Bringing space-age technology to the factory floor
Originally developed in 1996 under a Small Business Innovation
Research contract for NASA Johnson Space Center, the
I/NET natural language
system was designed to control robotic assistants in space.
Now marketed as the I/NET Phone Automation Manager (PAM), the
same space-age technology is being used to control factory equipment
here on earth-making them run more efficiently and saving maintenance
and management time.
The easy way to increase factory uptime
Because PAM uses the latest in
Conversational Interface Technology, it's simple
to use. One call gives you up-to-date information about computer-controlled
- Follow up on alarms
- Check machine status
- Manage production
- Even customize to provide warehouse, stock, and order information
You don't have to memorize menu options, fight pre-set scripts, or get
shunted off into phone-tree dead ends. Advanced language capabilities
enable natural dialogue that goes well beyond scripted voice-recognition
prompts, so PAM:
- Requires less training
- Is less frustrating
- Is a more useful system
And PAM is also easy to install. The pre-built I/NET language
libraries for factory automation handle the processes for specific
system functions. There's no need to create complex dialog trees or
design specialized interactions during installation.
The easy way to add value to your equipment
Equipment manufacturers and end users can easily
extend the built-in language libraries to include new sensor signals
or accommodate other specific needs. PAM can also integrate flexibly
into a wide variety of systems.
