Although production takes place in factories, it is facilitated by networks and cooperation with suppliers. Chain optimization is therefore vital and involves sharing data securely both within the factory itself and between partners. SMITZH is currently developing an open-source data exchange platform and has set up a cyber resilience centre to share knowledge with various companies. If you are looking for the best way to share data, please reach out to us. We would love to work with you.
We can help you address the various research questions you may have:
What could new developments like 5G or blockchain technology mean for your company? | How can I digitize my manufacturing process and which data do I need to collect to make the process smarter? | How can I share data with various customers and suppliers if we are all using different software or systems? | How can I prevent vendor lock-in? | Can 5G be used in large factory spaces that are full of machines and have metal roofs? | Is blockchain technology an appropriate and affordable solution for sharing data securely within my supply chain? | Who owns this data and how can I ensure trust? | How can new and existing machines work together in an industrial Internet of Things network?
We are here to partner with you to discover the right solutions.
