With more than 200 production sites and over 1000 different product lines and machines, Wienerberger and Pipelife supply a wide range of products within the building materials and construction industry.
These numerous production lines lead to many different machines and process control systems that house valuable production data. To centrally collect and provide this local data and ensure an optimized production process, an economical, industry-standard, and scalable solution was needed.
Wienerberger AG is the largest producer of solutions for brick masonry and ceramic roofing systems in Austria. The company operates six production sites for hollow bricks and three sites producing roof tiles in Austria. Pipelife Austria is the leading plastic pipe manufacturer in Austria and produces sustainable, high-quality, and innovative products and solutions for infrastructure, construction services, and irrigation.
By transferring the company's vision of "all relevant data available online all the time" and creating "Digital Twins", TietoEVRY supports Wienerberger & Pipelife with full digitalization power.
This allowed connections to hundreds of data points to be established, and thousands of signals per second to be transmitted to a central data hub in an Azure-based cloud environment. Azure functionalities are used to ingest, store, analyze and visualize the data streams. User group-specific access enables customized views. The advantage: different roles can work with different, yet specific information, relevant to them.
