“Data is key” – Insights in your manual operations
For manufacturers it is essential to improve all aspects of their operations. Therefore, it is crucial to create insights in the processes, systems and machines, allowing the manufacturer to collect valuable data and give him more ways to analyze the operations. These data can as such enhance productivity and performance, ensure product quality, optimize decision-making and lower costs, which are all essential aspects in his drive towards Industry 4.0. Most manufacturers are able to capture data from their automated processes (sensors, IO, PLC, robots, drives, etc.) but they are still collecting data from log sheets or operator displays for their manual operations.
With the Arkite platform, manufacturers are now also able to capture relevant information regarding the manual operations in their facility. Every manual assembly or picking task will be logged with the corresponding timestamp, allowing the manufacturer to perform time studies, line balancing and process improvements. Additional parameters and variables can be stored. This will give manufacturers more insights into their production processes and the way the product has effectively been made by their workers.
Arkite’s standard ‘out-of-the-box’ dashboards provide manufacturers the tools to deep-dive in their production processes. Reports, such as ‘Workstation Status’, ‘Product Output’, ‘Cycle Times’ and ‘Current Step Duration’, are automatically generated and readily available in the Arkite software. Manufacturers can further use the generated data in their own reporting tools such as BI reporting or any MES/ERP platform, creating additional insights regarding quality and efficiency. The Arkite Operator Guidance platform gives the manufacturers now the combined information of their automated – and manual operations, which is essential to further optimize processes across the manufacturing plant.
Guiding I/O module assembly at Petersime
- Step-by-step digital work instructions through projected AR
- Supporting multiple product variants
- Reducing picking and assembly errors
- Training and supporting new operators
Petersime was looking for a solution to support the operator during the assembly of an I/O module. The solution provides highly precise augmented reality projections on the workbench. The systems make it easier for new operators to perform complex tasks with a high variability. Arkite’s increases customer quality by reducing picking and assembly errors. An additional benefit for Petersime is our platform’s capability to train new operators.
