Your advantages
  • Digital image of production
  • Simulate realistic production processes
  • Freely configurable through simple editor
  • Develop your own Smart Factory Apps
  • Free access to production data via API

Universities teaching with the virtual learning factory

A unique interplay

Education

Teaching plays a central role in the fourth industrial revolution – after all, the foundations for the professions of the future are laid here. The interdisciplinary nature of the degree programmes is essential for training Industry 4.0 experts. FORCE Bridge combines IT and engineering sciences.

Research

Today’s research ensures tomorrow’s competitiveness and innovative strength. New technologies create markets and jobs. In particular, the industrial internet of things and artificial intelligence are two major drivers of growth and digitisation. With FORCE Bridge, we combine precisely these two technologies.

Industry

Industry is facing one of the greatest upheavals in its history. Digitalisation is coming with full force. From small to large – all awake companies understand the opportunities and possibilities it brings. With the FORCE Bridge platform, we support companies in mastering the entry into the digital age.

Model & simulate realistic manufacturing processes

Model your own production processes and scenarios independently. Through visualisations of your virtual factory, you can immediately see status changes in production and what effects they have on the entire manufacturing process.

  • Digital twin of production
  • Realistic production processes
  • Configurable through visualisation editor

Apps for Industry 4.0 – from smartphones to VR goggles

Develop applications for the industrial internet of things. With full access to production data, you can develop entirely new business models. From the smart factory app for the smartphone to applications for VR data glasses, you define the boundaries.

  • Develop your own apps
  • Free access to production data
  • ADK for easier programming

Generate order & production data at the push of a button

The virtual factory offers the possibility to easily generate a wide variety of production data that is generated in reality. From master and movement data to machine and process data. In this way, individual production processes can be simulated.

  • Independent generation of data
  • Mapping of realistic scenarios
  • Open access via FORCE Bridge API

Easy data retrieval via standardised web services

Our FORCE Bridge API gives you access to over 300 standardised production data for creating digital applications. Easy and user-friendly access via open web interfaces REST.
