Digitalisation of manufacturing and quality assurance processes

Challenge

MotorOne Group provides a wide range of automotive aftermarket products and services. Acknowledging ever-evolving customer expectations and the acceleration of technological change, MotorOne seeks to future-proof the manufacturing and quality assurance process of its car detailing and cleaning product range by digitally capturing and monitoring key information on the factory floor.

Proposed Solution

Tapping into Swinburne University of Technology’s Industry 4.0 expertise, MotorOne Group (MOG) aims to develop an innovative Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT)-based solution for real-time assessment of product quality and traceability.

Over the next 6 months, the project team will design and build a framework that seamlessly integrates sensing, communication and data analytics. The focus will be on enabling machine-to-machine communication, designing interactive human-machine interfaces, and integrating aggregated IIoT data with existing systems (e.g., ERP) to assists production processes and support data-driven decision making in real-time. By taking a modular design and agile deployment approach, the team hopes to deliver a practical IIoT-based manufacturing solution that MOG and potentially other SMEs can adopt in their plants.

As part of the project, MOG and select industry partners will undertake an Industry 4.0 readiness and maturity assessment to determine the overarching potential of Industry 4.0 of their organisation, helping them prioritize requirements and develop their long-term digital manufacturing strategy.
