Process optimisation made easy: piaOptimum is an application that identifies bottlenecks in complex, interlinked assembly plants, and allows for the rapid and sustainable optimisation of production efficiency thanks to the greatest possible level of data transparency. The performance of both individual units and sections of the production line, or the entire plant, can be assessed.

piaOptimum can be flexibly connected to all types of automation systems – when new plants are set up or as a retrofit version for existing production lines. The application stands out thanks to the detail of its data analysis. Along with cycle analyses for individual units, it can also record and evaluate partial cycles for each individual movement or sub-movement. All reports and errors are also recorded. That means process results can be evaluated in detail and sequences can be compared. With just a few clicks, piaOptimum shows which unit and partial movement has changed and affected overall output. The tool also offers numerous standard analyses.

Simple configuration without interfering with the PLC

The second decisive advantage, compared to competing products, is the simple configuration of all required data points via the software’s web-based user interface. That does not require any changes to the PLC programming. Instead piaOptimum allows completely flexible data connection using the OPC-UA protocol. Access is also flexible: Data can be evaluated by service technicians on site or accessed remotely. The raw data is also compressed so that it can be stored for long periods, while remaining comprehensible.

The software offers extensive functionality and allows specific data and analyses to be made available to different target groups – for everything from production management and maintenance to system optimisation. A plant knowledge database is available for use in troubleshooting and process optimisation, which allows operating instructions for individual units to be saved along with internal notes.

piaOptimum can be used with individual units, sections, the whole system, or an entire production location. For example, it could initially be used with problematic units for monitoring and optimisation. To achieve full transparency an identification of all OEE losses – meaning everything that reduces the overall effectiveness of the system – piaOptimum can be used with the entire assembly system. PIA Automation thereby offers comprehensive service, from setting up the assembly line and the analysis software package to optimisation services (data-driven services) form the PIA analysis team.

PIA Automation Holding is an international corporate group that offers technically complex, commercially mature automation solutions. Its range of services covers everything from manual assembly workstations to fully-automated production systems with integrated testing technology and data recording. PIA has mastered the interplay of mechanics, electronics, programming, measurement technology, production systems, documentation, image processing and robotics, along with research and development. It has responded to the trends toward digitalisation and networking with its own Industry 4.0 solution. It has more than 1,400 employees at nine locations in Germany, Austria, Croatia, the USA, Canada and China. Its business areas include mobility – particularly powertrain, e-mobility, safety and components – industrial and consumer products, green energy and healthcare.
