Linie 2000 – Technology in Java™
Assembly Line with Micro PLC Control System and Java Framework
For the project Linie 2000 of the company TRW Airbag Systems a new generation of software to control assembly lines has been developed as a 100% Pure Java application with Java 1.3. Due to the heterogeneous structure of the company network at TRW Airbag Systems the platform independence of Java has become a great advantage. The server components of the system are working with HP-UX, Linux and as a client platform Windows XP/NT comes into operation for the standard office computers. Communication between production line computer and clients has been realized using RMI. The complete configurations of the assembly line and of every single manufacturing order have been stored at the production line computer. For that purpose a MySQL™ database has been integrated using JDBC.
