Taiwans stark bei Industrie 4.0 und smarter Fertigung

Industry 4.0, smarte Fertigung, das Internet der Dinge, Künstliche Intelligenz, Mensch-Maschine-Kollaboration: Die Industrie erlebt wohl den größten Umbruch seit Einführung der Dampfmaschine.
Damit steigen auch die Anforderungen an die Hersteller von Maschinen: Sie müssen die mechanische Bearbeitung von Werkstücken ebenso beherrschen wie die Sensorik und die Informationstechnologie, etwa die Datenanalyse und Künstliche Intelligenz.

Industry 4.0, smarte Fertigung, das Internet der Dinge, Künstliche Intelligenz, Mensch-Maschine-Kollaboration: Die Industrie erlebt wohl den größten Umbruch seit Einführung der Dampfmaschine.
Damit steigen auch die Anforderungen an die Hersteller von Maschinen: Sie müssen die mechanische Bearbeitung von Werkstücken ebenso beherrschen wie die Sensorik und die Informationstechnologie, etwa die Datenanalyse und Künstliche Intelligenz.

Die Maschinenindustrie in Taiwan ist dafür bestens gerüstet. Die Unternehmen in dem asiatischen Land entwickelnsich von traditionellen Maschinenherstellern zu Lösungsanbietern und spielen eine der führenden Rollen in der globalen Entwicklung von Industrie 4.0
Ein Beispiel von vielen ist die intelligente Doppelkurbelpresse von Chin Fong Machine Industrial Co., diemit dem Taiwan Excellence Award ausgezeichnet wurde. Die Maschine überwacht sich selbs tmit Sensoren und KI-Technologie. Zusätzlich ist sie ist mit der Cloud verbunden. Techniker können so den Zustand der Maschine aus der Ferne überwachen und konfigurieren.
Die Schleifmaschine Smart Precision Grinder von EQUIPTOP, einem kürzlichebenfalls mit dem Taiwan Excellence Award ausgezeichneten Unternehmen, zeichnet Störungsinformationen auf und meldet diese dem Servicedienstleister, der dann die Ursache der Störung herausfinden beheben kann.
Predictive Maintenance ist auch eine der Anwendungen der Equipment IoT-Plattform DIALink von Delta Electronics. Sie sammelt Daten von CNC-Maschinen und speichert programmierbare Steuerungen. Diese werden aufbereitet und an die Cloud übermittelt. Die Daten können für die vorausschauende Wartung genutzt werden.

NEONYT: Thinkathon Challenges stehen fest

Die Otto Group, Bikini Berlin und das EU Projekt Textile and Clothing Business Labs – die drei diesjährigen Challenge Hosts des von der Messe Frankfurt im Rahmen der Neonyt veranstalteten Thinkathons haben ihre Fragestellungen bekannt gegeben. Sie fokussieren die hochaktuellen Themenfelder Kreislaufwirtschaft, neue Konsumenten-Handels-Beziehungen und Industrie 4.0.

Die Otto Group, Bikini Berlin und das EU Projekt Textile and Clothing Business Labs – die drei diesjährigen Challenge Hosts des von der Messe Frankfurt im Rahmen der Neonyt veranstalteten Thinkathons haben ihre Fragestellungen bekannt gegeben. Sie fokussieren die hochaktuellen Themenfelder Kreislaufwirtschaft, neue Konsumenten-Handels-Beziehungen und Industrie 4.0.

Ein Marathon des Denkens: Im Hintergrund der Neonyt findet im kommenden Januar wieder der „Thinkathon“ statt. Das Erfolgsformat bringt zukunftsorientierte Unternehmen mit dem in seiner Vielschichtigkeit und gleichzeitigen Fachexpertise einmaligen Netzwerk der Neonyt zusammen. Die involvierten Unternehmen – im Januar sind dies die Otto Group, das Einkaufszentrum Bikini Berlin und das EU Projekt TCBL (Textile and Clothing Business Labs) – treten als sogenannte Challenge-Hosts auf und geben eine spezifische Fragestellung in die Neonyt-Community. Innerhalb von 48 Stunden werden Prototyp-Lösungen für die aufgeworfenen Probleme erarbeitet und den Challenge-Hosts zur weiteren Interpretation übergeben.
 
