.
Delta Logic interface for S840D
It is now possible to run the FASYS backup with a Delta Logic connection to download NC files from the NCU. The changes on the machine will be detected, compared, and stored as a backup in the FASYS database. The backup functionality is included in the standard software.
Tools on machines
It is now possible to write new tool information via DeltaLogic API into a Sinumeric 840D control. Furthermore, the tool data can be read out from the control via the tool number or ID. The data is provided from the KWZIST class. With the help of the Delta logic interface, users can make a tool data inventory from the machine.
Shopfloor client enhancements
Configuration of buttons in shopfloor client
Users can add any number of buttons in the shopfloor client. Via an XML configuration, it is possible to set up, for example, a DNC-button which can start the tool inventory.
Load tools into machines
Tools can be selected with a holder number and then transfer via DNC Server to the machine in the machine control.
Read QRcodes on iPads
It is possible to read QRcodes to select production orders. Additionally, a tool holder number can also be scanned for physical tool selection based on tool holder numbers.
Update to .Net 6.0
The .Net core 3.1 will no longer be used and has been updated to .Net 6.0. This currently affects the shopfloor client back-end. Due to the multiple performance enhancements of the .Net 6.0 version, the shopfloor back-end performance is increased.
DataAccessServer replaced with new REST Web-API
The old Data Access Server implementation used a SOAP interface implemented with WCF. Now the new server uses industry-standard REST Web-APIs. This will help provide better compatibility to external componentsand cloud services.
License server SQL Compact replaced with SQL Lite
The component SQL compact is no longer supported by Microsoft®. The dependency to SQL compact has been replaced by the SQLite, to enable the return of usual reporting functionalities.
Interface to PTC® Creo Parametric 9
A new interface to PTC® Creo Parametric 9 has been developed.
FASYS Version 2022.0
Shop-Floor Client UI enhancements
The user interface in the shop floor client has been significantly improved. This includes for example the implementation of variable QM links. Each of these improvements creates a better experience for all user groups and makes it easier to work on mobile devices.
When searching for tools hits are now only shown from the following classes: KWZ, KWZHOLDER, ensuring that only relevant records are returned.
Set maintenance reports as uncompleted
In addition to set as "completed" maintenance reports can now also be defined as "uncompleted". This means that completed maintenance records can be reused if required.
Customize NCPV layout
Now it is possible to adjust the WEB subclass of the NCPV via the Fanconi. These changes will take effect after a restart of the web server on the client view.
Increased number of selected machines in the home page
Now more machines can be added to the list of previously selected machines, up to 10 machines can be used.
Button bar removed from the order view
The button bar has been removed for the search and the home page, giving the user more space on the order view, which makes the interface much cleaner and more information becomes visible.
Clearer layout in the tables
The same formatting is now seen for texts in the table as in the class mask for the shift, maintenance and message view. This provides better formatted and user-friendly tables.
Generic solution for customized link dialog on machine page
A new user defined link dialog is available in the shop floor client. The dialog is started by a button in the machine detail area and customized by a configuration file.
Predefined search for NC programs and jobs
It is now possible to specify predefined search values in NC program and NC job search masks to reduce the number of rows after searching.
Inventory management enhancements
Previously, the replication solution was not able to replicate inventory changes. This feature allows you to see physical resource information between plants and optimize the use of resources at the storage location.
Replication of inventory data
From now on inventory stocks can be viewed across all locations and, if required, can also be transported using transport storage locations.
Partitioning global storage information by location
From now on global storage is associated to the plant and all known counters are also available for each plant separately, so it is possible to see how many items are available in my assigned plant.
It is now possible to use ActiveMQ to receive ERP queue messages via the data access server. The queues are configured in the class "queue service" and the data access server watches the configured queues for messages. A first message handler for SAP2FATOOL messages is already realized.
NCSIMUL 2022.0 support
With the latest interface FASYS is compatible with the NCSIMUL 2022.0 version.
Heidenheimer DNC components support
The Heidenheimer DNC components are supported which makes it possible to transfer data for the DNC as well as for the tool cycle.
New Fastens interface
Fastens is used to optimize the manufacturing process of machines. To provide tool data for this product a new server component was developed.
FASYS server installer
With the new installer, the setup of a new FASYS server can be done within a few minutes. Various features can be installed on demand, such as a SQL express database, creating user groups, setting up network shares, installing DNC components, copying software files, copying configuration files and setting up our services.
Update to .Net 3.1
The framework has been updated to the latest version of .Net Core 3.1 to ensure support for the OASys shop floor server after the end-of-life of .Net core 2.1 in August 2021. Apart from the higher speed of the backend after the upgrade to .Net Core 3.1, there is no difference in the user experience.
