A product optimization within the smart factory will be enabled through the individual, automated E2E solution.
Smart Factory

Intelligent, Automated Production Management

By comprehensively networking objects, systems and processes, manufacturing companies can achieve 2- to 3-fold productivity increases.
Due to changing customer behavior and demand for personalized products, companies now need to be able to manufacture one-off batches at mass production prices. T-Systems’ integrated solution for an individual, automated E2E solution – from sensor technology, networking, data transfer and process linking through to the operation of applications and big data analyses. Predictive analysis and optimization of E2E production processes in real time.

Trends & drivers

Gradual factory digitization using end-to-end interconnectedness as well as cross-location implementation from a single source
Digitization of markets and changing expectations of end consumers are changing production conditions. Disruptive competition is forcing customers to adopt new business models and make adjustments to the value chain.

Customer requirements

Reduced costs to counter increasing pressure from the competition. Innovation & quality to cater to changing consumer behavior. Product optimization through greater transparency and flexibility in the value chain and beyond as well as through real-time analyses for quick response times.
