|PROJECT||»Data Log Dashboard«|
|PROJECT PERIOD||September 2018 through March 2019|
Step by Step to an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with dotSource
Krones AG entrusted dotSource with the development of a »Data Log Dashboard«, which presents collected production data from a machine, illustrated graphically, in a web interface centrally. Previously, this data was manually edited to make it available for evaluating with various tools.
Krones service employees and customers have used various systems to map one and the same machine data record. The valuable data, which is important both for the maintenance and for the further development of the machines, were previously only available with considerable delay and not uniformly readable.
- Agile project approach according to the MVP approach
- Development of data importation via B2B online shop
- Provision and backup of data in a database
- Plotting of data in B2B shop
- Development of rights and role management
- Playout of processed data via shop
By providing processed data, both Krones service personnel and customers have quick access to machine runtime and error data. Instead of time-consuming manual evaluation, data is uploaded through the B2B online shop and are then immediately available in graphic form. Now they can react much faster to irregularities and increase the effectiveness of entire production lines.
In addition, Krones has the opportunity to collect important data for the development of new machines and production lines.
