Top 5 Applications of the
ROMARIC AUTOMATION CONTROL ENGINE ( RACE™)
The Romaric Automation Control Engine is a powerful software tool designed to help businesses optimize their operations, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. In this blog post, we will discuss the top 5 applications of RACE™ and how it can help businesses optimize their operations.
1. Digital Twins/Emulation
The Romaric Emulation System for Quality (RES-Q™) built on RACE™ is a tool designed to help reduce the risk of implementing a new control system by providing accurate emulation of various types of automated systems, including robotic devices, automated guided vehicles (AGVs), autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), transport systems, storage systems, and conveyors. It allows for the creation of virtual models of real-world automated systems. These virtual models can then be used to test and refine control systems in a safe and controlled environment without the risk of damaging or disrupting actual physical systems.
Organizations can greatly reduce the risk and costs of implementing new control systems by using RES-Q™ to emulate various automated systems. It allows for the testing and validating control systems before they are deployed in a production environment, ensuring that any issues are identified and addressed before they can cause operational problems.
2. Factory Integration
RACE™ is crucial in implementing factory integration in a fully automated environment.
TCP/IP, SECS/GEM, CORBA, TIBCO, MBX, DMQ, RMI, HSMS, VFEI, Object Bus, DTPF, and HMS are just some of the protocols and technologies that Romaric has used to connect its control systems to external applications.
Romaric can provide tailored solutions that seamlessly integrate with existing systems, enabling companies to leverage their current investments in technology while benefiting from the advanced control capabilities of RACE™.
3. Interoperable Fleet Management
The Romaric Material Dispatcher (Roma MD™) is a powerful tool built using RACE™ that enables interoperable fleet management in various industrial environments. Roma MD™ can simultaneously control and manage multiple types of automated systems, including robotic devices, AGVs, AMRs, transport systems, storage systems, conveyors, and more.
By using Roma MD™, companies can effectively manage and optimize their automated fleets, ensuring that materials and products are moved efficiently and accurately throughout the facility. Roma MD™ enables real-time monitoring and control of automated systems, enabling companies to quickly identify and address any issues that may arise.
Roma MD™ is designed to be flexible and scalable, making it suitable for use in a wide range of industries, including factories, warehouses, fulfillment centers, manufacturing facilities, and automated parking garages.
4. Throughput Optimization
In high-throughput operations, such as semiconductor front-end fabs, the efficient handling of material is critical to maximizing productivity and profitability. To address this challenge, Romaric has developed advanced routing and scheduling algorithms using RACE™, which can drastically increase throughput.
The advanced algorithms developed by Romaric using RACE™ are designed to optimize the flow of material through the AMHS, reducing the time required for material handling operations and minimizing the risk of errors or delays. These algorithms consider factors such as equipment availability, material priority, and transport distance to ensure that materials are routed through the most efficient and effective paths.
5. Your Application
With its multi-layer, multi-purpose architecture and library of functions, RACE™ has been packaged and released as a separate product. As a result, it allows other software development companies to build their own products that require robotic and machine interfaces and integration into a manufacturing or enterprise IT environment including warehousing, e-Commerce, and micro-fulfillment.
By adopting RACE™, companies can benefit from a powerful and versatile platform that has been extensively tested and proven in a wide range of industrial environments. In addition, RACE™ provides a solid foundation for developing equipment-side embedded controls or an automated control application, enabling companies to build customized solutions that meet their specific automation needs.
