Hans Berg GmbH & Co. KG

Reconfiguration measures after a tool change

Challenge: Adjustment measures are necessary when a tool or material has changed, but its duration and success depend on the experience of the employee executing it.

Goal: Reducing the time required to reconfigure the tools, the amount of produced defective components, and the need for the experience required to perform the adjustment tasks.

Sidenor Group

Constant reconfiguration of supply plans

Challenge: Disruptions require reallocating the production, which takes place manually. Decisions taken at network level aren’t connected to the reconfiguration needed at the factory level.

Goal: Reducing the time required for reconfiguration of the production plans for the production network by supporting the user throughout the reconfiguration planning.


Production planning optimisation

Challenge: The process steps within the production of one part are performed in several working centres. They need to be fixed according to the daily production needs.

Goal: Increasing the efficiency and competitiveness as well as the predictability of production by developing a cross-site production planner, which can be constantly reconfigured.

voestalpine High Performance Metals Digital Solutions GmbH

Reconfiguration of manufacturing processes during production

Challenge: The products vary in size and shape and can only be machined on machinery providing the necessary capabilities, which also vary on other factors such as tools.

Goal: Highly flexible production planning and scheduling, also depending on the current machine state and manufacturing utilities with the opportunity to reconfigure the processes during production.
