The possibility of support from competent partners in the context of digitization projects up to Industry 4.0 has been a major incentive for Pfleiderer as a manufacturer of engineered wood. Production processes in the wood-based materials industry are largely automated and data is collected on a large scale. Derive the potentials from the data and use them in a targeted way (without much effort) to arbeit, see it as a core task for the coming years. Pfleiderer isis working on a use case together with various partners. various partners explicitly with the implementation of of digitization solutions and is making its production facilities available as a test field in the application, as well as the corresponding data.

Together with the partners, they would like to conceptualize and develop the requirements from an industry perspective, how the working world in the digital production environment should be designed with regard to data utilization, and what possibilities exist.
