Factory integration – Make your production location part of a global network
Connect all your plants and locations.
You are finally able to integrate your production resources into your company’s or customers’ value chains. Your production data becomes available anywhere via modern and specially secured IT infrastructures. Your lines and locations become transparent, and you can be virtually everywhere at the same time.
At the same time, you can deploy experts in more than one location and therefore much more efficiently by using remote systems, mobile devices and data glasses. The same applies to the technical support of equipment suppliers. Remote support architectures allow their technicians to access your equipment for diagnostics as well as for predictive and preventive maintenance.
Indicators of weaknesses in factory integration
- Lines, shop floor areas, locations and departments are not electronically linked
- No external access to data
- Manual exchange of data (via reports, e-mail attachments, etc.)
- Employees use unsafe consumer tools as makeshift communication solutions (data transfer, chat, collaboration tools, etc.)
- No process interconnectivity for real-time control, tracking and interlocking
