IoT Value Generation
in Manufacturing

Project Needs

The customer faced tremendous pressure to substantially reduce cost from the global manufacturing network, to fund shifts to novel product and production technologies.

Given this situation the customer targeted to identify and roll-out use cases for value generating solutions based on novel digitalization technologies like IoT and Cloud to achieve the targeted savings. All this using a network of internal and external experts, at the fastest time to value possible.


Established continuous use case innovation and solution roll-out process based on AXULUS Value Scaling Accelerator. Full transparency on global use case and solution pipeline, with clear, mandatory value-add calculations per solution. No costly, large digitalization projects, but self-managed continuous improvement process based on use cases identified by operators and experts on the shop-floor themselves.

Standardized templates and workflows for use case identification, solution documentation, quantification of value generation and detailed, step-by-step roll-out workflows ready to use in an industrial environment.

Easy and transparent online enablement for a broad network of users, with easy central management of technological and commercial boundary conditions for solutions identified and published


AXULUS Value Scaling Accelerator as central, online tool chain, to drive use case identification, solution documentation and roll-out of solutions to the global manufacturing network.

Initial AXULUS Launch Project in close collaboration with central team to define scope for roll-out, technical and commercial boundary conditions for solutions and invite resp. distribute login credentials to a broad global network of experts.
Key elements of the successful implementation include:
  • Standardized description templates for use cases, technical documentation of developed solutions, value quantification and roll-out resp. implementation workflows
  • Online training and support capabilities enabling a global network of users to work with the system, to propose use cases and to develop and document solutions, with clear, ready-to-use workflows
  • Clearly defined and executable workflows to manage global use case and solution pipeline, invite and manage external solution designers and service providers, and manage the generation of value-add with a central budget to fund local roll-out of published solutions

AXULUS implemented as a cloud-based subscription tool, running on Microsoft Azure (private or public cloud version) and providing all core functionalities to manage the solution and implementation pipeline from end-to-end across a global network of experts. Standardized "AXULUS Launch Project" approach, documented as ready-to-use workflow, allowing the customer to kick-start innovation and value creation from day one onwards.
