Vertical digitization

Every company aims to increase their efficiency and gain competitive advantages.

Digitized industrial systems have been one of the biggest drivers of these goals in recent years.

These solutions form the framework for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

In contrast to the Internet of Things (IoT), the Industrial Internet of Things focuses solely on industrial processes.

The IIoT enables important data to be recorded and deployed in real time, which then provides a basis for reducing costs in production and establishing new business models.

Sensors and controllers are the starting point for doing so. Continuous data processing from the sensor to the ERP system melds together the physical and digital worlds.

Without any time delays, systems autonomously report information about their statuses, any required maintenance and servicing, actual material consumption, and more.

GIB Shop Floor Integration then further processes this information within its context and automatically triggers follow-on processes in SAP ERP.

Exchanging information in real time minimizes disruptions to production and drastically increases throughput and production capacity.

Advantages at a glance

From sensors into SAP

A manufacturing company must ensure that a key bottleneck machine is available for production.

To do this, it is necessary to obtain and evaluate critical information on the condition of the machine.

The information is based on the continuous actual wear and used to determine the shop floor integration software.

The SFI solution is based on these near-real-time events from production to automatically initiate necessary follow-up activities, e.g. initiating maintenance measures in PM/EAM and ordering spare parts.
