Industry 4.0 strategy & implementation

Making sense of Industry 4.0 & its practical applications in your manufacturing facility.

The first step on your Industry 4.0 journey is assessing the state of your operations. We give manufacturers practical advice and guidance on what interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data is needed. With our own manufacturing roots, we'll ensure you only utilise Industry 4.0 principles and Industrial IoT (IIoT) technologies as required. We seek to retain your existing equipment wherever possible.

Central to the Industry 4.0 journey is education. Every manufacturing facility needs an Industry 4.0 champion. In partnering with you, the Facteon team will provide the tools you need to keep internal stakeholders motivated and focused. An Industry 4.0 strategy must be focused on achieving specific business goals. Jumping on the Industry 4.0 bandwagon without a defined strategy costs manufacturers time and money. Start your journey with a team of experts leading the way, and your business will be well-equipped to improve efficiencies, reduce waste and future-proof its operations.

Industry 4.0 strategy & implementation

Assessing Industry 4.0 Readiness

Starting with a stocktake of the state of your operations, we work to understand your manufacturing challenges. At this stage, we seek to understand how Industry 4.0 and IIoT technologies can add value to your operations. We then formulate a plan so you have visibility over the next steps on your Industry 4.0 journey. 

Formulating an Industry 4.0 Strategy & Roadmap

Establishing and committing to an Industry 4.0 strategy is key to success. This strategy informs each stage of your Industry 4.0 roadmap. Through formulating a step-by-step plan for your technology implementation, you'll have the resources to explain the short-term and long-term impacts of your facility's Industry 4.0 journey. In the early stages, we're able to deliver a proof of concept to your key internal stakeholders. Through providing a proof of concept, we prioritise delivering quick-wins. This gives you the power to educate internal stakeholders on the importance of kick starting your Industry 4.0 journey now. In short, making clarity from confusion is the main purpose of your Industry 4.0 roadmap.

Industry 4.0 & IIoT Technology Selection

Facteon selects the technology you need and nothing else. The application of these technologies must be effective to ensure maximum business impact for minimum expenditure. A common misconception of Industry 4.0 adoption is that outdated machinery must be replaced with the latest in automated production equipment. Through the use of sensors, as well as modern IT and OT equipment, we can bring your outdated machinery into the Internet Age and ensure it's Industry 4.0 ready. However, if you decide it's out with the old and in with the new, we can help.

IIoT Technology Integration

Facteon's approach ensures we only integrate new technologies into your facility as needed. We seek to maximise the ROI of your existing technology when possible. However, if you do require new systems and technology, we're able to provide a variety of solutions. If your business needs are highly specialised, our Industry 4.0 and IIoT experts can develop a customised solution. Irrespective of whether you have an off-the-shelf or bespoke solution, we work with your team to ensure that the solution is seamlessly integrated into your facility. We're also able to integrate the latest IIoT tools. Such tools convert the data drawn from your machinery into real information that can inform your decision making, in real-time.
