HANNOVER MESSE 2018,
23 - 27 April
Flexible and multi-leveled workflows are indispensable to efficiently assemble products with many variants on the line. HYDRA users can now map the production procedure for a particular variant using the Dynamic Manufacturing Control (DMC) module. With DMC functions including product specifications, the digital image of the production process including relevant work steps can are stored in HYDRA. HYDRA DMC provides all necessary information for the relevant workstations in the required cycle time and, if required, intervenes in the process by using a powerful sub-system, the so-called Dynamic MES Weaver (DMW). Individually designed Dynamic Line Panels (DLP) easily guide the operator through the specified process. The process logic, located in the periphery, guarantees a continuous production of the assembly line even if the network has failed. DMC is fully integrated into the MES HYDRA environment and ensures that data, collected from the assembly lines, can be combined and evaluated with further information from production without interfaces. Assembly processes for products with many variants require on one side rapid working cycles and on the other, a continuous flow of information. The information flow contains, apart from digital working instructions, control commands for the connected periphery like tools, pneumatic screwdrivers or Pick-by-Light systems. Up to now, head controls based PLC technology organized intricate workflows. However, in the age of Industry 4.0 production companies require increasing flexibility that cannot be managed with PLC technology. This flexibility is needed to produce efficiently and inexpensively small batch sizes.
Industry 4.0 in particular: MES solutions for Smart Factory!
This makes MIP the first next-generation representative for production IT providing a flexible basis for applications close to production. Thanks to its open semantic information model, MIP facilitates the development of applications, since important basic functions and a common data structure already exist. This enables application developers to focus on the business logic.
