International Center for Networked, Adaptive Production

Membership in the Community of the International Center for Networked, Adaptive Production

Many of today’s future-oriented businesses are still searching for competent partners and service providers who are sufficiently familiar with the requirements and specifications of Industrie 4.0 to help them on their way into a sustainable future.

Is it enough to provide all their machines and items of equipment with Internet technology, to establish process parameters and to transmit status messages?

Or should they aim to achieve a full digitalization of their production lines, using real time analyses to identify potential sources of error and staying continuously in the optimum corridor of their manufacturing processes?
