Rule-based analysis of production data – manufacturing experts at the heart of Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 is making manufacturing increasingly smarter, more flexible, and more transparent.
The most significant role in this changing environment is played by people – they are the creators of the factory of the future.
How do you make the jump from manufacturing to smart manufacturing? Knowledge of workflows, processes, and solutions clearly lies with manufacturing experts. They are best qualified to identify the potential for optimizing output, quality, and costs.
The goal must be to identify which aspects of this knowledge can be automated and then to translate them directly into software. This gradually makes manufacturing smarter, providing optimum support to the people who work in production.
It is key that the software be tailored to manufacturing experts’ needs. The related requirements and resulting opportunities are the subject of this white paper.
