Smartwatch: maintenance in the digital factory

Smartwatch: maintenance in the digital factory

With the Internet of Things, maintenance personnel is always connected, wherever they are inside the plant: the smartwatch enables request dispatching and prompt monitoring of the interventions.

Approach & Solution

Approach

In order to manage the maintenance team's operations more efficiently, our client - a European multinational company, leader in the production of industrial vehicles - required a solution in an Industry 4.0 perspective which would integrate the functionalities of our Engineering SMM product for maintenance management, using the Smartwatch solution.

Solution

Our DiVE HMI - Smartwatch solution is an application based on Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch devices; it consists of a graphical data presentation interface, a message dispatcher and a customized part based on business needs and integration with business management systems.
With our Engineering technicians, we applied digital transformation technologies to integrate the smartwatch with the SMM product and develop new functionalities.
The wearable device is used to send notifications, in both broadcast and specific mode, on the intervention request to all operators responsible for maintenance, no matter where they are in the plant.
With the smartwatch they can manage prompt handling of the request and indicate the operator performing the operation.
Once completed, the operator notifies closure of the request and can send the significant metrics for the activity via the smartwatch.

Results

Thanks to our DiVE HMI - Smartwatch solution, we brought the advantages of the digital factory to our customer company for maintenance activities:
- The staff is always connected and intervenes according to proximity to the area of the request.
- The procedures for taking charge are automated and simplified.
- Activities are tracked in a timely manner.
- Intervention times are drastically reduced.
