Smart Factory Elements - New models for innovative manufacturing IT

With the "Smart Factory Elements" MPDV presents a new model for the innovative production IT at the Hannover Messe 2019. Using five elements, manufacturing companies can now formulate their requirements in a truly modern way.

Control loop of the modern production IT
The "Smart Factory Elements" model envisages the following control loop: ´First of all, production is planned (Planning & scheduling) based on specifications from different sources. Next, the planning is integrated or performed (Execution). The data collected is analyzed (Analytics) in order to make predictions which, together with other findings, can then be included in planning. The fifth element, the Industrial Internet of Things supports this cycle by collecting and providing all sorts of data.
A large part of these tasks can be perfectly mapped with a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) such as HYDRA - for the rest of the tasks, new products will gradually come onto the market.
