Industry 4.0 solution in practice at Gebrüder Weiss

Reference KSM Castings Bosch Software Innovations



The IT architecture had grown over 15 years and the EDI communication was spread across several EDI servers. This involved high efforts which were to be reduced with the introduction of an EAI standard software:

  • Connection of about 100 partners and 400 customers, exchange of highly heterogeneous message formats, i.e. record structures, EDIFACT, customer specific formats, XML and binary files
  • Connection to FTP, E-Mail, mailboxes (IBM, Eurolog, Telecom) and MQ-Series
  • Reduction of maintenance and evaluation efforts, easy tracing of data flows, increase in performance, introduction of central error handling



Within a proof of concept (POC) inubit BPM convinced thanks to its modern architecture, its modular construction and good user/role-concept. After a five day training, a core team of Gebrüder Weiss employees was able to conduct basic works independently:

  • Conversion of FlatFiles, XML processing, connection to database and workflow management, error detection and correction within the POC
  • Connection of individual applications, development of separate plug-ins for special tasks, definition of central data models, definition of a deployment process by the Gebrüder Weiss employees



Thanks to the implementation of the integration project all departments from overland transportation via air and sea freight up to storage, logistics and finances could be integrated:

  • Clear IT architecture which ensures a safe and quick data transfer
  • Reduced error rate and maintenance costs thanks to less interfaces and media breaks
