Smart Data Management improves manufacturing efficiency

Smart Value Stream Management

Hechingen's smart value stream is based on an AI module (artificial intelligence) and a system for human-machine communication. On the MES level (Manufacturing Execution System) manufacturing data is collected and analyzed to calculate cycle times for an optimal material flow. The data is provided to the PlC of the process equipment and therefore the value stream can be managed proactively. Direct communication between human and machine is facilitated through a smart watch application which allows for a real-time appropriate maintenance response.
