The iProd management revolution, the MOP
iProd MOP (Manufacturing Optimisation Platform) collects, manages and optimizes the four key operational areas that determine the efficiency of a manufacturing company:
iProd MOP, using Cloud-based technology, easily expandable at any time, allows you to proceed with the progressive digitization of your company, having the opportunity to self-finance its increasingly widespread adoption with the increased revenue that it is able to generate.
With iProd MOP the entrepreneur can therefore have a very efficient management system of their company, able to repay the investment in a few months.
In this section there is now the new Planning function: a real Gantt of your company, through which it is possible to interact with the machinery and with all the assigned jobs and see them planned in the agenda for the coming weeks and months.
Monitoring of the current situation for each machine, with the currently running phases
In the section that describes the execution of the various job orders, it is now possible to view, export and print a detailed report with information on the progress of the production activities, complete with details related to the different work orders developed in the individual phases and the indicators of efficiency of the various machines involved in the individual processes.
In the comments it is possible to quickly refer to the user, a product, a customer by calling them up by placing the @ symbol. The searched object will be suggested automatically. Similarly, using the $ symbol, orders or work orders can be tagged.
The exclusive environment for sharing and socializing information in a Social Collaboration key never created before in the production field! The operators and administrators of your company can publish and access comments, multimedia attachments (photos, videos, technical files and documents) concerning the orders, articles, phases, work orders, production resources, parts program, etc.
It is the place, or the square, in the style of the "Facebook" social network, where all members of your company can now collaboratively participate in making the work environment even more efficient and productive.
- Machinerylist and status of all machinery and operating units of the company, to which the operator who, at the moment, is managing the machinery is also associated.
- Operators: it is now possible to see the latest activity of all users.
- Notifications: list of notifications for all events that iProd has handled.
IoT Tablet 4.0
The highly resistant and reliable 4.0 industrial IoT Tablet connects any machinery or assembly system to the iProd Cloud Professional.
Augmented Part Program
An exclusive standard feature of iProd IoT Tablet is the Augmented Part Program, which allows integrating visual, textual and vocal information related to the tooling and operating instructions of the interconnected machines, according to the processing cycles to be performed. This allows to make the value of the information, referred to the best experience of using the production asset in relation to the lots previously carried out, immediately available and shareable among all those in charge, so as to obtain higher efficiency in the design of new working cycles and new fixtures or their re-use for identical or similar lots.
Part Program Versioning
With the digital cloud management of Part Programs you can create endless revisions or Versioning of any program on board the machine or in the technical office, having the confidence that iProd Cloud will keep each version to prevent errors and unnecessary waste of time in restoring previously optimized conditions.
iProd natively connected
iProd IoT Tablet uses the Alleantia XPANGO driver technology and the Library of Things with 5000+ industrial devices to achieve the fast and scalable "Plug&Play" integration of industrial devices.
Alleantia allows you to connect in a few seconds the instrumental assets installed in the production departments to create a complete and interoperable digital twin with iProd IoT Tablet.
The information is collected by the CNC and PLC using the most popular communication protocols and is intended for the iProd IoT Tablet.
Thanks to Alleantia you can connect all machines that are less than 10 years old and that are equipped with the following numerical controls, simply by selecting the appropriate driver, just as you would do to connect a printer to a computer.
- FANUC "i" Series for lathes, machining centres and EDMs,
- HEIDENHAIN TNC530/TNC620 and TNC640 on which the communication license named "Option 18 - DNC" has been activated by the machine manufacturer or, subsequently, at the request of the customer,
- SIEMENS 828D/840D with active OPC-UA and WITHOUT OPC-UA. In the second case, the "OEM" option should be activated by the machine manufacturer or the customer and the "Alleantia microserver" should be "installed" on the CNC (to be purchased separately),
- MITSUBISHI, all CNCs manufactured during the last 10 years,
- SELCA, both for CNCs with serial interface (only part-program transfer) and with LAN port,
- HAAS, all machines equipped with LAN interface,
- Any CNC that supports MtCONNECT,
- Any CNC that supports OPC-UA.
- EUROMAP 63 protocol, equipped with a LAN port and without active connection with the same protocol or which are enabled for a multiple connection,
- EUROMAP 77 protocol,
- Any press that supports OPC-UA.
Personnel shifts planning
Advanced production reporting
Integration with ERP and CRM
Integration with WMS
Integration with PLM
Advanced condition based maintenance
Production planning with AI
AR/VR to support operations
Contextual Marketplace of spare parts, accessories and consumables
Predictive maintenance and quality with AiProd
By installing our partners' Apps, iProd IoT Tablet can be integrated with additional software to get supplementary features and benefits.
Through API (Application Programming Interface) it will be possible, for any management system already available in the company, to connect in a simple and open way to the iProd Cloud platform to exchange information on customers, orders, work orders and production progress, as well as alerts and notifications in real time. This is a feature that will make iProd MOP the perfect complement to any ERP, CRM, PLM, WMS or other software already in use in the company for management and accounting.
AiProd: the artificial intelligence application of Acoustic Insights
New and exclusive predictive features in manufacturing contexts
AiProd is the PATENTED solution, proprietary solution of IProd Srl, that uses the Acoustic Insights technology of IBM to realize the integration of IoT data with audio files acquired by machines, enabled by the Alleantia I4.0 "Plug&play" technology and IBM Watson in-cloud artificial intelligence system for the recognition of the acoustic pattern.
The solution, capable of predicting results on the quality of the machining, or of a product being tested, or even machine failures and defects, opens up interesting applications that may help manufacturers and end-users as well to prevent costly production waste or downtime for technical assistance.
AiProd is the result of the collaboration of three exclusive components. In particular:
Alleantia provides both the I4.0 “Plug&Play” interconnection technology of machine tools and production systems’ controllers, and a new functionality of multimedia peripheral drivers (microphones and even cameras), which strengthen the breadth of its already powerful library of over 5,000 drivers of industrial devices ready to use.
IBM, with Watson's Acoustic Insights function, provides an Artificial Intelligence system for training, refinement and recognition of the acoustic pattern. The technology compares reference audio files, or those known to be representative of the optimal functioning of the machines, with new audio files acquired in real time, giving it a score of equivalence between 0 and 100%, where the 0% score is equivalent to a completely new sound and 100% to an identical sound already known by the system.
IProd offers the innovative application AiProd “powered by IBM” that combines, in real time, multimedia files associated with IoT tags of production assets with Artificial Intelligence patterns. The latter create clusters capable of training a necessary and sufficient number of neural networks to ultimately perform increasingly accurate surveys and be associated with homogeneous processing scenarios.
