Industry 4.0 Solutions: Can the Production Process be More Efficient, Seamless and Economical?

People, machines, processes – in addition to raw materials, these are the three things a company needs in order to produce. But production will be efficient (and the company will be successful) only if the capacities of man and machine are optimally utilized (which does not mean overworking either of them!). Optimization on paper, or even in Excel, is only possible up to a certain (not too sophisticated) level.

Industry 4.0 solutions

If a decision maker really wants to see all aspects of the operation of the plant under his or her care (including production, time and capacity planning, planned maintenance of machinery, various manufacturing and business processes, as well as sales), he or she needs data. Data that is digitally (or automatically) captured, centrally stored and accessible to all stakeholders in an easy and meaningful format. And this data needs to be processed in systems that can perform some aspect of this optimization. This is where the achievements of industrial digitalization, the so-called Industry 4.0 solutions, come into play.
