In the 21st century, quality control after the fact isn’t good enough anymore. That’s why indigo enables realtime online analysis of production data through intelligent edge systems. Through indigo, self optimizing processes help you maximize your production yield and enforce higher quality standards while lowering expenditures.
Most IIoT middlewares simply collect information and forward it to higher instances, communicating only vertically. indigo is different because it connects every part of the factory both vertically and horizontally, allowing all participants on the shop floor to communicate in realtime.
Beyond a pure software platform, indigo is the unified “operating system” for your entire production. And it gives you access to the indigo Marketplace – a whole ecosystem of skills, applications and connectors to easily integrate and adapt any available hardware, field bus or protocol.
indigo empowers edge controllers with unprecedented connectivity and functionality, allowing local machine learning instances to analyze production data as it is generated. Analysis results flow back into production controls without delay, allowing in-time optimization without interruption. Wear and tear analysis in realtime enables predictive maintenance, leading to cost savings of up to 40%.
indigo unifies both your data and your machine information in one distributed semantic model. You are free to create your own namespaces and ontologies using the full Unicode spectrum. Find and access all your data points by name, from everywhere.
Black box PLCs are about to go the way of the Dodo. But even with the rise of Soft PLCs, no standard has emerged yet. That’s why indigo uses open interfaces to adapt the Soft PLC of your choice – or create your own. Say bye-bye to vendor lock-in.
