Starting points for metrology within Industry 4.0

Objectives: Producing quality and decreasing overhead costs

The objective of all activities will be to produce quality and as a consequence to reduce overhead costs. This results in the following approaches for machines and instruments within the environment of measuring technology:

1. Automation of components aims to reduce inspection costs.
2. Having measuring processes under control with the objective to reduce inspection costs.
3. Unlimited communication means networked systems respectively “Cloud Monitoring”.
4. Have a look into the machineLocal intelligence enables a preventive status monitoring.
5. Integrated systems  are networked units with sensors for self-monitoring.
