Zentrale Visualisierung von Prozess-Istwerten, Alarmen & Events, Qualitätsdaten
Central visualization of actual process values, alarms and events, quality data

Efficient communication

  • Improved communication: smooth and effective exchange of information among the shifts, departments, auditors, providers and customers
    • Interdepartmental discussion based on facts and figures
    • Early information for maintenance
    • Support for customer audits (minimized time effort)
    • Information at the touch of a button
    • High resource commitment of persons in higher positions is no longer necessary

Towards the Fourth Age of Industrial Revolution - accompanied by the iMes Solutions GmbH

The digitization of manufacturing processes - Industry 4.0 - places new demands on man - machine - environment.

A modern and digital production requires:

  • an intelligent information network
  • information that is available at any time - correct, without any ambiguity and needs-based
  • networking among man - machine - object - system

There are a variety of Industry 4.0 options in the production area:

  • digitization (paperless working)
  • predictive maintenance
  • prospective production
  • AI - artificial intelligence: machine learning, pattern recognition
  • transparency of plants and production due to OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness)
