It can happen that fast. The "Open Industry 4.0 Alliance" was launched in the spring of 2019 and in the short time since then its membership has risen from 8 to around 60. One of the members is VEGA. That’s because the Black Forest instrumentation specialist fully supports the Alliance’s goal of helping the diverse range of cloud-based services now available on the market to achieve a kind of teamwork capability. Whether Smart Factory, Industry 4.0 or IIoT: ultimately, these terms all mean the same thing Factories, machines and components are becoming increasingly networked and smarter. With its comprehensive sensor portfolio, VEGA offers high-performance measurement technology for all level and pressure requirements – from standard applications to highly complex solutions for any conceivable production environment. It is becoming increasingly important to link production more closely with IT technology and use measuring results for intelligent control across the entire business. Just-in-time solution from VEGA A powerful example of this is the software technology embodied by VEGA Inventory System. It builds the bridge between automated logistics and IT. Thanks to its data streams, it enables goods to flow efficiently, “just in time". It practically eliminates the need for massive storage facilities that have to buffer the supply of materials directly on site at production locations. Materials are delivered automatically and exactly when the production process requires them. The data for this is provided by service-proven VEGA sensor technology.
