Integration is the art of harmonizing hardware, software, and equipment systems in order to optimize, visualize, and automate manufacturing processes.
Automation is the art of transforming manually performed business activities into processes that are orchestrated and controlled through software solutions.
Optimization is the art of maximizing manufacturing efficiency, throughput, OEE, yield, and quality by monitoring, analyzing, and iteratively tuning manufacturing processes.
Visualization is the art of providing transparency into manufacturing, engineering, and supply chain operations in order to enable continuous optimization.
Migration is the art of exchanging critical business processes and IT systems without disrupting manufacturing operations.
A white paper is an authoritative report or guide that informs readers concisely about a complex issue and presents the issuing body's philosophy on the matter.
Best practices documents describe manufacturing IT solutions which are accepted within the manufacturing industry as being correct or most effective.
Previously recorded webinars provide in-depth discussion regarding specific manufacturing topics and solutions.
Demos are brief videos that showcase a specific aspect of a manufacturing topic or solution.
Presentations and recordings from past events hosted or attended by SYSTEMA are available to view or download.
Case studies are up-close and detailed examinations of challenges faced within a real-world manufacturing environment along with proven solutions.
Data sheets provide critical pieces of information, such as features and technical details, related to SYSTEMA’s products and services.
Blogs are informal discussions or informational pieces related to manufacturing optimization topics, solutions, and SYSTEMA-related news.
… and what a year it was indeed! We celebrated SYSTEMA’s 25th anniversary and 25 years of automation software and consulting services, continuous growth, new technologies and reinventing ourselves.
In 2018 we hired 26 regular employees including 16 in Dresden, 5 in Regensburg, 1 in Israel, and 4 in the United States. The US employees are receiving training at the SYSTEMA headquarters for 2 years before returning to the SYSTEMA USA office located in Bend, Oregon.
To support our expansion plans, we partnered with the Wachstumsfonds Mittelstand Sachsen (Growth Fund for SME Saxony) and defined our strategies to extend Dresden offices and support founding future subsidiaries over the next 5–7 years.
In March, we launched our new website and, as one of our contacts rightfully pointed out, we finally reached the 21st century. The website has been one of our main focal points in 2018 and will continue to be in the coming years. It will perpetually evolve as a platform to demonstrate our expertise, showcase our product and service offerings, highlight industry trends and their implications, and share news related to future product development.
As part of our website launch, we also launched a blog dedicated to addressing specific manufacturing challenges related to planning, extending or optimizing your IT and topics related to standardization and automation of manufacturing processes.
As you can see, we are embracing a change and growth mindset at SYSTEMA. This is driven by our continuous desire to provide support, products, and solutions to you, our customers and partners, to help you change and grow your own businesses.
We wish you success and look forward to working with you in the new year.
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy new year
from all of us at SYSTEMA!