Um lösungsorientiertes Arbeiten und ein hochqualitatives Ergebnis zu garantieren, hat Sourcebook, die den Thinkathon im Auftrag der Messe Frankfurt organisieren, schon im Vorfeld sechs multidisziplinäre Kleingruppenteams gebildet. Diese nehmen sich unter der professionellen Anleitung eines Coaches sowie eines Knowledge Partners mit Design-Thinking-Methoden jeweils einem Task an, so dass jedem Challenge Host am 16. Januar 2019 zwei komplett unterschiedlich entstandene Lösungswege präsentiert werden.
 
Die 40 Teilnehmer wurden aus mehr als 120 Bewerbungen und über 50 weiteren Netzwerk-Nominees ausgewählt. Sie kommen aus insgesamt 19 Ländern, darunter Indien, die USA, Japan, Ghana sowie Israel, Frankreich, Großbritannien und Deutschland. Die interdisziplinären Teams setzen sich mit Experten aus so diversen Bereichen wie Forschung, Entwicklung, Akademia, Beratung, Gestaltung und Business Development äußerst breit zusammen. Im Old Smithies Dizzle, einer alten Scheune im Herzen Berlins, arbeiten sie zwei Tage im System-Thinking-Format. Ihre Lösungskonzepte präsentieren sie den Challenge Hosts am Ende der Workshoptage hinter verschlossenen Türen und stellen sie dem Publikum der Fashionsustain Konferenz am 16. Januar 2019 vor.
 
Mit der Otto Group, Bikini Berlin und TCBL repräsentieren die diesjährigen Challenge Hosts die kontemporären Modeaspekte Circularity, Consumer Empowerment, Experience Retail und Short Runs / Industry 4.0. In Challenge #1 – The Circular Experience – fragt die Otto Group wie das Konzept der Kreislaufwirtschaft für ihre Kunden zugänglicher, ansprechender und greifbarer zu machen ist. Challenge Host #2 – Bikini Berlin – fragt unter dem Titel „The Future of Retail – for Good“: Wie können Einkaufszentren in einem Zeitalter, in dem Nachhaltigkeit zum Schlüsselfaktor wird, das Einkaufserlebnis so verändern, dass Kunden eingebunden und aktiviert werden? „Sustainable Short Runs“ – Challenge #3 und Host TCBL suchen nach Ansätzen für eine Kartierung europäischer Fertigungskapazitäten für nachhaltiges Nearshoring, Kleinserienfertigung und kurze Lieferzeiten. Challenge Hosts der zwei Thinkathons des Jahres 2018 waren: Fashion Council Berlin, Hugo Boss, KPMG, Microsoft HoloLens, Techtextil/Texprocess und Zalando.

Building on the previous editions’ themes of digitalization of manufacturing processes and the adoption of Industry 4.0 principles, this year’s presentations focused on the value creation enabled by leveraging manufacturing data. A showcase for the innovative applications Lectra is developing based on Industry 4.0 principles, the company’s trade gathering demonstrated how disruptive new technologies are enhancing the onboard experience while reorganizing the automotive interiors supply chain.

Several guest speakers provided insight into the ways industry megatrends are impacting the automotive cockpit of the future. As motorized vehicles become increasingly autonomous, connected and electrified, cementing their place in the shared mobility landscape, suppliers must now devise new strategies to achieve profitable growth. Traditional business models are losing ground to cross-functional collaboration partnerships, making it even more challenging to compete in the fast-moving connected, shared economy.
“It is disruptive for the entire automotive supply chain,” remarks Nathalie Saint Martin, Vice President, Group Purchasing, Faurecia. “We are all learning to evolve together and enhance the added value to our end-customers. The level of collaboration we are now seeing among suppliers is unprecedented.”

