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.

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.

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.

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.

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
