Clever zur Smart Factory

A perspective shift integrates IT, Shop floor and Business views

Transforming a factory into a Smart Factory means more than just implementing Industrial IoT use cases: Full-scale digitalization democratizes the individual layers of the automation pyramid and transforms them into a process-oriented structure. Discover exactly what this means and how you can pave the path to the smart factory for your company in this white paper.

Once upon a time: the automation pyramid

Traditional organizational structures are incompatible with IIoT projects

Automation often follows the automation pyramid approach. However, as technology advances, vulnerabilities in information transfer become apparent: There is a lack of consistent structures and connections between systems (such as an MES that should seamlessly links ERP and production systems).

The solution: a three-layer-architecture

Cross-system structures enable fast roll-outs and scalability

If a company integrates the three layers of business, IT and shop floor across processes and divisions, it can cope with the rapid dynamics of digitization. This agile structure enables fast and simple adaptation from PoC to roll-out and beyond.
