As the leading service specialist for the entire life cycle of factories and plants, Leadec plans, installs and maintains factories worldwide, providing properly functioning production lines all around the globe. One of the Stuttgart-based company’s major competencies is finding and fixing errors within the communication networks of factories. Thus, Leadec is the first partner to contact for factory operators and system integrators when devices and machines do not communicate correctly with each other in industrial Real-Time Ethernet networks.
Since no two factories are alike, Leadec is often confronted with troubleshooting in highly diverse and complex systems. Each application represents a distinct use case and errors all too often are very hard to find. For this reason, it is particularly important for Leadec to be able to rely entirely on its tools and their measurement results. In addition, plants must remain operable during troubleshooting as stopped manufacturing lines mean a loss of production, unfulfilled supply contracts and, in any case, an economic damage – which must be prevented at any cost.
