SAP Cloud Platform extends Industry 4.0 manufacturing technology
#SAP announced two partnerships that enable SAP Cloud Platform to extend #IoT and #robotics in manufacturing. The partnerships with #Mitsubishi Electric Europe and KUKA AG were made at the HANNOVER MESSE industrial trade show, held recently in Hannover, Germany.
SAP and Mitsubishi Electric Europe announced that SAP will participate in the Mitsubishi Electric e-Factory Alliance partner program. The partnership enables Mitsubishi Electric’s automation applications to operate with SAP Cloud Platform, and by using SAP’s IoT features Mitsubishi Electric can transfer preselected data from the automation applications to SAP Cloud Platform. This extends Mitsubishi Electric’s e-Factory to partners and customers to offer value-added IoT-based services for the manufacturing and process industry sectors, according to SAP.
The new IoT-based services include remote device and connectivity management, monitoring production status and asset availability, and predictive maintenance that allows operators to benefit from the long-term analysis of factory data.
