Data Collection, Analysis / Reporting and  Process Optimization

Collecting, reporting and analyzing production data is an important Capability to leverage Quality Management and Process Improvement. Tracking and Tracing of components, modules and finished products (forward and backward) becomes increasingly important for Supply Chain Management and Quality Assurance.
Key topics and requirements we meet in the Automotive Industry:

  • Monitor manufacturing, process capabilities and enable efficient decision taking
  • Support Continuous Improvement Processes and Cost Reduction Programs
  • Provide data to support process design ptimization and product design which allows easy and cost effective  manufacturing
  • Collect and analyze all relevant quality and capability related data ( dimensions, torque, pressure, hardness,  testing results, etc.) and send warnings, alerts or action plans (operator GUI) when set borders are violated
  • Provide seamless records of changes to the manufacturing process and allow to have this changes tracked on product level (which product went through which process)
  • Assure traceability of components and products across your value and supply chain
  • Collecting data is one thing,  making operational sense of it and communicating it seamlessly to all people involved in decision taking processes an other. – Our Expertise helps you getting there

Frequent parting points for Machinery and Equipment Integration, Automation and MES Implementation Projects

  • Paper based documentation processes or isolated data availability are not appropriate when high production volumes and manufacturing processes across different sites are to be handled
  • Process steps realized manually or by stand alone solutions in the past to be replaced by integrated machinery, equipment and automation solutions
  • Communicating of  process, order and Work in Progress (WIP) information is necessary or needs to be more detailed
  • Demand for records of quality data, traceability of material, components and products driven by customers and industry standards
  • Robust and consistent integration of new or existing machinery and equipment  within a heterogeneous system landscape becomes necessary to improve process control
  • Increasing production volumes and  ramp ups demand scalable software solutions
  • Number of products and customer specific variants will increase
  • Shorter product life cycles demand greater flexibility of manufacturing processes
  • Integration of additional equipment, new manufacturing lines, sites and subcontractors becomes necessary
  • Seamless communication across distributed manufacturing processes needs  to be assured.
  • Visibility throughout value and supply chains is necessary, traceability, order and WIP Information needs to be available
  • KPI based reports and analytics needs to be available for manufacturing and business process optimization
