Ensure your manufacturing systems and processes are safe, secure, reliable and efficient
The Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Intelligent Automation and Robotic Technologies are enabling the deployment of smart, data-driven manufacturing solutions that improve efficiency, boost productivity and enable the development of new services. These intelligent solutions are automated and connected. Business processes linking suppliers and clients are also becoming more integrated, with the introduction of comprehensive enterprise solutions that consolidate people, machinery, installations, logistics, products and services into streamlined systems. This development raises concerns for manufacturers: primarily, how to start their Industrie 4.0 migration and develop the optimal roadmap for their business. Increasing connectivity also begs the question of how safe, secure and reliable potential solutions are, and how interoperable different vendors’ various components are when exchanging information.
Industrie 4.0, also known as Industrial Internet, Advanced Manufacturing or Smart Industry, is widely regarded as the next big step in the evolution of manufacturing. It is characterised by seamless connectivity and interoperability, decentralisation, flexibility, and adaptability. Our experts can assist you in your Industrie 4.0 journey by analysing your current situation and jointly developing an Industrie 4.0 roadmap and its implementation plan. This enables you to understand your individual situation and the journey ahead, achieving your individual goals in an effective and efficient way, alerting you to corresponding risks in terms of safety, security, reliability and interoperability, and advising you on how to mitigate these risks.
At TÜV SÜD, we understand that each client has different requirements. This is why we tailor our solutions to each project from the onset. From planning and design to implementation and operation, our experts ensure the reliability, security and availability of your manufacturing systems and processes. As a globally renowned third-party quality and assurance provider with an international team of multidisciplinary experts, we are uniquely capable of offering auditing, testing, certification and advisory solutions for all your evolving Industrie 4.0 needs.
Our suite of services supports manufacturers throughout their entire Industrie 4.0 migration, from evaluating the maturity of specific factories (status quo), training (understanding Industrie 4.0) and guidelines through to testing and certification services for safety, security, reliability and interoperability.
We evaluate your Industrie 4.0 maturity in terms of technology, processes and organisational culture. The result is a defined assessment of your organisation’s current level of readiness, which serves as the basis for developing a roadmap and its implementation plan.
We initially train your team in the overarching Industrie 4.0 concept before expanding into comprehensive in-depth training such as advanced manufacturing processes. Our trainers can deep-dive into specific aspects of technology, process and culture-related issues.
Our experts collate your specific requirements for adopting safe, secure, reliable and interoperable technologies and solutions.
During the implementation process, our quality assurance and control (QA/QC) services ensure adequate planning, design and implementation of Industrie 4.0 technologies and solutions.
In addition to our standard services portfolio – including environmental, EMC, and safety testing and certification – we offer new services for smart, datadriven solutions comprising functional safety, cyber security, advanced analytics and interoperability.
We guide your organisation throughout the whole Industrie 4.0 migration, ensuring targets are consistently met and new technologies and solutions are implemented efficiently.
Save time and money – by ensuring the safety of components, machinery and processes from the onset of the design process, thereby facilitating a smooth migration.
Guarantee business continuity – by securing critical assets from cyber security threats such as industrial espionage and sabotage.
Increase efficiency and productivity – with assured quality and interoperability between components, machines and systems.
