Smart Factory

Networking and digitalization in production & logistics.

Industry 4.0

Networking of machines and plants

We understand Industry 4.0 as the holistic networking of machines and plants along the value chain. Physical and virtual systems are coupled in a targeted manner, and data exchange between people and machines is enabled in an intuitive way. This enables us to identify potential for our customers along the value stream from suppliers to customer service.

Smart Factory – the intelligent factory

Today’s production systems must be anticipatory, agile, and adaptive. We systematically identify your potentials, evaluate their added value and support you pragmatically in the implementation of a Smart Factory.

How can I4.0 support my company?

Even if networking is clear as the core idea of Industry 4.0, the resulting potential and business opportunities are far more diverse:

  • Industry 4.0 enables increased productivity and improved speed to market through virtual testing prior to production
  • Thanks to the networking of the production plants, proactive maintenance procedures can be carried out thanks to “predictive maintenance” and impairments to the operational processes can be reduced.
  • Real-time condition monitoring and remote control of production processes are enabled. This in the extreme case there is the chance of customer integration into the direct company processes
  • The networking of production plants and logistics systems provides information that increases the quality of data analytics and process mining, and thus also the informative value of business intelligence tools.

Industry 4.0 Definition

What do we mean by I 4.0

We understand the term Industry 4.0 to mean the intelligent networking of machines and processes in industry with the help of information and communication technology. The networking of people, machines and things in physical and virtual areas ideally happens in real time. This is necessary in order to be able to adapt quickly to the permanently shortening innovation and product cycles.
