Delivering an advanced and proven methodology for design, engineering and manufacturing techniques, AIS’s in-house DMS capabilities help customers facilitate new product development and bring new HMI control and monitoring solutions much faster to market with higher reliability and availability. AIS offers a comprehensive range of in-house capabilities including: engineering and management services, design and manufacturing, quality control, manufacturing engineering, as well as standards and certifications testing for customers.

AIS’s design for manufacturing services for HMIs and operator interfaces offer OEM/ODM and end user customers’ key benefits for new product development:

  • Intelligent and timely discovery, aggregation and prioritization of product success factors
  • Full visibility of project status for all active projects across the new product portfolio
  • Appropriate balance of resource investments with projected financial returns

Now Powered with Windows Embedded 8, AIS Open-Based Solutions Provide an HMI Solution for Convergence, Mobility and Other IT Technology Requirements

OEMs/ODMs and end users are challenged more than ever with achieving the highest degree of manufacturing effectiveness, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and operational efficiency while maximizing productivity and throughput. Sustainability issues, pressure for device convergence, security, operations that increasingly transcend borders, regulatory complexity and the emergence of new markets can be addressed with AIS design for manufacturability services and capabilities, and superior open, PC-based HMI solutions combined with Windows Embedded 8 operating systems.

Disruptive Technologies and New Technology Investment Requirements Drive OEMs/ODMs to Utilize AIS DMS and Open, HMI with Windows Embedded 8 Powered HMI Solutions

New information technologies such as cloud computing, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine-to-Machine communications (M2M), big data analytics and 3D visualization, are changing the world and having a huge impact on commercial and industrial plants and facilities. OEMs/ODMs and end-users are typically slower to adopt new leading edge technologies and historically conservative to invest in new technology areas. They will need to make substantial investments to stay competitive or be put at risk of a disruptive technology displacing their business model or competitive foothold. AIS helps these companies address technological demands by delivering prudent designs, engineering, manufacturing and superior open PC-based HMI solutions coupled with Windows embedded 8 operating software. AIS open platform strategy provides an affordable migration path to embracing new information technologies on the manufacturing floor, warehouse and logistics and at the enterprise level.

AIS Open and PC-Based HMIs Combined with Windows Embedded 8 Poised to Capitalize on the $1.5 Billion Growing Market for HMI and Operator Interfaces

AIS open-based visualization operator interface panels and Windows Embedded provide a platform that can be utilized to build sustainable, converged intelligent systems. Solutions can be highly customized in manufacturing environments to fit the needs of OEMs and their customers, but offer high degrees of security, reduced costs, and faster time-to-market. Windows Embedded connects diverse technologies throughout manufacturing environments while increasing revenue generating opportunities. The combined solution of AIS HMIs and Windows Embedded 8 helps companies extend their operational intelligence, using their existing IT infrastructure and industry devices that securely exchange data with back-end systems.

AIS’s design and engineering capabilities, HMI systems and Windows Embedded 8 operating system help build sustainable, converged industrial solutions with state-of-the-art HMI elements. These solutions meet the expectations of a diverse workforce set by increasingly intuitive consumer devices in personal use. They also offer customers familiar tools and design solutions, a high degree of security at reduced cost, and reduced time-to-market. Finally, integrated solutions using AIS HMIs and Windows Embedded powered solutions connect diverse technologies while maintaining compatibility with industry standards.
