Meister Apps™ applications to be released today

Traceability template:
When an in-process or post shipment defect arises, this function traces when, where and how the relevant product was made as well as how much that product has spread. Traceability is realized by using information, including IoT data from the time of manufacturing, to infer a pattern for the cause of the defect.
Utility visualization template:
This is a function that supports the early detection of facility abnormalities by monitoring the operation status of factory utility facilities as well as monitoring the sensor values of external sensors, etc.
Factory visualization template:
This is a function that supports the discovery of points for improvement by displaying, as diagrams and graphs, production progress, facility events and quality-related alerts.
Analysis data output template:
This is a function used for the analysis and utilization of IoT data and business data stored in Meister DigitalTwin™ by extracting product basis data on various conditions across processes.

TDSL will continue to further fortify the Meister Series as well as strengthen its collaboration with the products and services of partner companies, and reinforce its cooperative relationships with partners who sell and roll out the Meister Series.
