The Advanced Manufacturing Landscape describes our perspective on the challenges of Industry 4.0 and focuses on one primary objective: The availability of the right information at any time and any place, throughout the entire life cycle of the product.

Knowledge-based decision making at any level, event driven decisions, adaptive processes or autonomous decisions is what we like to refer to as Intelligence. To allow for the required decision support at any moment of time, all useful information is turned into a powerful and versatile Digital Twin of your product or production environment. But in order to provide the required information, the vast amounts of Data available at your company, must first be collected, made accessible and properly managed.
To be competitive in the world of tomorrow, Data generated throughout the entire life cycle of the product, from development to production and the user must be turned into Information, and in turn provide the Intelligence to make the right decisions today


What has come to be known as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” is being shaped predominantly by production digitalisation and networking. Buzzwords such as the “Internet of Things and Services” and “Cyberphysical Production Systems” promise increased networking of autonomous and self-optimising production machines and intelligent products which can be customised to manufacture highly individual outcomes. Much of this remains a vision – for the time being. However, companies with the will to succeed in the fiercely competitive global markets need to consider today the role they wish to play in “Industry 4.0” tomorrow.
