Business case

Integrated customer feedback and real operational data for continuous improvement of machines. This allows a machine manufacturer to extend their product portfolio by offering data-driven services, such as equipment health monitoring and predictive maintenance to customers, as on-demand subscription-based services.

Pre-conditions and restrictions

  • Secured Machine connectivity to the internet
  • Customer requires complete ownership of data (transparent, audit-ready data trails, integrated data usage policies)

Solution workflow

  • Digital-Twin of machine published over manufacturer DataSpace
  • Digital-Twin Instance shared to the customer via IndustryApps, email or QR code
  • Customers can scan and import the Digital-Twin to their DataSpace
  • Customers can subscribe solutions of interest (OEE, predictive maintenance, etc.) from the IndustryApps open marketplace
  • Customer can assign permissions to machine on demand
  • Manufacturer application receives data based on permissions granted
  • Manufacturer delivers services based on shared data

Business case

Machines can be offered to customers in an attractive pay-per-use business models, allowing the machine manufacturer to leverage machine quality as strength over costs. An example is a manufacturer of industrial equipment who offers his products via a pay- per-use, cost-per-parts or cost-over-time.

Pre-conditions and restrictions

  • The equipment or machine remains under the ownership of the manufacturer
  • The machine has connectivity and is operational from the manufacturer's Dataspace

Solution workflow

  • Customer receives credentials to view the Digital-Twin over the manufacturer platform
  • Pay-per-use logics are embedded in the Digital-Twin data model
  • Customer has access to selected applications over the platform
  • Customer has access to their permitted portfolio of machines via the platform

Business case

Access to product life-cycle beyond sales and services, allowing machine manufacturer to improve sustainability measures goals by supporting the product journey from design to recycling. An example could be an OEM seeking to implement end-to-end product traceability, including design, procurement, production, deployment, repair and recycling.

Preconditions and restrictions

  • No centralised system or solutions
  • Flexibility for value-chain partners to utilise multiple solutions

Solution workflow

  • Manufacturer creates a Digital-Twin template with all key elements from design, simulation, nameplate, repair and recycling
  • As part of the machine deployment, the manufacturer delivers the Digital-Twin instance of the machine to the customer
  • Customer has ability to import the Digital-Twin as master data in his data instance
  • Customer enhances the Digital-Twin with maintenance information
  • Customer has access to the recycling partner in the machine's EOL
  • Recycling partner updates the machine status to EOL and recycles components

Business case

A global manufacturer of food products powder is considering to offer end-to-end traceability of all batches supplied to customers. The business case enables the manufacturer to meet the growing Customer demand for sustainable business practices, to monitor and reduce the carbon foot print impact, and to collaborate across the vertical value chain.

Pre-conditions and restrictions

  • No centralised solutions across value-chain
  • Flexibility for value-chain partner to deliver data in multiple methods
  • Clear data ownership and data sovereignty

Solution workflow

  • Manufacturer builds a Digital-Twin template for ingredients and raw materials with all key specifications for product, quality, storage conditions and batch details, for each stage of processing from farm to the final product
  • Manufacturer integrates with common farming data systems used by the farming community in each country
  • Manufacturer injects manufacturing data from own factory systems like ERP, MES, PLC/DCS Storage condition data in each phase of product life cycle, including critical parameters like storage condition injected from existing storage management system
  • Transport related information gets injected into the data model from existing TMS system

Business case

Deliver holistic business services across equipment categories, including competitor products, to win markets. An example is global market leader in industrial drives and motors seeking to extend its service portfolio by offering business services (support/spare parts/ predictive maintenance) for competitor products.

Pre-conditions and restrictions
