Line Monitoring System
LMS Life / Schneider Electric
Challenge and Application
LMS Life is an analysis software specifically designed for industrial IoT applications and production facilities. The biggest challenge for our team was to visually present the extremely large amounts of data in an appealing and understandable way. With thoughtful infographics, service technicians can now quickly understand the complex relationships and information. Furthermore, we have established a drill-down navigation and thus created a clear structure for the intuitive operation of the UI, despite the large amount of information and complexity.
Sustainable Solution for the Future
With the new LMS, the evaluation of performance and other production metrics is completely digital, so that managers can now work with the device of their choice instead of countless printouts. The user interface is designed to be flexible for a variety of individual requirements of different types of systems, thus having the necessary flexibility to be able to depict complex production systems. In addition, the software is scalable and can be easily integrated at different locations around the world.
Evolution - from LMS to EMS
Thanks to its flexible and universally applicable design, LMS Life can also be easily adapted to completely different areas: the software is already used as a monitoring system in cake and steel production as well as for remote service in e-charging parks. The focus has shifted from data analysis and visualization to order management, line status, and display of current errors. The tool has thus become even more versatile. The next step is the adaptation to the field of energy monitoring.
