Computer Science and Engineering (BSc)
Abstract
The technology in the industry has grown substantially over the years, particularly in the wireless area. Today's smartphones and other devices that connect to a wireless network, has the opportunity to communicate with other devices via the TCP / IP protocol. This places significant demands from the companies in the industry, which believes that there is opportunity to improve productivity in the company.
This report describes how an Android application was developed as a bachelor thesis at Tetra Pak AB in Lund. The main goal for the project is to build up an information structure between the beverage processing line automation system and a portable device like iPhone, iPad or Android.
The work began with a literature search to find out... (More)

This report describes how an Android application was developed as a bachelor thesis at Tetra Pak AB in Lund. The main goal for the project is to build up an information structure between the beverage processing line automation system and a portable device like iPhone, iPad or Android.
The work began with a literature search to find out if a mobile platform today has the ability to monitor production and also control machines through communication between two different operating systems such as Microsoft and Android. We have chosen to use the Android when, comparisons, proved to be the most appropriate environment to meet most of the requirements.
The application is supposed to act as a user interface on a portable device which is connected to Tetra Pak's internal network and the process line. The application's functionality consists of four points: Quality Assurance, Manual addition, Maintenance and Information Overview.
The automation system consists of a PLC from Rockwell, HMI Wonderware InTouch and an SQL database.
The final product was named Tetroid. It contains two of the four functions which is mentioned above, Manual addition and Information Overview. (Less)
