Processes and technologies will be presented together in an integrated overview of process flows and solutions, and not as separate elements as usual, at Hannover Messe 2020. "In the current age of Industry 4.0, the focus is on flexible manufacturing, standalone yet integrated machines and systems, and autonomous exchanges of process information," said Hubertus von Monschaw, Global Director Digital Ecosystems at Deutsche Messe. "And the key to it all is the software that maps and manages these processes. At Hannover Messe, all theme areas relevant to this will be clustered in the Digital Ecosystems display "
Among the exhibitors in this part of the show will be big-name regulars like Autodesk , Atos, Amazon Web Services , Cisco , Dassault , EPLAN , HUAWEI, Kaspersky, MPDV , Microsoft , PSI , SAP , Siemens PLM, Software AG and Telekom. There will also be a number of prominent newcomers such as Google , proAlpha , McAfee and Knapp . Their displays will span a range of themes, including predictive maintenance, machine learning, MES (manufacturing execution systems), logistics (WMS and TMS), data analytics, CAD (computer-aided design), PLM (product lifecycle management), business platforms, ERP (enterprise resource planning) for real-time monitoring, virtual/augmented reality and industrial security.
These themes attracted over 100,000 visitors at Hannover Messe. One key aspect common to all of them is increasing convergence of applications and technologies. MES and data analytics are a case in point. Manufacturing execution systems (aka production control systems) are able to function reliably only if their future performance can be predictively modeled and analyzed using appropriate data analytics such that improvements and checks can be undertaken as appropriate. Monschaw explains: "Today’s MES systems are about more than just fault analyses of individual machines. They involve aggregating data in order to identify scope for optimization and even develop entirely new business models."
