Smart Factories - trexDCAS

Smart Factory ;

In Smart Factory, each product can be followed up with an ID at the end of production (barcode, RFID, sensor, not marking on the product) Product traceability must be monitored instantaneously as software. Process data which can be accessed instantaneously in the parameters of the tools used in production (machine, robot, human, instrument) (tension, temperature, speed, pressure, energy consumption) should be kept in the statistical database. Software and hardware must be installed to remotely manage the production tools (machine, robot, human, instrument). Process data and data analysis of the output data produced should be used to make decisions or suggestion systems. Software that optimizes the production efficiency by using the process data from the production tools and the data from the system that evaluates the product quality should be used. Estimation systems should be established by creating scenarios and models with production data. Systems should be installed that can predict potential failures of production tools (sensors, forecasting software, statistical information associated with the manufacturer’s database). When the means of production give error, malfunction, maintenance need information, the related unit should be automatically transmitted.


The production plan should be automatically updated according to the conditions of the resources (human, material, machine, equipment, mold) to be used in production in accordance with the purposes for that time. Systems that minimize setup times should be installed when the product switches to the product. The production plan can be optimized according to the use of energy-intensive production tools (paint, drying) at times when energy is cheap. An accurate production plan should be made by estimating the past production data. The production plan should be optimized and simulated to optimize it. Production performance data should be shared instantly during operation.


The automation system should be installed, and the automation system should support the product type conversions. There should be robots and sensors that measure the quality of production. Robots must be mobile in multiple factories or departments. Robots working with personnel should improve the ergonomics of the working environment. (To make cargo movements easier, to do more delicate work.) To do non-complex work with robots Robots should be used for monotonous works for people. Robots should be used in dangerous work.

Social business network;

In-house communication network Applications that provide business-to-business interactions between departments should be used to receive instant support services.

Virtual Education;

Applications such as virtual reality, participatory training for new recruiters. Planning and monitoring the trainings needed according to personnel competencies. Staff competencies need to be transparent and participatory.
