Industrie 4.0 in production and business processes


Industrie 4.0 is the central enabler for agility in all business processes. Industrie 4.0 focuses on the possibilities for recording, storing, analyzing and exploiting data. On the basis of lean processes and experienced lean-methods, the implementation of an individual industrie 4.0 infrastructure enables the creation and evaluation of the necessary data base to broaden the knowledge in the company. As a result, it becomes possible to systematically learn from the companies own product and production data, thus increasing the predictability and decision-making capacity. The employee as a key success factor is enabled to make better decisions faster. By reducing latencies starting with the analysis up to the definition of the measures, the implementation speed can be drastically increased.

Together with the Demonstration factory Aachen (DFA), we offer a real production environment at 1600m², in which you can experience "Industrie 4.0 live" using different usecases. We will be pleased to discuss with you the benefits of Industry 4.0 in your company.

Our consulting approach is based on three steps: Understanding, adapting and implementing. It is important for us to illuminate the topic of Industrie 4.0 from a benefits perspective and to individually analyze exactly in which areas of your business Industrie 4.0 solutions are suitable. Each and every Industrie 4.0 measure should help achieve the corporate objectives.

The first step is all about creating a common understanding of Industrie 4.0. To achieve this, we offer seminars and trainings at our demonstration factory. In addition, we regularly carry out studies that identify best practice solutions and provide a basis for the mutual exchange of experience.

In the second step we generate an Industrie 4.0 vision with you. The focus lies on attaining the best possible support of the corporate strategy with Industrie 4.0 solutions. Depending on the department that is being examined, it is advisable to carry out an industrial 4.0-audit in which the processes are examined in terms of their level of Industrie 4.0-maturity. The audit point out areas of activity, which are then converted into a road map. First measures are implemented in the third step. The implementation of pilot projects help the company’s internal communication of the topic of Industrie 4.0 and promote the involvement of the employees.

Our recommendation: Start now and use the potential of Industrie 4.0 for your business!
