The Foxboro Company has said its Internet-enabled monitoring software is now supported by Oracle Corp’s subsidiary company Network Computer Inc’s network computer. Foxboro’s Statistical Process Control and Dynamic Performance monitoring software is said to enable corporations using the network computer to keep track of plant quality, performance and costs, providing up-to- the-minute decision support information. Foxboro’s software is written in standard Java-HTML, meaning it can be directly and quickly installed on network computers via the NC Access desktop, the system software for the network computer. Foxboro says its applications run on any Web-enabled system, and the network computer is an addition to the system support offered. The applications, known as SPC.com and FoxDPM.com are used in industrial automation processes by businesses in the manufacturing and industrial areas. FoxSPC.com is said to be a powerful application for statistical processing and quality control and includes charting, calculating, rules-violation detection and alarming and data filtering functions. The FoxDPM.com application includes the quality management of the FoxSPC.com software and adds simple plant level overviews of cost, quality and production. Foxboro says now these application are Web-enabled, staff can access the data from wherever they may be, across the world. Paul Miller, public relations manager at the Foxboro company says plant operational personnel are key users of the Foxboro products because they require this type of dynamic performance information to improve day-to-day plant performance. The Foxboro, Massachusetts company, established in 1908, is now part of Windsor, UK-based Siebe Plc.
