CodeIT Enterprise™ – Configuration instead of programming

its-all-about-people

Integrating the top floor with the shop floor drives increased operational efficiency in line with Industry 4.0 and Smart factory thinking, a production with shorter adjustment and lead times, fewer errors, more flexibility and no time-consuming programming. CodeIT Enterprise™ is configurable to customer requirements, even after installation. Everything is done by configuration, graphic user-interface, processes, data, logic, permissions, variables and functions. Configuration instead of programming leads to significant cost savings in the future, additions of equipment, layouts, systems is easy to do. There is always possibilities to make changes and the code is not changed even though the software is tailored for your business.

Configuration vs programming
• Benefits with configuration using prebuilt functions
• High flexibility to make changes, even online changes without stopping process
• Sequences of functions are configured like a ”program”, to make things happen in a certain order
• Less testing, since functions are already tested
• Freedom of choice in terms of hardware (printers, I/O etc)
• No need for source code management
• Configuration changes can be made by in-house (trained) staff or by CodeIT staff.
• New future functionality available via license agreement
• Easier to support, since all functionality is in the configuration. No need to find a valid source code.
