German Innovation Awards for the Audi dpa

The production planning of the future now also for the workplace

The second part of our project for the Audi dpa is also successful. The digital planning assistant for Audi production lines "dpa" was the winner of the German Innovation Award in two categories: Excellence in Business to Business - Information Technologies and in the additional category Design Thinking. In this project we have now made the successful app available for the desktop PC. Production lines of different locations can now be overlooked and a 2D visualization of the line can be used interactively. Many thanks to our customer Audi and our partner SABO Mobile IT for the joint innovative and exciting project.

Customer information on current events

Dear customers,

health comes first. We would therefore like to make a joint contribution to the containment of the COVID-19 virus. As specialists for digital solutions, we have therefore decided to switch our company to remote operation and provide you with decentralised support, i.e. primarily from the home office. We have already successfully completed the test run and will be there for you as usual.

We would like to invite you to join us and use all possibilities to hold meetings via conference tools and to minimize attendance.
CaderaDesign has a number of options for this, which we would be happy to present to you. The goal is not to cancel appointments, but to use exciting new ways of communication and organize ourselves together. We will contact you separately and agree on the best measures.

We wish you a healthy and also successful time!

Best regards
Your Tom Cadera and team

With the iF Award, the clever MindSphere app for smart watches and smart phones has received a second design prize. The notifier automatically delivers all important messages directly to your wrist. In this way it is possible to react to problems and disruptions quickly and effectively.

Our vision for AI-supported machine operation

Intelligent Assistant - A joint initiative of three teams of experts

Imagine: Machines would learn from our interaction with them and make their own suggestions. They would teach us how to install, operate, retrofit, maintain and repair them. They would point out our potential errors and protect us from accidents without bothering us with irrelevant inquiries.

Illustrations facilitate the setup

Illustrative user interface for packaging machines

The new HMI by Kiefel PACKAGING is based on self-explanatory illustrations and animations. It makes highly complex technology understandable, facilitating the input of parameters. We are pleased the project has been completed successfully and about the mention on the "Elektrotechnik Automatisierung" website.
