DiIT launches a dashboard app for the precision optimization of wire harness production

Krailling, February 4, 2019 – DiIT GmbH, a leading provider of integrated software systems for wire harness production, has expanded its solutions portfolio with a business intelligence app. The cloud-based 4Wire KPI Dashboard enables production companies to optimize their wire harness production quickly and efficiently.

The new 4Wire KPI Dashboard from DiIT provides companies with figures such as Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) through which they can determine utilization capacity along with the performance and quality level of their wire harness production. All the figures are clearly visualized so that users can capture them quickly and easily. The app can be installed on any device equipped with an up-to-date web browser.

The figures are available on three levels: company-wide, for individual factories and for individual machines. Using Drillthrough managers can break down the figures from the global view through to the factories and the individual machines. This enables them to ascertain specifically which machines at which locations have caused an undesirable development.

4Wire KPI Dashboard gives management an effective tool for the continuous improvement of wire harness production based on hard facts. Managers can quickly identify optimization potential and reduce surpluses through needs-based production. Production quality can be controlled with quick responses to any inadequate production performance.

The app is installed directly on DiIT’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) 4Wire CAO which can connect machines and systems from many different manufacturers. The MES collects all the machine and system data generated during production, calculates the figures from this and transfers them to the app for visualization.

A local solution is used for the display of real-time data. The app visualizes historical data on the basis of Microsoft Power BI in the Azure Cloud. The cloud solution is managed by DiIT and data is only exchanged in encrypted form.

“Reliable figures from ongoing production are an important control tool for management”, says Bernd Jost, managing director of DiIT GmbH. “However, to make fast and efficient decisions, these figures must be processed graphically so they can be captured intuitively. This is exactly what we have in our new 4Wire KPI Dashboard”.
