Kuraray had the objective of "digitizing manufacturing." This included the creation of an end-to-end, digital production support system that would simplify all work processes and make them more efficient. In addition, unique ID coding was to be established as a basis for better traceability and for future requirements. For this purpose, ThingWorx from PTC quickly emerged as a suitable IoT platform, which is also predestined for the connection of other company systems as well as the integration of SAP.
