The patent application (Publication Number: US20240025099A1) describes an apparatus and method for monitoring system data from various local tool-based controllers and sensors in an injection molding system (IMS). The apparatus includes a computer-implemented device with executable instructions stored on a computer-readable medium, allowing the processor to receive system data, process it based on user identification, display available tasks on a graphical user interface, receive user input, and communicate with local controllers. The method involves receiving system data inputs, generating tasks based on user class and access device, outputting tasks for user selection, and updating tasks based on user input. The system includes multiple local tool-based controllers and sensors, a processor, a network interface, and executable instructions for monitoring and controlling the injection molding process.

The apparatus and method outlined in the patent application aim to enhance the monitoring and control of injection molding systems by efficiently processing system data from various controllers and sensors. By incorporating user identification and access device information, the system can tailor available tasks for specific users, improving the overall management of the injection molding process. The system's graphical user interface allows for easy visualization and interaction with the tasks, enhancing user experience and facilitating effective control of the local tool-based controllers. Additionally, the system's ability to aggregate and store system data inputs in a data repository ensures comprehensive monitoring and analysis of the injection molding process, contributing to improved efficiency and quality in manufacturing operations.
