From a factory to the Smart Factory
Products & Solutions in the field of Smart Factory
In the age of Industry 4.0, many companies dream of transforming their factories into real Smart Factories. Processes are to be digitized and efficiency increased by means of suitable manufacturing IT. We, the experts at MPDV, are convinced: The Smart Factory is not just a vision, but your guarantee for more productivity and competitiveness.

What is a Smart Factory?
In a Smart Factory, intelligent production plants and logistic systems manage themselves. The basis of a Smart Factory is the intelligent networking of all systems involved in the production process. Systems communicate with each other, exchange information on the manufacturing process and react automatically to changed production scenarios. To make this work, manufacturing IT is needed to process the collected data in real time. After all, this is the only way to avoid bottlenecks and make optimum use of resources.
People play a central role in the Smart Factory. Their task is to optimize processes and to control workflows. Manufacturing IT supports people in identifying the need for action and making targeted decisions. On top of that, artificial intelligence (AI) methods are used to process large amounts of data and identify patterns. Manufacturing IT provides evaluations based on knowledge gained and predicts events or results. These predictions allow people to take action in good time.

We create Smart Factories
- We have more than 45 years of experience and the motivation to turn your vision of the Smart Factory into reality.
- We know the market and design products with a focus on its requirements.
- We have a clear vision of the self-regulating factory and create real added value for our users.
It’s a match
Manufacturing IT often consists of different functions and systems that have to work together flexibly. To achieve this, extensive interoperability is needed. With the Manufacturing Integration Platform (MIP), we ensure that both our solutions such as HYDRA X and the Advanced Planning and Scheduling System (APS) FEDRA as well as the solutions of other suppliers can interact on a common data basis. As a result, there are no media disruption - but instead a common, integrative interface.
What our customers say about us and our solutions in the Smart Factory
Since we started working with MPDV, we have the good feeling that we are consistently on the path to the Smart Factory.
The solutions from MPDV are well received by our employees on the shop floor and in management. You can see right away what's going on and where action is needed.
Without manufacturing IT from MPDV, we would no longer be able to produce. For us, producing without manufacturing IT is like driving a car without a seat belt.
Thanks to MPDV's solutions, we finally know where we can improve. It's hard to believe how high our waste used to be.
Sure, it helps to buy more machines and hire more staff - but it helps even more to use existing resources efficiently. With manufacturing IT from MPDV, that works out great.
