Digitalisation leads to process optimisation as well as process innovation. Through tests and prototypes individual advantages can be recognised and knowledge can be anchored sustainably.
Digitalisation is an international megatrend in which so far only a few valid references are available. The implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions require not only knowledge in automation technology, in mechanical engineering or in computer science, but a mixture of all. In particular, the specification of interfaces or detailed concepts of digitised processes shifts into focus. In addition, digitalisation describes new paradigms, such as modularisation and integrated networking, which have to be established in the company. This requires special expertise that does not exist in every company.
Metroplan-Approach and methodology
Metroplan not only supports the selection and conception of industry 4.0 solutions, but accompanies with it expertise projects from the first idea to the final implementation:
- Coordination and moderation of workshops
- Project accompaniment and mentoring by experienced Industry 4.0 experts
- Detailed conception of the realisation (e.g. interface specifications and production layouts)
Through the support during the implementation Industry 4.0 knowledge will anchor in the company for long term. The support for the detailed conception complements the missing competence in individual fields of activity. The realisation of prototypes is an early evaluation of potentials as well as the first step towards a digital transformation.
