    SPS 2015: Virtual Management For a Smart Factory

    / /

    The WEBfactory i4 is a software platform designed by WEBfactory GmbH, a specialist for automation software and web technology. The platform allows companies to manage their individual Industry 4.0 approaches by mapping machines and production plants virtually, online and on different mobile devices.

    Five modules enable real-time administration: i4SCADA, i4Monitoring, i4Maintenance, i4Energy and i4Analytics. They can be purchased individually or as a package. The system gathers and stores data of the whole company thanks to data warehouse technology. i4SCADA visualizes sites and machinery, whereas i4Monitoring constantly surveils and evaluates key indicators to verify that all machines are running properly. I4Analytics evaluates and analyzes the measured indicators to ensure anticipations and prognosis. The ISO-certified i4Energy module is the application, which unites the energy management of the whole factory on one screen. And finally i4Maintenance calculates when the next check of the system is due.
