Real-Time VisualizationsIn the Automotive Industry

Peakboard for Serial Production and Supplier Industry.

Serial production in the classic sense has spread rapidly with the introduction of assembly line production in automotive engineering by Henry Ford. Series production is generally characterized by a limited number (series) of similar products, quality-related products and products with different manufacturing techniques.

Depending on the size of the series, a distinction is made between small, medium and large series, whereby series production with very small production runs or batch sizes comes close to individual production, but with very large quantities it approaches mass production.

In the age of Industry 4.0, Smart Factory and Mass Customization or Mass Personalization (individual mass production), the automotive industry will be more dependent than ever on IT-supported optimization and perfect interaction of all processes to meet the increasing demands.

The core tasks of the series producer are therefore to continuously increase quality, minimize changeover times and changeover costs, so that the lead times are shortened. With increasing international competition, it is no longer just a question of technical excellence, but also of economic efficiency – and the value-added potential in series production is far from being exhausted. Therefore, you can use Peakboard to present your key figures in a meaningful way.

Highest Possible Standardization and Automation Even With Individual Requirements.

That is Peakboard!

Whether automobile manufacturer, accessory manufacturer, OEM or supplier. Everyone faces the same challenges: Ever shorter innovation cycles, faster delivery times, more individual products with simultaneously smaller batch sizes and shorter product life cycles. In addition, there is the handling of big data as an challenge of Production 4.0. The ever-increasing flood of data, e.g. from machine utilization, personnel capacity and logistics, must be processed and prepared in such a way that everyone understands it in order to minimize risks, guarantee standards and create inter-divisional departmental transparency. This is where the potential of digitization comes into play.

With Peakboard you get an all-in-one solution consisting of hardware and software that helps you to visualize your production processes. With the Peakboard-Designer you can flexibly visualize different data according to your requirements. From shift schedules, production figures and plant utilization schedules to downtimes and material availability. Whether ERP systems such as SAP or machine data via OPC UA. With Peakboard you can visualize your data simultaneously on prominently placed monitors – on one or more screens in real time.

The visual display of your key figures enables you to achieve an optimal utilization of all production facilities, with the best possible production and material flow planning at the same time. Through the intelligent networking of the most diverse data, target/actual deviations are detected immediately, enabling a quick intervention. This makes Peakboard perfectly tailored to the specific requirements of serial production, resulting in a clear competitive advantage in all production processes – from logistics to production and assembly.

One Solution, many Applications.

Peakboard combines the simplicity and flexibility of a digital signage application with the complexity of business process data and metrics.

With Peakboard to “Mission Visualization“.

Your Customized Solution for Automotive Data.

The automotive industry was and is one of the most important industrial sectors in Germany. To withstand predatory competition, manufacturers and suppliers must now react more and more flexible to change requests and individualized variations. The problem with this so-called Mass Customization is the reinforcement of the already existing challenges of the automotive industry, which reduces the economic efficiency of the products.

With Peakboard, however, you have an inexpensive and safe tool at your disposal to let man and machine work "hand in hand". The real-time visualizations increase your revenue and at the same time keep your data quality high. Due to the completely freely configurable visualization of different data from SAP, Excel, machines and many more, Peakboard is suitable for companies of any type and size and supports the employees directly on site with real-time information. The high-quality display of data, for example as tables, diagrams or interactive buttons, enables the optimal utilization of production lines and the success-oriented use of material according to the just-in-time or just-in-sequence principle.

Use Peakboard as a visualization and motivation system for all departments to increase the quality of your products, to increase planning reliability and to be able to assess and eliminate possible risks in time. Interactive buttons allow you to manually or automatically write process changes back to your source system to ensure that your data is up-to-date. Through the combination of software and hardware, Peakboard is particularly secure and can be used throughout the company with no concerns.
