At the AEE, DE software & control GmbH presents the "Desc" factory assistance system, which navigates employees individually and efficiently through the production processes. The system provides production employees at their workplace with important information and guides them step by step through complex work processes. Information is prepared with "Desc" in such a way that it corresponds to the current work step and knowledge level of the employees. In this way, the error rate decreases while the quality of the work increases.
With Desc, the Bavarian manufacturer provides an IT platform to communicate with each other in real time at shop floor level and to communicate fault messages, material requirements or suggestions for improvement. All information can be easily transported via the tool and documented in a process-reliable manner. The worker assistance is structured in such a way that a complete system can be orchestrated with existing modules. In addition, the source code can be individualized. The result is a modular system that covers individual processes. "Desc" is platform-independent and can be used as a complete MES, but can also be seamlessly integrated into existing IT systems, from ERP to MES to PLC.
New in the "Desc" factory assistance system: the seamless integration of a laser system with feedback function and a head-up display with augmented reality functionality for assembly tables. The laser system integrated in Desc can not only visualize geometric shapes and texts directly on the workpiece, but can also reconfirm the visualized points of contact. The assembly steps carried out are also monitored, as is the correct removal of materials from the displayed supply compartments. Augmented Reality has arrived in practice!
