Heat Treatment and Industry 4.0 and their links to the ERP systém
The problem of Industry 4.0 and its relation to total digitization of processes in heat treatment has been discussed for several years. However, except for exceptions such as TPM management or process data collection, it is not clearly specified what the goal of this digitization is.
No matter how basic criteria are set for Industry 4.0 under the conditions of heat treatment operation, it is clear that the primary goal is to economize production on all levels. It is therefore a link between technical and economic data. This problem is addressed in more detail in this lecture, including a general analysis of the availability of software solutions on the market.
