For the specialist article about „piaOptimum“ we conducted several interviews with the Product Owner of the software applied. He explained its functionality by means of a real-life assembly line where piaOptimum is already in use. The software application detects bottlenecks in complex interlinked assembly plants and helps to improve production efficiency thanks to greatest possible data transparency. PIA Automation provided numerous charts and diagrams from the software which helped us to write the specialist article and present the different options for analysis and evaluation of the tool. The extensive article was published, for instance, in the magazine „etz – elektrotechnik & automation“ as well as in the magazine „Instandhaltung“ (online at https://bit.ly/2X2UkM5).
