iTAC and Brose develop Industry 4.0 solutions for automated SMT production



What saving potential and process optimizations can automation bring to SMT production? This and other questions are being addressed by the MES/MOM specialist iTAC Software AG in a pilot project for the automotive supplier Brose. The use cases are based on an IIoT platform with edge solutions from iTAC with the goal of increasing cycle times, avoiding errors and creating more value.

E-mobility, autonomous driving, and shared mobility – these and other developments are currently changing the market. As requirements continue to grow, the degree of digitalization in factories is also increasing.

To continue to play a leading role in the rapidly changing automotive sector, Brose is focusing on transparency and a high level of digitalization in its production. One goal is to make data-based decisions. "Data analysis is the basis for error prevention, targeted actions, and predictions for the future. To enable Brose to fully exploit the potential of the available data, we are currently collaborating on a pilot project. We are contributing our expertise in the development and deployment of infrastructure and machine connectivity. Brose has the production data expertise to develop the corresponding algorithms," says Peter Bollinger.

MES/MOM specialist iTAC supports Brose with its IIoT platform including the iTAC.SMT.Edge machine integration platform powered by Cogiscan, which serves to standardize and centralize factory level data. The subsequent real-time data analysis and further processing is handled by the iTAC.IIoT.Edge software.

"The IIoT platform and edge solutions offer a broad range of actionable solutions. The aim of all the applications we will be rolling out on this scalable basis is to enable Brose to adapt to the volatile market in an agile manner and produce with the highest quality," states Peter Bollinger.

MOM from iTAC for adaptability in production28.6.2023 12:18:04 EEST | Press release

Software is the engine for modern, digital production processes. In order to master the challenges of the future, isolated solutions and technical barriers must be eliminated. What is needed are end-to-end processes through holistic manufacturing management systems such as the iTAC.MOM.Suite from iTAC Software AG ( This modular solution makes value chains in different production types and industries transparent, plannable and controllable in real time. And it covers everything from single-item to series and mass production. The microservice architecture enables flexible and scalable use of individual functionalities. iTAC's MES/MOM is therefore designed to meet the requirements of both traditional industrial sectors and rapidly growing industries such as battery production.

Closed Loop: Simulating, planning and managing the digital factory24.5.2023 15:54:45 EEST | Press release

The factory of the future is digital and relies on integrated, rather than isolated, solutions. The software companies DUALIS GmbH IT Solution ( and iTAC Software AG ( developed a holistic digitalization approach for greater efficiency, flexibility and quality in manufacturing. In the closed loop model, simulation, APS and MES/MOM are closely interlinked and interact with each other. This means, for example, that manufacturing processes can be optimized end-to-end. At the same time, costs and risks can be minimized.

iTAC Software is a Leader in Gartner® Magic Quadrant™5.5.2023 12:39:56 EEST | Press release

What are the Strengths and Cautions of MES/MOM vendors? Gartner states that the “Magic Quadrant gives enterprise technology shoppers an unbiased assessment of how well competing providers are performing against Gartner’s market view and is supplemented by validated user reviews.”1 The MES/MOM vendor, iTAC Software ( is positioned as a Leader this year in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems.

End-to-end digitalization in production: iTAC presents MOM system at HANNOVER MESSE24.3.2023 08:05:14 EET | Press release

Montabaur. The demands for agility and efficiency in manufacturing are increasing. Simultaneously, quality must be maintained at a high level. iTAC Software AG and its parent company Dürr have the answer: a modular all-in-one solution for the planning, execution, control, monitoring, optimization and predictive analysis of manufacturing. The Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) system is based on end-to-end networking and digitalization. Another special feature is the microservices architecture to provide functionalities tailored to specific requirements. The company will be demonstrating the advantages of this solution at HANNOVER MESSE (hall15, booth E34).

iTAC shows how manufacturing can benefit from the Artificial Internet of Things13.2.2023 14:35:38 EET | Press release

Montabaur. Combining AI with IoT (AIoT) opens up new potential for creating value from data. The focus is on collecting, analyzing and interpreting data from machines and sensors with the help of an MES/MOM. In this way, predictions can be derived and self-learning processes can be developed. The MES/MOM specialist iTAC ( demonstrates the possibilities for implementation.
