Last Friday we had the pleasure of learning more about Bosch Rexroth’s new interactive communications platform for manufacturing industries: ActiveCockpit.
This software elevates Bosch Rexroth’s already well established i4.0 Mechtronics Training System to an entirely new level by offering endless possibilities for both analyzing and communicating information.
ActiveCockpit is at the very heart of industry 4.0, it digitally networks people, products, and production equipment.
What does all of this mean for education?
Academia is looking for ways to help industry increase productivity and decrease down times.
ActiveCockPit was developed by Mechanical Engineers to be the most state-of-the-art Shop Floor Management software available today.
This interactive communication platform is the nexus for i4.0 initiatives and courses.
Bosch manufacturing plants throughout the world who are focused on i4.0 use Active Cockpit for daily Management and Logistics, but also to communicate real-time data between production plants.
Our Academic partners would be interested to know that this value stream methodology equips the end users with all the feedback and troubleshooting diagnostics for PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act).
Active Cockpit’s open architecture is designed to accept and implement any web-based functionality and the data can be displayed on any laptop, phone, tablet, etc.
What’s more, Bosch will provide api files so institutions can develop their own i4.0 apps. Click here to view the brochure.
