How industry-compatible and practice-proven solutions are implemented for the digital factory will be demonstrated using a number of scenarios. These include, along with the ERP standard solution, work management at work stations, flexible integration of production technology and equipment, as well as monitoring and visualisation of the manufacturing processes. Furthermore, besides work-flow based process control, the cross-system flexibilisation of the manufacturing processes as well as the flexible timing and integration of the transport systems will be presented. In addition, Just-in-Time/Just-in-Sequence provisioning of the material (e-Kanban) and material-flow control by warehouse management are applied.
In asset service management, functions for maintenance management, in particular the optimisation of order handling with Qualicision PSI software will be shown. The integration with machine-like OEM control systems serves as an example for a predictive maintenance solution on the basis of extended fuzzy logic and machine learning.
The AI software Deep Qualicision solution will be presented as an innovation at the fair. Deep Qualicision provides qualitative labelling of business process data, which automatically learns associations in the data between process parameters and KPIs and consequently reveals additional added-value opportunities. Based on this, AI solutions for automatic optimisation of business processes will be demonstrated that work as assistance systems and decision-making support systems and can be used either in planning or for real-time scenarios. The solutions are available in the AI toolkit Qualicision and Deep Qualicision as an AI software stack.
