jambit supported ams-OSRAM International GmbH in the development of a customized software for component tracing. The company is a leading manufacturer of optoelectronic components. ams-OSRAM International GmbH sets worldwide standards in the areas of lighting, visualization, and sensor technology. The resulting software called "Tracy" helps to reduce quality management costs.
How does component traceability secure production processes?
In the production of semiconductors at ams-OSRAM International GmbH, there are natural fluctuations affecting the product features. During the multi-stage production process, a large amount of data emerges and is stored in databases. Traceability enables rapid access to important information from the production flow, regardless of the original source of this data. Today, supply chains are global and production processes are networked on the Internet of Things. This results in an increasing challenge in tracking individual product components. Software offers potential for better component tracing in quality management and helps in minimizing product errors and reducing costs.
jambit offers us a holistic support from the UX concept to the back-end and the go-live. This enables us to provide our users with not only a high-performance but also user-friendly tool.
User-centered approach for the project start with jambit
With Tracy, jambit developed a software in a classic iterative approach. At the same time, agile know-how was also transferred to the customer. The focus was on our user-centered approach with a design study. With the software development, jambit wanted to offer industry users particularly good usability in their daily work. Because usability is often neglected for industry-oriented users. The Minimum Viable Product developed as a result served as a basis for future Tracy use cases.
International software development with Big Data competence
In this project, several international locations with different philosophies came together. In addition to cultural challenges, technical challenges in the areas of data quality, access possibilities, and computing capacities had to be solved. For this purpose, several globally distributed data sources in Europe and the Far East were extracted and exported into an Elasticsearch cluster after harmonization and transformation of the partially very different data states. jambit achieved a massive improvement in data quality together with ams-OSRAM International GmbH by abstracting different database technologies and harmonizing the data.
With a total of 10 million complex data sets at the beginning of the project, solutions were found to master the Big Data challenges during the course of the project. Through regular delta imports, the dispositive-oriented system was fed with operational data. Building on this, a web-based user interface was implemented.
An interdisciplinary team for a wide-ranging task
Since 2018, the cross-functional jambit team consists of UX designers, web front-end, back-end, and system architects. Project managers, Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters take care of a smooth project flow.
