Industry 4.0 means digitization.
To remain competitive in the market, a company has to continuously increase its productivity. Data volumes are growing rapidly. A successful, optimized data handling has become indispensable for companies as part of their success.
In order to meet business demands adequately, data management has become crucial for companies. Difficulties frequently occur when handling large amounts of data.
Here, a transparent information management system provides a solution and supports the creating, maintenance and phasing out of data. The data management system also has to be firmly established in the company organization, with roles and responsibilities clearly assigned.
When implementing a data management system, three areas must be covered: planning and control, quality management, and the organization with personnel assignment.
Importing and exporting between different systems can cause errors and degrade the quality of data. Manual, uncoordinated data communication provokes that not every involved person receives the relevant information in the right time. The result: project teams cannot discover problems in time.
Digital consistency – providing all employees with the latest data in real-time – needs to be created to ensure a structured communication. This spans customer, offer, engineering, production, testing and acceptance and back to the customer. Such a cross-system consistency of digital data saves time, increases flexibility and reduces costs.
Industry 4.0 also means automation – on the shop floor.
