Open OT networks securely - implement digitization efficiently

Lifting the digital data treasures of the store floor level

Anyone who wants to implement digitization projects, e.g. for energy management, inventory, condition monitoring or preventive maintenance concepts, knows the challenge: How do we get the data? The controls of machines and plants, the actual source of data, are often associated with self-contained networks and deny themselves any access from the outside. And this is by no means out of ill will, but because security and functional reliability are equated with isolation. However, anyone who wants to drive digitization projects forward efficiently should be able to use as much of the data as possible that is already available in machines. In this context, the network as a whole plays a central role. It must be well planned, sensibly segmented, optimized to the respective requirements, monitored and, above all, understood as such.

Today, however, a good 50% of digitization projects are doomed to failure (source: www.service-report-it.de) or are at least severely restricted or postponed for cost reasons because the resources to be expended on data acquisition exceed the planned budget. For example, in energy management, data is currently obtained using additional energy meters and queried via a separately installed network. These additional cost drivers make the project complicated, confusing and require additional maintenance and servicing.

Case studies for effective generation of data from the shopfloor

Anyone who wants to implement digitalisation projects at the shopfloor level, such as energy management, condition monitoring or preventive maintenance concepts, knows the challenges:

Where do I get comprehensive and precisely fitting data? How can I keep the costs for infrastructural adjustments at a reasonable level?
