CONTACT Software at Hannover Messe 2022
The digitization and networking of products creates great added value in development, production, operation and service. At the Hannover Messe, CONTACT Software is demonstrating the many ways in which companies are already benefiting from end-to-end data-driven Industry 4.0 applications.
Intelligent asset management, real-time production control or closed-loop engineering: CONTACT Software is highlighting the enormous potential of smart industrial solutions in Hanover with the new version of its open low-code platform Elements and a robot from Mitsubishi Electric. Visitors will experience live how the physical product interacts with its digital twin and how its movement and operating data are monitored on a dashboard.
CONTACT's fair presentation again addresses professionals who want to dive deeper into concrete scenarios for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and end-to-end product lifecycle management (PLM). In the Elements for IoT platform, they can see, for example, which factory floor a machine, plant or robot is on. They track their shift performance via visualized metrics and learn how companies can initiate predictive maintenance or spare parts procurement purely by configuration.
Elements for IoT automatically triggers processes in maintenance, purchasing, shopfloor or development via continuous operating data analyses. This also benefits strategic product planning by enabling closed-loop engineering. If manufacturers know how customers really use their machines, they can carry out tailored retrofits of existing equipment, develop new functions or the next product generation in a more targeted manner, and avoid expensive, less ecological over-engineering.
"Digitalization and sustainability are the central themes of the trade fair," says Dirk Sebesse, Senior Account Manager at CONTACT Software. "We will show how many of the resulting requirements can already be met today with our Elements platform and its applications." The business economist and his colleagues will also be answering questions in Hanover that companies have about networking their assets, consistent integration of OT and IT systems, edge & cloud computing and other technical details.
CONTACT Software can be found at the it's OWL joint stand in hall 11, booth B29.
