CASE STUDY | MANN + HUMMEL ger. With this add-on, it is immediately clear which components are installed and where they are located, so it is not necessary to keep a disproportionate number of PLCs in stock. Factory Floor Status also lists all current firmware versions, so it is easy to check whether an error was caused by outdated firmware or whether an update is needed. At Mann + Hummel, versiondog has now become such an important tool that the trainees now use it, too. “Education and a high level of knowledge are key factors in ensuring good maintenance,” explains Klaus Wanninger. When trainee maintenance staff work on projects involving PLCs and EPLAN technology, they make sure to document their project versions in their own folders. Whenever a change is made, then this must also be documented – just like in the real world. The only difference is that supervisors and instructors can intervene at any time to give advice regarding potential improvements. “They learn how to use versiondog during their training so they are ready to go as soon as they are finished,” says Wanninger. Mann + Hummel is also happy to present versiondog to other interested companies at its production facility. Klaus Wanninger explains: “We first encountered versiondog’s predecessor, VersionWorks, in the factory of another user. The best way to find out how something works and how it is used is to see it in action in the real world. In most cases, companies can see the potential benefits of the software after just a few minutes”. This is why versiondog has also become a maintenance standard at Mann + Hummel. A standard that works, and a standard that everyone is happy to use. Page 4/4
