Automation of tracking and tracing in the automotive industry

Tracking and tracing is one of the most important challenges in the manufacture of automotive parts. While increasing automation with cycle times of less than one second, the requirements for data acquisition and processing are also changing. Full traceability as the volume of data grows requires production related data to be transmitted and evaluated in real time. With the kontron susietec® toolset, we offer an innovative line controller concept that meets the high product variance and complex requirements for line control with batch size 1.

As part of the production line, the IT system provides all necessary functions at line level with maximum process proximity. On the way to paperless manufacturing, additional function modules with industrial-grade control panels enable digital worker assistance systems to be implemented quickly. That is how the kontron susietec® toolset combines decades of experience in the automotive industry with a concept that covers both software and hardware.

Universal connectivity as the basis for the mobility evolution

Universal connectivity forms the basis for realizing the smart factory: This concept requires a wide variety of interfaces between old and new systems, production lines, as well as IT and OT. Based on these requirements, the kontron susietec® toolset uses IoT applications to implement connectivity simply and reliably. In combination with our many years of experience and expertise, we guarantee a holistic approach that supports all necessary implementations.

The extended application of the kontron susietec® toolset also covers all industrial processes from commissioning to roll-out, ongoing production and monitoring. We provide support and advice at every phase of application - with the aim of permanently solving the overall connectivity problem.


Applying big data and AI in the automotive industry

Big data and AI in the automotive industry are based on high volumes of data and how they are processed. Together with our experts, we develop customer-specific solutions to match the concepts of Industry 4.0/IoT to automotive production sites. In doing so, we not only place value on the theoretical usability of the individual concepts, but also support you in implementing them smoothly in practice. That is how we enable smooth data exchange across the entire supply chain as well as end-to-end analyses and correlations beyond supplier boundaries. Machine learning also enables us to optimize production processes and continuously improve the quality of your products.
