Overview Challenge Solutions Benefits

To handle continuous production for Chrysler Group's Jeep Wrangler, KUKA Systems Group needed an automated manufacturing solution that would connect assembly-line robots with a controller, multiple devices, applications and back-end systems. The company implemented a system anchored by Windows Embedded and Microsoft SQL Server that controls 246 robots and produces more than 700 car bodies each day. The new solution added flexibility to the manufacturing process, provided continuous uptime and increased visibility.
