Bosch is one of the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers. For almost 50 years, the company has been producing a range of semiconductors for use in consumer and entertainment electronics, wearables and vehicles. In their Reutlingen based factory for 200mm semiconductors, Peakboard was introduced to display target/actual comparisons of individual production stages in real time using various Andon boards.
To take the next step towards operational excellence, the BWI Group from Greenfield, Indiana combines real-time data visualization and MES functions in one system. The already existing OPC UA Kepware server for bundling and distribution of information from the machines accelerates the implementation.
At ZARGES in Weilheim, around 30 monitors present details about all the company’s production line processes in real time. This helps the light metal manufacturer to improve its utilization of production robots. The company has installed a complete MES, and is also mining new information from its data, which it uses for its business intelligence.
GBA Group is among the leading analysis laboratories and service providers in Europe. Its core competencies are in the areas of environmental, food, consumer good and pharmaceutical analysis. In order to optimize their project-related internal communication in 14 locations, GBA Group was searching for a cutting-edge IT solution. Peakboard was implemented at their Pinneberg location in order to share lab information to a wide variety of employees via four monitors at central locations throughout the company.
With some 800 employees worldwide, Helmut Fischer GmbH is a full-service supplier in the field of surface testing and has been developing precision instruments for surface measurements since 1953. Helmut Fischer uses Peakboard at regularly scheduled shop-floor meetings to ensure process transparency in production and logistics and, at the same time, to monitor delivery reliability, quality, and costs, as well as to identify potential disturbances at an early stage.
Corratec has manufactured all types of high-quality bicycles at its Raubling site in Bavaria since 1990. The bicycle manufacturer’s experience has proven that getting started in a smart factory is easier than one might think. Corratec uses Peakboard to learn about the status of production at a glance, and it can immediately recognize any problems that arise.
Pankl Racing Systems wants to increase its operational excellence by creating a comprehensive digital map of production. One particular challenge that it faced: It had large amounts of data, and it wanted to be able to make later adjustments without being dependent on third-party providers.
Aquis Systems is incorporating an operational excellence platform for its production stations as it says goodbye to Excel as a tool for digitally mapping the shop floor.
