Sponsored by our partner in the region, DPS Software, and in the framework of its biggest corporate event, the DPS Forum, RPS carried out presentations on the digital future of industrial companies in Germany that took place in the forum “smart3Dfactory”

More than 450 representatives of important industrial companies participated in the Schwabenlandhalle auditorium in Fellbach, at north of Stuttgart. They were able to learn firsthand the proposal of Ibermatica in digitization solutions for the industrial sector. The sessions also presented real experiences of RPS clients in Germany belonging to various industrial sectors.

After the welcome and a multitudinous breakfast, the main presentation of the products and services of our distributor, DPS Software, was started in the main auditorium, where RPS already had a prominent role. In the words of Manfred Gravius, general manager of the DPS group , RPS plays as the base and integrated platform on which a good part of its objective is based: to consolidate itself as the largest global provider of PLM solutions in the country.

Subsequently, the different product-specific work sessions were initiated, with RPS being the protagonist of the forum specialized in ERP whose main demonstration lines were:

a) Intelligent Integration. From engineering to resource management

Placing the 3D design in the center of the user interface, DPS showed in this session the bi-directional integration between CAD, production planning and project management in RPS. Attendees were able to experience how design, project management, purchasing and manufacturing go hand in hand and act within the same platform in RPS.

b) Efficient production planning

In this session, Münch GmbH customer of RPS, gave its testimony as a user of our solution from a real perspective explaining from its point of view the most obvious advantages that the implementation has brought. At the same session DPS showed in detail and through real examples based on the connected scale model we built for the occasion, how with our integrated solutions we address the challenges of planning and replanning of resources, monitoring of real production and plant data capture.

c) Intelligent management of after-sales services.

From the perspective of the machine manufacturers and its user industries, DPS showed how, thanks to the deployment of connected machines, both types of companies could benefit in relation to the service or the maintenance respectively. DPS demonstrated how the sensors installed in the machines provide information on performance and potential problems in real time and how this information can be used by the internal maintenance team or by the manufacturer.

The scale model and its digital twin over RPS, in which various productions, incidents and problems were simulated; and the new RPS interface component, 3D Viewer, which allows its users to display data and interaction with the ERP through the 3D model of pieces and sets, were the main attractions of the sessions. The professionals who came to the presentations could thus experiment on a real model how RPS could revolutionize its production in a future, future that for RPS is already the present.
