Sensing a new future with Manufacturing-X

To succeed with the Manufacturing-X initiative, industrial sensor business Pepperl+Fuchs is streamlining the way it manages data so that it is better prepared for a digitally-networked future.

Manufacturing-X promises to be an industry gamechanger – and at a global level. The German initiative will see the creation of a data ecosystem that will enable data to be exchanged securely between manufacturers using open standards. With data linked digitally right across the supply chain, companies will be able to innovate in a more collaborative way. Workflows will become more transparent across company boundaries, and this will pave the way for greater resilience, sustainability and competitiveness.

To prepare for the Manufacturing-X initiative, many manufacturers are working hard to streamline the way they work. But did you know the average large organization uses over 350 software apps and services? Each may have been installed to deliver a specific benefit, but having multiple point solutions can make it incredibly difficult to achieve a single view of the business. This can make it challenging for teams to make good decisions and work effectively together.

One company actively trying to resolve this issue is German sensor specialist Pepperl+Fuchs. Its teams were working independently and juggling over 100 different solutions – and this was inhibiting its plans to digitally transform. The business wanted to find a way to digitally link its data silos together into a single source of truth upon which everyone – including customers – could base business decisions.

In Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud Pepperl+Fuchs will find the perfect solution. Its unique data model will enable Pepperl+Fuchs to manage its products throughout their whole lifecycle and securely share data with other stakeholders. This will enable it to become more agile now, and support its contributions to Manufacturing-X in the future.

Find out how Pepperl+Fuchs intends to roll out the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud to drive exciting new developments and facilitate its innovation in an incredibly competitive marketplace.
