JR Automation Introduces INGENOVA360 for Data Driven Manufacturing

Holland, MI – January 12, 2022 – JR Automation is pleased to introduce INGENOVA360 to the market, bolstering its position as a leader in combining advanced automation systems with IIOT and digital solution technologies. INGENOVA360 is a suite of software that fully connects manufacturing equipment to an intelligent planning and control system, delivering real-time information needed to inform strategic decisions on every business level – from supplier receiving to final packaging and shipping.  

JR Automation's digital capabilities include providing and fully integrating supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems with human-machine interface (HMI) systems and integrating those SCADA systems to its suit of MES systems.  JR Automation’s MES systems provide production-critical information to manufacturing processes while collecting real-time information from remote locations throughout a plant to display on a monitor or mobile device, enabling customers to optimize manufacturing operations.  

MES Systems are the foundation of INGENOVA360. These systems integrate to SCADA, ERP and Cloud layers and can also be relied upon to collect and share key production information. JR Automation’s digital portfolio offers several benefits, including:

  • Connecting the entire manufacturing facility by integrating data from every machine to a single source of truth.
  • Monitoring and adjusting production from a single device by viewing real-time information from multiple machines in different areas of the plant on one screen, providing actionable insights across all departments.
  • Having valuable data in hand for production, staffing, and inventory at the start of each shift. 

With the introduction of INGENOVA360, JR Automation brings to the manufacturing industry a full suite of proven software and integration capabilities to help manage and improve operations. INGENOVA360 provides a wide range of MES functions including warehouse, recipe, and maintenance management, OEE and quality management along with many other MES functions.  As manufacturers integrate automation in more areas of their plants, they can optimize those areas with intelligent software. Other advanced manufacturing software capabilities include inventory control and traceability, supply chain visibility, production planning and scheduling, and machine data analysis for predictive maintenance. 

“INGENOVA360 is going to be a game-changer for our customers,” said Craig Ulrich, CEO of JR Automation. “The increased emphasis on IIoT and Industry 4.0 across all verticals in manufacturing was a driving force in the development of this ground-breaking suite of technology.
