SPHINX OPEN – the logical digital twin platform engineered by GFT
Let’s get greener, smarter, faster by using the power of your real time data.
Integrates data and delivers relevant information to the right people at the right time
Your business and operational data is often held in different formats across diverse systems (e.g. ERP, PLM, MES, SCADA). Integrating this data into one central data model is essential to empower everyone in your organisation with access to real-time information. With SPHINX OPEN, you can reduce initial engineering costs for creating such a central data model by at least 50% while minimizing your risk.
SPHINX OPEN delivers a consistent experience whether you’re in the office, on the web or mobile. It offers a bespoke portal frame and all the tools you need, including a wide range of dashboards, indicators and controls. In practice, you have a complete environment for design, administration and management of the platform, putting you in control of where you go next.
With SPHINX OPEN, you can start small and grow quickly. Begin by building prototypes that run in parallel with your production environment. Our system remains independent, so you can modify and scale with no disruption to business as usual. And as a solution that’s constantly proven in the toughest environments, SPHINX OPEN leaves nothing to chance.
How we create digital value
SPHINX OPEN architecture
The modern multi-layer architecture provides full IT and OT connectivity. Objects are managed event-driven and enable a central data model of operations. This can be enriched by individual web services and standardized cloud services.
Choose SPHINX OPEN to create a future-proof, data-driven business
Imagine the factory of the future where guesswork is eliminated. Everything is connected and all your key decisions are driven by real-time data. With sphinx open, this becomes a reality.
How SPHINX OPEN unleashes the power of data
Classic dashboards draw on data from sources such as machines, sensors and processes and simply plot them to produce graphs, diagrams or even traffic lights. This approach to unidirectional data transfer is useful, but somewhat superficial.
In reality, data from machines and other production equipment is dynamic and governed by events happening in, on and around it. Production plant produces information that needs to be distributed to the right people in the right places at exactly the right time. That’s why it is even more important to track and understand data within the wider context.
Based on a powerful concept that we call the Model in the Middle™, sphinx open provides us with an end-to-end framework for building central data models. By integrating data vertically from the physical world and connecting it horizontally to business processes (e.g. MES, ERP, PLM), it paves the way for setting up event-driven systems. These interact with their environment via a neuronal structure and communicate with other data.
Because real-life production environments are subject to constant change, the Model in the Middle™ has also been designed to adapt in run time, continuously evolving structures without changing the underlying software ontology. This offers ultimate flexibility, preparing your production environment in the virtual world for full scale-up and implementation in the real world.
Enrich your data model now with external data sources, e.g. weather data, and leverage cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to calculate and forecast potential scenarios and improve decision-making in the real world.
With our SPHINX OPEN system we can enable fully autonomous systems that execute actions based on AI predictions, using our rules engine and your business logic.
Bottom line, you not only introduce full-scale machine learning to your processes, but also allow for autonomous responses to spontaneous events.
Our fractal architecture allows us to deploy hybrid models – on the edge, on your premises or in the cloud – to ensure full cost control and data security. And because flexibility is equally important, we leverage high compute power where it is needed to ensure 24/7 availability and low latency times in any kind of production-critical environment.
