BMW Body Shop Quality Management on the NetBeans Platform
By Geertjan on Jul 12, 2013
The tool provides functions for modeling the following:
- facilities (trees of production equipment)
- assemblies (trees of parts and work items)
- drawings (images plus dynamic content)
- stations (inspection, rework)
For each station, users define various checks, which have to be performed in the production areas. The inspectors have to check all work items made by robots and humans based on the drawings containing various dynamic items, such as welding points, weld seams, bond seams, and screws. These items are presented as dots, lines, polygons, grids and text content.
The software is built on top of NetBeans Platform 7.2 using a lot of functionality provided by the platform, such as trees, windows, visual library, and the auto update mechanism.
