1 Dream Report: The Technical Basics Renee Sikes Applications Engineer Dream Report Brand Manager

2 Agenda Review of Automation Challenges Overview of Dream Report Architecture Live Demo of Architecture – Project Wizard – Creating a connection to a database – Logging to a database – Creating a report – Using Dynamic Data Objects – Scheduling Report Generation – Running a Report – Accessing Reports Sales Information Q&A

3 Reporting for Automation Common Problems – Accessing both real-time and historical data from numerous sources – Costly to implement – Requires IT, programming skills – Manual data entry – Distribution and automation of reports – Resource intensive – Costly to maintain – Mobile support – Quality support and training – Licensing Dream Report is the solution!

4 Product Architecture Automatically Publish and Distribute Generate and execute Design and configure Data Logger Real-Time Data and Alarms Access existing 3-d party archives Design Reports Configure Data Aggregation Generate Reports HMIs, PLCs, DCS, SCADA, …  Web PortalFile Server PrintersMobile Connect to Data Sources HISTORIAN access OPC HDA ODBC & OLE CSV files Native drivers for proprietary archives REAL TIME data and alarms - OPC DA-AE - Native Drivers Dream Report logger can archive real time data into any open database SQL Server MySQL Oracle Access … Provide Data Provide Reports Design reports in easy environment Use Page Templates Use Report Templates Define and execute periodically any type of calculations: Min, Max, Average, Current, Integral, Duration, Counter, SQL commands, free Mathematical Calculation… Automatically:  On Schedule  On Event Manually:  Select Report  Change period or select batch  Generate new report

5 Reporting for Automation Common Problems –A–Accessing both real-time and historical data from numerous sources –C–Costly to implement –R–Requires IT, programming skills –M–Manual data entry –D–Distribution and automation of reports –R–Resource intensive –C–Costly to maintain –M–Mobile support –Q–Quality support and training –L–Licensing Dream Report is the solution!

6 Breadth and Depth of Data Connectivity Options Aggregates data from real time data sources, and existing historical sources – Access process and alarm data Designed for both Continuous and Batch processes Complements existing SCADA and MES applications

7 Variety of Data Types and Sources Supports direct connection to existing OPC data sources – OPC DA, OPC HDA, OPC A&E Can be connected to one or multiple ODBC databases – SQL Server, Oracle, MS Access, etc Built-in custom drivers for connecting to a variety of historians – Ex. DeltaV, Wonderware, Iconics, Pi, etc.

14 Scheduler and Automatic Distribution Methods Automatically generates and distributes.pdf,.xls, and web-enabled reports Automatic Schedule Distribution Methods Dynamic Report Generation Web Portal

15 Automatic Report Generation Generate on a schedule – Any time period, and combination of week days – Monthly, yearly, weekly, daily – Generate on a specific time interval – Define as many generation periods as you want Generate on event – Use a data source item as a trigger for report generation

16 Automatic Report Distribution Distribute reports to: – Web – – Print – File Server Combine distribution methods for increased reliability

17 Live Demo Project Wizard Manually Adding/Configuring Communication Drivers Setting up Logging Groups Configuring Dynamic Data Objects – Date/Time object – Single Data Object – Step Table – Chart Scheduling Report Generation Running Your Project
