Our Reference Cases

Berlin Test Field

Customer: Siemens Power Generation

 

Challenge:

Very large amounts of test data are currently being collected during the development of prototypes of a gas turbine and the data can only be processed after the end of such a test campaign. Due to different data formats and data contents, some time-consuming manual steps are necessary to process the data. This leads to a late feedback of the test results to engineering departments, which process these data further. Deviations from the expected test results as well as actual test results and associated assumptions / hypotheses of the evaluating engineers are recognized too late. The feedback loop to tests that need to be repeated is therefore much too long.

 

Solution:

The aim is to make the test campaign more efficient by facilitating the visualization of the test data and to make the test engineers' work easier. In order to achieve this a central infrastructure should be established for storing and analyzing the data. We implemented scalable cloud-based data converters for various data formats. The requirements of the different user roles were elaborated with Design Thinking / Ideation methodologies.

AdvFlow

Challenge:

The optimization of material flow and resource usage during the discrete parts manufacturing can help to reduce cost and increase the manufacturing outputs. Additionally, various data inputs from the manufacturing management and enclosed ERP systems are needed to identify the optimization potential.

 

Solution:

evosoft identified together with the manufacturing owner the optimization potential and created a software as a service solution. The solution which is based on AWS cloud, is used to continuously monitor and optimize the manufacturing process. The optimization via defined KPIs like throughput, output or buffer size and more, helps to identify also hardware bottlenecks. Therefore the data of the control and manufacturing management system is used. The big advantage of the solution is the continuous monitoring and optimization against a onetime optimization.
