Interoperability in industrial machinery manufacturing

By Alessandro Cereseto

Increasing customer requirements urge industrial machinery manufacturers to focus on flexibility.

Consumer trends are shifting towards increased customization, greater efficiency, and more compatibility with other solutions and technologies. A more personal experience for the customer is achievable as they can tailor the machine to their own needs. Therefore, seamless interaction between different systems has to be achieved.

Managing operations in a decentralized manner while having real-time information and a global overview with the use of cloud solutions enables quick reactions of the managing team.

That way, a more effective exchange of information between the customer and the site is promoted. Digging a little deeper, extensible and interoperable systems for faster exchange of data is crucial for the machine operators as decisions can be made more quickly.
