Arianna – IA

Mobile App for monitoring – in real time – the production process of automation systems and electric presses.

Industrial IoT

The Arianna-IA app was created to offer Industrial Automation customers a quick and accurate tool to remotely monitor, in a few simple steps, both the status of the machine and its key information. Thanks to this application it is possible to obtain in real time the machine status (RUN / STOP) by checking how many minutes it has been in a certain status. Furthermore, it is possible to view information related to production, such as the number of pieces produced in the day and to access the detailed list of alarms and warnings without any type of direct intervention on the machine. In the section dedicated to graphs, on the other hand, production is monitored on a daily, weekly, monthly or annual basis.

By accessing the "DETAIL" section, it is displayed the number of pieces produced for each single article in the different time intervals.

The app also provides the user with the ability to configure a series of notifications in order to stay updated on any status changes.

Customer Needs

Automazioni Industriali, after having internally developed a first version of the mobile app, has selected DuckMa as a supplier to create the Mobile App to be published on the AppStore and Google Play to distribute it to its customers of automation systems and electric presses present in around 23 countries of the world.

DuckMa Solution

By applying our Method, we organized the Discovery workshop involving the Company's decision makers in a half-day technical meeting in which the needs and criticalities of the project emerged. After designing the mobile app screens, we moved on to creating the sources using the Flutter framework, created by Google in 2017. Within about 2 months from the start of the project, we delivered the Beta version for testing by the team of Industrial Automation engineers dedicated to the project. In mid-August 2021, after some optimizations, we published the App on the Store.

In addition to providing after-sales assistance we have launched, due to the customer request, a training program for the team of engineers who will manage the application internally in order to provide them with full competencies on the application.

Results Collected by the App

About 2 months after its publication (November 2021), we have collected the first positive feedback from entrepreneurs, production managers, machine operators who used the application and they considered it to be useful and intuitive. Currently, the company has decided to push the distribution of the Mobile App in the Italian and English language version to customers of electric presses. The market reaction has been positive and encouraging and for this reason some users are still asking for new features, reflecting the strong consent obtained from the market.

In the near future, the application will be used by the sales force as a value-added solution for an Industrial Automation plant or press.
