Getting ready for Industry 4.0 using a new software from Klüber Lubrication

In the age of Industry 4.0 manufacturing companies have to deal with increasingly complex machinery and maintenance procedures - all of which calls for more efficient planning and processes.

Klüber Lubrication now offer a software which enables manufacturing companies the ability to align increasingly complex structures in the networked plant. EfficiencyManager provides companies with an overview of all the machines, appliances and equipment relevant to production process and offers ways in which to increase efficiency - energy efficiency projects, optimization of spare parts, or the reduction of maintenance activities for example.

Companies can use the EfficiencyManager online, and enter all the information required for trouble-free production. This includes for example data on re-lubrication and maintenance, deadlines for calibrating scales or inspecting fire extinguishers. "Thanks to accurate documentation of all details perceived by the customers as significant, our EfficiencyManager has become an important, indeed vital source of information. It also provides valuable support for preparing and conducting audits, for example,” says Fritz Bischof, Manager Digital Transformation at Klüber Lubrication.

Via the cloud-based EfficiencyManager multi-location companies can exchange Best Practices and ensure transparency across all locations. A dedicated authorisation system makes sure that each user can only see their relevant section and perform the activities for which he/she has been authorised, and the data concerned is stored securely on a server in Germany.
