RYAN BERTRAM


“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

After a 12 year-old Ryan visited the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, he knew he wanted to part of how America makes things. With continued interest in the art and science of manufacturing, Ryan pursued his Bachelors in International Business at Calvin College. After graduating, he realized his dream of working with manufacturing by holding client relations positions throughout the manufacturing industry. At Malisko, Ryan enjoys bringing together the right people for the right job to tackle complex projects, and helping to bring the total solution to the client's plant floor.

Personal Passion
He likes spending time with his family and helping his children to blaze their own trail.

Dream Job
Build houses for Habitat for Humanity

Interesting Fact
He secretly likes the handy-man "fix-it" list his wife gives him every weekend. (Shhh! don't tell her that though!)

OUR APPROACH

HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI) DEVELOPMENT

The Human Machine Interface (HMI) for your operators allows your team to control your system and monitor production. It provides them with real-time information about your system and shows them how their interactions with your system affect your production. And your operators won’t just have data; they’ll have data they can use — real and actionable.

We understand how important it is for your operators to have effective situational awareness so we develop HMIs to be clear, thorough, and user-friendly.

We understand how important it is for your operators to have effective situational awareness so we develop HMIs to be clear, thorough, and user-friendly.

CREATING USER-FRIENDLY HMI DESIGN

We design your HMI as a graphical representation of your automated system to meet your needs. Like many technologies, newer HMI methods can deliver measurable efficiency improvements and cost savings. We believe the best HMIs use technology to organize data around your goals and cater to the way your operators process information and make decisions.

Because your team needs data they can quickly process and do something with, we design our HMIs to provide them an understanding of both process details and bigger picture production trends. This efficient combination provides your operators the greatest possible situational awareness of your system.

When your team can easily see everything they need to know about your system, they can keep a beat on individual processes, ensure the smooth operation of your entire production operation and identify potential future needs.

With all kinds of production data available, we work with you to bring only the most important information into focus. We highlight the critical information, using contrast to differentiate various types of information, use repetition to highlight important operations, use consistent alignment to create visual connections between information and use proximity to group elements together. The result is a simple and understandable HMI that your team can maximize.

OUR HMI DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

To properly highlight the data that your team needs, we identify the relevant information your operators need.

First, we collaborate directly with you and them to understand precisely what information your operators require. We then pick the best software platform and features for your HMI platform; then work side-by-side with you to develop standards and guidelines. If we’re building on an existing platform, we can handle migrations of graphics to new systems to minimize operator re-training.

HMI SOFTWARE OPTIONS

We can use several HMI packages, depending on your needs. We routinely use FactoryTalk View, Wonderware InTouch, Wonderware Archestra or GE Fanuc’s Intellution. We are a Rockwell Automation Solution Partner and use FactoryTalk View as part of a PlantPAx solution. But we’re a fully independent integrator, and we’re not tied to any one platform.

INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION FOR RESULTS

In our more than 20 years of helping manufacturers, we’ve intelligently applied automation for hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries. And we’ve earned repeat business from 90 percent of our clients.

Have a question or do you want more output, fewer lost batches and better reports? We can show you how to improve your production and maximize your successes through industrial automation.
