Main focus 03/2017: Industry 4.0 @ EDAG

Shaping the real and virtual worlds together

As EDAG Production Solution is a manufacturing engineering company for the automotive industry, we offer to our customers our “Networked Engineering” (V-model) to bring the possibilities of the value chain in the context of Industry 4.0.

We understand this as the systematic, horizontal networking of the digital and the real world (1st dimension), of product development and production system (2nd dimension) in a value chain from the supplier to the end customer (3rd dimension).

The ideas behind Industry 4.0 are not necessarily new. What is new is that, at the current stage of technical development, we are finally able to transform these innovative, sometimes revolutionizing ideas into affordable solutions: this applies to software and above all to hardware.

For us, production IT is the key element of Industry 4.0. This is where the horizontal threads that are anchored in all other disciplines - in simultaneous engineering with product development, in the planning of modern body in white and assembly lines, in intelligently networked logistics in energy management, or in production planning - come together.

The following contains accounts of specific EDAG PS services and products that have been designed and implemented in fields impacted by Industry 4.0:
