Industry 4.0 is driven and enabled by networking the Internet and hence using real-time data for better decision. At the very core Industry 4.0 includes the partial transfer of autonomous decisions to “local intelligence”: IoT devices and Machines
As a result, the target of a zero-error rate is now within reach. Machine failures also become a thing of the past, for the data that is available allows a preventive maintenance strategy and planning that avoids unplanned and unpredictable downtimes. Production can be run around the clock at maximum capacity. The “factory of the future” secures a competitive advantage for itself as a result of quicker production cycles, higher throughput with a reduced inventory and lower costs.
Customised solutions are designed and implemented allowing SMEs to capture data directly from machines. This greatly increase data accuracy and allow creation of real-time reporting enhancing speed of decision taking
