What challenges do you currently see in the factory environment?
The factory of the future is characterized by automated and flexible manufacturing processes, data-driven processes and networked, modular plants. However, if the services related to manufacturing are not just as Industry 4.0 capable as production, then optimization potential will remain untapped. That’s why we see the factory as a system in which manufacturing and services go hand in hand. We support factories in their transformation – toward new drive concepts, increasing connectivity to Industry 4.0, zero-emission factories and digitization in production.
How can digitization help?
Digitization plays a crucial role in the factory of the future. For our customers’ smart factories, we rely on extensive experience in the production environment, our collaborative platform Leadec.os and our own IoT Home Cloud, where machine data is captured and analyzed. This enables end-to-end integration from the shop floor with its equipment to the executed service order – from factory to service.
