Cloud-based process monitoring and optimisation

31 August 2022

WERMA OFFERS an innovative plug and play solution for comprehensive, permanent monitoring of all production and logistics processes that is cloud-based, easy to install, quickly retrofittable and widely scalable.

Whether used on machines or systems, in logistics areas or at manual workstations, WeASSIST by WERMA has been designed to ensure transparency, digitally and in real time. This helps to identify problems before they arise, helping enable constant process optimisation.

WeASSIST offers an ideal solution for companies aiming to bring full transparency to the entire value chain. The cross-industry cloud solution consists of hardware and software and turns networking and Industry 4.0 into reality quickly, easily, and without involving major installation work or programming. This lets users easily implement comprehensive monitoring and constant optimisation of all manufacturing processes – digital, cloud-based and scalable at any time.

All relevant data is clearly displayed regardless of the source (manufacturer, type and age of machines or manual workstations). Unlike complex MDC/MES systems or IoT solutions, WeASSIST enables easy identification and evaluation of every optimisation potential, in real time and from anywhere.

The cloud-based solution can be retrofitted at any time, and enables process optimisation in one minute: Simply integrate the hardware into workstations or machines and activate software access. Then configure the hardware, software and individual dashboards, assign roles and users. All integrated machines and workstations will immediately report their status directly to the software via a gateway. This allows problems to be identified right away and processes to be optimised constantly through analyses, enabling optimisation.

WeASSIST offers immediate and full transparency regarding all workstations, machines and systems and delivers reports at the touch of a button to facilitate constant optimisation of all processes. The system is flexible and can be retrofitted at any time, allowing you to easily upgrade existing machines or workstations.

Being 'out of the box' solutions, the hardware and software are quick to deploy. And WeASSIST can be easily integrated into existing structures as a retrofit solution. As a cloud-based solution, WeASSIST enables users to stay on top of things from anywhere, using any devices.

WeASSIST gives all the options needed to implement process optimisation based on specific application requirements. Regardless of whether users want to start small, big or somewhere in between, the solution is easily scalable and can be adapted to specific production or shipping infrastructures at any time due to its modular design.

In addition, the software-assisted configuration also makes individual control and visualisation options possible. As a result, the system can be effortlessly adapted to suit the specific processes and situation.
