Machine Data Aquisition
FORCAM FORCE Bridge: Bridge to smart manufacturing
Digital transformation is only possible with real-time data from production. To achieve this, a wide variety of machines and systems must be digitally networked. The big challenge: machines from different vintages as well as from different manufacturers must be connected to a central IT platform that evaluates all signals uniformly and makes them usable.
Machine data acquisition with the FORCAM FORCE™ Bridge platform offers you a central data hub between production and planning, between store floor and pot floor (SAP/ERP) and between all third-party systems that are to be networked with your production data. Every signal from production – whether from machine, sensor or browser-enabled device – is standardized and translated into a uniform IT language. Systematic data semantics thus create global “production intelligence” – Big Data becomes useful Smart Data. The Smart Data is available in real time for every application of the FORCAM FORCE™ ecosystem and, via the first open programming interface FORCE Bridge API, also without restrictions for your own third-party systems – for many locations across country and language borders.
