toii®: platform for Industry 4.0

As a digitization solution, toii® comes into play once your production planning is complete, and executes production orders with a high degree of efficiency and transparency.

toii® is highly modular and can be adapted to meet all your needs - from the first steps into the digitization process to the final phase of deep integration into your production systems, the entire journey is seamless and draws from a consistent data pool.

This allows toii® to generate significant increases in productivity by improving production transparency right from the beginning of your digital journey. What is more, the entire process is based on reliable data. Wherever possible, this data is collected using the module for machine data collection, toii®.Collect, and wherever necessary, your employees will use toii®.PDC to collect operational data.

toii®.Fusion calculates and visualizes relevant production KPIs. These KPIs can be viewed on any device using standard internet browsers, either directly by your Production team or in your Administration department.

The data gives customers the ability to make informed decisions regarding how further processes should be adapted and digitized. In this way, individual processes are digitized and partially or fully automated.

By the final stage of your expansion, your production processes will be completely paperless. Thanks to toii®, your production management and intra-logistics management will be deeply integrated with one another. toii® accesses your production orders from your ERP and optimizes your internal transportation; toii®.Control sets up machines for production, sends production orders to work station terminals, and assures quality throughout the production process. toii® consistently informs users of the status, progress, and capacity of production.

As an IIoT platform, toii® lays the technical groundwork by means of real-time digital communication between machines, systems, measurement instruments (“things”), employees in production, and the customer’s production IT systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, computer-aided quality (CAQ) systems, and/or existing manufacturing execution systems (MES).

toii modules

Here is an overview of the toii® modules.

The individual toii® modules take on many tasks in the digital factory, from data collection and machine control to visualization, allowing a multitude of potential applications to be managed.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

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.


Dieses Modul sammelt die Daten der Maschinen – das reicht von einfachen Geräten ohne Speicherprogammierbare Steuerung (SPS) oder älteren Maschinen mit benutzerdefinierten Schnittstellen bis hin zu modernen, IoT-fähigen Maschinen.


toii fusion

Interpretiert und visualisiert Maschinendaten, die über toii®.Collect, toii®.PDC oder toii®.Lights gesammelt werden. Die Daten werden mit externen Daten kombiniert und machen die Produktionsleistung auf Dashboards sichtbar. Alle relevanten Daten lassen sich auf einem beliebigen Webbrowser anzeigen.


toii control

Das Integrationsmodul für die Automatisierung und Steuerung aller Maschinen. Maschinen werden bidirektional verbunden, Prozesse automatisiert und Datenflüsse in der Fabrik gesteuert. Der Bediener wird durch die Verwendung moderner User Interface Technology informiert.


toii integrator

Mit dem Modul toii®.Integrator können externe Systeme (3rd Party Systems) an die toii®-Plattform angebunden werden. In der Regel sind dies MES- oder ERP-Systeme, aber auch die Anbindung anderer Datenquellen und Senken ist möglich. Hierbei ist sowohl die lesende als auch die schreibende Kommunikation möglich. Die Anbindung erfolgt meist individuell.


toii PDC

Das mobile Modul der toii®-Plattform. Daten von fest installierten Terminals oder mobilen Geräten werden auf die Plattform übertragen und können dort weiterverarbeitet werden. Auf diese Weise können auch manuell erhobene Produktionsdaten, beispielsweise durch Eingaben der Produktionsmitarbeiter, in die digitale Produktionskette mit eingebunden werden.


toii think

Option für künftige Smart-Data-Anwendungen mit unbegrenzten Erweiterungsmöglichkeiten. Hier können Algorithmen, bspw. im Rahmen von Predictive Maintenance den Wartungsbedarf der Maschinen vorhersagen, die Produktionseffizienz optimieren, individualisierte Prozesse entwickeln oder neue Geschäftsmodelle generieren.


toii.Lights Modul

toii®.Lights nutzt das Prinzip der japanischen Andon-Methode: Lichtsignale zeigen den Status der analogen Maschine an und überführen ihn in digitale Daten. Den Status aller Maschinen kann man sich in einem Webbrowser ansehen, bzw. die gewonnenen Daten zu ersten Analysen verwendet werden. Eine einfache, effektive und kostengünstige Einstiegsmöglichkeit.

Data Security

Data Security toii

Die Modularität der toii®-Plattform unterstützt die Implementierung in einer sicheren und segmentierten Netzwerkumgebung auf der kundeneigenen Netzwerkarchitektur (zum Beispiel VLAN). Die einzelnen Module können per Transport Layer Security (TLS) kommunizieren und eine verschlüsselte Verbindung zu allen Maschinen/Devices aufbauen. toii® unterstützt die neuesten und sichersten Security Profile wie OPC-UA. Die Plattform und deren Komponenten werden regelmäßig durch das thyssenkrupp eigene Computer Emergency Response Team, kurz CERT, überprüft. toii® bietet maximale Datensicherheit und unterliegt im Betrieb der strengen Europäischen Datenschutzgrundverordnung (EU-DSGVO).

toii®: significant benefits compared to other IIoT solutions

  • The “first data mile,” from the machine to the intranet or the cloud, all from a single source

  • Support for older legacy machines - developing interfaces is our area of expertise

  • Integrated data pool with clear relationship to customer/production orders and shifts (not just collection)

  • Flexible subscription model: You only pay for the modules that generate value for you
