Carl Wouters, Atlas Copco
Atlas Copco is constantly looking for ways to improve their products and services throughout the whole product lifecycle of their machines in all aspects. To reduce cost of ownership, they integrate simulation and data analytics from engineering to production, sales, and services. One of their objectives is to enable thousands of sales engineers to do reliable performance simulations during customer engagements while interacting with customers. Another objective is to allow the services division to set up different customer-specific maintenance strategies based on real-time data collection from more than 100,000 machines in the field.
Connecting colleagues, customers, and the supply chain using a single source of truth results in shorter manufacturing throughput times and improved workplace safety. This is achieved by establishing an enterprise-wide data acquisition and analytics platform. The importance of a model-based engineering approach is key.
This presentation showcases how this approach leads to better products and services throughout the whole product lifecycle.
