  • AutoSave unifies plant automation software under one common user interface and results in a secure, well documented, controlled environment that dramatically reduces coordination constraints, wasted effort, and safety issues.

    Reduce Errors & Downtime:

    Common central repository of all program changes with automated retrieval

    The key to rapid recovery is the ability to access and download the correct automation program to the device. In providing a common central repository of all program changes, MDT AutoSave can ensure that if a device fails, the most current copies of program logic and documentation are available so plant operations can be restored quickly and correctly.

    Protect Users & Assets:

    Change comparison and notification; user access and security control

    AutoSave is designed to manage access to program areas and programs via a flexible privileging system.  When physical access to automation devices is prohibited (ensuring changes can only be made through MDT AutoSave) all changes in program logic are recorded by user, date, time, location and specific change detail. When physical access to the devices is possible, AutoSave periodically compares the program running in each device with the program copy on file in AutoSave and identifies any differences. An e-mail notification is then sent highlighting these differences. Click here for more information regarding AutoSave's change comparison features.

    Increase Quality and Compliance:

    Electronic approval and audit trails; historical record of changes

    There can be numerous disks and laptops located throughout the plant, each containing different program and document versions.  Inefficiencies are inevitable, costly and even dangerous. AutoSave's electronic approval and audit trail support ensures manufacturers that processes have not been altered without approval or documentation. AutoSave’s unique change control features, including internal security capabilities, have long been beneficial to regulated industry sites in meeting the requirements of the FDA, including compliance with 21 CFR 11.
