VIMANA by System Insights Improved Shop Floor Efficiency at Curtiss-Wright Controls

Apr 2 2014, 6:12am CDT | by

Berkely, CA, April 02, 2014 --(PR.com)-- System Insights is rapidly expanding its customer base across discrete and process manufacturing industries including companies in Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Hydraulics, and Tooling. System Insights’ Customer Value Framework approach to client engagements, called the VIMANA Cycle, ensures that VIMANA delivers concrete economic benefits to clients within weeks of deployment. Client case studies, such as Curtiss-Wright Controls demonstrate how this highly differentiated manufacturing technology works.

Curtiss Wright Controls in Shelby, NC used VIMANA Core to improve equipment utilization by over 20% in a period of ten weeks. Curtiss Wright Controls were looking for a solution for manufacturing data collection and analysis with centralized data collection, automatic determination of machine tool utilization, and support for interfacing with different types of manufacturing equipment.

With VIMANA Core, Curtiss Wright Controls saw improvements on a production cell with 4 high-end CNC-based Horizontal Milling machine tools. Curtiss Wright Controls was able to monitor production efficiency and machine utilization without requiring any manual intervention or data collection. The plant team was able to easily compare the performance across different machine tools and use this information in process planning. Use of the MTConnect standard for data collection from the machine tools greatly reduced the cost of integration and enabled support of a variety of machine tools and controller types.
