Use Cases Factory Operations Visibility & Intelligence

Factory Operations Visibility & Intelligence

Visualizing factory operations data is a challenge for many manufacturers today. One of the IIoT initiatives some manufacturers are pursuing today is providing real-time visibility in factory operations and the health of machines. The goal is to improve manufacturing efficiency. The challenge is in combining and correlating diverse data sources that greatly vary in nature, origin, and life cycle.

Factory Operations Visibility and Intelligence (FOVI) is designed to collect sensor data generated on the factory floor, production-equipment logs, production plans and statistics, operator information, and to integrate all this and other related information in the cloud. In this way, it can be used to bring visibility to production facilities, analyze and predict outcomes, and support better decisions for improvements.

KHS develops and produces machines and equipment for filling and packaging in the drinks industry. Because drinks manufacturing, filling and packaging consist of a number of highly complex processes, the user-friendly and intuitive operation of equipment is increasingly gaining in significance. In order to design these processes as simple as possible for the user, KHS decided to introduce a uniform, transparent and standardized solution to the company. The HMI interface should meet the requirement for people with different qualifications and enable them to work on a standard platform.

Cisco provides many applications as a part of this solution; Hosted Collaboration Fulfillment-Mediation (HCM-F), Cisco Prime Collaboration Assurance, Cisco Unified Call Manage(CUCM), Cisco Unified Presence(CUP), Cisco Unity Connection(CUCxN), Cisco Unified Operation Manager (CUOM), and Cisco Prime License Manager. There are many communications technologies linking the different components: SOAP, REST, XML, SNMP, Cisco IOS, LDAP, VOIP, Telnet and SSH. They all need to be verified for various combinations of scenarios, features and scalability. That is a huge task which would need many different tools to be used and configured. Instead Cisco decided to use one tool that can provide all the test environments they need, MIMIC Web and SNMP Simulator.

The industrial control and factory automation market are expected to reach USD 269.5 billion by 2024 from USD 160.0 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 9.08%.
