Industrial Internet
of Things (IIoT)

Deploy your business in the cloud with powerful analytics and Industry 4.0 standards.

Where and How Syntax Supports Customers

Building an IIoT environment is a multi-step process that covers different areas. So that customers can get the maximum benefit from the industrial Internet of Things, Syntax is at their side with advice and expertise in all areas:

Networking of Production Facilities

Whether it is retrofitting or a fast data connection via standard interfaces, our digitization experts have technical understanding and extensive industry experience.

Data Analysis

Using the appropriate data points, our specialists create algorithm-based analysis for a detailed and clear picture of all relevant production processes. The customer always has an overview of all information and the current status of systems in real-time.

Predictive Maintenance and Quality

We design IIoT systems that provide our customers with precise predictions, regardless of whether it is about necessary care or increasing the overall quality of products based on the data collected.

Remote Maintenance and Monitoring

Networked machines provide permanent information about their status and any problems after delivery. Our IIoT solutions enable necessary measures to be initiated.

SAP Intelligent Asset Management

Maximize your productivity, improve your company’s operational safety, and reduce your maintenance costs with SAP Intelligent Asset Management (SAP IAM). SAP IAM transforms asset management and brings more intelligence to the supply chain. If you are an asset-centric industry, you can make more informed choices using real-time data and machine learning.

The Advantages of SAP Intelligent Asset Management

Integration and Automation

Processes are implemented through seamless networking with existing SAP systems through the automatic reordering of spare parts with an automated notification.

Uniform Database

SAP Intelligent Asset Management is the central point of asset information. Manufacturers can make the digital twin available to customers, and operators don’t need to search for other data in various portals.

Transparency

With IIoT-based system management, manufacturers and operators can fully understand the machine history, and a digital twin can identify patterns. This is a starting point for improving overall product quality or developing new business models.

Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance has been part of the industrial world since the 1990s. It monitors the performance and condition of equipment during operations to reduce equipment failures. Predictive maintenance monitors the conditions of assets using sensor devices that supply data in real-time and predict when assets require maintenance.

The Advantages of Predictive Maintenance

Many companies rely on solutions from SAP, more precisely on SAP Predictive Asset Insights when it comes to predictive maintenance. The answer emerges from the predecessor SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service. This SAP tool offers users several advantages, including:

Greater Cost Efficiency

Instead of avoidable costs due to failures or preventive maintenance, companies can use SAP Asset Insights to determine the ideal time for care based on data. All machine parts are used until they become a risk of failure due to increased wear and tear.

Improved Supply Chain Logistics

Logistics-oriented just-in-time productions depending on maximum uptime thanks to predictive maintenance.

Just-in-Time Maintenance

Anyone who already knows in advance which part or which employee will be needed soon can plan accordingly.

Increase in Efficiency

Data-based planned and machine-implemented maintenance measures. This is combined with the timely provision of the necessary maintenance resources such as spare parts and equipment. This minimizes downtime and increases efficiency.

Lower Production Costs

Machines that are serviced before thresholds are exceeded are more reliable and produce fewer rejects. This reduces production losses and ensures overall production costs are optimized.

Transportation Costs Are Reduced

Predictive maintenance reduces unplanned downtime and freight costs for special deliveries that may become necessary due to delays in the schedule.

Digitizing Your Manufacturing

Improve visibility of your manufacturing operations while enhancing the efficiency of your front-line workers.

Whether you use SAP Digital Manufacturing or a third-party solution, you don’t have to implement your digital project by yourself. Leverage Syntax’s long heritage in manufacturing to deploy your business in the cloud with powerful analytics and Industry 4.0 standards.

With Syntax’s cloud portal for your customers, you add a new revenue stream and digital services. The portal provides predictive maintenance information, easy customization for specific usage by customers, and a single place to visualize all relevant back-end data.

Industrial IoT with Advanced Analytics

Combining Syntax’s public cloud capabilities and decades of experience in Industrial IoT, we simplify your IT and identify use cases with tangible business value. Syntax provides guidance to enable you to offer new digital services to your customers, create a digital twin, and gain real-time access to your maintenance and performance data.

Syntax IIoT Cloud Portal

Syntax’s cloud portal provides a single point of entry to help you better serve your customers while increasing revenue. Regardless of whether you’re using SAP or another solution, Syntax can help your organization digest millions of data points to improve your industrial IoT device output. Also, in places where you don’t use SAP licenses, you can build an equivalent SAP IIoT solution using Amazon Web Services (AWS) tools.

Values and Benefits of the Syntax Industrial IoT Portal

  • Establish a concrete IoT use case for Industrial Equipment
  • Enable new business models and additional value streams like pay per use
  • Get transparency of installed based and equipment usage
  • Increase after sales revenue (spare parts)
  • Improve customer satisfaction through close collaboration with end-customer
  • Send announcements (i.e. recalls) and alerts to customers
  • 24×7 Remote Monitoring to support increased equipment uptime and productivity
  • Reduce service visits and lower service costs
  • Predict the risk of downtime (“Predictive Maintenance”) and the Process Quality (“Predictive Quality”)
