Internship: Development of an Equipment Management shell to manage and monitor machines - Ieper, Belgium

Internship: Development of an Equipment Management shell to manage and monitor machines in a standardised way 

Your future job

On the production floor of Melexis, microchips are being tested on a whole series of parameters in order to make sure only chips passing all necessary quality checks are being shipped to the customers. Therefore, different types of machines and applications are used. To optimise further the production processes, a ‘Smart Factory’ program is set up (following the ‘Industry 4.0’ concept), having as purpose to further digitise and automate the activities, to increase the efficiency, and to manage and monitor end-to-end the machines and production processes.

Within the project, a common 'Equipment management shell' will be built (based on the standardised OPC/UA protocol) to manage and monitor the machines on the production floor in a transparant way.

Services are needed to communicate with the machines using their specific interfaces, possibly with the additional use of specific devices (e.g. Rasberry Pi), to manage and monitor the machines, and to provide dashboard displaying the collected information.