Other keynote speeches included market research consultancy Frost & Sullivan’s analysis of automotive trends in the data-driven economy, Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) specialist Bureau Veritas’ vision of data protection for automotive and a presentation of industry insights firm WardsAuto’s selection of top 10 best vehicle interiors of 2018.
The event enables a diverse array of supply chain players in automotive interiors to gather with their peers. "Events like this one are a great opportunity to talk face-to-face with other suppliers about industry-wide challenges,” notes Claus Lattner, Director Engineering, Process Management, CoC Cut Sew Wrap Global, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors. “It is not often we find ourselves in the same room to talk about consumer perception and the sustainability of leather, for instance."

“The event provided a great opportunity to interact with suppliers who have a direct impact on innovation in interior design and manufacturing,” said John Sousanis, Managing Director of Wards Intelligence.
For Javier Garcia, Senior Vice-President, Automotive Sales, Lectra, bringing together the automotive leather community is especially important as it rises to new business challenges stemming from continually changing consumer habits and the digitalization of manufacturing processes. “Connectivity and occupant comfort are increasing the amount of high-tech content in automotive interiors, but the up-market appeal of leather makes it a constant,” states Javier Garcia. “By fostering exchange, Lectra is doing its part to help the automotive leather ecosystem evolve to meet new consumer expectations.”

Lectra, the technological partner for companies using fabrics and leather, put theory into practice at its recent fashion event by unveiling their latest 4.0 Cutting Room to more than 100 privileged industry professionals.

“Fashion Goes Digital” drew industry stakeholders and market experts from 20 countries, who gathered at Lectra’s International Advanced Technology Center (IATC) in Bordeaux-Cestas, France, to examine the real-life application of digitalization in fashion.

While the topic of digitalization served as a backdrop for the event, there was a recurring theme at the forefront: fashion companies need Industry 4.0 technology and support in order to be more precise in meeting the evolving needs of their digitally savvy consumers.
Nick Chiarelli, Client Partner of Foresight Factory, shed light on new business opportunities for fashion, Nora Kühner, founder of Nora Kühner Fashion Design Consulting, used her designer perspective to decode the digital future of product development, and Fabrizio Fantini, founder of Evo Pricing, showed participants how machine learning could help fashion companies predict consumer demand and avoid waste.

“While speaking about the future challenges and trends in fashion and luxury, the trend now is to use analytics to drive the entire production process,” highlighted Stephen Taylor, Principal Director of Kurt Salmon.

Waruna Tennakoon, General Manager of Group Cutting, Brandix, and Ajith Perera General Manager of Mathliya Plant, MAS Kreeda, also shared their Lectra customer experience. Based in Sri Lanka, both companies have established themselves as the country’s largest apparel exporters, with Brandix specializing in producing intimate and activewear, and MAS Kreeda in sportswear.

“Thanks to the digital revolution, consumers are now more specific in their demands. This will cause a shift in mass manufacturing where there will be smaller-volume orders coming in at a faster rate. As a result, manufacturing models have to be more agile in the immediate future,” explained Ajith Perera, “I am happy to see that Lectra is already spearheading this change by providing us with the necessary technology to help us meet market demand.”

There was no better time to put digitalization into context than during “Fashion Goes Digital”.
VIP guests got a sneak preview of the brand new, fully automated cutting room solution for fashion and apparel. Lectra’s Cutting Room 4.0 is an embodiment of Lectra’s commitment to empowering its customers with the best solutions to thrive in this new digital era. This avant-garde technology leverages industry 4.0 principles to provide greater agility, throughput, cost efficiency and in particular scalability in order to respond seamlessly to small batches orders and shorter lead times.

Jean-Yves Collet, CEO of Treize Roches Couture, a high-end French womenswear manufacturer, provided a testimonial on why his company chose to be one of the first to adopt this new solution. He explained how Lectra’s latest technology would help Treize Roches speed up their artisanal production process to bring products faster to market.

“When we discussed the possibility of a made-to-order production project, we could really foresee the benefits both in terms of quality and productivity. Industry 4.0 solutions do not yet exist in garment manufacturing. This is why we have decided to develop an Industry 4.0 cutting room. This will allow us, in the preparatory stages to automate the processes as much as possible and improve quality, productivity and training time.”

