Abstract

A synchronized production system has been built that corresponds to a model virtualized on PLC memory with production processes for a modular design product. Retention of information as well as material could be eliminated by exchanging real-time information on production model information and production information, applying cycle time matching for processes, automatic setup change for processes, and inlining. We would like to introduce a case which has materialized higher production efficiency through a synchronized production system.
