Industry 4.0 combines digital manufacturing with intelligent assets and the Industrial Internet of Things – IIoT. This means intelligent, interconnected assets such as machines, objects and products that communicate and optimize autonomously along the entire value chain are the main drivers of the digital revolution in the supply chain. Industry 4.0 will radically change production and alter the way humans will work with equipment. It offers higher autonomy and tailored information provided to workers from smart devices to support decisions.
The SAP Digital Manufacturing Cloud is a real-time data and analytics-based manufacturing execution system (MES) in the cloud. It is part of SAP’s Industry 4.0 portfolio, focusing on the execution, analysis, and integration of manufacturing processes. Extending the on-premise digital manufacturing solution portfolio, it brings in the following:

Digital manufacturing is the new paradigm of a fully integrated value chain from component manufacturing to final assembly, blurring traditional boundaries. Keep up the pace in the global race for innovation.
Industrial IoT applications already offer considerable added value as stand-alone solutions. Nevertheless, they only unfold their full potential when they are integrated into central supply chain solutions and a broad IT landscape. IoT solutions are not a substitute, but they add value to existing supply chain solutions, including planning, manufacturing, warehousing and transport processes.
In many companies today, asset data is collected and processed in separate silos. The actual condition of an asset is unknown. This drives up inefficiencies and downtimes through maintenance not well-coordinated with production.
With SAP S/4HANA Asset Management, SAP offers a solution for the analysis, planning and execution of maintenance in companies. Many terms are used in parallel to maintenance, such as SAP Asset Management, SAP Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), SAP Maintenance Management or SAP Plant Maintenance (PM). They all can be grouped under “Asset Management”. SAP S/4HANA Asset Management focuses on four main topics:
SAP Intelligent Asset Management combines collaborative asset intelligence, planning, prediction and simulation to equipment operations and maintenance. It extends the SAP S/4HANA Asset Management portfolio with mainly cloud-based applications such as:
Combing various data sources such as sensors but also business information in ERP, asset management, and customer relationship management, and leveraging this insight to predict equipment malfunctions and optimize resource management.
