The trade journal IT&Production — The Industry 4.0 Magazine for Successful Production is the first trade medium in the German-speaking world to focus exclusively on IT solutions in the production environment. The range of topics covers production controlling, quality management and automation integration as well as the use of IT systems in intralogistics, supply chain management, maintenance and repair, service or customer relationship management.
The focus of the applications presented is primarily on practicable solutions aimed at medium-sized and small companies with a high proportion of manual production. The magazine thus provides concrete tips on all areas of digital manufacturing within the framework of Industry 4.0 and lean production. In addition, the magazine regularly presents industry and topic focuses. In the current issue, June 2020, one of these focal points is the topic of “large industrial displays”.
Our Andon and plant management solutions are therefore made for a technical article. In the linked technical article, we explain how Andon boards, alarming solutions and other Andon solutions can be used to display production processes transparently and clearly. But also reactions to disturbances of the production and alarming on unforeseen incidents are treated. Concrete practical tips are given on how to set up andon solutions that can be used in lean production projects.
We are happy about this contribution based on our whitepaper with the topic Andon systems and look forward to sharing our knowledge with you!
