Software platforms for Industry 4.0

Enter the world of Industry 4.0 to understand the essence of the Smart Factory and the potential of the fourth industrial revolution.

What is Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0 is a term introduced by the German government in 2011 to identify an industrial strategy that determines the creation of the so-called Smart Factory. This change has become necessary and crucial thanks to recent technological innovations such as cyberfisical systems, wireless communication, the Internet of Things (IoT or IIoT), 3D printing, cloud computing and robotics.

Techsol and Industry 4.0

In this context, the proposed software solutions, starting with the Manufacturing Execution System (MES), represent an indispensable step towards digitizing each company. MES is a computerized data collection system for managing and controlling a company's production functions. The main feature of a MES is the ability to synchronize enterprise management and production in order to bridge the gap between planning and controlling, by optimizing the use of production resources.

Through this tool, it is possible to react immediately to any production overheads, but also to know the progress of orders in real time, the machine status, material placement and factory performance.

"Today, to increase competitiveness is essential to become protagonists of the Industry 4.0"

What are the benefits for companies?

  • Greater speed (a reduction of time between the prototyping and the realization phase)
  • Real time production monitoring
  • Data usage, computing power and connectivity
  • Analysis: machines are able to perfect their yield by "learning" from collected and analyzed data
  • Man-machine interaction
  • Techsol and Industry 4.0

    Techsol works to measure the information and IT status of the company by comparing the verification of operations, organizational processes and IT systems with the client's business context, to define the intervention fields and the most suitable development tools, according to the parameters of Industry 4.0

    Investing in a project 4.0 it means to introduce technological and organizational changes aimed at maintaining a strong position in the market and increasing growth opportunities.
