Product development, production, and planning: three processes that need to be combined more quickly and intensively than ever before – yet while also using resources more efficiently. Within Research and Development, remote analysis of system usage is the basis of product development; in the Purchasing department, spare parts or consumables are automatically ordered by machine-to-machine communication. The Production department networks individual machines and production systems, while in the Service department, “predictive maintenance” is used for sensor-based remote evaluation of operational states and determining optimal maintenance intervals.
SFI offers support in all of these areas, beginning with consultation and planning, through to developing and installing the system. As part of this, complex systems can be installed and commissioned in advance. This means we can validate the processes together with the customer.
