Critical Manufacturing framework
Critical Manufacturing has always been a pioneer in delivering comprehensive MES using the latest technologies. This is because from the beginning, we have looked out into the future. This has allowed us to base Critical Manufacturing MES on modern yet stable, production-ready architectures.
Critical Manufacturing's infrastructure framework for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) enterprise applications lies down at the bottom of everything we do. Its value resides within the following pillars:
Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) - through usage of state-of-the-art standard integrated components, strong focus on simplicity and ease of use, deployment and maintenance.
Agility - through powerful, extensible framework, rich functionality, and ease of customization and integration, and user screens each customer can configure yet upgrade.
Versatility - through a generic data model and rich, extensible, customizable application platform plus screens that work on any platform, including mobile.
World class performance reliability - through the usage of standard, proven, cost effective hardware & software solutions; architecture designed for performance, scalability and smart database partitioning.
Our infrastructure framework consists of three tiers that provide good partitioning, modularity and scalability of applications and are designed to work seamlessly together. Given the fact that every customer has its own special business requirements, the infrastructure was designed to be customizable and extensible across the three tiers:
Presentation Tier– handles all the presentation logic, that is the display of information (including localization/multi-language) and interaction with the user.
Business Services Tier - handles Security, Transaction Management, Configuration, Communication, Exceptions, Logging, Instrumentation, Caching, Context Resolution and Dynamic Business Rules. It also provides the plumbing for an object meta-model for the management of business objects.
Analytics Tier – provides persistence, reporting, data warehousing and data mining as well as extraction, transformation and loading capabilities.
