The hardware for the solution will be based on HARTING’s MICA (Modular Industry Computing Architecture) edge computer, which will be combined with the itelligence it.x-connect solution. MICA will capture the weight and tracking information and feed the data to the SAP processes.
The brief for the project is from Cavendish & Harvey to track containers, boxes and pallets in production automatically. The whole solution will be highly automated with SAP processes in production and in warehousing using a combination of MICA, it.x-connect and SAP software including IoT Edge Gateway, SAP Leonardo, SAP Cloud and SAP S/4HANA. Seamless networked data flow is vital to the success of the project.
