The fourth industrial revolution utilizes data to the fullest. Change industrial operations from tedious to transformational with machine intelligence, the industrial internet of things, cloud computing and automation.
Industry has to respond to changes in the business environment faster than ever. Start with integrating and redesigning your processes, operations and automation to make your business smarter, safer and more sustainable. Then optimize your value chain and the use of your resources with next-generation technologies. We cover all key operations on your roadmap towards the fourth industrial revolution.
Asset Performance Management
Healthy assets are the foundation of a healthy business. Get the most out of your industrial machinery with the Industrial Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, Big Data and predictive analytics.Read more Read more
Supply Chain Planning
Supply Chain Planning, also called Master Planning, lets you orchestrate the entire supply chain with predictions of future requirements to balance supply and demand.Read more Read more
Advanced Planning and Scheduling
APS is the pacemaker of a factory or manufacturing facility. With it, raw materials and production capacity can be allocated optimally to meet demand. It is the best way to make your processes leaner.Read more Read more
The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is the cockpit from which all the activities on the factory floor can be controlled and monitored.Read more Read more
A warehouse management system (WMS) is software designed to support and control all activities in the warehouse from the receiving of material, putaway and stock keeping to efficient picking, packing and delivery.Read more Read more
Industry 4.0 connects processes, people and technology into one intelligent unit. It is founded on machine intelligence, smart operations and a well-designed supply chain, which delivers products quickly to the end-customer, with minimal waste, always thinking ahead. Here is an overview of benefits you can expect during your journey.
Information sharing and partial optimization elimination leads to enhanced supply chain performance.
The work guidelines and standardized work allow people to know what they have to do and when. Managing is made much less demanding.
Measure and control use of utilities sustainably with efficient data collection and dynamic reporting.
Fewer man-hours are needed with standardized processes and people can concentrate on creating value.
Digitalizing traditional paper-based operations and removing waste from warehouse operations and production result in improved productivity.
Gain real-time visibility into production processes from production planning to actual execution and free up time for future development.
When productivity is increased, it saves money. This money can be invested in product development to create innovative and higher quality products.
Control and decrease required inventories through increased visibility into actual material consumptions, inventory levels and movements.
With just-in-time planning you need fewer products in your inventory. A smaller inventory means less space means fewer costs.
Expand your productivity with line balancing that will guarantee that your resources are not overburdened.
Visualize the health of your equipment and assets by capturing time series equipment and sensor data automatically.
By incorporating a just-in-time philosophy into your supply network you can make faster deliveries to the customer and decrease your costs too.
Wider control of production though MES provides accurate data from every step of the process. This again results in reduced production costs.
Eliminate repetitive work with automation, embrace human nature and satisfy employees with more innovative and interesting jobs.
Shorter lead times and more speed through the automation of information flow and real-time control of production and the warehouse.
Reduce production lead times with rapid responses to changes in demand by efficiently allocating assets and planning production effectively.
Simulation and optimization ensure that in rapidly changing circumstances you can be a step ahead and find the best possible outcome beforehand.
Smart Manufacturing provides a common toolset for collective innovation between people and sites utilizing similar technologies.
Your plant can be set up so that you can manage with a glance. Any irregularities will emerge and be recognized as issues.
