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.
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.
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.
