2050 Company and its partners have competences in the following key Industry 4.0 areas
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
Industrial Internet of Things is a multi-level system consisting of sensors and controllers installed at manufacturing equipment, acquired data communication and visualization tools, powerful analytical tools to interpret the information, and many other components.
2050 Company has all the competences to implement the key Industrial Internet of Things aspects such as: equipment, personnel, quality control, logistic flows, infrastructure based on connectivity and IoT platforms.
Artificial intelligence (AI)
As to artificial intelligence, the following technologies are implemented:
— A digital twin of a production facility is a virtual copy of a real object that accurately defines all the real processes and interrelations digitally. It is intended for design, analysis and evaluation of the facility operations. The Digital Twin introduction covers the creation of a digital simulation model, 3D models, and the use of Process Simulator.
— Predictive analytics as applied to equipment is data analysis methods focused on forecasting the future behavior to make optimal decisions. Predictive Analytics uses statistical methods, smart data mining, big data processing with neural networks, and the game theory. It analyzes current and historical facts to predict future events. Clover Group (www.clover.global), a key 2050 Company partner, offers predictive analytics solutions .
— Edge computing is computing performed directly by monitoring devices.
The integration of IT and IIoT
Both vertical and horizontal integration of IT and the industrial Internet of Things are provided. The vertical integration is represented by such systems as PLM (Product Lifecycle Management). The horizontal integration is made possible through ERP, MES, SCADA, etc. There are additional IT solutions and applications to enhance Industry 3.0 (e.g., CAD/CAM/CAE)
