As our clients are never in the exact same stage, Consat has the opportunity to be involved in many different development journeys. In the following examples, Consat Digital Platform NEXT has been used in two different ways to improve efficiency and quality in two various projects.
Consats broad experience from various industries could help support you in your innovation journey to help scale up your business models for digital services in a pragmatic approach. From the production floor to app interfaces, we set the baseline for your digital innovation.
– We bring a perfect match of engineering and digital skills to quickly set the baseline, offering industrialized digital solutions to set the rational path of your digital journey. Consat Digital Platform NEXT is already integrated with thousands of devices & sensors from different verticals for Industry 4.0, e-mobility asset tracking, e-health, Smart Homes and EV charging, to mention a few.
In the following examples, Consat as a digital partner guided two leading enterprises in their respective industry verticals, in their business digital evolution at the pace that suited them.
Case 1. Industry 4.0.
IoT for machines is an ongoing development where Consat Digital platform NEXT works to identify issues before they occur. Working in advance will help avoid any sudden impact an issue could have on production.
Being able to reduce unplanned downtime, increase asset lifespans, and optimize maintenance costs would increase the production flow within the industry, but today the maintenance of machines in production is transformed into a proactive rather than a reactive approach.
How we solved it
Consat Digital Platform NEXT presents data-driven innovation, fast prototyping, and fast production service development and deployment to support innovation and quickly scale up digital business. Together with the IoT platform we’re enabled to drive automation by using our vision solution CQV which provides continuous and consistent production monitoring – resulting in higher product quality. In “Industry 4.0” we’re connecting to various machines in the manufacturing industry to assist our customers in making smarter decisions.
The end-to-end solution includes Connectivity management, Edge computing, Application development and Management orchestrated over the Consat NEXT Digital platform. The application feature also includes:
- Real-time visibility into critical manufacturing equipment
- Real time Monitoring of business KPIs calculated and sourced automatically from multiple systems, such as PLC, MES, or from sensors
- Detailed view of production trends with drill down into events for root cause analysis
- Reason-codes effectively to identify performance losses
Using a data-driven approach on machines in production through Consat Digital solution presents an overview of production data and status such as:
Items produced, Alarms raised, Downtime incidents Downtime recorded, Uptime percentage, Current status, Frequency of Alarms, Items produced over time, Machine status and Alarms Sent Cumulative.
Having this information at hand help make smarter decisions, resulting in:
- Increased Throughput
- Increase quality
- Reduce unplanned downtime
Case 2. Wennstrom - Consat CMS
The Nordic maintenance and service partner Wennstrom is in the traditional market of liquid fuels – as well as the e-mobility segment. With a vision of being the natural choice when it comes to investments and maintenance of sustainable fuels, they want to improve the Nordic environment for future generations.
One of the biggest challenges in the transition to electric vehicles is the logistics of charging operations – Multi-Vendor Management of charging infrastructure is one of them.
How we solved it
Using the Consat Charging Management Solution (CMS) for Multi-Vendor EV charging infrastructure, Wennstrom is now able to manage electric vehicle charging stations across multiple locations from one single application. The software also provides real-time monitoring and optimization capabilities for charging operations, such as the following:
- Precise management of energy sources and loads
- Integrated functions for charging service operations
- System interconnectivity and digital services
Consat Digital solution orchestrated on Consat Next Digital platform enables Wennstrom’s digital transformation journey by working as a cloud-based independent system for the service and maintenance of charging infrastructure. With features such as: Fault detection, Remote management of chargers, charging management, Load management, Role-based access control, remote diagnostic, support and management. The implementation resulted in:
- Increased efficiency
- Service Uptime
- Supports all MQTT and OCPP 1.6 complaint chargers
- Integrated Functions for Charging Service Operations
“If we can make complex information
easier to understand and present
it to users in a simpler way, they’ll
make smarter decisions”
