Modular, based on the latest Web technologies, the range of Q u bes solutions from Creative IT enables industrial companies to reach their goals in terms of responsiveness, competitiveness and lower costs today. Better still: it brings them into a new era, that of the Industry of the Future. A major innovation made in France.
The Q u bes i4 solution is the latest innovation from Creative IT. This is an industrial device (which takes the form of two clustered boxes) located in the factory and whose role is to ensure digital continuity between the company's global information system and flows from production sites (production monitoring functions, machine controllers, connected objects). This architecture ensures real-time synchronization of data with the corporate data center. “ Q u bes i4 thus becomes the backbone of the industrial information system of the future. The solution does not require any IT skills on the production sites; it is delivered with a complete service, from the provision of the material to the maintenance of all the software layers which it integrates, this via an Internet link between the cluster of the customer and the technical center of Creative IT. Updates but also remote interventions are thus facilitated, the customer not having to worry about infrastructure issues. "
In practice, this means that all production flows between Q u bes and machines are managed by the factory local network. In the event of a network outage, the production site can continue to operate its MES between 24 or 48 hours without any loss of data thanks to synchronization.
Q u bes i4 is also and above all the new brick of the Q u bes cloud offer, which will begin marketing in the fall of 2015. It thus makes it possible to meet the growing expectations of companies that are turning to the Cloud, while maintaining private access for security reasons for production applications. All it takes is a web browser to allow the customer to access the various features of the Q u bes application in the Cloud. In each of its factories, a Q u bes i4 cluster is installed to ensure communication with equipment, data feedback and critical MES functions of the plant. All production flows between Q u bes and machines are managed locally. In the event of a network failure, the plant is no longer blocked by IT. “ We are the first to be able to put a complete MES solution in the Cloud with immediate benefits for our customers in terms of flexibility and responsiveness. They will no longer have to worry about infrastructure issues or updates , ”says Philippe Rinaudo, founding president of the company. Like almost all cloud solutions on the market, the pricing model is based on a monthly subscription.
Solutions designed for the Industry of the Future
An initiative of the French Government, the Industry of the Future project aims to encourage and help each industrial company to take a new step in the modernization of its production tool, in particular through digital technology. The Industry of the Future is characterized by highly flexible, environmentally friendly and resource-efficient production, a high degree of interweaving between production processes and the Internet, reduced design times and customized products designed on demand.
“As part of this dynamic, Q u bes makes it possible to make the link between manufactured products, production equipment and remote information systems, including the Internet. This allows manufacturers to consider new areas of performance improvement and also to move towards new business models with customizable and connected products. » Comments the founder of Creative IT. The Q u bes range of solutions is therefore fully in line with this project.
