Data for Services (D4S) - Connected Logistics
The industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) radically shifts the entire order structure. A few larger quantity orders will become many small orders of individual products, key word ‚Lotsize 1‘. All resulting in new requirements for optimized automatizations and increased transparency along the entire supply chain.
Enterprises need something novel which we can support with D4S: Connected Logistics. Supply Chains are formed of machines and devices made by different manufacturers. They all speak a different language and have not yet learnt to communicate with each other. How do we get them to talk to each other?
The solution D4S: Data for Services.
D4S - easily explained!
What is Data for Services (D4S)?
Data for Services offers flexible and scalable data rooms which help to translate all information coming from different data sources into one coherent language for all.
Digital twins for maximal transparency and control
Digital twins enable the visualization of all data and their impact on systems and processes. The overall process is controlled and monitored efficiently. Specified linkages of systems and machines connect processes and physical operations beyond individual plants or enterprises and enable their automatization.
For example, the removal of one material and its subsequent processing can be triggered automatized by a customer order created in the system. All upcoming activities were defined in the process and are triggered automatized following a domino effect while being controlled by the fine tuning of all participating machines and systems.
As central data platform, D4S monitors and orchestrates all actions thanks to its 360 degree view upon all data and enables an overall automatization. Sensor data, stock information, in-and outbound of required parts as well as transportation routes, plant status and saved rule concepts - D4S considers all relevant information.
Providing consistent data while increasing speed, all in the scope of a significantly simplified process design - that’s D4S.
