The modification of a whole production line for the new series of models. The completing line is controlled by one PLC Siemens WinAC RTX. For control and display results are used three operator panels TP and WinCC Flexible Runtime PC applications.
Modifications included the removal of several stations from the line (remove technological and SW bonds).Label printing and data collection on the completion and results of final testing is done via a PC application.
SW has been extended to double the number of models. Implementation of new operations (other assembly processes, controls, sequences of final testing, modification of label printing, data collection, etc.)
and controls (2x camera, the presence of parts, etc.) involve software modifications in all stations including the complete change of the whole data structure of an RFID system for transmitting data between stations.
Demands of making adjustments was increased by time-space outage (3 weeks), extensiveness of SW, using complicated software standard and SW commentaries in French.
