SmartGen Lean丨After ten years of exploration, control cabinet production has a new development

I still remember the expectation of the SmartGener when SmartGen officially introduced the “Lean Consulting Project” for the first time at the beginning of 2011; Looking back in 2022, SmartGen has taken every step steadily and solidly from lean production to intelligent manufacturing.

Lean Production

For more than ten years, SmartGen has made unremitting efforts and continuous improvement, and has achieved a qualitative improvement in lean operation management. Especially in lean production, the production line layout and production process have been continuously optimized through value stream analysis. The product quality has been continuously improved, and the production efficiency and output value per unit area have also reached another record high through various lean management tools such as on-site 5S, 5M1E, Kanban management, JIT, TPM, TQM, a flow, a combination of push and pull.

Control cabinet production is a typical order production mode. In order to respond quickly to the delivery time, we continuously optimize the flexible production mode, and manage products, users, and suppliers by classification and itemization. Under the condition of the same staffing, we have adapted to the fluctuation of orders. The delivery time of land-based control cabinet has basically achieved T+2 and T+5.

Automation and Informatization

The production automation rate has always been a KPI that has attracted more attention in SmartGen. Over the past few years, various automatic production lines have been put into use. Among them, the self-developed unit-type assembly line, automatic test table, dry air tightness test table and other equipment have not only greatly improved the production efficiency, but also effectively controlled the test accuracy.

With the help of CRM, ERP, PLM, MES, ISP (self-developed by SmartGen), APS, supplier Andon and other information systems, the timeliness and transparency of the supply chain management have been improved; Using the data center to open up information flow and material flow, assist managers to make scientific and efficient decisions, and ensure high-standard delivery of orders.

In the future, SmartGen will continue to support flexible and intelligent manufacturing with automation and informatization, explore intelligent decision with big data, promote the company’s high-quality development pace, and create greater value for partners!

SmartGen | Cause & Solution for Controller Start Failure

Controller Start Failure Analysis:

In many cases, when the user is starting engine, genset cannot start or start unsuccessfully. It is difficult to find problems due to users do not understand genset running principle and mechanical structure. This article gives a list of faults caused by starting problems in genset using.
Genset start failure is basically caused by the following ways:Electrical circuit、Mechanical structure、Controller parameter configuration.

Electrical Circuit

When electrical circuits or components have faults, starter may not work in genset starting, thus resulting in genset start failure.When troubleshooting electrical problems, you should first confirm that controller or start signal outputs correctly, then confirm whether the operation status of each relay or contactor and electrical circuit is normal according to electrical drawing or actual electrical wiring.

Mechanical Structure

Start failure cause by mechanical problems with the starter section may result in idling or gear collision. When starter is idling, the flywheel teeth of engine may be damaged. The starter gears do not engage the engine flywheel teeth, causing the starter to idle. In this case, engine flywheel teeth plate needs to be replaced and repaired.

When gear collision occurs, it is because the starter gear is engaged the flywheel teeth, so it is unable to start. In this case, you can try to start engine again. If it cannot start, then check starter and engine flywheel teeth plate.

Controller Parameter Configuration

When controller is used for start and stop control of genset, it can control starter running. The controller controls starter based on engine speed, oil pressure and genset frequency. When genset is starting, if controller measured data reaches certain condition, controller will control starter to stop.

Controller can set engine speed, oil pressure, gen frequency in starting, when one of them reaches set value, controller will consider that genset starts successfully and stop the starter, then genset will enter running status. When parameter setting or measured data has problem, control abnormal situation will appear, thus causing genset running fault.
The common fault phenomenon is that after pressing start key, genset has no action, controller displays “Genset Running”, then gen underfrequency, undervoltage or low oil pressure alarm will occur. A more common phenomenon is that when oil pressure is set in start conditions, if oil pressure value is greater than start success value in stopping, controller will assume that genset has started successfully in starting and enter running period. When it runs to monitor alarms, because genset is not really running, controller cannot detect normal voltage, frequency, oil pressure and speed, and will issue alarm after judging.

When this condition appears, we need to check controller parameter display and parameter setting about start, making related parameter in rational setting range.

SmartGen Spirit丨The Guardian of Quality

On May 14, 2022, the electronic workshop of SmartGen was busy as usual.

At 9 o’clock, the quality center received feedback: a product was sporadically burned out during the debugging process. The reason was not yet clear, and we needed to check and analyze it as soon as possible!

After the quality personnel and process personnel arrived at the production site for the first time, they immediately checked the 4M1E on the site, but the abnormal reasons could not be locked. The on-site engineer immediately contacted the technical personnel and R&D personnel to check the problem at the site. A five-person research team was quickly formed to devote themselves to the research and analysis of failed products.

Finally, the reason for the abnormality was locked around 7 o’clock in the evening. It was because of improper assembly process that caused a certain device to be stressed during assembly, and eventually the device was damaged due to the uncertainty of force!

After a day of check, everyone was a little tired, but you could still see the sense of achievement that came from the heart after finding the true cause from everyone’s smiling faces!

However, what they completely ignored was that today was a day off, a day when they could relax……


After the problem was locked, the next step was to optimize the product process. After careful consideration by technical, R&D, process, and quality personnel, the product optimization plan had been initially determined, but the implementation of the plan still required test results and data to verify its reliability. While everyone was conducting experiments in an orderly manner, news came from the supply chain that the customer wanted the company to send out the products on the morning of May 19!

This time requirement had undoubtedly tightened the nerve strings of the five-person research team. According to the schedule of the test, the fastest completion would be on the afternoon of May 19, which couldn’t meet the delivery date. The delivery time must be guaranteed, but the reliability of quality should not be sloppy. Everyone was in a dilemma again……

The technical center made a decisive decision: the delivery time must be met, and the quality must be guaranteed! They immediately arranged the test personnel to carry out the verification of all test items overnight!

That night, when we were all asleep, only the lights in the laboratory were still on, the equipment was still roaring, and the testers were still carefully recording the test data.

The shimmer flashed into the darkness, that was the determination of SmartGeners to stick to the quality, and that was the confidence of SmartGeners’ commitment to the customers.


Finally, the testers completed all the test items at 5:00 am on May 19, and the quality engineer also arrived at the company at 7:00 am to inspect the products after testing. It has been verified that the optimized process met the product standard requirements. On the morning of May 19, the product was sent out successfully!

Continuous improvement, teamwork creates value. That is the determination of SmartGeners to stick to the quality. From product design to delivery to customers, the quality assurance team is like a ship that has gone through storms but still firmly pursues perfection. On this ship, there are you, me, and the quality bottom line that we guard together, which will surely help us reach the other side of perfect quality!
