The Challenge

  • Implementing a centralized SaaS system to monitor and manage machines remotely and keep control over customers’ equipment.
  • Introducing effective services and tools for data collection, monitoring, and big data analytics.
  • Providing customers with timely maintenance and consulting to improve machines’ performances and quickly resolve disruptions.

The Solution

  • Creation of an Industry 4.0 platform based on Serverless services like AWS Lambda and IoT services such as AWS IoT Core.
  • Implementation of a real-time Big Data analysis solution thanks to the use of Amazon DynamoDB for time series collection, CloudWatch Logs, and Amazon OpenSearch for logs aggregation and analysis.
  • High-performing infrastructure built with Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, and Elastic Load Balancing, together with Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier for long-term and low-cost data storage.

The benefits

Performance

Thanks to the power of the Cloud, Amada Engineering Europe obtained a platform able to store and process the great amount of data from the running machines with no limits.

Centralization

AEE’s IT team achieved full interoperability between different roles and different environments (development, test, and production) through an interface for centralized monitoring and real-time data visualization.

Control

Secure Cloud-based backup for all the machines’ configurations and remote firmware update in push mode enabled.

About beSharp and AWS

Managing, archiving, and processing large amounts of information requires a robust and reliable system able to adapt to workloads constantly. beSharp flanked Amada Engineering Europe to develop a tailor-made SaaS solution in line with the best practices of the Cloud and compliant with AWS Well-Architected Framework. By guiding AEE IT teams through an on-the-job approach, beSharp succeeded in helping the company to understand the new paradigm fully and to become independent in the management of the new environment.
