The new HMI platform for machining
ConceptHMI® is an industrial software framework designed to ease the development of powerful and sophisticated HMI applications in automation. The object model of ConceptHMI® provides everything that is necessary to design easy-to-use and very flexible SCADA applications that you can connect to any CNC, PLC or IPC based machines. On top of that, it naturally takes into account the variability of configurations of real machines and of highly flexible processes. And to meet the extensibility needs of today’s machines, HMI applications can even be extended through a “plug-in” mechanism.
Ready-to use services
ConceptHMI® uses the Microsoft.Net Framework and WPF to efficiently build stylish Human-Machine Interfaces. The whole platform is written in the C# programming language.
Applications developed with ConceptHMI® provide a revolutionary look and feel to the user, which is a much appreciated asset in today’s market, as a high level of importance is placed on the user-experience and design quality of a product.
Nowadays, the machining processes require ever increasing flexibility. This market trend is driven by the desire to ensure diversity in the production and to minimize costs. Consequently, the management of this complex requirement for flexibility has become the key to success in the development of applications in automation. Indeed, 80% of the capacity of innovation resides in software, but it also represents 80% of the risks. ConceptHMI® by itself promotes the use of structured methodology and considerably reduces risks to master the complexity of very demanding projects.
Structuring the business knowledge
The automation market is distinguished by a very large know-how of the machining process. This experience, disseminated within the employees mind, is the most valuable wealth of the companies. Objectis Software Development Methodology (OSDM) devotes particular attention to structure and consolidate this knowledge in a formalism accessible to all.W hen used in combination with OSDM, the framework ConceptHMI® dramatically reduces the volumes of code, thanks to its implementation model that strongly factorizes the development, as well as a large set of highly reusable functionalities.
Develop applications extremely rapidly
The vocation of ConceptHMI® is to provide the ability to develop very flexible and intuitive human-machine interfaces extremely quickly. Based on the benefits of an object-oriented approach and on a vast experience in automation, this SCADA framework is ideal for designing HMIs to configure, control and supervise machining processes. ConceptHMI® provides code factoring mechanisms and easily-reusable components increasing productivity and reducing costs by a factor of 2 to 10. It intensively uses skinnable technology to enable the development of highly-customised solutions including touch-enabled applications
Extensive software architecture
Innovation & differentiation skills are two essential factors for surviving in the highly competitive machine and automation market. Machine and measuring instrument environments are by nature extremely scalable. By intensive use of modern software engineering principles and of object-oriented patterns, “Concept” delivers its full potential on highly flexible automated solutions where:
- The process is flexible and needs to have the ability to be fully configurable by the end-user.
- The machine can be adapted to your end customers requirements by through the use of plug-ins. This makes your application more flexible.
Empowered by innovative technologies
ConceptHMI® is an industrial software platform at the leading edge of technology. It is heavily based on Microsoft’s presentation technologies (WPF) and the .NET Framework, which take advantage of your hardware, such as the GPU. It’s scalable and adapts computer technologies with high added-value to the automation industry. As a result, ConceptHMI® provides state of the art technologies to your business.
