industrial IT > Production Process Visualization MES + SCADA




The industrial IT systems offered by ASKOM are always tailored to the Customers' possibilities and specific requirements. Almost from the start of our business, we have offered dedicated IT solutions developed at the Customer's request and based on previously prepared specifications of business requirements and needs or as extension to existing automation systems. These systems are mostly addressed to Polish production companies (but we also have carried out implementations in the Polish plants of international concerns) and to implement them we use our own product: the SCADA Asix system (


Asix in addition to standard visualization and control, it allows effective data logging, reporting and generating of graphical trends, alarms management, creating recipes, process visualization on Internet, multilanguage support, production monitoring and tracking. All this is available through scalable licensing policy to match the size of the project.

More than 13 000 user licenses are an impressive achievement, which confirms the many strengths of Asix when successfully applied in various demanding fields, such as:

  • food industry,

  • chemical and mechanical industry,

  • automotive industry,

  • steel industry, power generation and heating, coking plants,

  • public utilities, smart buildings and telemetry systems.

Historically developed and offered in the market as a SCADA / HMI visualisation package, Asix has now many features to allow for its employment in applications for monitoring the consumption of energy utilities or the efficiency of machines that are already typical applications which carry out the functionalities of MES-class production management systems:

Recipe management and production tracking & tracing

The standard Asix package includes AsBase, a specialized tool for database maintenance, which is compatible with Microsoft SQL Server (also in a free Express version). It allows you to easily apply the recipes both in manual and automatic mode. Recipes are supported by the application using standard actions and visualisation objects, which means that the operator does not have to learn new control methods or the complex database utilities interface.

In addition to recipe support, AsBase offers manual or automatic registration of predefined data records which contain selected technological process parameters associated with a specific product or batch through a unique identifier. This allows production flow tracking and generating production documentation for a single product or product batch. Such product history is often required for formal reasons in order to make the product identifiable and ensure its quality and is often the basis of production management analysis.

Manufacturing assets management

Optimum utilization of production resources requires the availability of information about resources and statistics how they are used. Based on data collected from Asix application, the new AsService module can log the operation times and the number of times the devices are switched on-off. This makes possible to alert the user to carry out the necessary maintenance and repair operations and report any missed maintenance and log the related technical data for each monitored device. The AsService module manages asset (equipment and machinery) database which allows you to collect and properly group data pertaining to all devices. All information generated and processed by the AsService module (meter readings, maintenance operations, history of operations, ...) is related to the equipment specified in the database. For each device, it is possible to define a set of electronic documents associated with its operation, such as operation and maintenance manual, operating instructions, test protocols, flow charts, and other documents.




Maintenance support

Supervisory personnel often work in a tour of duty system and they do not have to be present on site all the time. However, they need to be reliably and promptly notified of any system abnormal operation or failure. AsAlert module offers this functionality in a smart way — the list of alert message recipients and the messaging schedule ensures that appropriate information reaches the relevant personnel at the given time. Messages can reach recipients in a variety of ways:

  • standard electronic mail over the Internet using SMTP protocol;

  • SMS text messages over GSM network;

Industrial IT / OT data bus between IT and automation systems

A wide range of communication protocols available in the Asix package enables the use as an IT / OT data bus, ensuring communication between automation systems (e.g. PLC, HMI, SCADA, DCS) and IT systems (MES / MOM) and cloud solutions.





Raw and pre-processed production data and machine resource data is usually required at higher management levels. Specialized MES/MOM and ERP systems must be fed with the production data. Asix is a natural tool for this purpose – it has all the information, pre-processed data and analysis results. Asix may share such data with the use of standard OPC / OLE Automation /.Net / REST mechanisms or using other selected format. With such a link, the data is coherent at all levels, and its delivery to the higher levels in the management hierarchy is facilitated.

ASIX as a platform for custom solutions

The wide range of functionalities, openness and scalability of the Asix system enable the creation of specialized applications, providing solutions to even very complex tasks set by customers. The use of Asix functionality is available through a programming interface (API), which enables the launch of external libraries with specialist technological knowledge, having complex algorithms, mathematical models, or elements of artificial intelligence - e.g. neural networks. The solution on the Asix platform allows programmers to focus only on specific functionalities, while ensuring protection of intellectual property

Currently, Asix is being used in many applications as a system platform, both for individual solutions aimed at the requirements of a specific customer, as well as in extensive products widely available on the market, such as:

  • Asix Energy - Energy Management System (EMS) used to monitor consumption of any energy media, such as: electricity, gas, heat, compressed air, water, waste water, etc. It clearly presents measured and processed data, supporting the process of taking strategic decisions aimed at optimizing production costs. […]

  • Asix OEE - a system for monitoring the efficiency of machines, production lines and entire plants. Assessing the productivity of machines and the number, duration and root causes of downtime, and hence losses, is the key to improving the competitiveness of manufacturing companies.

  • Asix CDAS - a comprehensive Central Data Acquisition System (CDAS) that enables reading, archiving, presentation and reporting of data from multiple sources (also other than Asix), which integrates various industrial environments and IT systems.

  • WAGO Visu Building - a modern Building Management System (BMS) offered by WAGO.
