Automobile manufacturer commissions the implementation of a state-of-the-art production control room from JST

“The central production control room is the most modern in the Audi production network and is symbolic of the Audi Smart Factory,” says Peter Kössler, Member of the Board of Management for Production at AUDI AG. In an area of 400 square meters in San José Chiapa, Mexico, a total of 105 employees monitor the creation of the Audi Q5. To ensure premium quality standards, Audi connected the plant in Mexico globally with other locations in the Audi production network. The automobile manufacturer from Ingolstadt was supported in this gigantic project by the JST control room specialists.

More than 150 displays, seven large display walls, 35 ergonomically designed workstations and high availability technical equipment are available to the control room team in the Mexican production control room – supplied and installed by the Jungmann experts. The Audi employees practically have a bird’s eye view to monitor the various steps in the production process of the Q5 premium SUV. But it is not only the dimensions that make the new control center so extraordinary.

Detecting the smallest deviations early on

Jochen Fichtner, Head of IT at Audi Mexico, explains the remarkable innovation that the German carmaker has implemented at the Central American site: “For the first time, this central control center combines five control rooms that are often physically separated at other Audi sites. “By merging individual interfaces, the various control centers can communicate efficiently and directly with each other. This enables us to detect the smallest deviations at an early stage and to react in time.”

Proactive alarm management with PixelDetection®

In order to be able to act proactively as desired, the operators are supported by the JST software PixelDetection®. In combination with the MultiConsoling® operating concept, the reliable alarm medium monitors the processes and displays in the background. If there are any deviations from the previously defined parameters, the employees at the automobile manufacturer’s control room will be alerted clearly via the installed AlarmLight. You can act proactively before any disruption occurs. The warnings can be given both acoustically and visually, for example by colour changes or pulsating colours.

Remote access live from Ingolstadt possible

The JST experts were also able to meet another requirement of the vehicle manufacturer: Digitisation and networking of the various global Audi plants are to be accelerated. With JST technology, it is therefore possible for the Audi control room in Ingolstadt, Germany, to connect remotely to the production control room in San José Chiapa in order to provide technical support.

Production control room with benchmark character

Head of IT Jochen Fichtner is convinced. “This control room, which monitors and controls logistics processes, IT infrastructure, production system, body shop, paint shop and final assembly from one location, has benchmark character.”
