With its “Smart System Optimization“, Fraunhofer IPA has developed a tool that identifies errors in interlinked manufacturing systems and shows their root causes. In order to do this, high-performance machine control connectors and external sensors such as smart cameras record relevant process characteristics. Subsequently, an analytical tool interprets the data in real time. This means that fully automated production systems with short cycle times can be optimized while also enabling automated machine benchmarking of comparable machines. The analytical tool will be presented at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago from September 10 to 15, 2018.
