In smart factories, especially in automotive production, we connect machines and systems through software to make the entire production process transparent. Self-organizing production plants and logistics systems are becoming increasingly autonomous. To control the factory, Dürr offers the iTAC.MES.Suite software platform, which will also be part of the ADAMOS IIoT platform. Acting as the brain of the smart factory, it sends commands to the machines, determines what material is required, and measures energy consumption. Added to that are new technical concepts such as big-data analytics. This enables huge data volumes to be processed and complex production processes to be controlled with maximum accuracy.
