Industry 4.0: And now?
The topic Industry 4.0 is on vogue. In the industrial environment, but also in research and development, one wants to use the potential of the networked analysis of distributed data. measX develops smart solutions based on the latest technologies. We present some of them in our new X-Press.
Digitalization continues to progress and has also drastically changed measurement and testing technology. While at the beginning the question was "How do I digitize my measurement data?", five years ago it was already "How can I link and standardize my test benches? Today we have reached the question of how to automatically evaluate measurement data from distributed systems and how to feed key figures and statistics into an automated monitoring process. This puts us right in the middle of industry 4.0. As we can see from our projects, it is no longer just the big players who are dealing with this issue. Smaller companies are also addressing the question of how they can benefit from networked automation in measurement and monitoring systems. At the same time, the IIoT market is getting bigger and bigger. This has advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, more and more advanced technologies are available. On the other hand, the topic is becoming increasingly complex. We see it as our task to maintain an overview for our customers and to advise and support them on their way to the Industrial Internet. The "Blickpunkt" of this issue is therefore dedicated to the topic of Industry 4.0. Specifically, we present the information and evaluation system that we have implemented for the commercial vehicle development department of Daimler AG. You will also get to know our sister companySL-automation and learn how "agile software development" is lived at measX using the example of a pump test bench.
Even if there is only one German version, I hope you enjoy reading it,
