Schneppe U., Mag. Inform., Head of Information Dept., e-mail:


The idea of tight collaboration between Hoesch Hohenlimburg and its business partners has been realized via horizontal and vertical integration. Interaction is built on usage of digital technologies and is intensified along the whole chain of added value creation. In this connection, the ideas, concepts and technologies of Industry 4.0 have been put into practice directly and efficiently. But Industry 4.0 is a continuous process that should serve to development of specifi c business model and achieving success at customer, thereby it can’t be a goal in itself of the technological development. Until today business processes of Hoesch Hohenlimburg were restricted by the framework of its own enterprise. But the project “Variation of production process for medium wide strip”, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and MES (Manufacturing Execution System) systems have been introduced and the custoners are able now to register directly their orders in the system of Hoesch Hohenlimburg to provide digital business.
