During the course of the 21st century, digitization increasingly covers all areas of a company. In addition to traditional digital applications in administration, cost accounting and controlling, more and more planning and design functions can be digitally mapped and optimized along the product and production lifecycle. Using digital models and supporting functions, we can use your data even more intensively in the context of Industry 4.0 and create new opportunities.

By focusing on IT systems along the PLC, from CAD through PDM to ERP systems, IPS Engineers has the required vision, to design and improve the IT landscape of manufacturing companies. In addition to the tools of the Digital Factory, such as Teamcenter Manufacturing, Tecnomatix, etc., MES and BDE systems as well as their integration into PLM environments, are gaining in importance. We have an excellent network of application cases in all levels of integration to tackle together with you.

As part of the Industry 4.0 movement, IoT applications are becoming increasingly popular. Decentralized communication of components for performing control, documentation and planning tasks more dynamically, requires an infrastructure that links physical assets and components of these assets to their digital images. These cyber-physical systems form the basis for virtual replicas of production structures and the basis for numerous profitable applications and business models of the future.

In addition to the approaches to an integrated database, the cherry-picking concept for the selection and integration of powerful software tools has become especially popular in series production. These best-of-breed tools are usually integrated with the help of modern product data technology, based on XML. The integration architectures range from proprietary interfaces to SOA applications with open standard components. In addition, IPS Engineers has excellent access to national and international standards committees, in order to translate integration results during development into standards.
