DMG MORI WERKBLiQ

DMG MORI’s WERKBLiQ platform is designed to simplify and streamline maintenance processes in production. As Managing Director Tim Busse explains it, “WERKBLiQ allows machine operators to visualize all structures and processes of the maintenance organization digitally and independently of manufacturer. This also includes the internal and external interaction channels and the entire contract and documentation management.” Employees record and document all activities and processes on the machinery during their day-to-day work. They are supported by customizable and interactive input masks. The press of a button alerts internal maintenance directly from the machine in the event of a breakdown and triggers the saved service process.

According to DMG MORI, even machines without a network connection can be integrated and managed in WERKBLiQ via mobile end devices. Implementation usually takes under 48 hours.

Continuous documentation and recording of data on the shop floor enable end-to-end transparency in the subsequent process. The WERKBLiQ evaluation module enables maintenance and production managers to evaluate relevant key indicators and use the results to implement continuous improvements.
