Are you ready for Industry 4.0?

Your industry is growing more complex by the day. You are expected to constantly improve plant efficiency, despite the fact that:
  • Raw material and component costs are rising in traditionally low-cost production markets
  • Demands for additional customization and reduced lead times are increasing
  • Requirements are constantly changing
  • Order sizes are shrinking
  • Margins are thinner
  • Competition is rising and increased pressure to adapt is jeopardizing quality and uptime
  • Shop floor data from equipment and automation systems are growing exponentially

  • To thrive in the Industry 4.0 era, it is critical for manufacturers to unlock the potential of legacy, real-time and unstructured data to make daily decisions that balance quality and throughput. With the average manufacturing site running on over one hundred software applications, it is a tremendous challenge to make that data accessible and actionable.
