IT Infrastructure

The IT infrastructure of the Future Factory is scalable, flexible and modular. As a result, it supports decentralized, data-based use cases and Industry 4.0 scenarios particularly effectively.

  • Modularization of the IT infrastructure and use of open, standardized interfaces and connectors for simple integration of a wide variety of systems along the entire value chain.
  • Interaction of central IT infrastructure with smart production cells that have connectivity and computing power to enable "plug & play" approaches in production.
  • Campus architectures, standardized interfaces, and low-latency and high-bandwidth networking and transmission technologies to realize innovative data-based production and service scenarios.
  • Edge, Fog and Cloud Computing as the basis for novel IT infrastructures that enable fast data processing at the network periphery. Those infrastructures are characterized by high flexibility and scalability, and allow access to very large data volumes and powerful AI tools in the cloud.

Case Studies

Case Study

A dairy company is continuing its success story with a clear vision: After times of war and factory fires, it is building the most technologically advanced "Future Factory" in its region. With ROI-EFESO, the company is developing a concept for the factory, which is to be built on 70,000 square meters by 2030 - and is combining this planning with a digitization/Industry 4.0 initiative for ongoing production

Case Study

A start-up wants to position itself as one of the highest-volume European heat pump manufacturers within only four years. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, ROI-EFESO develops a production and material flow planning for the construction of the planned Gigafactory and ensures a fast scalability of the production capacities through a Smart Factory concept.
