JUST MES, the software suite developed by Up Solutions for the textile and apparel sector, will be presented at ITMA 2019 with its new release.
The quadrennial event, where the key players of the industry and service sector converge, will see the debut of the “Info Point” module, designed to monitor operations through mobile devices.
Lomazzo (Como Province, Italy), 24th April 2019 – The next edition of ITMA will be held from 20th to 26th June, this year in Barcelona – Spain. At the event, where the main players of the textile industry and service sector gather to discover and explore cutting-edge proposals in the various segments of the supply chain, Up Solutions will reveal the new release of JUST MES, the suite composed of four integrated solutions for the design, planning, monitoring and control of the production chain. In a nutshell, it caters for the entire production flow of manufacturing companies specialized in textiles and fashion. The release will specifically concern the “just monitoring” solution, which is dedicated to the collection and control phases of the production data.
Founded in 2011 as a spinoff of another firm, since 2013 Up Solutions has been part of PA Group, a global leader in consultancy, technology and services in the digital innovation sector. Its vocation and specialization in the world of textiles and fashion derive from its Como origins and from the experience initially developed with the companies of the District. The scope of its services has now reached international dimensions: from the offices of Como NExT, an Innovation Hub which is a national tech-culture reference point, Up Solutions boasts 160 customers in 30 different countries, employing 30 people.
The key element of the new version of just monitoring is the “Info Point” module which, through the APP, designed by Up Solutions and available for all systems, will allow simple and immediate monitoring of all operations, from tablets and smartphones, in complete mobility; hence it will no longer be necessary to install it on fixed stations within the department. “To be always aligned with the needs that our customers express – commented the CEO Davide Giustina – we are constantly projecting towards product updates and with this release, just monitoring actually enters the online world, because the solution allows the installation also on platforms such as Azure: this is an advantage for customers who are planning to migrate to Cloud systems.”
Configurable and with great application flexibility, based on the type of machine and the production objectives (quantities produced, progress, productivity), the solution enables the integration between data collection and analysis: this allows the real-time detection of machine failures and system anomalies and the measurement of the relationship between real and expected results, translating it also into reports and graphs. These are all key information (for the measurement of R.O.I and improvement of the K.P.I) which supports decisions to reduce costs, improve production and optimize the use of resources. An efficiency that is the result of the digital transformation in Industry 4.0, of which Up Solutions is an accredited interpreter, by all its loyal customers.
Also designed to be used in complete mobility, both inside and outside the company, the other novelty that will be unveiled at Up Solutions stand at ITMA is the new reporting Dashboard based on PowerBI.
The location to meet Up Solutions at ITMA is:
A102, Hall 8.1 (North Access)
Case history of success: the machine-to-machine communication model
Internationally, just monitoring is also used by KORSDA GLOBAL, a world leader in reinforcement materials for the tire, composite and construction industries. Over the years Kordsa has accumulated great skills, improving itself not only thanks to these two factors, but also to its strategic approach to the tire reinforcement market.
After a benchmark phase, in 2012 Kordsa chose Up Solutions for the creation of the Global Shopfloor Project (an internal project for the computerization of its production plants).
With the project, the manufacturing plants of the group have been entirely digitized: all production-related information is automatically displayed on each machine and the production portal includes and grants access to all applications in a single platform shared by all users. Through real-time reports, production supervisors are now able to view the overall status of the machines in the production area.
