December 2022


Barcelona, month summary.

Material supply in time and in sequence systems are usually subject of many particularities caused either by the specificities of the OEM manufacturing plant, either by the kind of material and overall, by both the OEM and plant processes. To manage all these variances, a sequencing solution and the team behind it must be able to manage all this diversity ensuring system robustness, fast implementation and effective and quick support. GIMM-LINCS compiles all these capabilities that are revealed along the long list of projects that have implemented it. A few samples are starting this month in plants of the United Kingdom, Mexico and France.

These particularities make GIMM LINCS also evolve as a product. Following are the new functionalities released for LINCS in December:
• The use case LUC141 implements a new option in LINCS2 web interface that allows the user select the container that will be validated into a ECS (Expedition Control System) station.
• LUC145 adds new fields to Truck Management screen.
• LUC146 allows the incremental integration of OEM forecast data.

GIMM STOCS was upgraded with 2 big improvements as well:
• STOCS automated warehouse now includes the possibility to configure different AGV’s transport closure strategies in an internal table, based on the kind of the closed transport (putaway, normal/special/internal picking), the data returned from the AGV system when closing the transport, and the status of the container affected by the transport.

GIMM PROCS also has a new functionality available:
• Use case UC1357 implements a new interface with SAP MII (Manufacturing Intelligence and Integration module) to import into PROCS rework and scrap data.

October 2022


Barcelona, month summary.

New tools for GIMM-LINCS sequencing solution have been released in October.
• The first one is a new LINCS translator for BMW JIS5300 Calloff and degraded messages used by BMW San Luis de Potosí (Mexico).
• The second is a Production Planning tool. This planner is prepared to receive the files with the production plan coming from an external system. These files are integrated in the system and then, the production orders are generated in accordance with a set of rules configured in the system. During the process, the user will be able to modify the quantities to be produced and to lock production of certain references. All Calculations made by the system as well as the modifications entered by the users and the original values are logged for traceability purposes.

Other functionalities added this month are:
• UC1331. It is a new PROCS workstations function to restart production of a JIT order.
• SUC201, a Job for receiving JIT orders and reorders by Rest API.

July 2022


Barcelona, month summary.

When we make an overview of our deployment projects, we love to see how our solutions help our customers in both managing the production and delivery of goods as well as in the improvement of their processes by introducing tools that reduce human error and speed up processes. This can be seen in the project list of this month. You will find, for example, projects to implement Webpicking systems, customized quality assurance processes, … or projects to modify the systems workflow adapting it for new components produced by the plant.

Our GIMM internal projects also reflect the same. This month we have mainly released improvements to reduce the time required by users or GIMM technicians in several GIMM related processes, as well as to improve the quality. The processes that will gain in performance and functionality are documentation access and sharing, systems update and configuration and systems monitoring:

- Download center’s user interface has been redesigned to make the information more accessible by reducing the steps needed to view and access all our solutions documents. Additionally, a Customer Document’s repository has been created, aimed to ease documents exchange between GIMM teams and our customers.

- Support Manager Application is an advanced tool completely configurable and flexible, that allows GIMM Support Team to flexibly monitor the status of our clients' servers, the performance of our applications and the execution of maintenance plans automatically.

- CU017 for Lincs2 includes improvements in Alerts, Containers and Trace level screens. The changes also include new checking operations to secure the integration of Master Data files and system configuration improvements.

- CU030 for Runblocks (LINCS core system) adds one new functionality to allow modification of specific Plant’s configuration files without user intervention, by using GIMM Update Tool.

May 2022


Barcelona, month summary.

During this month our customers are adapting their GIMM systems to new business needs or customizing them in alignment with their production processes improvements. The list below shows some of these projects related to OEMs as VW, TESLA, SCANIA, PSA, FORD, GM,...

From the new functionalities side, three cumulative updates including nine functionalities were released for GIMM and LINCS solutions. A few examples are:

UC1228, UC1236 and UC1302 implement Quality Control mechanisms to handle updated references for certain subsections and/or operations. The system will block the production of these references and request Quality Control approval to unblock the items. However, until this happens, a limited amount of these parts should be allowed to be produced. The exact limit can be set at critical subsection level or at critical operation level. The system sends an email to quality team informing of the parts that have been produced inside this limit.

UC1254 introduces a new option in Webpicking terminals maintenance "Next List Auto" that allows to disable the popup to select the list to process, and so to start validating next pending list automatically without user interaction.

UC1335 has made several improvements in both functionality and technology in the Barcode Configuration screen.

LUC124 implements in LINCS version 2, the standard translator for call-off and forecast messages that are received from FIAT.

This month we are starting several projects related with new OEM’s requirements, as the new degraded communication system for STELLANTIS called SP3, and the changes in TMA field in SEAT’s Deljit.

Other interesting projects in April are implementing GIMM WebPicking and WebStation modules together with our sequencing or MES solutions. GIMM - WebPicking software can show picking lists with the materials that operator must bring to the assembly lines in a web application without waste of paper for this task. GIMM- WebStation offer a friendly user interface for the interaction with PLCs. Both web applications can be accessed by a browser installed in multiple devices such as PCs, iPads or Android Tablets.

Two Product upgrades were released in April, one for GIMM CU112 and the other for LINCS2 CU014, including 2 new features:

UC1326 - Adds a new configurable option in the GIMM SCS workflow that allows to make a double human validation of the container scanning. This workflow will require to insert of a special barcode or PIN number to permit the operator to continue with the validation. The special barcode will be required after any bad scanning is performed.

LUC121 – New option in the Interfaces module of LINCS to allow the system to process, prepare and generate data for one item of for all pending items, based on a configurable parameter of the user interface.

Please, stay tuned for more news and updates.

Our best wishes.
