生產資訊系統與自動化生產製造，關係密不可分。自工業3.0以來，各種資訊科技導入並應用於生產線，協助追蹤與管理於整個生產製造過程中的所有活動。特別是對24小時全天候自動化運作不停歇的生產工廠而言，生產資訊之即時監控，有助於減少人為作業的疏失，並提升生產效率。 本個案C公司是一個24小時自動化運作不停歇的生產工廠。生產資訊系統於2004年時導入，隨著使用年限拉長，系統硬體老舊過時，需透過工程師定期持續的維護，使系統得以穩定的提供服務，以滿足工廠自動化生產運作之需求。2014年，由於生產資訊系統硬體原廠Oracle通知，生產資訊系統硬體將於2015年底被終止支援服務 (End of Support, EOS) ，硬體零件將不再生產與銷售，一旦硬體零件庫存用完後，原廠將無法再提供此硬體後續的維修服務。若不進行對策，C公司的生產資訊系統硬體被EOS問題，將成為自動化生產能否穩定運作之重大潛在風險。 故本個案對C公司生產資訊系統進行分析，提出一個解決對策的方案組合，並透過驗證證明它是可行的，用以解決C公司生產資訊系統硬體被EOS問題。

Various information technologies have been adopted in the manufacturing setting since the Industry 3.0 era. Production information systems have been used to track and manage all activities through out the entire production processes, especially for non-stop 24-hour operations in automated production lines. Real-time monitoring provided by the systems has been heavily relied upon to reduce human errors, and improve production efficiency. This study looks into the problem facing Company C, which runs a non-stop 24-hour automated production facility. Its production information systems were installed back in 2004, and have been outdated. Ongoing and regular maintenance work is the key for the systems to provide stable services to its operations. In 2014, Company C was notified by Oracle, the original computer vendor, that the computer hardware executing the production information systems would face the EOS (end of support) situation by the end of 2015. EOS means that spare parts for maintenance would no be available, apart from those in stock. Once the parts runs out, the original vendor could not provide any further maintenance services. The EOS problem faced by Company C is a critical potential risk factor for any plant with automated production lines. This study analyzed the related production information systems in Company C, and proposes a portfolio of action items to cope with the EOS problem. The solution was examined and found to be feasible.
