CASE STUDY: IoT Brings Benefits to the Thai Summit Pressroom
Automotive Tier One supplier Thai Summit integrates more than 50 press and assembly work centers to gather data on machine downtime and optimize maintenance procedures. Among the numerous benefits: enhanced shop-floor visibility, increased OEE and improved employee performance.
In March 2019, the firm set baselines for its work centers, and in April it launched its IOT platform. In just six months, it increased cycle output to the tune of about $5 million.
With the first phase and core infrastructure in place, it’s excited to really start exploiting the full power of IOT for years to come. Lineside labeling, validation, traceability, quality, fault tracking, piece serialization, custom visualizations are either in the works, or on the radar as we’ll continually roll out new functionality and continuous improvement.
