Digital Transformation

In our capacity as a full service provider, with our 360° totaldigital we provide you with all you need for the transformation of your supply chain, production, maintenance and service.

Generate a fluid treasure trove of data from various data streams with data engineering

An increasing amount of data is created within your company; and that data contains strategic knowledge, a key to your company’s success. We use data engineering to open up all relevant data sources for you and direct the data flow in the right direction. For this to happen the data has to be of the right quality; it should be retrievable and processable.

Use our support to analyse, structure, clean up or enrich your data streams, which can then be optimally used for data science projects or deep learning. Get additional recourse to our wealth of experience in relation to technology selection and the required database architecture.

Use data science for faster digital transformation with existing data and systems

Nowadays machines store large amounts of sensor data. Conventional methods of data processing are not able to structure this information effectively. With data science, your company will quickly exploit the full potential of digitisation. We analyse different data amounts and structures. The spectrum of analysis methods includes statistics as well as machine learning methods, including deep learning.

Downtime and wear firmly under control with digital processes

With digitalised and networked processes in production tailored to your company, you have downtime as well as system and component wear precisely under control.

With a suitable maintenance strategy, the right maintenance concept and the design and introduction of appropriate productive and administrative processes, we ensure that your plant runs as expected.

Customised to meet your needs: materials management, logistics and supplier management are geared towards supplying your plant – fully in line with your requirements and cost-efficiently.

Significant productivity advantages through end-to-end assistance systems

Digital twins not only significantly increase efficiency by eliminating the need for time-consuming searches or manual data entry; they also avoid latitude and errors in the interpretation of documents and consequently also significantly increase the quality of products or processes.

Process digitisation and process assistance through smart assistance systems for structured digitisation of manual processes or partial automation in combination with intelligent tools, such as measuring devices, industrial machines, indoor navigation systems, barcode scanners, QR code recognition, laser scanners and many more.

Assistance systems do not simply extract data from design, repair and assembly instructions, HR documents, databases and other data sources; they also interpret and understand them (automated)!

Employees are therefore provided with the respective process in 3D via an app on a tablet or smartphone or via data or augmented reality glasses, depending on the context. If required, a fast real-time search can be integrated, allowing access to all information on the current work process.

In the relevant application, the user triggers the automated, downstream documentation of the work results simply by selecting or confirming contents.

In production, this even allows automatic detection of defects in components. Lesions can be imaged with additional information using data glasses and the automated analysis is made available via laser scanners.

Let us advise you in detail about the various possibilities!
