Production on the way to industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is associated with high costs and little benefit for many decision-makers.
This does not always have to be the case.

Quickwins can be reached in partial steps without digitizing the complete system.

Our approach is divided into three phases:

  1. Industry 4.0 Assessment
  2. Concept development
  3. Implementation of fields of action


  • Joint assessment of requirements
  • Identifying fields of action and their costs / benefits
  • Implementation in partial steps; treatment of neuralgic gray areas in the process

Improvement of the filling process in a food group company:

After the assessment phase, it was decided to automate two key performance indicators (MTBF and MTTR) in order to obtain a solution as soon as possible and to optimize in partial stages.


  • Drill-down reporting
  • Gray area in the process has been made visible and improved
  • Use of hidden potentials
