ŠKODA Transforms the Maintenance Ecosystem with Augmented Reality and IIoT
Lukáš Kousal, Manager of Technical and SMART Maintenance in Press Shop, ŠKODA AUTO a.s. and Jiří Parma, IT Smart Maintenance Project Manager, ŠKODA AUTO a.s.
The Press Shop ŠKODA AUTO a.s. needed to develop a brand-new condition monitoring system to monitor the Schuler PXL Press Lines, and help the maintenance department monitor key devices and values. SMART Maintenance FIOT deals with the whole maintenance ecosystem including data collection, condition monitoring, smart maintenance, predictive maintenance and augmented reality. The FIOT system monitors the Press Lines and their parameters, compressed air consumption, energy consumption, the flow rates and temperatures of cooling water, the temperatures of the main motors, pressing force values, vacuum, PROFINET networks, etc. The FIOT has features like 3D model (digital twin) visualizations, an alert subsystem, augmented reality and links to the relevant documentation. The system, which is based on OPC communications and the ThingWorx IoT platform was built by Czech company FOXON s.r.o. The FIOT is represented using the web app and the mobile tablet which is user-friendly. Watch this session replay to learn how ŠKODA is transforming their maintenance ecosystem through digital transformation.
Computer-Aided Production System (CAPS): The Future of Production
David Siep, Assembly Process and Technology Specialist, Knorr Bremse SfS GmbH
Watch this recording to hear how Knorr Bremse Sfs GmbH has integrated all major systems and platforms within their company through a CAPS (Computer Aided Production System) project. You will learn how they decided to enhance their PLM environment with a MPMLink installation to establish the manufacturing-oriented capabilities. Using MPMLink to model their manufacturing and assembly processes by creating detailed process plans, with exact part allocation, the creation of manufacturing optimized bills of materials and maintaining also production-related resources generates immense synergies. Besides the MPMLink side of their project, you will also hear how they created a globally used application (leveraging ThingWorx) to display and transport the manufacturing-related information into the production locations to assure stable, reliable and safe manufacturing processes.
