Employment of WEB based CNCnetPDM technology with the production of motor vehicle glazing SAINT GOBAIN SEKURIT is world-wide partner of the car industry; at geographical locations in at present 22 countries automobile glazing in the value of more than 1.5 billion EUR are manufactured and distributed. At three German production locations the machine binding and control for most different glass processing aggregates (cutting, drilling, grinding) was placed on a new technological basis.
One individual application that was based on DEC VAX-/VMS computers was replaced by a CNCnetPDM installation, which made equally problem free the assumption of the aged data pool to a modern data base and the integration of the machines into the existing network architecture.
The access to program pools as well as the actualisation of the data base take place now via Web browser. A programme loading procedure runs in the parallel/background mode and is independent of the respective operating condition of an aggregate.
With the extensive interface know-how of the inventcom specialists all necessary adjustments of the protocols of the facility controls could be implemented in shortest time.
The open arrangement of the CNCnetPDM system made an as far as possible independent start-up possible by the customer, without time consuming external support would have become necessary.
