Digitalization opens up a whole new range of possibilities to create new user- and business-oriented services that harness the power of customer understanding, make the entire product lifecycle transparent, and enable the cost-efficient manufacturing of ever more customized products.
An opportunity for developing a new business model can open up, for example, through production process optimization or through the development of product lifecycle management. When enterprise resource planning, production process, and product management are under control, it is easy to use, update, and share information quickly. This way, you can expand and develop your business while your core business continues to run smoothly.

Is the product management of my company strong enough to allow us to transform our business model from subcontracting to manufacturing our own products? How about lifecycle business – could my company move from manufacturing business over to lifecycle business?

FROM MANUFACTURING TO SERVICE BUSINESS
The design and manufacturing of equipment have formed the backbone of my business. Recently I have started to think about expanding the business to also provide service and maintenance during the in-use phase of our products. This way, I would also get the opportunity to learn from our customers about the use and functionality of our products. The customers have already expressed their interest in such services; upon acquiring new equipment, many customers would also like to agree on their maintenance.
The manufacturing process generates a great amount of data, which forms a ready basis for your service business. The device cards created during the manufacturing process form your installed base, which will be the target of your service business. The enterprise resource planning system collects information on the properties of the manufactured devices. This is linked to parts list data of individual devices and, for example, the results of completed test runs. You can monitor the profits, costs and margin of your service business by customer and by device.
”An enterprise planning system is vital for the management of items alone.”

ONLINE STORE FOR SPARE PARTS AND ACCESSORIES
The revenue of my company has increased, and our product sales are going strong. Products are delivered across Europe, now also through our growing retailer network. In addition to the actual products, my company offers an extensive selection of accessories, spare parts and intercompany products that could well be sold through an online store. However, to do that, all our product data would need to be in tip-top shape, and unfortunately the maintenance of the data is very time-consuming and burdensome. We need a solution for the management of our product data, and fast – I want to create new business from selling spare parts and accessories!

INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION OF UNIQUE PRODUCTS WITH MACHINE VISION
As Production Manager, I’ve spend sleepless nights fretting about how our product offering could better meet the changing needs of our customers. Could we create tailored solutions for different customers – without slowing down our production and without making it overly complicated? What could digitalization and IoT do for me – would they allow me to find a more efficient and innovative way to use our raw material?
RoimaService Machine Vision’s intelligent sensor fusion enables the careful use of raw material. With a continuous machine vision solution installed on your production line, you can measure all properties related to the critical visual or measurement data of the entire product flow.
The measurement data are linked to the traceability data of an individual product or production batch, or to location- or time-based traceability data.
''This system does exactly what we need. It made producing these kinds of floors possible on an industrial scale.''
