          Georg+Otto Friedrich uses KM.ON's digital solution

          Georg+Otto Friedrich is using KM.ON’s k.management software to establish production performance of its machines. Karl Mayer’s tricot machines are operating at its headquarters in Groß-Zimmern & Limbach- Oberfrohna. It is using k.ey to network machines at these sites with KM.ON cloud so that staff can see overview of factory halls via mobile phone or tablet.

          The k.management has been being trialled at the company since January 2020.

          “We are now saving a lot of time and have real-time information to assist with our planning and decision-making,” said Kai Trippel, responsible for production in Georg+Otto Friedrich. Previously, it was impossible to get an overall impression of the production situation without daily tours of factory headquarters and inconvenient phone calls with the extremely busy shift managers at the plant in Saxony.

          Georg+Otto Friedrich is acting as KM.ON’s development partner for the k.management project, thus continuing a long-running tradition. This warp knitted fabric specialist was one of the first customers to Karl Mayer, KM.ON’s parent company. The company began business activities in 1950, using Karl Mayer machines. The two long-standing partners are now working together to tackle the challenge of digitalisation.

          In order to optimise k.management for customers, several weekly user workshops were held between March and May 2020. The online video conferences brought product manager Marcel Wenzel and UX/UI designer Pia Keller from KM.ON together with Trippel and those responsible for purchasing, production and technology at Georg+Otto Friedrich, and were extremely successful. The participants were able to use the details they shared on their production practices to draw up important requirements for preparing and presenting performance data.

          “We were able to quickly prioritise and work out issues such as which key figures are needed in which order at the first click, and which data should lead to deeper menu hierarchies,” said Wenzel.

          On the customer side, Trippel welcomes the opportunity to clear up his questions directly and provide suggestions for improvement effectively. “Things are now being fleshed out, and the software solution is getting its final touch before it’s ready for practical use,” said Trippel.

          Following the workshop phase, the requirements laid out during the dialogue with Georg+Otto Friedrich will be examined to determine their general validity for the market, and solutions for meeting these requirements will be worked out step by step. “We are taking an interactive and agile approach to the optimisation work,” said Wenzel. Kai Trippel is already looking forward to the next test version, which software developers Hristiyan Petrov and Martin Dederer are currently hard at work on.

          The digital k.management solution delivers a well thought-out dashboard with key figures on the machines used in production. The data ensures that processes are transparent, provides a basis for well-founded decisions, and can be called up easily at any time and from any location. Simply open the KM.ON homepage and log into your personal area using your unique login information. All the machines that are networked via k.ey are listed in this area. The first menu level provides an overview of all the machines. It provides key information on each machine, such as speed, effectiveness and the next upcoming beam change, summarised in a button-like display area. Clicking on this machine item displays more detailed data on the selected machine. In addition to this, the detailed view shows information such as speed and stop time curves with a choice of monitoring intervals, availability, and the processing status of orders in relation to the planned production time and production duration.

          In addition to k.management, KM.ON’s customers also appreciate k.innovation for the range of products offered by the Karl Mayer software start-up – particularly in the age of corona. The web-based design tool for warp knitting helps to shorten the time to market and, to this end, connects all those involved in the design process with appropriate access rights during the development and design of new products. Customers benefit from efficient teamwork and communication – without needing to travel – throughout the online creative process, from brainstorming to the finished fabric. Pattern data is transferred directly from the software to the machine. This saves time and prevents errors.
