Industry 4.0 has long been a viable concept. It comprises the interlocking of industrial production technologies with modern IT systems.
The focus is on communication between people, machines, products and IT systems along the entire value chain. The technological basis is the Internet of Things (IoT), which is the key to success in the increasingly networked world in many industries.
So the technologies are already available. Not only in logistics, development or service, but also in production. For companies it is therefore important not to lose touch and to increase efficiency through smart production facilities.
For a long time, IoT was only viewed from two sides: from the sensor or as a big picture of a digitization strategy designed on the drawing board. In practice, however, it has been shown that a different approach promises more success: IoT should always be thought of from the process. It is about the optimization and automation of work processes using modern IT solutions. It is important that the solution is modularly expandable and can be combined and connected with other systems and solutions. Such as with our open and innovative maintenance solution OPRA. This allows classic processes to be mapped, accessibility via mobile devices to be set up and at the same time a wide variety of use cases, such as predictive maintenance, to be implemented.
We subsume IoT under the term IIoT because we have the requirements of industrial companies in mind.
As an IT service provider, we have made it our daily business to implement the requirements of our customers. This has resulted in solutions and intelligent applications for all aspects of digital transformation:
The IIoT-Connector is a solution developed in-house to provide you with a simple, fast and cost-effective entry. This provides you with an entry-level solution that can be modularly expanded according to your requirements for immediate and efficient implementation, with variable service provision:
You can round this off with other solutions from our IIoT family:
… and thus enable various potential benefits:
With OPRA, the pharmaceutical manufacturer Engelhard meets the strict compliance regulations in the pharmaceutical sector. SAP user is Engelhard Arzneimittel GmbH & Co. KG from Niederdorfelden in Hesse has been a SAP user for some time, only the Plant Maintenance module has not been used so far. Instead, the company recorded working hours at the machines via its production system, while the maintenance processes for the packaging, filling and labelling machines were traditionally handled on paper.
