The benefits summarized in 6 Pillars of Value

To illustrate and exemplify the potential value of the benefits of Industry 4.0, we have summarized them in a framework. Inspired by a “lean manufacturing” perspective with a systematic approach for elimination of waste, we created “the six pillars of value”.

  • Increased tool uptime

    INCREASED UPTIME BY 78%
    Increase tool up-time from 98% to 99,5%, by combining a traditional approach for preventive maintenance, with a more data driven approach for predictive maintenance. The maintenance tasks are determined by the condition of the equipment – rather than the average or expected life statistics. Thanks to the dramatically improved data analytics capability, and the sophisticated maintenance models, the repair can be scheduled at a time that minimizes the impact on production.

     

  • Reduction in defects

    REDUCTION IN DEFECTS BY 15%
    By integrating applications for part verification and documentation, operator guidance and pick-to-light solutions, you can achieve a reduction in defects and rework by 15%. The operator guidance application visualizes all process steps and data, to direct the operator through the assembly process. And with the help of a pick-to-light system, the selection of the correct parts – in the right quantities – is ensured for versatile production processes.

     

  • New Product Introduction

    COSTS FOR INTRODUCTION OF NEW PRODUCTS DOWN 57%
    Introducing new products often requires adding or moving production equipment around. However, the use of Vitrual Stations brings the cost for new product introduction down by impressive 57%. This by decentralizing and virtualizing control logic, processes and operations. New products can now be added or moved without re-allocating or commissioning of new hardware. A simple software configuration change is all it takes.

     

  • Improved Productivity

    IMPROVED PRODUCTIVTY BY 73%
    First time through, increased from 92,5% to 98% in one year with a structured data analysis process. This improved productivity is achieved through fewer reworkings, higher end-product quality and maximum uptime on the assembly line. Just a few of the many benefits offered by smart process monitoring and analysis software like Atlas Copco ToolsNet. Enhancing the capability to monitor, document, analyze, and improve the assembly process. Problems are identified and rectified by systematical and regular check of the most frequent “not OK” applications – analysing the trace information, speed and windows.

     

  • Human factors

    THE HUMAN FACTOR – 30% REDUCTION IN TRAINING
    Smart integrated software solutions offer enhanced operator guidance, resulting in fast recognition of rework process, traceability in assembly and manual operations, error proofing, data analysis and plant monitoring. So when introducing a new model or changing the assembly process – you have a reduced amount of operator training required.

     

  • Reduction in Energy use

    80% REDUCTION IN ENERGY USE
    Multiple wireless tool running on one virtual assembly process controller leads to a significant reduction in energy use. Recent studies indicate that up to 80% of energy in a typical industrial environment, is consumed when the equipment and tools are in stand-by mode. For factories powered by wind and solar reducing energy consumption is more than a cost reduction, it’s a necessity to meet environmental policies.
