Planning tool for automotive production 4.0

Objective & context

The flexible planning tool MAPP (short for Multiple Assembly Planning and Process System), developed with the support of AKKA, enables a paradigm shift in vehicle production. Thanks to MAPP, development data and assembly processes are linked in a single system for the first time. The customer is more flexible in the utilization of his plants, simplifies the handling for responsible employees and reduces the manual planning work. Thanks to MAPP, production planners can concentrate on the essentials, plan more easily and react faster to changes in production.

Realizations

  • Uniform process planning for all the customer’s plants
  • Linking the development data to the assembly processes
  • Simplified handling and shortening of planning activities
  • Support of distributed planning processes in an integrated workflow
  • Assistance in planning for optimized manufacturing sequence

Added value & customer benefits

  • Comprehensive project responsibility, from the IT concept to implementation and security, to data migration and roll-out
  • Stabilization of the system and establishment of an automated, permanent securing of software quality in daily operations
  • Efficient use of development technologies (e.g. Java FX, JPA 2.1) as well as selected tools (e.g. Glassfish v3, Oracle 12, Jasper Reports)
