Register your device in the platform to transfer analog and digital values from buildings, machines, plants or processes into the cloud. Data from integrated sources is transferred continuously as time series and stored in the platform, where it is kept highly availabile for further processing. Raw data and metadata are structured hierarchically according to organizations and assets.
The NEXOCRAFT IoT platform provides the ideal foundation to launch unique analytics applications. Control your production predictively, or digitize your business model with Machine-as-a-Service.
Due to its high-level scalability, our platform automatically adjusts to changing data volumes and business requirements; relying on state-of-the-art IoT Analytics platform architecture. Advanced Machine Learning ensures efficient predictions.
Precise. Reliable. Robust. Hosting in certified data centers in Germany.
The main features of the NEXOCRAFT IoT platform are:
Provisioning, registration, authentication, monitoring and management of devices
- Recording, monitoring, pre-processing and analysis of incoming data streams and events
- Structuring data and metadata by organization and assets (business logic)
- Calculation of key figures (KPIs, virtual data points)
- Visualization of data, anomalies, forecasts and insights
- Predictive Control with the help of machine learning processes, incorporating subject-specific domain knowledge
The NEXOCRAFT IoT workflow
Relying on powerful, state-of-the-art IoT Analytics platform architecture. Intuitively operable.
Perform your own analyses by visualizing time series in a multi-trend chart, and create multi-axis plots of data point histories with just a few clicks. Trend analyses can be saved and are readily accessible. Example: Compare the efficiency of multiple machines of the same type.
The KPI Manager supports graph-based modeling of data flows, making it easy to transform raw data into meaningful information. First, raw data points are selected as sources; then mathematical operators process the input flows.
Intermediate results can be processed further using additional flow elements. The final result is saved as KPI in the platform, where KPIs can be visualized as trends or assigned to dashboards. Individual, and easy to configure.
KPI examples: Weekly throughput, response rate, maintenance costs, availability.
Present raw data and KPIs in freely customizable dashboards: Choose a chart type (e.g. pie charts) and save it as widget to visualize your data points. All widgets can be reused later. Then select a dashboard layout and arrange the widgets according to size and focal point. Widgets can be dragged and dropped dynamically onto the layout. Done.
Visualizing assets in geographical maps at any level of detail allows you to model the assets' layout and display it together with the precise location. Add additional metadata such as visitor heat maps, customer flows, and length of stay and define zones (such as sections of a production line) which can be used for analytics and reports.
Special feature: Create digital indoor maps that are perfect for navigation, e.g. building floor plans, campus plans, accommodation facilities.
In the event of an unscheduled occurrance, e.g. if a threshold value is violated, an alarm is triggered and messages of varying urgency are sent out. Depending on your preference, you will receive these notifications either via email or SMS push notification.
Every alarm and every message is recorded chronologically in the platform's Event Overview. To create a new alert setting, simply select a data point or KPI and define an alarm criterion. Lastly, you assign the recipient(s). Based on analytical models (e.g. predictive maintenance), generated events can also be escalated via the Alarm Manager.
Dashboards provide transparency in the platform. Based on a configurated dashboard, PDF reports can be scheduled on a regular basis for any time interval and sent out via email.
Based on your settings, a report is generated automatically for the set reporting period (e.g. "last month"), providing seamless coverage. All reports can be downloaded from the platform.
