How to generate savings with process control in assembly

1 minute(s) to read

Discover how mistake proofing techniques improve your process control, increase connectivity and generate savings.

Customer Challenge in automotive engine dress up assembly

An automotive manufacturer was in need of a new solution to improve it's engine dress up assembly. For the last years they have been working with a limited PLC based error proofing solution at one of the dress up lines which could only be expanded to other lines by a huge investement. Furthermore, the PLC based solution in  place was not able to manage NOK results to guide operators in rework or to identify and control the assembly in case of specific engine variants. This led to inefficency as well as high rework and operstors training costs.

Discover how we solved the issues and how many savings were generated:
