Product Announcement from Parker Hannifin / Hydraulics Group
LAS VEGAS, March 11, 2008 – The IQAN Software Studios from Parker, the global leader in motion and control technologies, provides tools that cover all phases of a machine's life cycle, from development to product to after sales.
Parker understands that modern control systems involve the whole chain of a machine's life, known as the machine life cycle. This puts new demands on the performance of software tools at more than the traditional R&D level. Demands reach deeply into an OEM organization.
Contemporary OEM production departments want to automate, log and trace the machine delivery status; service departments want to handle warranties, offer proactive maintenance and provide machine upgrades; and machine owners want reliable machines with high productivity and low downtime. To meet all of these demands, IQAN Software Studios were designed to fulfill all of the needs of the machine life cycle.
Parker offers three different Software Studios: IQAN Creative Studio; IQAN Productive Studio; and IQAN Active Studio.
