Why a web-enabled iIM4 solution?

The increasing spread of mobile devices and the associated variety of operating systems requires solutions that can be used platform-independently.

New application scenarios in industry such as the use of mobile devices for production planning, monitoring and evaluation are gaining in popularity. These scenarios require applications that are intuitive to use, easy to maintain and safe to operate.

Application scenarios / system architecture

The flexibility of iIM4 makes it possible to run the software in different application scenarios.

An exclusive use within the company network including web-based access of various clients (desktop PC, tablet, smartphone) is just as possible as a connection to a cloud provider such as Amazon, Google or Microsoft. This cloud solution allows authorized users worldwide access to the collected data and is ideally suited, for example, to determine, compare and evaluate performance indicators (KPI) of different plants from different locations.

Internal company network - Private Cloud (on premise)
Connection to cloud providers - hybrid/public cloud

Advantages of web-based applications

  • Variety of terminals
  • Operating system diversity
  • User friendly
  • Secure
  • Easy to update
  • Deployable in private or public cloud


Dashboards offer a condensed display of key performance indicators (KPI). This enables employees to be quickly informed about relevant system statuses at any time. Especially the consideration of OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) makes it possible to recognize possible optimizations of the production process. They also help to control and evaluate the success of the resulting improvement measures in the long term.
Long-term view OEE
Distribution of alarm frequency by plant sections
On-schedule maintenance
Threshold violations of measured values
  • Flexible connection to local data server or database in the cloud
  • Browser-based access
  • No software installation necessary
  • Print and export functionality
  • Automated e-mail dispatch
