Data control

Data control

CAD data can be accepted in a variety of formats from different CAD systems.

During the importation of data, drawings from inhomogeneous CAD sources can be corrected, if necessary, so as to ensure uniform and correct data coding.

Besides this automatic option to make individual corrections, ebos® Data Control also allows all component characteristics to be visualized and (if needed) changed in the 3-D Editor – right down to the smallest detail. The user doesn't need any detailed knowledge about the underlying data formats to do this; this is because user navigation via the built-in graphic 3-D Editor is intuitive.

PTS - Production Test Service

PTS - Production Test Service

The ebos® System integrates a fully equipped PTS client. The production data can thus be checked for correctness in the work preparation process – with respect to both the feasibility and the optimization of production.

PTS is a decisive technology when it comes to avoiding production delays due to deficient CAD data and if the necessary machine times should be realistically estimated in advance: PTS utilizes the machine software (the "PTS Server") in actual use to simulate in detail production processes during the work preparation phase.

Pal Bel - Pallet Assignment

Pal Bel - Pallet Assignment

Using ebos® pallet loading, the concrete components are placed on the production pallets (production lines, if production is on long lines).
Loading can be automatic or manual. Further, automatically loaded solutions can be subsequently altered manually in a very easy and intuitive fashion.
This automatic method takes a large number of peripheral conditions into consideration and can also react very individually to the special characteristics of a production facility so that even unusual features are taken into account in an optimal fashion.

Stacking instructions from CAD are taken into consideration, as are the production facility's physical stacking options.
The result of the stack load can then be subjected to one final PTS check in order to ensure that the chosen loading combination is not in conflict with any machine restrictions.

Carrousel Scheduler

Carrousel Scheduler

In the ebos® Carrousel Scheduler, the production units previously defined in the pallet loading (pallet, lines) are released, lined up, and planned.
This is where the classic "Production List" – also used in conventional host computer systems – is established.

The released production units are now automatically returned to production one at a time and the corresponding sub-systems are sent the data relevant for them at the appropriate point in time.
The progress of production is constantly indicated online in the display, both with graphic overview symbols and by means of detailed individual information.

ebos® also generates printed worksheets and labels as accompanying documents for production.

For example:

  • Print-out of the layout of the pallets or lines.
  • Print-out of individual CAD sheets of the components.
  • Print-out of labels to identify the components.
  • Print-out of special automatically generated instructions for the workers.

The quality of these accompanying documents is often decisive for the systematic avoidance of production faults.
The layouts of the print-outs can be modified very flexibly and can be altered and adjusted by the user himself.

CAD Link

CAD Link

In ebos®, the acquisition of data from external CAD systems has been designed to be especially flexible.

Of course, all data formats commonly encountered in the prefabricated parts industry (PXML, Unitechnik, BVBS) can be directly read.

Furthermore, it is also possible to individually adapt import converters which are thus capable of automatically carrying out specific conversions and corrections during the acquisition of data from various CAD sources. This makes it possible to guarantee uniform product coding right after importation in ebos® despite the use of different CAD data sources.

C-View - Carrousel Visualization

C-View - Carrousel Visualization

The current status of the cycle and all of its details are visualized in the ebos® Carrousel View.
All circulating and all stored pallets together with their current processing status are displayed. Like in all ebos® systems, the corresponding data of the relevant components can be visualized in great detail using the 3-D editor.

Furthermore, all relevant signals and release levels are also displayed in such a fashion – typical for the ebos® concept – so that they can be clearly interpreted even by laypersons.
The condition of connected sub-systems is likewise visualized – preferably with the option of visualizing the active error messages and the corresponding error archive (for sub-systems permitting such connections).

Optimized Production Screen

Optimized Production Screen

The ebos® system is also capable of controlling various different large electronic displays which can be adapted to individual installations.

Typical large electronic displays contain:

  • Comparison of desired and actual values for the component being manufactured during the given shift.
  • Overview screen for the operational condition of the sub-areas ("working," "waiting for data," "in fault state").
  • Remaining time until the end of the production cycle at the current station.
  • Display of detail information on the current manufacturing unit (e.g., 3-D image of the component or of the rebar).

Quality Check

Quality Check

The ebos® Quality Check Module allows, at certain stations, the fully automatic imaging of the finished or semi-finished components. These images are stored and are available for subsequent analysis and for quality checking.

The evaluation and display of the images can be performed in a special editor which displays dimensions and position coordinates in the display. By comparing this data with the 3-D CAD data, one can verify with certainty that production is proceeding exactly according to specifications.

Depending upon requirements, there are different methods of image capture. It is thus possible to, e.g., make a normal photo-digital image or also a 3-D height profile via laser triangulation scanner.

Storage Control

Storage Control

The ebos® Storage Control Module enables the warehouse management of the finished components.

The components are registered by bar code scanner and their storage location entered in the system. When a component leaves the warehouse, that, too, is registered by bar code scanner. Delivery of the component can thus be registered by the control system and this information forwarded to an ERP system (if appropriate).

This module makes it possible to manage the status of the orders simply and easily. This is especially important with larger orders, a portion of which has already been delivered to the construction site while another portion is still awaiting delivery – or perhaps even still has to be manufactured.

Mobile App

Mobile App

Using the ebos® Smartphone App, one can keep an eye on production from wherever you are.

The online display provides information on the production status of the current shift and on the availability of the individual installation parts.

By means of specific queries, it is also possible to access production statistics for previous days or to retrieve other important data.
Supported systems: iPhone, Android, WindowsPhone.

GPA - Graphical Performance Analyzer

GPA - Graphical Performance Analyzer

The ebos® GPA (Graphical Performance Analyzer) is a unique patented graphic analytical tool for studying production sequences.

The entire process sequence can be re-run and individual details subjected to closer scrutiny. Bottlenecks and opportunities for optimization can be easily recognized so that decisive steps can be taken to boost production efficiency.

Additionally, GPA is an efficient aid for final costing, to determine the actual effort required to manufacture the various different types of parts.

Report Print

Report Print

The ebos® Reporting Module delivers reports on completed production.
The format and the content structure of these reports can be individually adjusted and can also be continually adapted by the customer, himself.
Reports are typically printed out on paper or as PDFs.

There are different reports for:

  • List of transferred items.
  • List of stored items.
  • Summary of production figures (per shift / day).
  • Sum of production figures for any given period of time.

ERP Link

ERP Link

ebos® can exchange information very flexibly and comprehensively with higher-level ERP systems.

Basic order data (e.g., delivery dates) are typically read out from the ERP system and production feedback transmitted to the ERP system (e.g., "ready" messages, production statistics, effort analyses, machine availability data).
