Technologies change. New versions are released, e.g. FDT 3.0 with client-server architecture. At the same time, you and your customers need to support brownfield plants being equipped with “older” technology versions.
Talking about FDT technology, this means there are running applications based on FDT 1.2/1.2.1. Additionally, there is FDT 2.0 and now FDT 3.0 is on the horizon. There is a challenge to support the installed base as well as stay up-to-date and go with the technologies.
So, you might ask yourself: Which is the version to go for? How do I ensure support for existing installations and save the investments made? How do I face the future trends at the same time? Is FDT 3.0 our way to realize Industry 4.0 and IIoT and to provide the requested products and services to our customers?
As a founding member and being active member of several working groups of the FDT Group CodeWrights knows the history, the present and the upcoming versions of FDT technology. We know about the details, about the pros and cons, the benefits and possible migration strategies.
So, this is where CodeWrights steps in.
What is your starting point? What aspects in your product lifecycle shall be preserved? Is there already a target defined? How can you get there? Let’s conduct a workshop to find answers to all these questions, to put pieces in place and look at the facts from all sides.
The CodeWrights’ approach in such a workshop can be summed up in four steps:
Listen – Comprehend – Decide – Action
