Digitize your factory operations in a cost and time effective way

The Open-Source Industrial IoT Platform

Powered by industry-grade technology

Reliable and Maintainable:

Best-in-class software combined and tailored for manufacturing. Thoroughly tested and easily maintainable.

Scalable:
Works across factories and clouds through a microservices approach and Kubernetes.

Secure:
Allows to inspect and control each component to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability.

Tailored to Manufacturing:
Includes manufacturing specific business logics and applications, e.g., OEE Dashboard or Digital Product Shadow (Track & Trace)

… of IT leaders expect their use of enterprise OSS for emerging technologies to increase over the next 2 years

… see enterprise open source as more secure or as secure as proprietary software

... are already using enterprise open source

Real-time Production Monitoring

Improve operational KPIs by live monitoring production line KPIs including OEE and order status.

Digital Product Shadow

(Track & Trace)

Faster problem solving and reduced quality defects by tracking and tracing product throughout production process creating a digital product memory.

Condition Monitoring & Predictive Maintenance

Reduce unplanned downtime by live monitoring of critical machine parameters and triggering of maintenance jobs before failure occurs.

Real-time Cycle Time Analysis

Increase operator productivity by analyzing cycle times of manual assembly processes in real-time and optimize based on best practices.

Machine-to-Machine-Communication (M2M)

Automate production flows with direct communication between different machines and systems on the shopfloor.

Installation

Install on the line, in your on-site data center or in any cloud!

Hosting

Host apps yourself or have us do it for you!

Fast Setup

First results in less than a day!

Built on a GNU AGPLv3 licenced toolkit

Build your own Industrial IoT platform with our GNU AGPLv3 licensed toolkit – it’s reliable, maintainable, scalable, and secure.

Accelerate your in-house development with pre-build, open-source and manufacturing specific building blocks.


Host your data and apps yourself in any cloud or on-site or have us do it for you – acquire data from local IT systems, industrial machines and production lines (old and new), combine, analyze, and visualize it.
 

Keep full control over your data rather than sending it to a 3rd party provider.


Combine state-of-the-art, open-source components with manufacturing specific business logics and applications.
