Powerful Document Management

Octoplant analyses the data and programs of many different automation equipment manufacturers. Its automated functions help deal with the flood of data and versions in any production environment. Octoplant not only manages data centrally, it also monitors and analyses changes in device software. And that includes changes made by external contractors. And synchronisation between Octoplant servers enables the distribution and monitoring of company-wide technical standards, including across different sites.


Version Control that works

With Octoplant SmartCompare it only takes a few clicks to get a detailed comparison of any two versions, and an  easy-to-understand analysis of differences. It can even display the results of a comparison graphically and in the same familiar way as the editor.


Automated Backups

Octoplant not only runs regular automated backups, it can even make detailed comparisons between the online program and the offline project. That means you can be certain that your automated device programs are current and correct. You always know exactly what version is running in production, and setpoints and parameters can be checked and restored if necessary at anytime. Benefit from the following:


Quality Management

Octoplant can be a solid foundation for your quality management and help ensure that your documentation meets certification standards such as GAMP, GMP, FDA 21 CFR 11, VDA 6.x and ISO 900x. Project data for all versions is stored centrally and available at any time, and full annotation means that all changes are quickly and easily comprehensible.

Factory Floor Status

Our web-based add-on, Octoplant Factory Floor Status, provides you with a comprehensive overview of your devices, including an MLFB overview, firmware versions, hardware serial numbers, cycle times, battery status, backup results and much more. The search function helps you quickly perform analyses and compile reports.


Predictive Maintenance

The new Octoplant Factory Floor Status feature is our innovative new solution that will help you keep on top of maintenance. This web-based add-on can be accessed from anywhere within the network to get a detailed picture of the status of the devices in a facility. Factory Floor Status not only shows you the status of automated backup and compare jobs, it also closely monitors and displays a wide range of other device information.
