Abstract [en]

Industries get more computerised each day. At Sandvik Coromant’s factory in Gimo, Sweden, standard computers control various machinery, often by specialised software. When a production cell halts fore some reason it usually notifies the operator by splashing on the computer screen. This ties the operator to be near the automation cell to detect a machine stop. Furthermore, there is no computerised way to log the cause or solution to a machine stopping event or share such information between operators and machine cell engineers in an easy way. This master’s thesis will describe the development and implementation of the General Message System (GMS) at Sandvik Coromant Gimo, Sweden. The two main features of the system are: • Receiving events from various applications over a network and notifying interested persons via email or Short Message Service (SMS) based on their calendar and the priority on the event. • Providing the ability to input new, and search among previously inputted text describing what was done to solve the (possible) problem that caused the event. This is achieved by sending events as SNMP traps from an application on a computer controlling a production cell to a server running the GMS software. The GMS software then logs the events in a database and notifies interested persons by email or SMS (through a GSM modem). This is achieved by sending events as SNMP traps from an application on a computer controlling a production cell to a server running the GMS software. The GMS software then logs the events in a database and notifies interested persons by email or SMS (through a GSM modem). In addition, the system also interacts with it’s users through a web application that provides for administrative functions such as user and group handling capabilities that allow for a high degree of customization on how and when each user should be notified about various events.
