FASTEC Goes Cloud

Geschäftsführer  Stefan Rupprecht und Christian Reusch mit FASTedge Box und Touch-Terminal FASTedge SFT15
Cloud? We can! With our new products pvaPRO, smartOEE and FASTedge, companies receive turnkey systems and benefit from us as a solution partner throughout the entire project period and beyond. While pvaPRO is a practical dashboard add-on for the existing Manufacturing Execution System (MES) FASTEC 4 PRO, smartOEE provides a quick and uncomplicated entry into the world of MES. smartOEE combines the advantages of the proven MES FASTEC 4 PRO with the intuitive reports of pvaPRO. The associated hardware is provided by the FASTedge product family, meaning that customers receive everything from a single source. Thanks to the hybrid architecture model, production data is secured even in the event of an internet outage. The advantages include quick and easy installation, a flexible rental option and the option of receiving a replacement device within 48 hours.

The MES with state-of-the-art technologies forms the foundation for the factory of the future. Our new pvaPRO, FASTedge and smartOEE solutions meet the requirements of our customers in the areas of edge and cloud. In this way, we enable you to ideally implement digital, revenue-generating and sustainable production.

Report Data Individually and Across Locations

With pvaPRO, FASTEC has reached a milestone in development: production data that is already recorded with the MES FASTEC 4 PRO can now be reported centrally in the web-based cloud-native application. And this is how it works: the recorded operating and machine data is transferred cyclically from FASTEC 4 PRO to pvaPRO. Microsoft Azure ensures that the data is securely encrypted and uses the latest technologies.

pvaPRO offers the following benefits:

  • By using the cloud, production data is available everywhere and can be used at any time.
  • Apart from an internet connection, no additional IT infrastructure is required in the plant for this function.
  • pvaPRO enables the central management of several plants. This leads to a cross-location and web-based report of the data and ensures greater transparency within the organization.
  • The new reporting components access the data in the cloud, enabling reports to be compiled in customized dashboards. Among other things, several widgets, tables and charts are available.

Become Part of the MES World Quickly and Cost-Effectively

smartOEE provides a quick and cost-effective introduction to digital data acquisition and reporting, replacing the previous easyOEE productivity measuring device. More advantages at a glance:

  • All components are preconfigured and ready for operation within a very short time – plug & play.
  • The system combines the best functions of the tried-and-tested MES FASTEC 4 PRO for production data acquisition and the individual analysis options of pvaPRO.
  • The system is characterized by simple installation and intuitive operation.
  • With smartOEE, companies can record machine and operating data in production and report it in the cloud.
  • If required, there is the option of scaling data acquisition to all machines and adding further MES functions.
  • Various services are available to help you achieve your goals. 

Everything from a Single Source: Hardware Developed In-house for Immediate Use

The in-house developed FASTedge product family makes it possible to get started quickly with smartOEE. Whereas manufacturing companies previously had to provide the IT infrastructure at great expense, in future they will be able to obtain the entire hardware preconfigured from a single source. Our customers also benefit from the option to

    • rent the hardware flexibly,
    • receive a replacement device within 48 hours and
    • upgrade to the latest version after 36 months.

The FASTedge Box establishes the connection between cloud and edge in the hybrid architecture. The internet connection is established via the customer’s own network or via mobile communications. The always-on function also ensures reliability. The Internet connection is established via the customer’s own network or via mobile communications. The FASTedge SFT15 touch terminal is the operator’s interface to the system and includes an RFID reader and digital inputs for recording machine signals as standard.

By developing our extensive product portfolio, we are creating an innovation on the MES market that has never existed before. High costs and IT expenses at the start of the project are replaced by a plug & play concept and flexible conditions. This low barrier to entry simplifies the investment decision.

Digital Maintenance Increases the Reliability of Machinery

Maintenance is a strategic success factor in manufacturing companies

Digital maintenance increases the reliability, availability and process stability of machinery. A distinction is made between event-driven, preventive and predictive maintenance – often the only way to achieve the desired result is through a combination of them.


FASTedge SFT15

The 15-inch touch terminal is required for each machine. It has a universal RFID reader and two digital inputs for machine connection as standard.

FASTedge Box

Both the terminals and the machines are connected to the EdgeBox via LAN or WiFi. The cloud connection is made via your network or mobile communications. At least one EdgeBox is required. The system can later be moved to your own server.


Personal users are required to report the collected data. The number of employees involved in data acquisition in your production does not matter.


Each line and machine in your production is licensed individually.
