Barcelona, month summary.

A cornerstone of Industry 4.0 is the interconnexion between different production items (horizontal integration), and these in turn with the factory's information systems (vertical integration). Horizontal Integration ensures that machinery and engineering processes work together seamlessly, while Vertical Integration makes production data available for decision making purposes, at all company levels. GIMM provides flexible solutions for connecting with external devices and software applications, which are commonly implemented in our projects. One example of this, is a project we are working on this month for the integration of LINCS and PROCS with a KARDEX warehousing solution.

Additionally, we have updated our product with three new functionalities. These improvements consists on an adaptation in the container label to highlight it with an error message when there is a sequence jump in it, to show a new status (Non-traceability PLC) in the workstations Monitoring Screen and to add the OEM Sequence Number into a segment of the SAP interface. These functionalities and several bug fixes are included in CU94 and CU95. Visit Customer Area for downloads.

Our best wishes.

May 2021


Barcelona, month summary.

Poka-Yoke is one important feature present in all GIMM solutions. This working strategy developed by Toyota in the 1960s, is applied nowadays in many logistics and production processes to simplify the operators work while significantly reducing the defects and speeding up the picking process. Poka-Yoke practices and technologies are chosen in accordance with the plant’s processes and automation level. This month we are working on projects with several of these solutions, from a basic ECS (Expedition Control System) with a manual barcode reader, pick-to-light and kitting systems and even RFID tunnels for automatic validations.

Other projects this month also aim to implement continuous improvement techniques by configuring different dashboards that will allow the plant to anticipate to changes or problems in their production and/or sequencing processes.

On the side of GIMM product developments, CU093 was released in May including 2 new functionalities, one for the creation of a Custom Shipment external interface and the other to change JitEvents interface making configurable the padding of the segment E1PRSQ. Visit Customer Area for downloads.

Our best wishes.

April 2021


Barcelona, month summary.

This month, amongst many others, we have a new project to implement Webpicking. This software is able to show Picking lists in a web application with the materials that an Operator must bring to the assembly lines, with no waste of paper for this task. The web application can be accessed by a browser installed in multiple devices, such as PCs, mobiles, iPads or Android tablets. The Kitting shows in which position of the picking repository should each material be placed. It also has a visual aid that can include a picture of the part and the location in the storage area.
The implementation of Webpicking results in multiple benefits for the plant such as optimization and reduction of displacement times, human error reduction and Fast training of operators, and at the same time is highly scalable and doesn’t need any hardware or software installation.

We have also released GIMM 4.0 CU92. This cumulative update solves some bug fixes and, as usually can be downloaded from the Customer Area .

Stay safe.

January 2021


Barcelona, month summary.

We start a new year that is still full of uncertainty. Nevertheless these are times for transformation and growth in every aspect of our lives. GIMM Team is fully committed with this new future finding new ways of doing, being Agile and most of all listening and adapting to our customers’ needs to move forward together. Best wishes for 2021.

Our projects in January will adapt current GIMM installations to the new requirements of the plants’ production and sequencing processes. Two of them aim to implement Synchron. The supply process for production material, spare parts, and stocked general material is commonly supported by EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). Synchron is our module for electronic data interchange between OEM’s plants and their suppliers. It compiles several solutions for connecting to PSA, RSA, TESLA and most recently to FORD NGAVS/EBC that is being implemented globally in Ford’s vehicle assembly plants.

We have also released GIMM 4.0 CU88. This cumulative update solves some bug fixes and, as usually can be downloaded from the Customer Area .

We hope all of you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
