Industry 4.0

Technologies transforming business & rediscovering growth


Industry 4.0 is an approach to integrate IT and OT using Infrastructure related technologies and Application Software Components along with Emerging Technologies. This is required to make IT & OT in a Manufacturing Organization, a part of one seamless comprehensive framework4 spread across the entire value chain in the Industry (full-fledged Industry 4.0.)

Our Industry 4.0 practice is an endeavour to ameliorate the major challenges and problems faced by manufacturing industries. We do this by making use of our existing proficiencies across various aspects of IT System Integration and software development/customization. This is amply augmented by the products and solutions from our strong ecosystem of partners.

With an objective to help the industries overcoming major problems, we are offering the following set of solutions and services:

Ethernet to the Factory

A key initiative to any Industry 4.0 plan!

The 4th Industrial revolution or Industry 4.0 is centered around Convergence of IT and OT Infrastructure. Our solution approach is focussed on the efficient utilization of current assets. The features like Real-time visibility of Plant floor Network, Intent-Based Networking, Time Sensitive Networking, etc., enable the organizations to make quick decisions and reduce down-time on Shopfloor Network. This prevents loss of critical production time as it detects the faults before time, troubleshoots quickly and rectifies faults faster, thereby boosting the OEE.

The Plant IT Network deployment grows as the manufacturing plant continues to grow with time. This most often includes a need to connect various machines coming from different Machine Manufacturers using multiple technologies. The underlying difficulties in converging such Machine Networks lead to the creation of multiple network silos which blocks the operational efficiency of the plant.

Our Ethernet to the Factory (EttF) Solution

  • Provides for Convergence of these Networks and supports provision of various network enrichment facilities. This Intelligent Industrial Networking Architecture also enables Connectivity, Visibility, Manageability, Security, and Network Assurance of IT devices and Networks deployed on Shopfloor.
  • It supports multiple Industrial Automation Protocols like Ethernet/IP, CIP, Profinet, CC-Link, MODBUS, TCP/IP, IEC61850, etc. to build connectivity with a wide range of PLC, HMI, DCS, etc.
  • It provides Redundant and Resilient OT Network, Auto discovery of Network Topology, Full Network Visibility, Manageability, Scalability, High responsiveness, Network Assurance, Quality of Services, Time Sensitive Networking, Prioritization of Traffic, System Availability, End-to-End Security, Secured Remote Access and Zero-touch Installation with the help of IND for smooth functioning.

Factory Networking

Factory Networking is the best way to build a common, converged & rugged plant-to business network. The major components are:

Cisco® Industrial Network Director (IND), which helps operation teams gain full visibility of network and automation devices for improved system availability and performance using integrated Topology map.

It supports industrial automation protocols such as CIP, PROFINET, OPC-UA, Modbus, BACnet, etc. to discover automation devices such as PLC, IO, HMI, and Drives.

The simple user experience streamlines network monitoring and delivers rapid troubleshooting of common network problems found in industrial environments.

OT intent-driven security workflows with Cisco ISE, and anomaly detection with Cisco StealthWatch integration.

Power Consumption Monitoring & Management

  • Auto-Monitor consumption of power by each machine and highlight any unusual patterns.
  • Dashboard with energy sensors display on the floorplan
  • Real-time data on 3 Phase/1 Phase
  • Historical energy consumption comparisons
  • Power level legends with different colours
  • Alerts on power KW exceeding or dropping below threshold on any machine
  • Energy cost on an hourly basis

'All-on-My’ Screen Dashboard

The ‘All-on-My’ Screen is a unified dashboard that enables easy monitoring & risk management of the machines/equipment through devices & sensors. Equipped with the latest technologies, the sensors on the machines track all the data from the machine and send it on the cloud to your screen. The dashboard offers:

  • All info “I” need on My Screen
  • Drill down facility
  • Real-time or near real-time info
  • Span of Control based need for Info type | Granularity
  • Multiple Channel Alerts
  • Situation-specific Display Media
  • All data stored in Database
  • Data Analysis and Analytics
  • Ticketing and Collab. Solution integration

Industry 4.0 Strategy Formulation Consulting Support

IT & OT integration is an essential part of Industry 4.0 solution, although it goes way beyond to embody a “Model-Based” approach to all aspects of the manufacturing enterprise, whether it is designing, planning, engineering, manufacturing or any other enterprise activity. More importantly, the approach also guides the organization on how to manage the touchpoints across these functions as well as the information exchange at these touchpoints.

We can help you in mapping where exactly does your organization stand in terms of these parameters, leading to a numerical assessment of your Model-Based Enterprise Score.

  • We can participate with you to define your Industry 4.0 objectives, target score, and target dates therefor.
  • We can also work with you in making a date wise plan of action for achieving those objectives, defining the action to be taken across the relevant manufacturing and enterprise functions.
