Smart Factory Assembly Line Management and Monitoring

Helping a client stay up on their assembly line equipment
to reduce costs and improve uptime

Innodisk provided a comprehensive solution that enabled the client to always be in full control of their devices and equipment, significantly facilitating management and maintenance work

Introduction

Modern smart factories are full of advanced equipment and devices that are required to function at an optimal level and in perfect coordination with little supervision. However, with so many devices and so much data generated by all these devices, it can be extremely difficult for system operators to stay on top of such assembly lines. One client with a state-of-the-art factory hoped to improve efficiency and system stability by making management and maintenance work easier.

Result

By integrating all important equipment and devices with Innodisk’s iCAP device monitoring software, the client was able to drastically streamline factory management and reduce costs incurred by maintenance and planning work. With iCAP, the system operators also received timely alerts about potential device and equipment malfunctions—even when off-site—which facilitated timely repairs and replacements to improve system uptime.
