New factories: the future of production is digital

Increase productivity, efficiency, and transparency in the manufacturing process using digital solutions

Utilizing the potential of digitalization

Digitalization provides manufacturing companies with data-driven solutions and networking using IoT for greater transparency in value streams and generates higher productivity through optimized machine utilization and better quality assurance. However, utilizing the potential of digitalization requires companies to manage increasing complexity and face various challenges. T-Systems helps to simplify business processes.

The challenges

  • Create greater transparency through the entire production process
  • Manage increasing production complexity
  • Improve the effectiveness of the entire system
  • Drive product and service innovation

Create greater transparency through the entire production process

An arm is typing on a laptop keyboard, in the background is a factory hall with several robot arms.

By linking data from their entire value creation process, manufacturing companies gain transparency across the entire production line and can generate added value for themselves. A prerequisite for this is the interoperability of the company’s systems with those of the machine manufacturers. T-Systems supports companies in ensuring the functionality of the interfaces and managing complexity.

T-Systems’ digital solutions ensure that companies can optimize the efficiency of their entire system. For example, by increasing machine utilization while maintaining the high quality of the products, or through predictive maintenance of the equipment in order to keep production downtimes to a minimum.

Drive product and service innovation
