Your transparent production
in real time

Ein Computer zeigt cronetwork Betriebsdaten

Efficient and Industry 4.0-compliant manufacturing (the smart factory) is characterized by transparent production processes in real time. The basis for this is data that reflect the manufacturing situation digitally. An essential success factor on the way to the smart factory is the recording of this manufacturing data: only if these data are recorded promptly, correctly and uniformly can you supply the best information for key performance indicator systems, enable fast and correct decisions, minimize downtimes, etc.

In addition, cronetwork Plant Data Collection provides you with valid decision bases for sustainable process optimization. cronetwork MES becomes the information hub in your digital factory.

“Because we can zoom in down to the individual entry, we can move down to any level and surf through the data without losing our overview.”
