Digital production and logistics with Cisco.

Making processes even smarter.

Many digitalisation projects in production and logistics aim at improving service provision with the focus on boosting efficiency, cutting company costs and improving the quality of products and services. The idea behind this is to automatically connect the entire value creation chain of a product to people, objects and systems across company borders and in an intelligent manner. making it more transparent, agile and efficient . Customer expectations and process optimisations can be met and implemented in real time, which leads to greater agility in the company, while unlocking real USPs. This makes digitalisation a very individual and multifaceted process that is relevant for every industrial company. Bechtle and Cisco are experts in this sector and actively support customers in their digital transformation process.

"The three key factors for success in digitalisation projects are transparency, a flexible infrastructure and the necessary security. To realise digitalisation projects successfully, we have to think outside the box, Many fail because of sticking to conventions. We can give you a fresh perspective and help you to find your own successful path into the digital world.”

The advantages of digital production and logistics at a glance.

Optimised logistics.

Predictive maintenance.

Improved production.

Real-time data analysis.

Connected processes.

Highest cybersecurity standards.

Easy network administration, ranging from IoT Edge up to the cloud.

Connecting sensors, scanners, machines and production facilities to the office environment is a very important component of many digitalisation projects in the industrial sector, along with their management and monitoring. Production data needs to be saved, analysed and provided to other systems and applications used in the office environment. For this reason we use toughened industrial devices for production that understand and translate machine language. These harmonise with a classic network infrastructure via a centralised management platform. Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) offers uncomplicated network management, ranging from IoT Edge up to the cloud. This offers almost limitless potential for production. You can rely on Cisco and Bechtle.

Predictive maintenance.

Predictive maintenance helps companies to plan highly precise maintenance of production facilities and machines in advance to prevent unexpected downtime. Knowing when a machine will be unavailable can drastically reduce the costs and effort of maintenance, allow a very selective provision of spare parts and resources as well as inherently improve the company’s value creation chain. Precise data analysis and evaluations require sensors and monitoring solutions, therefore predictive maintenance can be the basis for countless innovations in production.

Smart logistics.

Over the years, supply chains have developed into highly complex eco-systems, shared by producers, suppliers, business partners and customers. It’s every company’s goal to get the maximum performance out of their supply chain network. Besides increasing efficiency and reducing costs, digitalisation can offer companies the potential to generate innovation and advantages for the customer.  Logistics will become a game changer, enabling new sales concepts and business models. Modern IT solutions provide the basis necessary for connecting and automatising the supply chain. With our inside knowledge of smart logistics, we can serve as your experts and answer all of your questions, while providing you with the right consultant.

Industrial security.

Digitalisation is one of the biggest factors for success in production and logistics chains. The increased connectivity of machines, industrial facilities and entire supply chains increases the risk of cyberattacks  with the consequences of a successful attack being severe. Production downtime, data theft and the manipulation of machines and products leads to huge economic drawbacks. This makes it necessary for companies to think of and implement a comprehensive cybersecurity concept for the digitalisation process that includes effective protective measures. In collaboration with Cisco, Bechtle has developed a multifaceted cybersecurity concept for these sectors that can guarantee long term stability for operation and security.
