Real-Time Machine Operation/Process Operation Display Human Machine Interface (HMI)

The MERLIN Operator Portal is an intuitive application that displays critical machine operation metrics and information while providing a real-time operator input to the MERLIN system.

The MERLIN Operator Portal enhances the detail of information collected by the MERLIN MES suite and is an essential tool which enables the operators to gather and classify critical down time states, part rejects and part counts. It also enables the operator to interact with work orders and send alerts.  It provides the operator with a live window into what information is being collected from the machine(s), dynamically updating every 5 seconds or so.


  • The Operator Portal is designed to run on Windows OS.
  • Deployment can be on tablets, computers, laptops and touch screen systems.
  • The application is untethered from specific machines providing the ability for operators to manage and monitor  multiple machine assets at the same time.
  • Provides the means to visually present critical information to the CNC machine operator
  • Allows the operator to log into the database which is collecting critical information from the machine.
  • It will prompt a user for critical down time information from any asset being monitored.
  • Operators can view and select production orders for any machine and monitor their operation, part count, and machine utilization all in real-time.
  • Operators can monitor all assets for which they are collecting data.
  • Pro-active email alerts can be sent out by the operator for any machine monitored for rapid response, such as maintenance, supervision and quality.
