First step to the change –
ONCITE Digital Production System

A head start for your factory

The ONCITE Digital Production System offers fast, secure networking of your production, state-of-the-art data management and maximum production transparency. We combine intelligent production management with the possibilities of the IIoT – using the latest cloud and edge computing technologies.

Do you want to harness data from networked production environments in order to gain valuable insights and leverage optimisation potential? The ONCITE Digital Production System combines the aligned industrial software applications of the ONCITE Industrial Suite with the cloud and edge computing-based ONCITE Factory Edge, giving you access to numerous industrial IoT and MOM applications as well as a low-code platform for managing and monitoring your production – simple, needs-based, user-centric and cost-effective.

The ONCITE Digital Production System on the ONCITE Factory Edge also meets the increasingly important requirements of data security, superiority and sovereignty. It guarantees much shorter processing times for critical production data and processes, enabling production to be optimised in near real time.

Manufacturing industry

Digitalisation offers major advantages for the manufacturing industry, which is characterised by its customer-centric approach, prompt reactions to changes and the cost-effective manufacture of a wide range of products. Advantages include horizontal and vertical networking as well as the gradual digitalisation of analogue processes and information flows. Effective production and process data management generates valuable knowledge that can be used to improve quality, optimise processes and create value.

Plant and mechanical engineering

Plant maintenance, operation and disposal make up about 90 per cent of life cycle costs, which is why digitalisation offers enormous potential for savings in plant and mechanical engineering. For example, manufacturers can transform their plants into small digital ecosystems using edge node technology, enabling them to introduce valuable IT services and use these as a basis for developing new business models.

Automotive and supplier industry

The automotive and supplier industry is undergoing a massive transformation. E-mobility, autonomous driving, connectivity and other trends are changing manufacturing requirements. In addition to new manufacturing conditions, strict quality guidelines and sustainability issues are also dominating the industry. Digitalisation is picking up speed, with suppliers now having to share their data with third parties, for example. Solutions for quality enhancement as well as for secure, standardised data transmission and maximum data sovereignty in accordance with Catena-X standards are therefore required.
