Case Study - versiondog in use at

Case study Aluar Crossing the Atlantic to Argentina Automation department at aluminium producer ALUAR trusts in versiondog Seldom has AUVESY been involved in a project that has required such little effort when it comes to installing and integrating its software. Aluar, one of South America’s largest aluminium smelter, has all but autonomously installed and configured the versiondog software. The few questions that do come in are immediately responded to by the Support Hotline at AUVESY. The case at Aluar only goes to show how simple data management and version control can be. Aluar is one of the largest aluminium producers worldwide and employs a workforce of 2,245 employees. In 2013, it generated a record revenue of 1.2 billion US dollars. The company is Argentina’s only producer of primary aluminium and has a production capacity which averages around 460,000 tons. More than two thirds of the primary aluminium that it produces is exported. Aluar produces ingots, bars, wire and aluminium alloys, which it then supplies to such industries as construction and automotive, to name a few. Since its inception, Aluar has maintained its commitment to delivering the highest quality in both its products and services. Aluar’s commitment to pursuing excellence in all processes is also accompanied by its commitment to continuous improvement and development. Naturally, this approach also applies to the automation department at Aluar. The dynamic and unconventional manner with which things tend to happen at Aluar was also seen when the company bought AUVESY’s complete software solution, versiondog.

Ares recalls the long way in the search for a suitable version control system. Usual “standard” text-based source control solutions were just not appropriate for versioning binary/proprietary data, while most specific automation version control software had irregular support between different controller brands or failed to deliver a solid version control architecture. In addition Aluar was concerned in automating the audit tasks, in order to ensure the correct program is running in each controller. Page 1/4
