Common Use Cases

Facilitate flexible but accurate machine setups

With intuitive, interactive instructions by their side, your workers can accurately setup industrial machinery. Tools are quickly changed and machine programs easily uploaded. Your most experienced people are freed from continuous fire-fighting and can focus on continuous improvement and training. Your entire operation runs smoothly and flexibly.

Reduce quality errors in a complex assembly

You have identified that a specific assembly process keeps resulting in quality errors. Using Microsoft Word, you break it into a sequence of steps. You attach dedicated video instructions to the most error-prone ones. Once stored on your file server, these instructions are immediately available to your workers. They are now intuitively guided and errors avoided.

No, our solutions always require an ERP interface. The reason is simple: We want you to benefit maximally and for your workers to think of the solution as more helpful than paper. Without an ERP interface, a solution would be slower, less accurate and, if necessary, just another parallel system. Our solutions are designed to make your ERP more powerful. Learn more about our interfaces: ERP connectors.

Actyx supports various hardware devices proven in industrial practice and expands the hardware portfolio at regular intervals. The solution design requires hardware from the portfolio. You cannot use your own hardware, otherwise we will not be able to ensure smooth operation. We also want to reduce the complexity and investment costs for you as much as possible. You can view our hardware selection here: supported hardware.

We’re not going to charge you for a single man day. From your side, we need minimal resources to coordinate processes or data models. An installation of an Actyx solution, including the implementation of the interface, takes up to 8 weeks. To learn more about timeline or resource requirements, contact us.

Thanks to modern technology, we can always monitor the health of all components of your installation and incorporate configuration and software adjustments. The Actyx software is standardized across all installations. This means that all customers receive coordinated updates and benefit from further developments of the apps.

No. The technology architecture is decentralized, that is, all components communicate directly with each other in a peer-to-peer fashion. There is no classic Client/Server architecture or dependencies of central components. This significantly increases robustness in terms of outages and performance.
This means that if the Internet goes down, the solution will continue reliably, we will only not be able to add any updates.

Of course, we have 24×7 support. If you are an Actyx customer, you can find the support here: support.actyx.io

Generally, we do not start any solution installation if we cannot estimate ROI after less than 6 months. For us, it is important for you to benefit starting on Day-1. CIP should be seen as an indirect, added value for future improvements. If you have more questions about our success delivery model, contact us.
