The motivation for the development of a digital acceptance platform for the automotive industry was to document and track the level of maturity of the machines and systems centrally on a web platform during a new product launch. Corresponding key figures (KPI, degree of fulfillment in%) were defined and introduced within so-called ScoreCards in order to assess and measure the level of maturity and the quality level of the systems.
The aim was to make the frontend user-friendly and ergonomic, as the inspections take place on site at the machines. The individual acceptance scenarios are shown in the form of a wizard and help the customer to follow a structured and targeted procedure during the acceptance tests. The previous documentation in paper form or in Excel lists is no longer necessary.
The benefit of this portal is that the user receives the necessary transparency based on the level of maturity of the machines and systems during a start of series production. This also leads to a structured and more efficient processing of still open measures by the plant manufacturer and to ensuring the target dates requested by the customer, e.g. the SOP (Start of Production).
