Modular MOM system bundles all functional areas of the digital factory.
To make a smart factory a reality, machines and systems from all sub-areas must communicate with each other and end-to-end digitalization must be achieved. The Dürr Group uses its manufacturing and digitalization knowledge to combine hardware and software. Together, Dürr’s software specialists and the Group subsidiary iTAC developed a modular solution for manufacturing planning, execution, control, monitoring, optimization, and predictive analysis. Instead of monolithic individual solutions, the new Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) system relies on microservices that provide functionality as required. The solution enables a high level of flexibility and consistency and offers many interfaces in terms of interoperability. The two companies will display how this works at the Hannover Messe trade fair in Hanover, Germany, from April 17th to 21st, 2023, in hall 15, booth E34.
There are three central superordinate control components in every digital factory: MES (Manufacturing Execution System) controls and monitors production, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) collects and analyzes data, and HMI (Human Machine Interface) visualizes production and process flow. Until now, these components, for example, the MES sub-segment, were mostly designed as stand-alone solutions.
Dürr and iTAC have combined their competencies and merged the functional scopes of MES, SCADA, and HMI into a uniform MOM architecture. This was made possible by combining Dürr’s DXQcontrol product family with iTAC’s iTAC.MOM.Suite. Manufacturing companies, whether manufacturers or suppliers, thus receive a future-proof industrial digitalization solution with interoperable modules that cover all smart factory functionalities.
