The time has finally come again: from 30 May to 02 June, Hannover Messe will once again open its doors and become a meeting place for visitors, exhibitors and experts. With its focus on digitization and sustainability, the world’s most important industrial fair is setting clear impulses for the transformation of business and industry. […]
Of course, Trovarit AG will be there again and will present its services and tools for the selection, introduction and optimization of business software at its booth in the “Digital Ecosystems” area (Hall 4, Booth G22). This year, she has the brand-new market overviews in the field of supply chain management (SCM) and product lifecycle management (PLM/PDM) in her luggage. This time, their partner and co-exhibitor WeconnectAI will be on hand: The start-up company, which is funded by the “Strategic Center of Entrepreneurship Munich” and has won several awards, will show visitors how they can cleverly digitize their business processes with the help of AI technology.
Trovarit Competence Center MES
An important part of the digital transformation is the expansion and optimization of the operational software landscape. In manufacturing companies, MES in particular play the role of the IT-technical enabler for Industry 4.0. However, it is not always easy to answer the question of which of the approximately 100 MES on the German market suits your own company, as the market tends to be very confusing.
The specialists of the Competence Center MES at Trovarit create transparency and provide the experience, methods and tools for all questions in the field of software for production management. The focus here is on the creation of an MES specialist concept, which includes the MES strategy and the design of the target processes, on an MES potential check, the so-called actual analysis, as well as on the final advice on MES selection, which is handled centrally via the online platform IT-Matchmaker® in the areas of specifications, market research and tendering.
Implementation of a business software solution
But the selection of a new MES solution is by no means done: with the implementation of a business software such as MES, PLM / PDM, ECM, ERP or CRM, etc., the user company usually faces a big to very big effort. It is about nothing less than replacing a central infrastructure of the company without the day-to-day business suffering unduly. If the prerequisites for a successful system introduction were created in the selection phase, it is now necessary to actually implement them together with the provider. At the end of the project, a stable running system must be available, which can be transferred to normal operation.
The question of the “most important task” within an introductory project can hardly be answered, but the setup and planning of the project has a fundamental influence on its entire course. Here it is important for the user company to hold the reins in its hands and to face the task of project management. Against the background that companies often do not have the necessary resource and competence, it is advisable to involve an external, but above all independent expertise.
WeconnectAI provides information on AI topics
With the stronger networking within companies and through new, digital business models and products, AI technologies are becoming more and more important: On the one hand, AI-driven analytics in business applications helps to increase the decision-making quality and speed in companies. On the other hand, AI-supported automation solutions hold considerable efficiency potential in many areas of the company.
WeconnectAI has set itself the goal of providing companies of all sizes with AI solutions. “We first take a concrete look at whether and in which areas a company can benefit from the use of AI,” Marc Gehring, one of the two founders and CEO of Weconnct AI, describes the procedure.
“We use our own AI readiness model, which is based on use cases from different industries.“ By comparing with already implemented use cases, possibly supplemented by a prototypical implementation, the benefits of using AI quickly become clear and measurable. In the next step, the right partner for the technical implementation is then determined via a specially developed AI platform.
