Software 4.0 is the right solution designed for companies wanting to digitize to remain competitive in the market thanks to tailor-made technologies.
What is software 4.0 for, and how can it digitize production?
To date, for manufacturing companies, there is no greater challenge than that represented by the digitization of production processes. Digitizing implies a radical transformation often summarized under the name of Industry 4.0, which makes it necessary not only to “computerize” the production lines but also to lead the company toward the innovation of processes, methods, and business approaches.
To win the digitalization challenge, companies have to collect and process data from production machines and use them as the starting point for every strategic business decision.
The automatic and real-time processing within business management applications (CRP, MRP, ERP, MES, and HMI software) or Business Intelligence, Predictive Maintenance, and Analytics tools allow you to have a realistic overview of the progress of the production (with analysis of performance, actual production capacity, any production anomalies, etc.) and obtain the calculation of industrial costs.
The Freeway® MES system _ Freeway® MES is a web application for managing and collecting production data. The Freeway® Manufacturing Execution System integrates with the Freeway® Skyline management system and factory systems to detect real-time production progress by monitoring orders, operators, and machines. With Freeway® MES, you will be able to synchronize the warehouse, perform productivity and performance analyses, calculate OEE and final costs, track all factory activities performed by company resources, and integrate the various elements or modules of the Supply-Chain.
The companies that have chosen Freeway® MES have already observed significant improvements in manufacturing performance and reductions in time to market, cycle times, data entry activities, WIP, and lead times.
