Enter Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0, the digital, flexible and optimized factory
Industry 4.0 incorporates the latest information technologies into production processes. Industrial plants integrate physical and software components to achieve more flexible production processes that optimize resources and save costs.
Industry is immersed in a digital revolution and when talking about Industry 4.0 we find examples of companies that have fiber optic networks to connect more devices, machines, computers, data servers, energy consumption sensors and process and quality variable sensors.
This Fourth Industrial Revolution implies greater individualization of supply and greater flexibility in production processes. To achieve this, the full availability of all information produced in real time is necessary. Therefore, in Industry 4.0, technology is very important, both in terms of infrastructure and information management and exploitation.
Benefits of the doeet system for Industry 4.0
The system doeet MES MOM is an intelligent predictive system and is one of the most important industry 4.0 applications examples. Starting from the data provided directly from the machines, it digitizes the entire production process: units produced, production orders, self-justified stoppages, recording of process variables, recording of energy consumption, etc..
All data are recorded and stored in databases for later exploitation by other systems such as ERP or WMS Warehouse Management System or real-time labeling systems. It also allows the production team to obtain OEE Performance and Productivity data, see improvement trends, implement improvement actions and check their impact on objectives.
- The implementation of more optimal and integrated production processes, resulting in higher productivity and better resource management.
- Increased flexibility to achieve mass production and at the same time customized in real time.
- Direct communication between customers and organizations, which means we can better understand what customers need.
- Reduction of manufacturing time both in new product designs and in their commercialization.
- Reduction of the percentage of defective products manufactured thanks to the possibility of virtual testing and the optimization of assembly lines.
Basic pillars of Industry 4.0
MES / MOM system.
An MES (Manufacturing Execution System) or Manufacturing Execution System as doeet is an advanced system that allows to manage in a comprehensive way all the production processes in the plant.
Real-time analytical costs.
doeet monitors production data : personnel, time, energy, consumption, rejects, stops, speed, thus providing the necessary factors for a highly accurate calculation of the total costs of the manufactured product.
Analytical Costing is fundamental to analytical or cost accounting for industrial operations. The Manufacturing Cost Report allows investigation down to the smallest detail of the causes of cost variances.
OEE. MTBF. MTTR.
Knowing the OEE allows the company to work with reliable information in real time, with which to carry out immediate improvement actions at any level.
The concept of Visual Factory is to offer reliable, updated and functional information to improve the operability of companies.
doeet creates customized information panels with the information we want, automatically updated and focused on improving operability. In these panels we can visualize in real time the status of the machines, their productivity, notify warnings or report changes in manufacturing orders.
Manufacturing Operations Management is the first step in achieving Industry 4.0. Factories with computerized production processes are better prepared to respond quickly to market changes.
By applying intelligent systems in real time, we can anticipate, for example, a line stoppage. With doeet, the maintenance team will be able to extract and analyze structured and accurate information from all stored data.
CMMS. ISO 9001. ISO 14001.
IFS. BRC. GlobalGAP.
The digitization of the Production and Manufacturing Areas allows optimizing Productivity by providing structured and useful information through availability, performance and quality KPIs. This results in greater efficiency, flexibility and reduced response time to the market, satisfying customers more efficiently and quickly.
IOT. External variables.
ERP. EMS. Planners.
Sensors, robots and operators produce a large amount of information related to industrial production. Mobile and wireless connections and cloud computing make it possible to link information from these systems and share it in real time with the rest of the industrial value chain.
doeet captures production data directly from the machines and sends it to the server where we can consult its status from any device.

Integration between systems
OEE, MES, MOM, ERP…
Until recently many digital systems developed for industry ( OEE, MES and MOM systems) were closed systems, lacking configurability and the flexibility to adapt to changing business and market needs. All allowed processes to be managed efficiently but in isolation. The different systems also did not interoperate with each other in real time.
New technological solutions such as doeet facilitate intercommunication between management systems and manufacturing plants in real time. doeet enables integration with the main ERP systems on the market. This is what is known as system interoperability, which is making it possible to multiply the volume of information that is analyzed and correlated in real time.
In real time and anywhere
As long as you don’t forget your cell phone
Mobile technologies and new human-machine interfaces make it possible to consume the information coming from the different systems, displaying it on the plant floor on devices such as tablets, mobile devices and all types of screens. doeet is built on the most advanced web standards that allow us to access the required information from any place and device.
Competitiveness is extreme, so agile, real-time decision making is essential. Having the necessary enablers that make this possible are in Industry 4.0 examples of a fundamental factor.
