TrakSYS is a software application and solution platform designed to help you manage the performance of your entire manufacturing operation in real time, from any web-connected device. That’s asking a lot. We should know. We’ve been doing this for almost thirty years. In that time we’ve gotten very good at making the complex ‘as simple as possible.’ (We can‘t take credit for that clever turn of phrase; Einstein said it first.)
TrakSYS is a product of this disciplined approach. It’s a unified, web-based platform that contains all the code necessary to run key manufacturing management applications right out of the box. And it has built-in administration and configuration tools, so you don’t need to write custom code to create custom applications or every time you want to make a change. (You’re welcome.)
TrakSYS 10 can be installed in just minutes. And with its included configuration tools, TrakSYS 10 makes deploying an application 60% faster.
TrakSYS is a single, unified web platform offering configuration, development, administration, real-time operations and data analysis/reporting. Users are presented with menu options and pages based on their configured roles and permissions.
The TrakSYS user interface supports “responsive design” principles. Responsive design allows for interfaces that render differently on various screen sizes, e.g., PC, tablet, or smartphone.
A development-to-production publishing utility supports the separation of configuration and user interface changes. This allows for user-interface-only changes without interrupting data collection.
TrakSYS turns the traditional pull-poll architecture on its head and introduces a new push model. The server monitors data changes and pushes UI updates to client screens only when data changes occur. This reduces server load and improves the user experience significantly.
In addition to the significant out-of-the-box functionality and standard configuration tools to create tailored solutions, TrakSYS 10 also provides solution libraries that may be used as-is to address many areas of manufacturing operations.
The TrakSYS standard function libraries can be readily adjusted to create focused solutions in a fraction of the time compared to traditional development. This important functionality delivers rapid deployment and cost-effective extensibility.
If desired, a single instance of TrakSYS can manage multiple sites. While all sites are hosted within the same database and server, each site’s configuration and user interface is kept in a separate “silo” and protected from users at other sites.
TrakSYS allows for more flexible authentication, by supporting simultaneous Windows Active Directory sign-in (for users with existing business network access), and TrakSYS specific logins (for plant-floor users without Windows accounts).
TrakSYS contains a built-in infrastructure for defining placeholders and providing language translations for solution-specific user interface strings.

The following is a recommended server configuration (minimum) for a TrakSYS implementation that contains a small footprint, with few Systems (<10), few Definitions (<500), and few Users (<20). This type of server would be used for initial rollouts where a part of the process or functionality is implemented. When using this type of small hardware configuration, the project team should be aware that as the software use expands, the server hardware may need to be upgraded, or even replaced with a more powerful platform.
The following is a recommended server configuration (minimum) for a TrakSYS implementation that covers a full manufacturing process with many Systems, Definitions and Users (see details of these described above).
