Lean management through smart products

25. September 2018

Smart products allow processes to be optimized and streamlined. The result: a much more productive use of raw materials, energy and plant, to name just a few examples.

The data provided by smart products allows a completely new type of lean management, as they open up countless optimization possibilities along the entire value chain. Integrated sensors detect, for example, the need for maintenance or repair and thus prevent a possible production stoppage or loss of production. They optimize or reduce energy consumption and accelerate a smooth production process. New data analyses, which can also be anonymized with Crypto technology and thus carried out and analyzed across all operations, lead to increases in efficiency that were previously not possible.
