Manufacturing plants and factories comprise a large number of machines and plant sections. From an information technology point of view, these are stand-alone units because there is no general overview of the factory and no common database to evaluate, control or optimise the production.

A factory control system is the perfect solution. It combines the manufacturing plants, ancillary plants and house technology in a uniform visualisation, thus improving the responsiveness, helping avoid downtimes and increasing the productivity. The problem here is that all plant sections have autonomous control systems, often from different manufacturers.

BNA has far-reaching expertise in designing factory control systems. Our IT competence and command of a large number of bus systems and interfaces enable us to connect machines for data communication, establish joint data pools and supply a factory control system with the relevant information.
