The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for maintenance departments in automated production plants around the world. Plants have had to get creative about many things – staffing, physical spaces, and daily processes to name a few. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many changes for automation engineers and maintenance staff such as:

  • More remote working
  • Avoiding social interactions in enclosed spaces
  • Avoiding physical contact
  • Avoiding shared equipment
  • Working in “bubbles” with smaller teams
  • Less bandwidth for manual device backups

How does versiondog help simplify industrial automation during the COVID-19 pandemic?

With versiondog, you can automate backup jobs all throughout your facility, saving time and effort even with reduced staffing. Backups are configured to run on a time-based schedule, so manual effort is reduced to a minimum. Automatic backups alone create more maintenance capacity, so that teams can spend less manual time and effort on backups and more time on more important tasks.

versiondog also improves data clarity, even with remote work and less in-person communication due to COVID-19. Users can quickly see who changed, what, when, where, and why, even if they are working on different shifts or in different locations. Using versiondog also increases plant safety by monitoring devices for unauthorized changes.

Lastly, versiondog eases the manual effort needed to document change history. In versiondog, you can quickly and easily compare the changes made throughout a project’s history at the click of a button. This improves documentation practices without significantly increasing the workload on maintenance team members.
