Each process and product is different, therefore, the identification of those areas of improvement (to be automated) is required. ICT and manufacturing technologies have to understand each other in order to achieve objectives, focussing the efforts in function of each business. This does not mean investigating future ways of working but applying improvements in our value chain now by implementing technology that is already available on the market.
To do this specific product knowledge and processes have to be represented on a platform that allows the information to interconnect (Semantic Systems Repcon® platform).
Machinery, controllers and devices at the factory are monitored and managed via specific protocols and standards (OPC, Profinet, PLCopen...). At a higher level we have applications that manage the execution of manufacturing systems (MES...), which facilitate the correct operation and control of orders and resources at the plant by the direct workforce. At the higher level we have our business management orientated software solutions (ERP, CRM, SCM...), usually used by the indirect workforce.
Semantic Systems provides custom applications that are integrated within your management system which work via terminals such as smartphones or tablets that can be run from any location to carry out sales, manufacturing, installation, delivery and post sales support processes.
All industrial software should be implemented within an infrastructure that is accessible from any location via the complete logistics and manufacturing chain. Semantic Systems is specialised in hosting, administration, virtualisation, backup, communication and security of your applications and software systems.
The Internet opens the doors to the world but at the same time it can also leave us vulnerable to attacks which put at risk the security of our systems. The more we install software and communications into our devices, processes and products, the more the risk of attack increases.
