iTAC Software AG, the MES/MOM specialist, is advancing IoT possibilities by combining AI with IoT (AIoT) and creating new value from data. The company focuses on gathering, analyzing, and understanding data from sensors and machines with the help of an MES/MOM. Manufacturing enterprises can use this integration to draw predictions and develop self-learning processes through data.
Martin Heinz, a board member of iTAC Software AG, explains, "With the Internet of Things and a multitude of networked machines, more data is available. However, this data is worthless if it cannot be used in decision-making processes. It must therefore be processed and evaluated by AI applications as quickly as possible. Artificial intelligence can also draw comparisons with other processes, systems and their data and, by learning from experience, independently solve future tasks, avoid errors and optimize processes."

The IoT framework, therefore, requires artificial intelligence, which in turn necessitates the IoT as a data source. As part of the MOM (Manufacturing Operations Management) system, the iTAC.IIoT.Edge software combines IIoT data with MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) data to create flat data structures for real-time analysis.
Numerous ML/AI uses, such as prediction, can be built for advanced and digitalized manufacturing using its edge solution. For example, monitoring machine and sensor data facilitate the prediction of machine failures (a reduction of nearly 70%). In addition, the company provides a use case library that enables the implementation of numerous applications by customers.
