The WCS ensures direct communication of external systems with Aucotec's platform Engineering Base (EB). Thus ERP and EDM/PDM systems forward their data directly to the business logic of EB's multi-layer architecture. Information can be exchanged at any time, EB's data model is always updated with external additions and can display these changes without additional user interaction.
This direct M2M communication is one of the preconditions to excelling in engineering for Industry 4.0. The Internet of Things, thus the required interconnection, cannot be achieved without Web technology. The WCS uses global standards which do not add to IT's workload. Predictive maintenance is also convenient and secure with the WCS, without a detour via client applications.
