Codecentric and Actyx forge strategic partnership for the digital factory of the future
The codecentric AG has agreed on a strategic partnership with the Munich-based company Actyx AG. The goal of the collaboration is to transform the European factory landscape through modern software solutions. Thanks to the combination of Actyx technology and codecentric development expertise, factory processes will be digitized within a few weeks - making long, risky IT projects a thing of the past.
Actyx offers a software platform that makes factory software simple. Using a novel programming approach, apps for digitizing processes can be implemented quickly and effortlessly. The result: lean and efficient production.
Applications on the Actyx platform are diverse: solutions for increasing transparency about machine utilization or order progress are just as possible as interactive worker assistance solutions, networking driverless transport vehicles with production or applications for integrating robots, conveyor belts and production machines.
Codecentric is the partner that realizes solutions from concept to productive system. Codecentric analyzes processes, defines customer requirements and solves them with software systems. Companies in the manufacturing industry thus benefit from a combination of robust industry standards on the one hand and modern and fast software development on the other.
"With codecentric as an integration partner and the innovative Actyx platform for digitizing the store floor, IT systems in manufacturing can be rethought: why wait years to implement MES software when you could have your most critical manufacturing processes digitized in just a few weeks?" says Kai Lichtenberg, Head of Industrial Solutions at codecentric, about the resulting collaboration.
"With codecentric, we have gained one of the most successful and innovative IT companies in Europe as a partner. Codecentric is very strong in understanding customer problems precisely and solving them incredibly fast with software. Combined with our platform, which brings speed, reliability and scalability, factories can digitize their processes easier than ever before," comments Max Fischer, co-founder of Actyx, on the cooperation.
Not only can Actyx solutions be integrated into existing machines, plants and IT systems. They are also expandable and scalable and can be developed within a few week
