Even after all these years, the label "Made in Germany" still has great significance and is tied to high standards. The product quality and the spirit of innovation, which characterize Germany as an industrial or innovative country, must be maintained. Therefore, it is necessary for companies to follow the path of digital transformation in order to remain competitive and sustainable in global competition - the fourth industrial revolution is both a challenge and an opportunity.
Data-based control, managing, analysis and optimization of production processes require a systematic data collection in order to create a data basis that serves as the basis. Machine- and operating data, energy- and process data, key indicators from detailed scheduling, equipment management and personnel planning provide information about the entire in-house processes. Bottlenecks and optimization potentials can be identified - the data is available as Big Data Analysis centrally within a Manufacturing Execution System in real time and location-independent. Simulation programs enable production-related prioritization that leads to optimized production management.
Software solutions for effective decisions
A professional MES solution provides you with the data foundation that you use as the basis for operational decisions to streamline and optimize production. With ever-increasing complexity of production and logistics processes, you keep an overview and can act quickly and flexibly at any time. A Smart-Factory-oriented Manufacturing Execution System typically includes the following features:
- The networking of machines, sensors and devices via internet of things enables direct and full communication with people.
- The digitalization of all processes ensures information transparency and a virtual image of production and logistics - detailed analyses and simulations become possible.
- Computer- and data-based assistance systems collect and visualize all operational data as well as information and support people in their decisions when controlling processes.
- Autonomous systems make their own decisions and relieve people of routine activities - in the event of malfunctions or in special cases, warning messages are sent and machines are stopped in emergencies.
Smart Factory aims to digitalize the processes in order to enable a paperless and directly networked operation and to relieve the dispositive level of routine activities. The seal of approval "Made in Germany" should retain its appeal.
