Why NouxCloud in these cases?

With Nouxnode’s ready-made low-code-tools automation engineer can build such solutions of any process one knows well within weeks without any external IT help. This gives opportunity to monetize the know-how one has when building such machine in the first place with very low investment.

Machine or line is divided to different visualized sections (dashboard). Key performance indicators of each section are monitored and analyzed (dataflow). The system gives information with alarms and tickets through email and sms to the operator such as when to fill materials and operate maintenance or to the manager, e.g. analysis over different operators.

Equipment is constantly following key indicators of the maintenance plan and instructions (dataflow). System is generating tasks for the operator or to the OEM’s service department or partner. If the OEM has know-how and capacity this case can be later enhanced using predictive algorithms. Additionally the OEM can build visualizations to help service people troubleshoot (dashboards). This saves significant amount of time compared to the traditional way of logging into the machine remotely.
Production details are visualized by deliverables (dashboard) and key performance indicators are monitored and analyzed (dataflow) using them. System generates reports of each patch online and emails pdfs to end customer with information on e.g. recipes of the material, temperature, humidity, pressure proving that the material fulfills the requirements set by the customer.

Most machines have parts that needs to be changed repeatedly and selling them can be a significant part of the OEM’s revenue. The OEM can monitor key indicators of the machine part lifetime online (dataflow). This can generate tickets to sales and aftersales department through email or directly to e.g. an online store using integration tokens.

In many cases equipment is either using material delivered by the OEM or the quality of the end product is very dependent of the used material. Consumables can be significant part of the OEM’s revenue. The OEM may also face complaints with the root cause being the consumable rather than the machine. The OEM can monitor usage of the consumable materials and analyze the quality of the production with different consumables through dataflow. Usage of the material can generate tickets to sales and aftersales department through email or directly to e.g. an online store using integration tokens. Analytics can be used in complaint cases or be part of reporting service to the end customer.

An application by which the manager of operators can make, receive and distribute work-orders and recipes between different machines and cells or even factories with custom schema and objects. This can be done with the easy visual dashboard tool either on the cloud or on-premises.

An application by which the OEM handles software like PLC code, Docker containers etc., version or file handling and HostAPP distribution in a globally installed base.

The OEM can provide saving into a harmonized, logically named and well-designed EdgeAPP time-series-database for the end customer and also for their own R&D use. The dataflow can be analyzed and the data can be used when building other applications or analyzing the production using integration tokens.
