PSIaps performs mold planning based on Qualicision technology

PSI Implements Next Phase of the Qualicision-based Optimization for Industrial Tires at Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH’s Korbach Plant

Berlin, 2 April 2020 – Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH’s Korbach plant has commissioned PSI FLS Fuzzy Logik & Neuro Systeme GmbH with the next phase of the software tool PSIaps for the Qualicision-based optimization of the production of industrial tires with AGV-based transports.

The Korbach plant manufactures industrial tires for the global market in several production stages. In between production steps, green tires are transported via automated guided vehicles (AGVs). PSIaps is already responsible for planning and executing both the production sequence at the machines and the AGV-based transports. Updates on machine and AGV status allow for adjustments to the actual shop floor situation.  With the next stage, the upstream process of mold planning is now also being implemented depending on customer demand and taking into account technical constraints.

The Korbach plant has been producing tires and technical tubes since 1907 and currently employs around 3,600 people.

Based on its own software products, PSI Group develops and integrates complete solutions for optimizing the flow of energy and materials for utilities (energy networks, energy trading, public transport) and industry (mining, metals production, automotive, mechanical engineering, logistics). PSI was founded in 1969 and employs 2,000 persons worldwide.
