Feasibility Study

The feasibility study is usually the entry into digitization, the services include the following:

  • Check task definition, understanding of the customer problem

  • Check status, inventory, customer value stream, technology and asset inventory

  • Rough illustration of the embedding in the business model(s), systems and structures

The result is a rough overview of the value stream, technology, facilities, structure and a first gross data analysis. A clear picture of the benefit dimension and potential recognition derived from this is presented as a proposal for an implementation concept. This can be used by the customer as a valid basis for decision-making.

Digital Transformation Basis

In the digital transformation BASIS – building on the feasibility study – the content is further deepened with a focus on the value-added part to be included in the transformation. In a first step, this usually affects a service part with a large leverage (problems) in daily operations:

  • Evaluation of software status, product mix, functions and operation, analysis of the system with regard to material and energy flow

  • Digital mapping of the process technology in prototyping (cause-effect relationships, algorithms) and construction of the required digital components on the systems (sensors, hardware, software …)

  • Development of the first models for optimized system operation in the process data coupling and in the pre-processing & reflection of the data model developed

  • Development of digital twins in sprints & step-by-step introduction to trial operation

At the same time, user interfaces are designed, reporting requirements are mapped and the necessary changes in organization, structure and competencies are initiated. The changes are implemented gradually and jointly and are put into operation on one system.

Digital Transformation Roll-Out

After successfully designed projects on the “digital transformation basis”, the solutions developed are rolled out in close cooperation with customers at several locations. Once developed, models generate the highest possible customer benefit. It is important to design standards and templates accordingly in the basic phase. The technical requirements must be clear (measuring points, system configuration, maintenance), the software environment including visualization and reports must be coordinated and the standards for system operation must be implemented.

Standards and templates are, of course, validated and released and thus form an important future know-how advantage for customers.

Digital Transformation Service

The scope of the services is determined in coordination with the customer’s service and maintenance expertise. From previous projects is clear that a certain level of support and service is especially useful in the initial phase.

CHORUS DIGITAL also works with service partners from the CHORUS family to ensure the required services meaningful for long-term, successful system operation.
