Under the theme „Integrated Industry – Connect and Collaborate“, the Hannover Messe is focusing this year on collaboration in digital supply chains and innovative solutions for better collaboration. At Microsoft's booth ( Halle 7 | Booth C40), visitors will learn how supply chains can be optimized with the help of IoT technologies using the example of a maritime project manufacturer. Sensors and mobile data acquisition ensure fast information, avoid errors and reduce a high coordination effort.
This year's COSMO CONSULT Group scenario is part of an Industry 4.0 solution: it shows how a ship owner uses intelligent rudders from Becker Marine Systems GmbH. Sensors mounted on the rudders monitor their behavior during operation and make status information available in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
The company from Hamburg, which provides equipment for ships, tracks the information as part of predictive maintenance. In the scenario, abnormal readings indicate that there has been excessive wear on one rudder. Becker Marine Systems informs the shipowner that in the foreseeable future there may be a malfunction and recommends replacing the part. One advantage of predictive maintenance is that it makes long term planning possible. Since potential operational risks are discovered early on, service appointments can be scheduled for a time that is best for the operations. In this case, the shipowner replaces the rudder when it is time for the routine TÜV inspection of the cargo ship.
Take on the role of a project planner who coordinates the replacement of a steering gear in the Far East from his desk. Accompany the assembly order digitally - from the event message within the scope of predictive maintenance, through execution using mobile 3D CAD models to the final safety check via tablet. Experience our Industry 4.0 scenario for project manufacturers in a demo and register in advance for a personalized demo.
