During the launch of the mobile maintenance project at Škoda Auto, Windows Mobile was the only allowed group mobile platform. The native mobile application had started in 2015 based on Windows Mobile 6.5 and was upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile in 2016. The Android platform was approved and added by the group in 2017, and since 2020, mobile maintenance has also been used on the iPhone iOS platform. MobileIron is used as an MDM (Mobile Device Management) platform.
The steel service center company, ArcelorMittal Gonvarri SSC Senica, has expanded the PROCE55-based production and maintenance monitoring project with mobile maintenance and mobile inspection of dedicated technical equipment. The project uses PROCE55 Mobile Maintenance technology from East-Gate. Android-based smartphones are used as mobile devices.
The mobile maintenance project at Škoda Auto has expanded from production to logistics. Logistics maintenance ensures the operability and availability of equipment providing internal logistics - transport between shops, lines, within lines, equipment and facilities in warehouses. The specificity of the project is that a large part of these devices do not have a fixed position and are in permanent motion. Maintenance in logistics is used in production plants in Mladá Boleslav, Kvasiny and Vrchlabí and the expected number of users is around 500. Android and iPhone iOS mobile platforms are used in the project.
East-Gate successfully deployed production monitoring on a pilot production line at the largest milk producer in Slovakia, RAJO a.s. Bratislava. Already during the first weeks, thanks to the PROCE5 OEE system and the online collection of real production data directly from the lines, there was possible to identify and reveal important potential for improvement. RAJO a.s. belongs to the German group Meggle AG and uses the SAP system for economic management.
