Unlocking the Power of Business Rules in Manufacturing

The webcast demonstrates best practices of how to quickly and effectively unleash the power of a rule-based software in manufacturing facilities.

Industry 4.0: We bring internet technology into your production


Many areas of our lives have already been changed by the Internet of Things, and industry is no exception. By blending the real and the virtual worlds of production via the internet, the IoT makes it possible to connect all parts of the production process: machines, products, systems, and people.
This means that machines and products can communicate so they can manage themselves and each other.

Software-based system and service platforms will play a major role in tomorrow’s manufacturing; they are the only way to bring connectivity, including data analysis, to machines and workpieces in production.

With its production and logistics platform, Bosch provides you with a solid foundation for installing and operating your Industry 4.0 solutions.

Our software solutions for connected manufacturing and logistics gather, visualize, analyze, and monitor machine, process, and sensor data. They then translate this data into useful information that serves as a source for their rule- and process-based actions. The transparency this creates allows you to determine precisely where to optimize production and logistics processes along the entire value chain.

For example, quality monitoring of transport units reduces waste, and detecting machine faults early on makes it possible to schedule maintenance without shutting down the line.

Our solutions support manufacturers and users alike, helping them achieve competitive advantages in production and logistics.


Our solution portfolio

Create transparency. Increase productivity. Reduce costs.

Manufacturing Analytics Manufacturing Analytics tools & services Manufacturing Analytics tools & services

Manufacturing Analytics tools & services

With our Manufacturing Analytics tools & services, we assist production experts in extracting valuable insights from existing production data. This contributes significantly to the resolution of prevailing problems, in addition to bolstering continuous improvement efforts, and thereby promoting sustainable competitive capability.

Production Performance Manager Production Performance Manager Production Performance Manager

Production Performance Manager

The Production Performance Manager provides a snapshot of the current status of individual machines, and of the production system as a whole. Response times are shortened, tasks are clearly allocated, and information is made permanently accessible. The continuous improvement process is optimally supported through the new availability of data and direct feedback.

Process Quality Manager Process Quality Manager Process Quality Manager

Process Quality Manager

The Process Quality Manager visualizes, monitors, and documents process data in real time, automatically detects process deviations and trends, and helps experts optimize production processes directly and on an ongoing basis. It is instrumental in achieving zero defects, transparency in production, and the best quality production output.

Production Rules Configurator Production Rules Configurator Production Rules Configurator

Production Rules Configurator

Based on graphically modeled rules, this software monitors compliance with the parameters established for the production process. The system detects any deviations and notifies the worker in charge directly. Production data from existing systems, such as MES (manufacturing execution system), provides the basis for rule-based analysis.

Remote Service Manager Remote Service Manager Remote Service Manager

Remote Service Manager

Disruptions have to be resolved rapidly, since unplanned equipment and plant downtime can quickly become costly. With the Remote Service Manager, you can offer your customers the service they need. A secure remote connection allows service technicians to complete commissioning, diagnostic, and maintenance work much more quickly and efficiently than before.

Predictive Maintenance Predictive Maintenance Predictive Maintenance

Predictive Maintenance

Our solution for predictive maintenance opens up completely new possibilities for companies. For example, it uses sensor technology to record a machine’s condition and automatically checks for patterns that indicate a possible malfunction. This allows companies to avert potential failures before they happen by planning and taking corrective action at the right point.
