IoT Web App for Production Line Planning and Controlling

Strengthening the development and innovation capacity of the Internet of the Future in factories

About the Client

DiFiCIL targets to develop cyber-physical social systems for factories based on IoT technologies and is a project co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund through the Competitiveness Operational Programme 2014-2020.

One main objective of the DiFiCIL project is the development of a technological infrastructure for the research in the field of cyber-physical social systems with prototypes and experimental systems within ‘Lucian Blaga’ University of Sibiu. 

The Need

The project team was looking for a software solution to support the planning and control of a production line.

The hardware part of the project was implemented, having multiple modules and robots electronically connected. Before our software solution, there was no bridge between the user and the production line so the team needed one user for each separate module to interact with. Moreover, to place a command required tech savvy operators, as coding skills were a must. This translated into increased costs and low productivity.

Ropardo’s team was asked to develop “the brain” of the project, a web application to enable the team to automate the manufacturing processes whenever possible, to increase productivity and reduce costs. Finally, the team required the web app to be friendly and easy to use by any member of the team.

The Solution

We developed an IoT web application that allows the human operator to securely manage the entire production line from a single interface in real time. A fundamental issue with low output, inventory control, and resource use is addressed through production planning and control. Now, a single operator can execute tasks that used to require five team members. More quickly and easier than ever!

Here’s how it goes using the web application to plan, control and monitor the manufacturing process on the production line: the operator sets up the requests for the entire day at the start of each shift, and the system handles the rest. When many users from various departments log in, each one updates the configuration status according to the requirements. The operator simply configures the necessary order if priority is required. Isn’t that easy?

The web application offers:

It’s all about the interaction between multiple users and the application while making everything a user may need easily accessible. Our team delivered a friendly user interface, with no learning curve to struggle with.

It provides a unified overview of the most important information needed by operators to help them make better decisions and to know what is happening in the production line.

Real-time notifications are sent/received when there is an unpredicted event, an error, or any other type of production line abnormality.

Detailed reports allow operators to analyze captured data, draw conclusions, and make adjustments to lower TCO (cost of ownership) and time.

Key Benefits

Production is a critical component of any business and ensuring that it runs smoothly and efficiently is essential for success.

The following are some of the key benefits of using our web application within the production line:

It helps the operators be more proactive with their response and deal with changes and issues more efficiently. Having the capability to view real-time data and order status improves productivity, and quality related to both machine and process performance, reduces errors, eliminates manual and redundant data entry processes.

They ensure new hires adapt more quickly and efficiently by minimizing the disruption to daily operations and providing a seamless experience for both new and current employees.

Automated workflows help reduce errors and improve accuracy by eliminating.

The reports delivered by the application allow managers to analyze data and make informed decisions that will help improve operations, drive efficiency and reduce costs quickly and easily. Enhanced visibility into all operations enables better decision-making within a single platform.
