ORAU Orhan Automotive

Today, automotive manufacturers are mostly working with zero stock. This refers to the production and supply on request for the supplier companies. From this point of view, failures and unpredictable maintenance in production can cause the production to slow down or stop. From this point of view, the system to be developed by the PIANiSM project will ensure that maintenance and failures can be anticipated by special algorithm. This will help to minimize the time lost due to both unobserved maintenance and faulty production. Another issue is that when the production machines fail, they will stop working or the failure will be noticed in a short time, but sometimes the failure does not directly affect the operation of the machine, it can cause deterioration of part quality and dimensional accuracy. In these cases, the produced products are discarded and both the loss of capacity and the loss of material are increased. With PIANiSM system such problems will be minimized and the scrap costs can be reduced. Scrap costs are those that affect part prices, and the reduced scrap rates will lead to a reduction in part prices and will increase competitiveness in terms of pricing.
