In their search for innovations, companies in NRW are not left to their own devices – they can benefit from the range of services offered by the subsidized innovation2business project.
Making information accessible: Artificial intelligence can improve information management in the company.
The start of a successful digital transformation is favored by a high level of lean maturity.
The digital transformation demands new skills from employees in mechanical and plant engineering – and the focus of this event was on what these skills are.
The event provided an overview of innovations and methods in production systems in the context of Industry 4.0 and highlighted areas of application during a virtual tour.
North Rhine-Westphalia has the best prerequisites for the digital age. Mechanical engineering and production technology companies are particularly in demand as enablers and problem solvers. They act as suppliers of Industrie 4.0 modules, as integrators of ICT technologies and sensor systems in their products, and not least as users of Industrie 4.0 solutions to optimize their own production processes.
Digitalization and Industry 4.0 bring with them a new value creation logic that is a complex challenge for all those involved. ProduktionNRW has defined five topic areas that need to be analyzed, discussed and driven forward.
For the fifth time, the NRW Ministry of Economic Affairs is the patron of the “NRW Economy in Transition” competition. Applications are open until June 30, 2022.
Interoperability in production is an important condition for many Industrie 4.0 use cases. With the help of OPC UA, access to production data can be made much easier.
Artificial intelligence can not only provide support in the production context, but also offers assistance in administrative areas.
