ATOM or Active Tool Order Management is a system that digitally transforms a complex tool management process inside of the Bosch manufacturing plant. By optimising the process flow for the transportation and maintenance of tools that are needed at the assembly lines, the overall physical space that used to be occupied by unused tools was optimised with around 18%.
This multi-actor system aims to operate in the manufacturing industry and is intended to act as a process automation solution for simplifying the tool management and lifecycle in manufacturing plants
The system is composed of a responsive web SPA (Single Page Application) that supports a set of 8 actors. The SPA consumes a monolithic API that is integrated with other Bosch systems
We've been working with the team at Bosch for a few years now for tailoring the ATOM project for their needs in an incremental fashion. The max number of people working concurrently on the project was around 6 people.
.NET Core was used as the main technology for creating a RESTful monolith on the API side
The web client is represented by an Angular 8 SPA client that consumes the exposed APIs
The infrastructure is custom and is hosted on Bosch's internal cloud
