Smart Factory Platform for Röchling Group

We cooperate with Röchling Group for the implementation of their Smart Factory Platform. Röchling Group is a family-owned, medium-sized corporate group that specializes in processing engineering plastics; 9,000 employees in about 80 locations in almost 22 countries, turnover of +1.7 billion €.

The platform aims to digitize a wide range of production processes from an Industry 4.0 perspective, used on approximately 1000 production lines (currently 5 plants in extension out of the remaining 17), satisfying the following requirements:

  • interfacing with individual machines by collecting and pre-processing field data using low latency technologies / protocols (MQTT client / broker) and a distribution / monitoring system for individual devices (about 2000 units) with Kubernetes and Docker

  • present a completely web interface accessible from mobile / tablet / desktop for the management of production processes and the organization / monitoring / predictivity of maintenance interventions

  • monitor production activity through KPIs displayed on line totems (about 700 units) or giant screens (20 units) in production

  • perform periodic monitoring and recalculation jobs, supported by a system of push notifications, instant messaging and email

  • interact with Bluetooth beacon to allow agile connection between mobile devices and adjacent production lines (in addition to signaling the escape from safety perimeters)

  • present a mobile Android / iOS native production management app

  • present a mobile app for monitoring Android / iOS cross platform Bluetooth beacons (Nativescript)

  • implement a complete system of Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment

  • integrate with SAP and related customizations, managing the input (orders and predictive) and output (final and costs) of the production processes

  • operate in HA 24/7 on plants distributed in 4 continents
