Volkswagen dramatically improves process monitoring

Axis network cameras prevent costly delays to Passat production

Shanghai-Volkswagen's just-in-time production process has been considerably improved

Mission

To ease work and prevent delays in their production process, Shanghai-Volkswagen searched for a reliable verification system to their existing scanner control system. The production of every single car should be controlled and monitored by a system that matches the existing scanner system.

Solution

Axis network cameras were installed as part of a system created by SeeTec and ICS Industrielle Automatisierungssysteme. The camera monitors any errors and sends the image of the scanner to an Emergency Data Entry PC. To ensure that all components of the security system work properly, a flexible video management software was integrated.

Result

Employees save time by not having to physically go to the car to re-read the barcode. Volkswagen’s just in-time production process was considerably improved. The visual verification system is tailor-made for the existing technical configuration and increases the value of the Network at Volkswagen.
