Industry 4.0

Suite EVO 4.0

A suite of interconnected software applications that - through the use of mobile, all-in-one and desktop devices, in addition to the interaction with Industry 4.0-compliant machines - make production environment consultation, management and control tools available to all parties involved in the production cycle (production planning manager, factory operators, quality control managers, etc.).

What it is

It has been designed to easily adapt to various sectors and all types of companies (industrial, artisan, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, chemical, processing, etc.), whether they are equipped with ERP and the production management module or manually manage the work orders.

The main objectives of EVO 4.0 are to send updated information in real time, reduce the likelihood of human error, collect field information (namely on the interconnected machines) and enhance production times and progress, all in the simplest way possible without significantly affecting the company’s established processes.

This type of approach has been well-received by structured and organised companies, in addition to those who work as subcontractors or self-employed artisans, yet possess state-of-the-art machinery in the hopes of increasing their production quality and efficiency.

The system allows

  • Orders, articles, batches, UDCs and so forth, to be traced.
  • Machines to be quickly integrated with the most popular standard protocols and the option of implementing proprietary protocols [see the protocol section on page 8].
  • Data to be exchanged from machines to PC and vice versa: from PC/Tablet to machines
  • Quick identification of the status of machines in production, in tooling, in alarm, in production stop or in maintenance
  • Declaration by the operator of the good parts and of the rejected parts of the work phase / order produced
  • Ability to print labels in production when needed and in the correct location (LabelSystem license required)
  • Local backup on SD card (on miniPC provided by Devtek) or remote
  • Customisation (costing on final balance) according to the needs of the individual customer

Functioning

BACKOFFICE
It allows for system configuration, the management of production orders and all their relevant entities (articles, cycles/phases, bills of materials, etc.), the status monitoring of connected machines and the production progress for individual work centres (whether interconnected or not).

FRONTEND
The operational part of the software that can be used by any browser-equipped device in the department (PCs, all-in-ones, notebooks, tablets, etc.). It allows operators to join the work centres by attributing set-up times, maintenance and production payments, in addition to starting, pausing and closing the production order work phases, and also making use of all their accompanying documentation (technical drawings, photos, videos, tool lists, processing notes, etc.).

Front end

Configuration

The application has been designed for use by production operators, and therefore boasts a simple, intuitive interface.

Features

Depending on the implementation at the specific customer’s site, the following cases are created:

  • Provide information relating to active, currently being processed and paused production orders, in addition to all the accompanying documentation (technical drawings, set-up instructions, etc.)
  • Start, pause and close production order phases
  • Manage downtime and set-ups
  • Send data to the machines
  • Declare the production payments as on account or balance
  • Record the operators’ factory clock-in and clock-out times, the aggregation times to individual work centres, and user breaks
