Some 200 billion euros – this is what strategy consultants at McKinsey in Germany estimate the increase in growth will be by 2025, if companies implement the smart factory concept. This aspect alone makes one thing clear: only those who network their factories intelligently with a greater focus on digitalization will be able to further optimize their value chains. The supply chains and production networks are so complex that companies can no longer implement them on their own. As a rule the manufacturing companies follow the path to transformation on a step-by-step basis. T-Systems is on hand for you with digital solutions and expertise.
Quicker and more flexible reactions to increasingly individual customer requirements, reductions to outage times, high capacity, process optimization and cost savings – all this and more is possible with a transformation towards digital manufacturing. However, when developing intelligent factories companies need a clear strategy. All information must be continuously available right from the planning stage – we help our customers with this.
Only when a process chain is continuously optimized can the smart factory fully utilize its intelligence. As such we are always thinking outside the box where production is concerned.
The basis for all applications is a secure infrastructure, which we can provide with 5G-campus-networks and edge computing. In this way, quick and secure connections are guaranteed in real time.
Augmented & virtual reality enable proactive production with solutions for maintenance, tracking & tracing of all materials in stock, up to anomaly recognition and optimization of the entire product life cycle, as well as data management from the cloud and real time analysis of large data volumes.
As if by magic, the driverless transport vehicles move through the factory hall, resupplying the production employees with the necessary components. Everything becomes quicker and more efficient. Or to use a another phrase: more intelligent. As such, automotive companies and suppliers, such as Magna Steyr in Graz, are completely set on transforming their operations into smart factories with the help of T-Systems. This way they can operate more flexibly, have greater control over capacity, and more effectively deal with time pressure.
The factory of the future is based on networking. As such we always take into account the connections within your company at all levels. To connect the various systems with one another, we analyze the value chain in its entirety. We carry out a value stream analysis and present the pain points in a heat map. From this we generate a recommendation for the necessary action steps and derive an actual implementation roadmap.
