To help the employees in the extensive plants get to the right place at the right time, the production managers at the BMW Group plant in Regensburg wanted a mobile solution that combines relevant data from various IT systems. The goal: to proactively bring the right information to the employee instead of actively letting the employee search for data.
The solution developed by in-tech for BMW is called FLIPS: A mobile app that provides quality assurance employees with exactly the information they need to monitor production - when they need it.
To ensure seamless integration into BMW's existing IT infrastructure, the developers coordinated with BMW's IT managers. The development team paid particular attention to IT security, as the application requires access to various databases with highly sensitive production data. Thanks to the smartConnect modular system and the agile development method, results could be produced very quickly: After only 3 months, the first version was ready for pilot operation.
