IGH Infotec AG is now mem­ber of the umati community.

 

What expect­a­tions do you have of umati, what do you expect from the partnership?

A stand­ard­ized com­mu­nic­a­tion with the equip­ment on the shop­floor is the vis­ion. A max­im­um het­ero­gen­eous “data world” is the real­ity. With umati we have the chance to define a mul­ti­lat­er­al “lan­guage” to com­mu­nic­ate with the spe­cif­ic machines and equip­ment on the shop­floor. The part­ner­ship enables us to help shape this “lan­guage”

What advant­ages does umati offer your com­pany and your customers?

“With the (umati-) stand­ard for com­mu­nic­a­tion between the con­trol level and the store floor, expenses are reduced, errors are avoided and data secur­ity is increased. The aim is to take the hor­ror out of machine and sys­tem com­mu­nic­a­tion. The cus­tom­er bene­fits from this in the form of safe and cost-effect­ive solutions.”

How do you eval­u­ate the expan­sion of the umati ini­ti­at­ive to the entire mech­an­ic­al engin­eer­ing industry?

“That must be the goal. Only if every­one par­ti­cip­ates, umati will be a suc­cess. Pro­pri­et­ary approaches and wag­on castle men­tal­ity do not get us any fur­ther. The future industry 5.0 only works on the basis of open and stand­ard­ized sys­tems and interfaces.”

About IGH Infotec AG

IGH Infotec AG is a pro­vider of stand­ard soft­ware for pro­duc­tion and logist­ics in con­nec­tion with SAP ERP and S/4HANA. Our port­fo­lio is divided into the fol­low­ing topics:

  • Mobile data acquis­i­tion — mobile work­ing with the SAP sys­tem in pro­duc­tion and logist­ics. The mobile work­flow is optim­ized for the inform­a­tion needs of the employ­ee and the SAP system.
  • MES (Man­u­fac­tur­ing Exe­cu­tion Sys­tem) — col­lec­tion and man­age­ment of pro­duc­tion data, present­a­tion of per­form­ance indic­at­ors (OEE, etc.) and ini­ti­at­ing an improve­ment con­trol loop in con­nec­tion with the SAP system.

In addi­tion, we advise our cus­tom­ers from pro­cess ana­lys­is, applic­a­tion con­sult­ing to the cre­ation of optim­iz­a­tion con­cepts for pro­duc­tion and logistics.

A major top­ic is the inter­ac­tion with the store floor. In addi­tion to the act­ive integ­ra­tion of the plant into the data flow, com­mu­nic­a­tion with the oper­at­ing resources (machines) is an import­ant per­form­ance fea­ture of our products.
