CONTACT Software at Hannover Messe 2024 

At the world's largest industrial trade fair, CONTACT Software demonstrates how companies can accelerate their digital transformation. Visitors experience the benefits of end-to-end connected processes firsthand, from the initial product idea to manufacturing, operation, and service. 

Challenges like increasing competitive pressure, a shortage of skilled professionals, as well as more complex requirements regarding sustainability lead to only one conclusion: companies need to swiftly advance their digitalization in development, manufacturing, and service. Under the motto “Fast Forward Digital Transformation”, CONTACT Software will showcase at Hannover Messe from April 22 to 26 how they can quickly integrate digital technologies along the entire value chain and enhance competitiveness.

CONTACT's booth H24 in hall 17 centers around a racing simulator which is connected to the Elements platform and already proved to be a crowd-puller at last year’s Hannover Messe. For this year, the scenario featuring a fictional motorsport team has been significantly expanded. It now illustrates how the integration of IoT, PLM, and MES increases the efficiency and pace of industrial development and manufacturing processes.

CONTACT's IoT platform collects and analyzes the car’s telemetry data, revealing which vehicle components offer optimization potential. Based on these insights, the ideal purchased part is identified. The selection not only considers performance criteria but also environmental aspects like the provision of sustainability certificates. Once the optimum component is found, it is tested in the digital twin of the vehicle to save time and resources.

This year, the interactive scenario extends all the way to the shopfloor. At the OWL joint stand D27 in hall 07, visitors learn how CONTACT's solutions for digital production control help reduce downtime in manufacturing, optimize maintenance processes, and achieve high delivery reliability. Thanks to transparent scheduling and resource planning, production managers remain calm even in the event of short-term staff absences.

At CONTACTs demo stations, visitors gain insights into the specialist applications and learn how to best leverage them for their company’s use cases. CONTACT Elements offers more than 50 software modules for collaborative product development and project management, digitally connected production control, smart services, and more. They are based on industry standards, can be flexibly combined, and operated on-premises or in the cloud.

“When it comes to digital transformation, speed is the key to success. In Hannover, we show specific digitalization use cases that yield quick and yet sustainable results,” says CONTACT's Managing Director, Maximilian Zachries. “We demonstrate how companies can use their resources as efficiently as possible – whether it is raw materials, energy, or the time of their employees. We also provide valuable insights into the potentials of artificial intelligence for industrial applications.” CONTACT provides free tickets for interested persons. Appointments for a live demo or a meeting with one of their experts can be scheduled in advance.
