CONTACT Software at SPS 2019: IoT solutions set up fast
The SPS is an ideal environment for CONTACT's IoT platform. In connection with automation technology, CONTACT Software presents smart solutions for shop floor management, the supply chain and service. The heart of the new, data-driven business processes is the digital twin of smart products.
With its open low-code platform Elements for IoT, CONTACT Software provides technology and application building blocks that intelligently network virtual and real products. At the SPS 2019, the company will demonstrate that Industry 4.0 projects and other digital business models can therefore be implemented flexibly and fast.
CONTACT prepares a tailor-made program for the trade fair that provides operators and manufacturers of automation solutions with comprehensive information. In Hall 6, booth 130, visitors will see live demonstrations of current industrial IoT applications. Impulse lectures highlighting the value creation potential of smart products and their digital twins will complement the program.
At CONTACT's booth, companies will meet competent experts to discuss digital strategies and clarify technical details. The trade fair team consists entirely of IoT staff from consulting and software development. Visitors will also have the possibility to approach the IoT topic in an intuitive manner. They can use VR to explore a digital bottling line and compete against a robot in the strategy game Tic-Tac-Toe.
Another highlight will be found at CONTACT's IoT partner Mitsubishi Electric in hall 7, booth 391. Here, CONTACT will use a smart factory scenario to show how companies can continuously optimize their production processes with Elements for IoT. The example is a sorting plant whose production data is linked to the Enterprise IT/OT via its digital twin.
"With our scenarios, we show that the set-up of IoT solutions is not a witch's work," says Stefan Gregorzik, who is responsible for the cross-departmental IoT activities at CONTACT Software. "In this way, we want to encourage companies to take advantage of the manifold opportunities offered by digitization."
SPS is a leading trade fair for industrial automation. Besides CONTACT Software, around 1,650 exhibitors from all over the world are expected in Nuremberg, Germany from 26 to 28 November.
