Digitalisation gives companies increasingly better ways of processing data from all areas of their order and production systems in real time and using it in production to increase both efficiency and flexibility. The enormous rise in the quantity of data and complexity in the networking of plant and company areas makes it necessary to develop products that make the flow of data easy to plan and manage – at production level, but also for the training and development of skilled workers. In parts of production that are intended to be digitally networked, components and network technologies have to be defined that are compatible with the relevant interfaces and result, overall, in a stable IT and production system, in other words that can ensure an actual increase in efficiency. Skilled workers from both areas, namely operating and optimising facilities and developing intelligent components, must be taught to develop a deep understanding of the structure and programming of digital facility networks for this purpose. The CP Factory learning and research platform provides higher education institutes and companies with access to the technology and applications of Industry 4.0. The platform demonstrates the production of tomorrow in a locally controlled intelligent network: Workpieces have their own production history and request their processing procedure from machines, whilst diagnostic, error and service messages are generated and communicated independently by the facility and thus set off other processes. The use of open, configurable systems and communications standards enables plant and automation technology to be seamlessly integrated with the process controls and job management system. Using master computers as a level of exchange between the order management system and the production facility is no longer essential. Double data storage and inconsistent data sets are thus a thing of the past, and in this way costs and time can be saved in the manufacture of customised products. The CP Factory was developed for flexible training in a wide range of technologies and subjects: facility networking, PLC programming, drive technology, sensor technology, safety technology, robotics, assembly, as well as value stream analysis and optimisation. For the research and teaching of Industry 4.0, the facility can be integrated with all open systems and communication standards such as OPC-UA. The learning factory is used worldwide by industrial companies, universities and technical colleges as a learning and research platform for production and automation technology.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promises to help maximize the connectivity of real-time operating data, automate predictive analytics and allow people to work collaboratively in the moment – it can bring incredible agility to decision making, improving company's bottom line. With iiOT by Honeywell, they help you better connect people, assets and processes to help digitally transform the business – more reliable assets, more efficient operations, and optimized performance across company's enterprise. All of Honeywell's ready-to-deploy IIoT technologies have cyber security built in, and Honeywell has designed solutions to help drive a step change in project execution by Honeywell experts with both IT and operations know-how.
NetApp is focused on how data plays a role in the Internet of Things (IoT). The collection points (sensors), data protection (edge to core), and data management (data center) are all critical value adds of IoT-savvy data storage systems today. The application of the IoT to everyday life and business causes an overwhelming amount of complexity for data management. The ‘real time’ needs of it are important, which makes NetApp well positioned in this conversation today with decades of experience helping customers manage their data as efficiently and effectively as possible.
The company offers various IT products, including peripherals, systems, software, networking, and others. Its peripheral products comprise printers, scanners, displays, projectors, monitors, panels, mass storage, and tape;
systems products include servers, desktops, portable personal computers, and personal digital assistants; and software products consist of business application software, operating system software, entertainment software, middleware, developer software tools, security software, and storage software.