“We have unveiled our strategy last year where we have identified Industry 4.0 and digitalization as our key drivers. Our goal for this event is to show that we are, indeed, living and breathing Industry 4.0 and we do have what it takes to help our customers succeed in this era. Our latest cutting room 4.0 shows that we are not just talking about the future of fashion anymore, we are living in it right now as we speak,” concluded Céline Choussy Bedouet, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Lectra.

Technology propelled by Industry 4.0 brings new opportunities for the fashion industry

  • Lectra – ESCP Europe ‘Fashion & Technology’ Chair round-table event hears panelists emphasize the need for fashion companies to embrace Industry 4.0.

Paris, February 27, 2018 – Lectra, the technological partner for companies using fabrics and leather, the French business school ESCP Europe and their joint ‘Fashion & Technology’ Chair explored the impact of Industry 4.0 on fashion’s value chain during a recent insightful round table discussion at ESCP Europe’s London campus.
For the participants Robert Diamond, Founder and CEO, Fernbrook Partners; Dan Hartley, Global Head of Digital Commerce, AllSaints; Laëtitia Hugé, Vice-President, Product Marketing, Lectra; Pierre Mercier, Senior Partner and Managing Director, Boston Consulting Group; and Evelthon Vassilou, CEO, Alison Hayes, there was consensus. Industry 4.0 represents unparalleled opportunities to take the fashion industry forward.

Paris, February 27, 2018 – Lectra, the technological partner for companies using fabrics and leather, the French business school ESCP Europe and their joint ‘Fashion & Technology’ Chair explored the impact of Industry 4.0 on fashion’s value chain during a recent insightful round table discussion at ESCP Europe’s London campus.
For the participants Robert Diamond, Founder and CEO, Fernbrook Partners; Dan Hartley, Global Head of Digital Commerce, AllSaints; Laëtitia Hugé, Vice-President, Product Marketing, Lectra; Pierre Mercier, Senior Partner and Managing Director, Boston Consulting Group; and Evelthon Vassilou, CEO, Alison Hayes, there was consensus. Industry 4.0 represents unparalleled opportunities to take the fashion industry forward.

From brand to manufacturer, panelists from across the value chain emphasized the necessity for the industry to embrace the alliance between man and machines to leverage massive benefits, from quicker decision-making to cost-reduction.
Exploring the advantages of Industry 4.0 technology, Evelthon Vassilou commented: “Interpreting the data of what is, and isn’t, selling should help to speed up decisions. You can react very quickly across the entire supply chain, and either stop producing something unsuccessful or ramp up production if successful. Data and data analytics is not sufficient, to succeed this also requires a high degree of trust and integration between retailers and suppliers.”

“It’s about using technology to deliver continuous improvement in everyday business,” said Robert Diamond. “People are not good at making a large volume of repeatable decisions with many different data inputs”. Identifying where machines, and where people, bring value is an important part of embracing Industry 4.0. “If the business decision, or the outcome of the resolution tomorrow, is pretty much the same as what happened yesterday, then there is a chance for machine learning to help improve the situation.”
For Pierre Mercier, technology propelled by Industry 4.0 is disrupting former sources of competitive advantage, “forcing companies to rethink how they want to compete in their respective industries, and how to use data to compete differently. The common denominator in the fashion ecosystem is that everyone is facing the opportunity for a step change and need to figure out where to double down and accelerate their transformation.”

“Agility and flexibility are increasingly important for fashion players. Cutting-edge technology is supporting the fashion industry as it steps into the 4.0 era, ensuring businesses have the right solutions in their own ecosystems, to effectively harness the right data to make the right decisions,” stated Laëtitia Hugé.

At UK fashion brand AllSaints, valuable data harnessed from the net promoter score is paramount for their business. “We take customer feedback very seriously and we use it as a framework for our internal roadmap - from a tech and development point of view, through to design and fit, the customer is at the heart of everything we do,” stated Dan Hartley. In addition, he underlined that using technology across communications “will be huge going forward for AllSaints. From supply chain to store teams, we aim to use a cloud-based system that works within our own eco-system, complementing our agile model.”
The round table was moderated by the co-director of Lectra-ESCP Europe ‘Fashion and Technology’ Chair Valérie Moatti.
