Industry 4.0 Turn Words into Action

Since already 3 years we are operating with our own MES (Manufacturing Execution System). It supports us to make production in our house more transparent and flexible. The aim is  to connect the individual data islands and thereby create an optimized, fast, automated and lossless data communication in the production chain.

However, in order to implement Industry 4.0, it is not enough to connect IT-solutions by means of networking. Therefore, Merten plans a giant project for 2018 in order to realize Industry 4.0.

All running processes in the house are checked to optimize the entire infrastructure, as easily and efficiently as possible. Then we can integrate our existing MES and convert it to Industry 4.0.

The aim is, to optimize bureaucracy, to increase machine spindle times and to increase team spirit, due to closer cooperation between youth and experience.
