Line Bottleneck Detection

Tracking down bottlenecks

Sustainable elimination of production bottlenecks

Comprehensive analyses make it possible to prevent bottlenecks in the long term

Analyze problems transparently: With large and therefore unmanageable lines, it is often difficult to find the exact origin of a production bottleneck or of deviating key figures. Line Bottleneck Detection provides the necessary transparency - so that line managers can look closely at their key figures across shifts and thus identify approaches for sustainable optimization.

Line Bottleneck Detection

Efficient elimination of production bottlenecks

Effectively bypass production stops

Finding production bottlenecks, resolving them promptly and in a targeted manner - so that production continues

Easily detect isolated deviations: If production processes stall, quick action is required. Line Bottleneck Detection identifies bottlenecks and reveals deviations from specified production processes. In this way, countermeasures can be taken promptly on the line and, above all, in a targeted manner - and production losses can be prevented immediately.

Line KPI

Key figures at any time

More transparency for optimal OEE

Ensure quality, adhere to delivery times, improve processes – Line KPI ensures problem-free production

Important parameters at a glance: The number of items, rejects, maintenance work - efficient manufacturing processes are based on various parameters that require problem-free monitoring. This is the only way to effectively prevent delays in production and delivery. Line KPI helps to keep an eye on the process data for all the assembly systems, to quickly identify faulty processes and to counteract the loss of effectiveness in a targeted manner – at both the system as well as the line level.

Global production overview

Variability in production is not an obstacle

Counteract delivery bottlenecks across plants

If things get tight in our own plant, sister plants step in

A skillful approach to variability: Production is more variable and unpredictable than ever before. For example, if supplier parts do not arrive on time, production becomes hectic. With the Global Production Overview, there is always transparency about production capacities in sister plants. This enables short-term bottlenecks to be eliminated and supply contracts to be adhered to.

Ticket Management

The ticket is for which station?

Easily create, view and close tickets on the line

The visual link between the line and the fault makes work much easier

New options in maintenance: With the combination of Ticket Management and Line Bottleneck Detection, both the details as well as the ticket for each error message and for each station are visually located on the Live Heatmap. This not only makes it easier to issue tickets on the line. Errors can also be found and corrected more quickly by the right person.

Tracking down spindle faults

Identify faulty deviations

Defective spindles stress ball bearings – and require quick action

Rapid intervention in the event of vibrations: Ball bearings are exposed to great forces. Additional disturbances, such as vibrations due to faulty spindles, must be avoided. The Nexeed Industrial Application System measures vibrations and deviations. Your benefits: shorter downtimes through timely intervention - and substantial savings in maintenance work.

Consistent quality in the welding process

Welding without unplanned downtime

All spot-welding data at a glance, centralized and user-friendly

Less scrap thanks to data transparency: Without a centralized data collection, welding processes are prone to high scrap rates and unplanned downtimes. The Nexeed Industrial Application System meets these challenges with maximum data transparency: all error messages and quality indicators can be displayed and evaluated centrally at a glance – both live and based on historical data. The result: fewer errors, shorter downtimes, and higher product quality.

Detect leak test errors early – and react in time

Central monitoring of machine conditions: The error rate in leak tests is decisive for detecting errors early. If it exceeds a critical value, fast action is required. The Nexeed Industrial Application System makes it possible: thanks to central monitoring, the persons responsible can keep track of several machines’ test results and react promptly. This increases transparency, reduces reject rates, and optimizes product quality.

Optimal planning

Neither over nor under capacities

The best possible planning of personnel and material requirements – this is not a contradiction!

Production and personnel in harmony: Production and personnel – both key indicators are subject to permanent fluctuations: Whether the production volume or the availability of personnel fluctuates is almost secondary. It is important that the current events are coordinated. Transport Management takes care of that: All actual transport requirements are automatically distributed to the available capacities and efficient tours are created.

Efficient planning of milk runs

Thanks to Transport Management, static milk runs are a thing of the past.

Flexible milk run trains: Milk runs often have low utilization rates. Statically defined routes and unnecessary stops with very little material cost time and money. With Transport Management, both the number and the frequency of milk run trains can be reduced: The tour planning ensures optimum utilization by planning upcoming and new transport requirements in real time. In this way, orders can be planned and processed both flexibly and efficiently as required.

Transport material easily by AGV

With Transport Management, AGVs become really intelligent – and this saves time and money.

AGVs become intelligent: AGVs do not automatically know where the material to be transported is available for collection and where exactly it has to go. Transport Management answers these questions. This application identifies the relevant supermarket and the exact source for collection. At the same time, a reservation is placed in the destination supermarket. Thanks to the status feedback from the AGVs, the in and out booking at the supermarket takes place automatically.
