REACH is a technology framework designed for development of solutions for consolidating / integrating seemingly heterogeneous requirements in a domain. There are distinct technology and functional groups and based on which the applications are classified into different categories.

Classification of Applications Developed using REACH
Classification of Applications Developed using REACH

Individual applications for multiple domains are developed using REACH. And multiple applications can be integrated into a single one. For example, the Video surveillance, Electrical panel monitoring, DG set monitoring, UPS monitoring, machine performance monitoring etc can be brought together as an integrated solution for a specific factory.

The applications mentioned below indicate the capability of REACH. Each one can be customised or extended as per the need of the requirement. It is possible to add on or remove modules from an existing REACH installation without reinstallation or stopping the system. REACH is on a continuous improvements path and it is ensured that each new development is backward compatible.

Integrated Factory Monitoring solution

REACH is a core system which can be tailored according to an application specification. Significant number of hardware modules and a vast number of software modules are intertwined seamlessly using a configuration engine, which creates the structure of the solution and a rule engine defines the behaviour of the solution.

To illustrate the complexity the of the solution REACH can create, a complex Factory Monitoring System is defined below. This is based on the requirement study conducted at a medium size stone polishing factory at Kochi, Kerala, India.
