MDT AutoSave unifies 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. AutoSave allows users to :
Reduce Errors & Downtime The key to rapid recovery is the ability to access and download the correct program to the device. In providing a common central repository of all changes, MDT AutoSave can ensure that if a device fails, the most current copies of program files are available so plant operations can be restored quickly and correctly.
Increase Quality & Compliance
There can be numerous disks and laptops located throughout the plant, each containing different program versions. Inefficiencies are inevitable, costly and even dangerous. 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. AutoSave's electronic approval and audit trail support ensures manufacturers that processes have not been altered without approval or documentation.
Protect Users & Assets AutoSave is designed to manage access to program folders 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 the program 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
