With the introduction of Industry 4.0, numerous large manufacturers are looking to leverage the benefits of the connected and smart factory. However, these manufacturers struggle with defining roadmaps and prioritizing technology choices to achieve the maximum benefits. Often, IT and automation processes are not aligned as they are comprised of different technologies and mindsets, causing delays and added costs. That is where ProjectBinder is creating a difference by acting as the median between IT and Automation.
With its experienced IT and automation specialists, ProjectBinder supports manufacturers to select the right set of technologies to strike a balance between the IT and automation departments. “We act as partners in obtaining the required services and infrastructure capabilities when working towards the next generation within manufacturing: the Industry 4.0,” says Morten Clarck Sørensen, GM, ProjectBinder South.
The company works with several aspects of a project, including technical and infrastructure, as well as various levels within an organization, from the strategic advisory to the top management for achieving the benefits of Industry 4.0. ProjectBinder’s team can sufficiently handle a project and lay the foundation for Industry 4.0 technologies including IoT, cloud, security-solutions, robotics, AI, and more.
ProjectBinder professionals are typically placed within the customer organization as work package owners, advisors or senior project managers. The company’s experts support the operational side of the client business by gaining access to internal governance, processes, and relevant business data and help achieve targeted benefits. On the automation side, ProjectBinder’s experts can retrieve data from any automation equipment to improve the productivity of the customer’s production lines.

“We work closely with the customer team to make sure that the right data is retrieved and displayed,” says Martin Petersen, GM, ProjectBinder North. The infrastructure is a crucial component for retrieving data in real-time from the different automation components. Here, ProjectBinder brings to the table a very experienced team that has delivered multiple projects within IT and manufacturing networks and services in multiple regulated industries. When moving into the execution phase, the customer can choose ProjectBinder to offer the project execution part, as well.
The company has converted multiple customer PCs into virtual images and used Zero Clients instead of local PCs. This ensures that the customer can keep the production equipment alive on old operating systems without being dependant on the hardware. From a documentation and qualification perspective, the company provides attractive savings on time. Similarly, on the IT side, ProjectBinder has helped numerous customers in the Industry 4.0 journey as advisors for interconnecting the automation equipment in larger infrastructures/WANs. To support customers with the right combination of solutions within IT infrastructure and IT services, the company focuses on keeping up to date with new technologies. “Combining this with a holistic approach to the customers, we see ourselves in a unique position to support in the intersection between IT and Automation,” says Sørensen.
With the amalgamation of traditional independent functions such as power management, machine learning, building management systems, automation systems, infrastructure services, and IT systems, ProjectBinder will utilize its experience to secure horizontal alignments between the different segments. “This is something that we will focus on. Our key task is to make our customers more competitive with their current install base and give future-proofed suggestions for new investments,” says Petersen.
