PIA Industrial App Suite

Published on Nov 6, 2019


The continuous optimization of the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) remains a main target in producing industries. Focusing on these challenges PIA developed the PIA Industrial App Suite, which offers powerful smart applications as well as storage of production and process data, all seamlessly connected to MindSphere®, the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens. MindSphere connects products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling businesses to harness the wealth of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) with advanced analytics.

The PIA solution monitors the health of the plant assets and processes and analyzes the historical and online data from the production lines. This allows the identification of correlation of events, which could lead to process blockage and other types of unexpected downtime, therefore helping prevent such problems proactively and thus leading to optimal asset utilization.

"The collaboration between MindSphere and PIA leads to a comprehensive portfolio of apps."

PIA Automation connects assembly machines as well as EOL (End-of-Line) testers to a central IIoT platform for processing and analyzing. The result is that the customers can efficiently manage, control and optimize their connected smart factories. MindSphere and the PIA Industrial App Suite help to face these challenges. The strategic integration between MindSphere and PIA Automation therefore helps deliver new production insights and measurable results.

From November 26 to 28 at SPS Drive fair in Nuremberg, PIA Automation will be presenting on the Siemens booth the PIA Industrial App Suite, running on MindSphere.
