proALPHA at CeBIT 2014
Experience "Industry 4.0" live
Jan 16, 2014
Under the motto "Innovation in Mind – Progress in Life" the proALPHA group invites to this year's CeBIT from March 10 to 14 in Hanover. proALPHA will welcome visitors at stand E18 in hall 5 to present its contribution to this year's key topic "Industry 4.0": an exemplary installation giving insight into the possible processes of a factory of the future and their controlling in the ERP system of tomorrow. The process and service-oriented system architecture and the innovative, ergonomic operation philosophy form the basis for trend-setting collaborative platforms.
A wider and rapidly growing diversity of variants combined with shortest cycle times and a very close integration of customers and partners in business and value-added processes will characterize the new production. This requires a far deeper process integration than today – means of production and logistics are vertically linked to the ERP system at all points. True to the fair motto "Innovation in Mind – Progress in Life", the proALPHA group synchronizes the results of current research in cooperation with partners like DFKI, the SmartFactory KL and other representatives of the Software-Cluster. By contributing their own technology and function development to the Leading-Edge Cluster competition, the proALPHA group actively takes part in shaping the "adaptive services in networked production environments" as an important element for the future-oriented project "Industry 4.0". All those interested are cordially invited to experience the "factory of the future" live. By means of a production module containing typical processes, a demonstrator shows how the intelligent, integrated production systems are vertically linked with the economical processes (ERP system) within a company. The multi-level process example visualizes how an order in the ERP system, here in particular by means of a WEB configurator by proALPHA on the production level, triggers the sequential processes using the intelligent product as the information medium.
Visitors of the most important IT fair of the year are invited to learn more about the key topic "Industry 4.0" and are also welcome to inform themselves first-hand about the technology and scope of functions of the ERP system proALPHA and the corresponding range of services of the IT provider from Weilerbach.
