The Power of Analytics can be harvested easily

As already mentioned in my post “Is Digital Twin and its Value fully understood? ” I want to share some experiences around Analytics.Analytics is a widely used term and sometimes misunderstood.

I experience many companies asking for predictive data usage, for example on machine maintenance/learning. However, once I have visited their facilities, I need to conclude that not even the first level of data usage has been established yet. To explain the different levels, I personally like the simple, but precise representation by Gartner. It represents the different maturity levels well to understand the usage of data.

This video in the post demonstrates how you can create and simulate machining operations with a robot as opposed to a milling machine. The machining operations were created in the DELMIA Multi-Axis Machining app. For a robot with a robot controller, you can use an OOTB DELMIA robot translator to download a robot program.

Production Order Creation – Derived from the MBOM or the Process Plan?

A production order has a routing, also known as a process plan. This is the collection of work (operations, steps, required tools, required labor skills, required tests and data collects, work instructions, etc.) that needs to be performed in order to manufacture the product.
