The digital transformation presents the manufacturing industry with great challenges, but at the same time also offers numerous opportunities. Companies must digitize their production, analyze large amounts of data (big data), optimize operational processes for cooperation between people and machines, and find new ways to integrate business and private customers into the value chain. OFFIS offers especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), which usually cannot maintain their own R&D departments, the mediation of ICT competence in these four main topics.
The focus is on our model factory - a test and integration platform for industry 4.0. This laboratory infrastructure offers a flexible production area equipped with modern production technologies such as 3D printing, robots, laser cutters, transport systems and communication technology. This is complemented by a simulation platform that allows complex virtual production and logistics processes to be modeled and planned on screen.
