Industry 4.0 - Smart Manufacturing

OPTIMIZE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

LEARN MORE

Smart Manufacturing scenarios are obtained through the optimization of manufacturing processes from concept generation to production and product transaction.

To achieve smart manufacturing, several technological components are leveraged with the objective to create a high level of integration between machines and information systems. Data is collected through sensors, stored in the cloud, and crunched so quickly that the delegation of decisions can be made at a near machine level - a term which has become known as "edge-computing".

Techedge helps its customers achieve true Smart Manufacturing scenarios leveraging traditional technologies like Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and supplier platforms, and merging these systems and data with cutting edge advancements like Cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), Analytics, Manufacturing Intelligence

CREATE YOUR SMART FACTORY

Your journey to Smart Manufacturing

The creation of the production schedule starts from the crossover between the customer's requirements and in-house production capacities. If we have visibility of manufacturing cycle times, the state of health of the machines or even energy consumption, we can sequence this planning to produce an impact on the P&L of the company.

In addition, if we achieve greater availability of the machines, we can allow ourselves to reduce the coverage of stock.

Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is an information system that connects, monitors and controls complex manufacturing systems and the data flows to and from the factory shop floor. The overall goal of MES is to make certain that manufacturing operations are effectively executed, improves production output and gathers in real-time or near-real-time all the data about the complete production lifecycle.

Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) / Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) are critical for Smart Digital Transformation. They provide the basis for direct execution of production orders and a dynamic reaction to situations that can change orders, machine status, quality controls, etc., for a self-organized factory. They are one of the main actors of the “Closed Loop” amongst the company’s ERP systems and the customers’ need and are based on the four pillars of the ISA-95 model: production, quality, warehouse and maintenance.

Our Manufacturing solutions enables your company to integrate and embed intelligence in manufacturing processes facilitating Industry 4.0 principles with one source of real-time information. They provide the data required for an optimal coordination of planning and execution processes, covering all aspects of the manufacturing cycle from planning to shop floor and beyond.

One of the most differential point about Techedge approach is to leverage the necessary technology for the implementation of a MES solution that allows us to develop more innovative use cases that add value to the business with little additional investment.

SAP Manufacturing Execution (SAP ME) is a complete, configurable MES system for discrete manufacturing which enables you to manage and control manufacturing and production operations.

SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) is the proven solution for the process industry. In addition to being able to monitor production in near real-time, it offers extensive data analysis tools. Data from a wide range of systems can be integrated, combined with data from business systems and necessary actions can be executed automatically or manually.

SAP Plant Connectivity (SAP PCo) enables data transfer between production level with SAP Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and SAP ERP.
 

Manufacturing innovation has an impact in every single aspect of the manufacturing process, starting from R&D and design, to the production itself, the supply chain and logistics management through to sales and even on finished product lifecycle management. These manufacturing innovations will shape new highly intelligent, information-driven factories that can respond rapidly to change and deliver entirely new customized smart products and services.

The factory needs to become digital and “smart”. New technologies together with innovative business models offer manufacturers a wide range of new opportunities to enhance their value proposition, particularly for the small and medium sized enterprises.

Industry 4.0 is the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and cloud computing to create “smart factories”.

Connect Manufacturing with core business processes to increase business agility in the following scenarios:

  • Shop Floor to Top Floor
  • Machine to Machine
  • e-commerce Integration
  • Machine / Operations Cloud

Digitization of your manufacturing processes allows you to increase manufacturing efficiency and agility and leverage the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Furthermore, Techedge Manufacturing Solutions ensure comprehensive transparency at the component and material level at all times.

Some of our key solutions are based on SAP Digital Manufacturing Insights (DMI), that is a centralized, cloud-based, data-driven Manufacturing Performance Management solution that seamlessly integrates with the SAP HANA Cloud Platform. It supplies standardized key performance indicators (KPIs) for standardized KPI calculation in all production plants.

Track & Trace: making products traceable throughout the entire production process supports our customers not only in meeting legal requirements, but also provides fast and precise cause and impact analysis.

We implement solutions for:

  • in-process tracking of serial numbers and lots
  • continuous background recording
  • simultaneous creation of a log record / as-built history, with minimal manual effort.

A digital production traceability provides many advantages for product quality improvements and reduction of production costs.
