ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING

Solutions that drive knowledge democratization and support decision intelligence

Image

Use cases

metaphactory helps you unlock the value of your data by enabling citizen access to consumable knowledge and driving digital transformation

Image

CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT

Product managers, support engineers, technical planners and technical maintenance specialists can maintain configurations, create targeted customer solutions, and forecast materials and parts required for production.

Image

MANUFACTURING PLANNING & EXECUTION

Smart manufacturing solutions support human manufacturing planners by providing suggestions for valid production plans and allow to automate the setup and preparation of machines and route products to suitable machinery.

Image

BILL OF MATERIALS

Intelligent bill of material solutions allow to track customer-specific product configurations, plan the fullfillment for new orders, and determine the spare parts required for maintenance and service requests.

Image

MATERIALS SCIENCE

A one-stop knowledge hub supplies high-quality answers about existing materials in a timely manner and supports engineers in developing and introducing new materials for production.

Image

DITIAL TWIN

Virtual representations of buildings, factories, production facilities or IT landscapes help users to monitor existing assets, predict potential downtimes, and reduce maintenace efforts.

Image

SPARE PARTS MANAGEMENT

Spare parts and technical documentation catalogs can be maintained efficiently, resulting in higher productivity and increased customer satisfaction.

Customers in Engineering & Manufacturing

Challenges

in mastering the complexity of data

Product and machine configurations or customer-specific catalogs and maintenance packages are available as heterogeneous (analog or digital) representations and integration / standardization is cumbersome.

Information from a variety of sources needs to be connected at the "right" level of granularity to support the integration and representation of data required for automating processes and decisions.

Expert domain knowledge is today locked in the engineers' minds and, even when shared with others, is not machine-interpretable.

Low data literacy is slowing down data-driven transformation across the enterprise.

End users struggle to extract meaningful insights from data and often require the help of IT departments.

Analyses are not reusable when business use cases and user needs change.

Solutions

that empower end users

metaphactory supports the process of making data FAIR and allows you to build a cross-data source and cross-departmental data fabric for business users that helps drive digital transformation.

The explicit semantics encoded in Knowledge Graphs help to implement automated explanation techniques that deliver transparency and ensure trust in automated decision making processes.

metaphactory allows you to model domain concepts and relations based on specific business needs and in a machine- and human-interpretable format.

metaphactory's out-of-the-box search and discovery capabilities allow end users to immediately extract knowledge from data.

metaphactory streamlines IT processes and allows end users to consume data on-demand, intuitively and in context.

With metaphactory, data becomes reusable so you can easily cater to new business needs, new use cases or new business users.

Success stories

How does it work?

Create

Knowledge Graphs with business users

metaphactory commoditizes Knowledge Graphs, making the technology and its benefits accessible not only to knowledge graph experts but also to business users and domain experts. It supports the process of making data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) and enables a cross-departmental Knowledge Graph creation process where all relevant stakeholders can:

  1. Model core domain concepts (e.g., motors, gears, switches, power supplies and controllers, etc.) and relations based on specific business needs and in a machine- and human-interpretable format
  2. Map existing internal and publicly available data to the domain model
  3. Describe data sources and document provenance and lineage to build data reliability

Build

Knowledge Graph apps rapidly

Through its low-code approach built on a model-driven template mechanism and a rich set of ready-made Web components, metaphactory allows you to quickly build an intuitive user experience on top of your Knowledge Graph to:

  • Search, filter and drill down
  • Discover, visualize and explore relations
  • Build insightful dashboards
  • Share results with colleagues
  • Add and edit data

As things change, metaphactory allows you to add new datasets, new business-oriented data definitions and new concepts to support new data domains, new user groups and new projects.
