Wlkata Mirobot as a Solution for AIoT and Industry 4.0 Education of Production Processes Simulation and Modeling

The mini robotic arm from WLKATA was specifically designed for engineering education. This open-platform hardware has a multi-functional extension module that can expand the external interface of the Mirobot. Users can thus develop their own applications with a mainstream platform. With its powerful and practical features, flexible programming, and technical certifications, you can get a lot from this mini robotic arm. This tool was designed to have the brain and brawn of industrial-grade robots without their cost and weight. The software also has decent features. With its overall capacity, it can bring robotics education and relationship with production processes simulation to the next level.

Industrial robots are most widely used in the automotive manufacturing industry. The smart factory for automobile production integrates a variety of artificial intelligence technologies such as intelligent control and sensors. The production line built by Wlkata mirobot components is based on a real car production scene, vividly showing the car assembly, welding, assembly, and other processes. Automobile Assembly Line is an effective combination of man and machine, and fully reflects the flexibility of the equipment.

Siemens Digital Industries Software - Solid Edge Learning Resources for Educators

Using the Solid Edge Academic bundle academic institutions can teach their students not just mechanical CAD but a wide range of product development topics that will give their students experience in areas like:

  • Creating photorealistic images and animations of designs and using these to communicate academic project work.
  • Creating 3D digital models (also known as a "digital twin") of designs and using these throughout the project lifecycle.
  • Optimizing components for strength, weight and material usage using Solid Edge Generative Design.
  • Reusing data from suppliers and other projects that is supplied in different CAD data formats.
  • Component level computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis using Simcenter FloEFD for Solid Edge.
  • Manufacturing parts accurately and efficiently using both traditional machining and new 3D printing technologies, etc.

Siemens DISW - A holistic approach to Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM)

The growing complexity and variation of markets is forcing manufacturers to rethink their source-make-deliver processes, depending on target market locations, requirements and conditions. This requires a closer integration of manufacturing operations in the company's overall value chain – which will in turn call for harmonization of technologies, the capability to handle massive data flows, the use of appropriate metrics, and last but not least, the correct interpretation of this information.

Manufacturing operations management (MOM) is a holistic solution that provides full visibility into manufacturing processes so you can steadily improve manufacturing operations performance. As the evolution of a manufacturing execution system (MES), a MOM system consolidates all production processes to improve quality management, advanced planning and scheduling, manufacturing execution systems, R&D management and more.

RTLS (Real-Time Location System ) in the processing and testing of simulation models in a specialized TestBed laboratory

RTLS (Real Time Positioning System) are real-time systems for locating objects or people inside or outside buildings. They are used in medical facilities, manufacturing plants, warehouses and other industries where it is necessary to control the movement of equipment or personnel. Sewio RTLS consists of several components including transmitters, receivers, antennas and software. Transmitters are placed on the objects to be tracked and emit signals that are then received by receivers. The receivers process the signals and send the data to the central control system, where it is analyzed and presented as information about the location of the objects.

Integration of industrial engineering methods into a real project

Simulation and virtualization are two tools that open the door to new ways of training, education and practical use in many industries. These technologies allow us to create and work in simulated or virtual environments. In professional circles and in research, simulations and virtualization are used to test hypotheses, model complex systems, and improve understanding of real-world situations. For practical applications in various industries, these technologies allow to reduce costs, minimize risks and improve performance. Key issues in simulation include obtaining valid source information about a relevant selection of key characteristics and behaviors, use of simplifying approximations and assumptions within the simulation, and the fidelity and validity of the simulation results. Simulation and virtualization are constantly evolving fields that contribute to innovation and improvement in many aspects of our lives.

The project life cycle includes the necessary steps for project managers to successfully manage a project from start to finish. According to the ISO 10006 standard, four phases of the project life cycle are defined:

  • Project concept,
  • Project development,
  • Implementation of the project,
  • Completion of the project.

The workshop is supported by project:
