If you'd like a chance to inspect the software behind Industry 4.0, head straight to the stand of PSI Automotive & Industry GmbH. Under the banner "Integrated Industry - Discover Solutions", the company is demonstrating a dynamic approach to planning and controlling production that uses a "smart production management - end-to-end integration" scenario to show how it meets the complex demands of contract manufacturing using integrated product components from throughout the PSI Group. Faced with extreme order customization and a wide range of variants, the scenario also accommodates last-minute customer requirements and considers a wide range of production factors - from the availability of equipment through to ergonomically optimized workstations.
The integrated PSI system plans and calculates automatically optimized production workflows in conjunction with ERP order management and the control center, and calmly accommodates any last-minute changes to production parameters, such as faults or amendments to orders. "In PSI's trade fair scenario," says Karl Tröger, head of product management, "various high-tech software modules interact seamlessly to juggle incredibly complex processes and requirements in next to real time and thus boost production efficiency immensely. The scenario pools the entire innovative force of the PSI Group and highlights our clear focus on production and Industry 4.0 topics."
