FCA reached out to improve maintenance processes and reduce Mean Time to Repair (MTtR) for its 600 robots welding and moving cars along in the Cento (Italy) plant, one of the most advanced automotive plants in the world.
The plant is 99% automated, since the production line is monitored by an automated management system of the production flow. That means that each single minute of robots downtime costs $500.
For every work shift, 5 maintenance engineers can be called to recover technical failures and guarantee production continuity. Our aim was to make their job easier and more efficient, by leveraging a smart combination of indoor positioning, asset and people tracking.
