Essentially, 4Industry does not replace any of your existing systems.
Multiple systems will still exist in your factory after implementation. Some of those systems’ functions can be taken over by 4Industry; for other functions, 4Industry will integrate with existing systems by exchanging data.
For example: If your operators register equipment defects via SAP PM, this can be taken over by 4Industry. The resulting work order to fix the defect will still be handled in SAP. The work order details, however, are exchanged with the defect registered in 4Industry to enable it to track the status and completion of the defect. Other examples
of integrations are with typical manufacturing systems like SCADA and MES.
