The Database Interface for ibaAnalyzer

ibaAnalyzer-DB, the database interface for ibaAnalyzer, allows for further aggregating the measured data length or time related and storing them along with the calculated characteristic values in databases.

ibaAnalyzer-DB at a Glance

Integration of basic process data - ibaAnalyzer-DB

  • Database extraction via ODBC/OLE DB provider
  • Transparent and comprehensible calculation and extraction of quality data and characteristic values (KPI) from high resolution raw data into databases
  • Using ibaAnalyzer and ibaAnalyzer-Reportgenerator based on database queries
  • Answering process-related questions by database analysis
  • Flexible Drill-Down to raw data

Calculation of Quality Data

With the iba system, production and quality data can be generated directly from data recorded with high resolution taking into account the above-mentioned requirements. For this purpose, high-resolution data must first be prepared appropriately with ibaAnalyzer, then aggregated with ibaAnalyzer-DB and afterwards loaded into a database.

Before data is loaded into the database, it can be fully „pre“-processed with the well-known analysis functions of ibaAnalyzer. In this process, existing analysis specifications can be used to extract a variety of data into the database, such as, for example:

measured signals

derived and calculated signals
(virtual signals)

statistic values,
such as maxima, minima, averages, standard deviations

characteristics calculated related to the product,
such as violations of limits, product blocking note, customer IDs, length calculations (e.g. undercoating length, prime piece length), etc.

Standard interface for databases

ibaAnalyzer-DB uses the standard interfaces OLE DB and ODBC for communication with the databases. Based on this concept, ibaAnalyzer can work with many different databases, such as, for example:

Product Highlights

Layer Model is broken

The classic layer model of communication in production automation is consciously broken through in order to be able to offer the following advantages:

  • versatile connectivity
  • fast data acquisition
  • data pre-processing right after generation
  • calculation of KPIs direct at the source
  • source of KPI data is known and traceable
  • drill down to raw data possible
  • flexibility in case of changes - if different or more data have to be extracted into the database, only the configuration but not the communication interfaces between the individual levels need to be adapted.
Automated Data Extraction

Although ibaAnalyzer-DB uses completed measurement files as a source, analysis and extraction can be automated in a very process-oriented way. Using the post-processing function in ibaPDA or ibaLogic, the analysis can be started immediately after a measurement file has been created. Additional utilities, such as ibaDatCoordinator or batch files, are available for more sophisticated solutions.

Product Features

Loading data into database – scalable extraction

The user can define any number of archiving profiles for extraction in order to reduce the data volume to a small but informative amount. Each measured signal can be individually assigned to an archiving profile.

Topology – from local to plant-wide analyses

When using ibaAnalyzer-DB with a local database, e.g. quality data of a plant can be analyzed, traced and managed clearly. MSSQL Express or MS Access databases are often used for such systems.

Database query

The standard query wizard of ibaAnalyzer-DB assists the user during database query or in searching for specific data using different criteria. Queries can be saved for later use and managed with ibaAnalyzer.

Database analysis

The read data can be viewed and analyzed in used way with ibaAnalyzer-DB. It is particularly interesting to note that analyses can also be carried out directly on the basis of the prepared characteristic values of the database.

This Software is one of many useful Add-ons of ibaAnalyzer

ibaAnalyzer is characterized by its broad capability for analyzing and evaluating data. The application is intuitive and offers an advanced set of functions. The license for analyzing measurement files, which have been generated with the iba system, is free of charge.
