Monitoring Assembly Lines and Machine States
A large Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) with multiple products needed a method for tracking product flow and anticipating product changeover in a complex, highly engineered production system. To meet their needs, Sandalwood, a Xeratec development partner, developed a real time system arming plant management and production team members with the data necessary to identify bottlenecks, track special product runs and minimize production interruptions due to product changeovers. Xeratec in turn developed an application to monitor and display changes in the assembly line and machine states.
