CPG IoT Production Visibility solutions help to monitor production health against your schedule

When an unplanned event such as a machine failure or a machine running out of performance occurs, the time it takes to remediate it can lead to thousands, and in some cases millions in loss of revenue. Predicting when these unplanned events occur isn't always possible and/or sometimes ineffective.

Having visibility of the entire production process condition against the schedule and machine target thresholds provides production leaders and operators with the ability to react immediately and stop/reduce unplanned events impacting production.

Production leaders and operators can't watch a visual dashboard all day, so DXC's solution raises alarms and assigns tasks to users when unplanned events occur. This means factory staff can focus on the process and leave the monitoring and alarm generation to an automated system.

  • How it works
  • DXC uses its consulting services to help customers determine how much value they can get from introducing IoT technologies into their factories. DXC then provides a discovery and design service that develops a tailored production visibility design and implementation plan for their specific factory and production lines.

    The technical solution ingests the production schedule using Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and loads it into AWS IoT SiteWise using AWS Step Functions and AWS Lambda. An AWS IoT SiteWise edge gateway is used to capture the required parameter data from industrial equipment in the factory and ingesting it to AWS IoT SiteWise in the AWS cloud. AWS IoT SiteWise is used to analyze the data against the schedule to determine if the equipment is operating within the expected parameters. DXC's unique and user-friendly interface displays the condition of the machinery with easy to understand icons for indicating the health of the production process.

    When the production process isn't operating within the planned production parameters, the solution also raises alerts that can be assigned to one or more operators to remediate. The solution requests a reason for the unplanned event so that management can assess where improvements are required to reduce the amount and types of unplanned events. This reporting function is provided using Amazon S3, AWS Glue, Amazon Athena, and Amazon QuickSight.
