The FMS-200 Special Edition Industry 4.0 takes the most popular industrial advanced mechatronics training system on the market and combines it with advanced Industry 4.0 technologies for real-world skills-driven training.

Each station of the FMS-200 Special Edition i4o performs a specific task that as a whole assembles a functional part/product. To provide the system with greater flexibility, stations adapt to a wide variety of products, introducing variations in the materials, colors and part sizes. The combination of all these possibilities means that a total of 98 different products can be obtained enabling the use of production management strategies commonly found in Industry 4.0 industries, where batch-size of 1 is crucial.

It is arranged in four blocks: management, movement, supervision and administration, with a variety of functions.

1. User Management: configure the data for the user who started the session.

2. Physical Layout: inform the software of the system’s physical layout.

3. System Status: check the status of each station.

4. Order management: log production and dispatch orders. Manufacturing orders may be intended for customers or for stock.

5. Dispatcher: filter and launch different order types.

6. Warehouse: information on the warehouse status, as well as the corresponding details regarding the stored products.
