Shannon®, the operational shopfloor assistance, provides situational problem-solving suggestions for operators of an automated production line. The tool thus forms a continuously operating optimization control loop based on high-frequency PLC data. Shannon® provides situational expert knowledge about problems and their solutions. It is easily accessible through the mobile app at any time for the entire staff on the shopfloor. It significantly reduces downtime (mean-time-to-repair) and the spread of productivity between different shifts.
Provide precise localization of error causes
Showing step-by-step instructions to solve the specific error
Classifying unknown events by anomaly detection
Detection and prioritization on the basis of dynamic bottlenecks
Define your own events without programming
Directly inform maintenance staff about an urgent problem
Automatically generate downtime and product batch reports
„After a short training phase of Shannon®, the generation of
situational solution suggestions based on high-frequency PLC
data was applied on one of our fully automated productions
lines. From that moment on, the tool has been continuously
refined live with feedback and new solution knowledge from
experienced employees. The real-time transparency on error
behavior, associated scrap per cause and situational problemsolving
proposals during operations helps us a lot to limit
losses to a minimum around the clock!”
