Data-driven Factory Management - Production planning dynamically and in real-time

What if the entire factory was controlled dynamically and in real time instead of constantly having to react to changes with a rigid production plan? If, e.g., a production order is only started when the material is actually on site? Or parts are ordered automatically and consumption-based? 

Generating added value in the Industrial IoT

How can you benefit from digitalization to create a real competitive edge for your company? 

 

Digital concepts serve for numerous applications in industrial companies – ranging from the conversion of manual processes to IT-supported approaches, to the integration of suppliers and customers into value adding networks. Certain ideas just focus on a one-to-one digitalization of existing procedures, but now there are also completely new approaches previously beyond imagination. 

 

Innovative digital procedures enable you to take the quality of your products and processes to an all-new level.

The technologies and concepts deployed have one thing in common: They not only address individual use cases, but also suit the needs of various applications. This reduces the costs of individual concepts while providing a rapid Return on Invest (RoI) for your company. Because the following still applies to Industrie 4.0 and digitalization too: What matters is not the visible investment in the form of machines, robots or Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) – but the return achieved in the end.

Transparency in all corporate processes is the basis of every digitalization solution. Data access based on powerful, flexible and future-proof communication architecture – Digital Connectivity – is an essential factor for the Factory of the Future.
