To handle continuous production for Chrysler Group's Jeep Wrangler, KUKA systems group needed an automated manufacturing solution that would meet the demands of a rigorous production schedule and have the flexibility to produce multiple car models on the same assembly line. In order to meet its goals, the company implemented an intelligent system anchored by Windows embedded and Microsoft SQL Server that connects 259 assembly-line robots with a controller, over 60,000 device points, line-of-business applications, and back end systems. The new solution delivers continuous uptime and produces more than eight different car models and over 830 car bodies each day.
