Many enterprises are successful because they operate in a unique way. For this reason, the software utilized must be tailored to your processes and not the other way round. With Maximo, you have made the right choice in this respect. 

All our concepts are based on your current individual needs without losing sight of your long-term aims. As experienced Maximo consultants, we can vouch for a solution-oriented and not a sales-oriented cooperation.

Industry 4.0 and IoT (Internet of Things) are two themes with the same background that one can no longer avoid today. In this process, through better networking the basis should be created for an optimal operation of equipment and systems.


Paradebeispiel Predictive Maintenance
Die Möglichkeiten von Industrie 4.0 zeigen sich etwa in der vorausschauenden Wartung (Predictive Maintenance), wo Anlagelaufzeiten verlängert und effizienter gestaltet werden sollen. Echtzeitendaten der verschiedenen Teile einer komplexen Maschine müssen zentral erfasst und ausgewertet werden. Doch das Wissen darüber, wie lange einzelne Anlagenteile genutzt werden können ist oft nicht verfügbar oder muss vom Hersteller beschafft werden. Glücklich schätzen kann sich derjenige, welcher heute schon Maximo einsetzt und vermutlich einen Grossteil dieser Information besitzt. Wird der Wartungsprozess diesen Informationen angepasst, so eröffnet sich ein grosses Potential für Optierung.

What exactly is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

The "Internet of Things" (IoT) has become a synonym for the connexion between the real and the virtual worlds. The starting point is the clear identification of objects like technical installations. This can be done with the help of RFID-chips or QR- and Barcodes, but also by visual recognition. By connecting them to the Internet, real objects can be enriched by virtual information and services. Based on these data, real smart objects equipped with sensors can be combined into complex, autonomous systems. Intelligent analysis tools (like IBM Watson) take decisions that can effectively influence or regulate maintenance strategy.

What is Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0 is a project supported by the industrial associations BitKom (Bundesverband Informationswirtschaft, Telekommunikation und neue Medien e.V.), VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e.V.) and ZVEI (Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und Elektronikindustrie e.V.). The term points to the fourth industrial revolution, at the end of which all machines, products and processes shall be interconnected. To this end, industry uses technology that is also applied within the Internet of Things, such as wireless networks, sensor technology and analytical tools. The interesting approach is, in this context, to take all phases of the life cycle of an installation into consideration, from the idea, development, production, use and maintenance up to its dismantling.
