The PTC Digital Performance Management (DPM) application allows production assets monitoring and provides improvement in throughput and improves business operations. DPM is tightly integrated with PTC ThingWorx and allows connectivity for Kepware to collect real-time production data for production quantities, anomalies, scrap, and others. DPM dashboard is user customizable to monitor specific jobs and work units for overall operational monitoring and efficiency.
DPM utilizes its own SQL Server database for its operation and ThingWorx administrators can identify the assets to be included for DPM-based monitoring. DPM currently scales up to 250 Work Units. Refer to Sizing guidance for DPM-specific guidance. The deployment best practices for DPM are inline with ThingWorx with Microsoft SQL Server and users should refer to the best practices covered in this guide for better performance and scale for DPM deployment.
