Free APP templates

Over 200 customers use TULIP on their shoploors every day. Based on these best practices, more than 70 APP templates are available, from APPs for digital incoming goods inspection, digital assembly instructions, digital test records, APPs for recording machine data to shipping documentation.

Benefits for Customers

Digitize your manufacturing processes with the knowledge of your employees 

The most commonly used medium in production is still paper. Assembly instructions, quality checklists, process documentation or rework records are mostly paper documents. The data recorded on them therefore first has to be manually evaluated to uncover optimization potential and reasons for productivity losses.

With TULIP you can:

  • Capture data of processes by digitising them
  • Optimize processes based on data
  • Increase productivity through streamlined interaction on the whole shopfloor
  • Conserve knowledge of all employees through the no-code approach

Shop floor management through systematic data collection

Data Analysis: Automatic evaluation of your data for a real-time insight into your production processes.

All data collected with TULIP APPs from employees, sensors and machines can be automatically analyzed, displayed in dashboards or can be expressed in important KPIs. In this way you can automatically obtain real-time analyses of your production, recognise the reasons for productivity losses more quickly and can immediately take countermeasures that lead to continuous process improvement.

Full integration of IoT tools

IoT tools: Plug & Play connection of digital sensors and tools.

Digital sensors and tools can be easily connected to TULIP APPs. TULIP supports a variety of devices and standard protocols. For example, digital tools such as measuring equipment, digital Torque screwdrivers, pick-to-light or RFID can be linked to TULIP via Plug & Play.

Simple connection to existing IT systems

ERP / MES interfaces: Open interfaces to existing IT systems via SQL, REST APIs or http.

You can connect TULIP to your existing IT infrastructure (via SQL, REST API and http) such as your ERP, MES or CAQ system via common software interfaces in order to exchange data. TULIP is therefore not an isolated solution but an open system that seamlessly complements your system architecture. The interfaces allow you to push/pull data exchange with your existing applications to connect your shopfloor with the backend. Track and document work orders, inventories, parts lists, tool usage and more.

Machine monitoring with just a few clicks

Machine interfaces: Common interfaces for the acquisition of data from your machines and plants.

Connect your machines and devices with your TULIP APPs. Read machine data via OPA UA, MQTT or Modbus from your DMG MORI machines as well as your old and 3rd party machines. Record operation and set-up times and be actively notified in case of unplanned downtimes, in order to resolve any occurring downtimes more quickly.

NEW: Digital worker guidance with your TULIP APPs on the machine

Access to TULIP APPs directly on the machine with CELOS V6.

Create your individual APPs for your machines - without any programming knowledge.  Starting with the latest CELOS version, your APPs can even be viewed by your employees on your machine panel. This means that all relevant job information is available to your machine operators with a single click in the form of setup instructions, quality checklists, trainings or APPs for tool management.
