IIoT Platform and MES for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

Developed and Tested for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

Developed and Tested for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

The products we deliver to you have been in development and testing for years at more than 30 thyssenkrupp sites. Our global network of production sites is primarily made up of small and medium-sized enterprises alongside a number of larger facilities, so we developed an Industrial Internet of Things platform with a wide range of digitization solutions. It is three things above all: fast, affordable, and designed for SMEs. Its name is toii®.

End-2-end production digitization

End-2-end production digitization

Regardless of whether your machinery is brand new or of an older generation, made by one manufacturer or a patchwork of different makers, or uses a range of different communication interfaces – our core competency is building bridges between these different systems, helping your machines speak the same language, networking them, and making them controllable. We also integrate your ERP system and, if you have an MES system, we will integrate our solution into that.

Quick and easy entry into digitization

Quick and easy entry into digitization

To help you digitize your production in days, not weeks, we have developed toii.Lights. This solution even works on machines without any communication interfaces, and it offers: Transparency regarding your machines and the entire site in real time; Logging and evaluating reasons for downtime, e.g. waiting for materials, setting up, unplanned downtime/disruption; Evaluation of capacity Evaluation of cycle times, resulting in very simple predictive maintenance. Getting started with digitization is not only quick; it’s also affordable! You can expect hardware costs of 300-400 euros per machine.

End-2-end service

End-2-end service

We make digitization easy for you and help you with the first steps, implementation, and training your team. Upon request, we can also continue assisting you after everything has been set up, and monitor your digitization solution. That way, you can stay focused on your core business! We have all the skills necessary for the job: Our consultants will work with you to develop your solutions. In the process, they can generally draw on solutions that have already been developed, making digitization fast and affordable for you. Our field engineers are focused on machine integration, IT infrastructure, and the implementation of your toii® solution. Our software engineers adapt our software modules to suit your company.

IIoT Platform toii® tk-play

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions promise significant increases in productivity, particularly for manufacturing companies. With toii®, we have developed an IIoT platform that facilitates these increases in productivity for SMEs, which we rolled out and refined at thyssenkrupp plants. toii® is generally initiated during operations scheduling. As a manufacturing execution system, it executes production orders with a high degree of efficiency and transparency. Here’s what toii® has to offer:

- Real-time transparency regarding the company’s shop-floor productivity across multiple locations, thanks to its machine and operational data collection system

- Partial automation of processes through digitization

- Fully automated processes, ultimately creating a paperless smart factory

toii® links ERP, CAQ, or other existing production IT systems with your assets in production. This allows toii® to cover the entire production chain, from manufacturing management and intra-logistics to the final packaging process. The cost-benefit ratio of every version of toii®, from the basic product to the fully integrated solution, is completely tailored to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Tailored to Your Company’s Needs Thanks to Modular Software

toii modules

toii®.Lights

toii®.Lights uses the principle of the Japanese Andon method: Light signals indicate the statuses of the analog machines and convert them into digital data. The statuses of all the machines can be viewed in a web browser, and the data acquired can be used for preliminary analysis. A simple, effective, and affordable option for starting the digitization process.

toii®.Collect

This module collects machine data, ranging from simple devices without a programmable logic controller (PLC) or older machines with user-defined interfaces to modern, IoT-capable machines.

toii®.Fusion

Interprets and visualizes machine data collected via toii®.collect, toii®.PDC, or toii®.Lights. This data is combined with external data to visualize manufacturing output on dashboards. All the relevant data can be viewed in a standard web browser.

toii®.Control

The integration module for automating and controlling all your machines. Connects machines bidirectionally, automates processes, and manages data streams in the factory. The modern user interface technology keeps the operator informed.

toii®.Integrator

The toii®.Integrator module can be used to connect third-party systems to the toii® platform. These are usually MES or ERP systems, but the module can also establish connections to other data sources and sinks for both reading and writing communication. The connection is usually established on an individual basis.

toii®.PDC

The mobile module in the toii® platform. Data from permanently installed terminals or mobile devices is transmitted to the platform for further processing. This also means that production data that has been collected manually, such as entries made by employees in Production, will be integrated into the digital production chain.

toii®.Think

Module for future smart data applications with unlimited expansion options. This module’s algorithms can forecast when machines will require maintenance work using predictive maintenance, optimize production efficiency, develop customized processes, and generate new business models.

Data Security

The modular nature of the toii® platform facilitates implementation in a secure, segmented network environment in the customer’s own network architecture (e.g. VLAN). The individual modules can communicate via transport layer security (TLS) and establish an encrypted connection with all the machines/devices. toii® supports the latest and safest security profiles such as OPC-UA. The platform and its components are regularly tested by thyssenkrupp’s internal computer emergency response team (CERT). toii® offers maximum data security and is subject to the strict EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) within the company.
