Start with your industry 4.0 project
With the Starter Kit, you can find out almost immediately how ready your production facility is for Industry 4.0. The combination of expert knowledge, software, and hardware provides you with a simple and cost-efficient way of networking your machinery and systems. You can then use the new information you gain to improve your production processes and product quality.
Fast, flexible connection of machines and data evaluation
The IoT Gateway makes it easy to connect to Industry 4.0 environments without intervening in the automation logic. The precisely coordinated combination of control hardware and software for implementing IT applications collects sensor and process data and transmits it to the Production Performance Manager in near real-time.
The Production Performance Manager is a production information and evaluation system. It collects production and machine data, combines it to produce a visual representation, and communicates specific events to defined production workers. Using the software solution, employees can intervene before critical situations possibly leading to system downtime arise.
Elements of the Starter Kit: Production Performance Manager and IoT Gateway
We will work with you to develop an initial custom use case with the Production Performance Manager and IoT Gateway.
As with the Production Performance Starter Kit, we will integrate the relevant machinery into the software solution, and identify potential for optimization so as to improve your production. Additionally, we will provide you with the IoT Gateway hardware element in order to ensure a seamless collection and monitoring of data. We will support you in the installation of the hardware and software at a commonly defined machine. You will also learn how to integrate, digitally visualize, and optimize more production machinery, systems, and lines yourself.
