CLIFE Digital Twin Solution


CLIFE Digital Twin Solution

Smartification at its best

Do you know how much added value your factory, your facility, your individual machine’s data can generate? And do you also know that these data can be the foundation stone for successful digitalisation  in your work environment?

Many companies are facing the challenge of using existing data to their advantage. Opaque and heterogeneous information landscapes make it necessary to use various different tools in parallel to navigate your way to the desired contents. This makes collaboration and organisation within the company more difficult. It is often especially difficult to coordinate complex processes when working from home or during a business trip.

In CLIFE, we offer you a solution that lets you take on this challenge step by step and implement digitalisation successfully.

CLIFE ensures that you have the most important information to hand, anytime and anywhere. You can react rapidly to important events like production interruptions; your processes will be markedly more flexible.

CLIFE not only allows you to use all your data in the best possible way; it also offers you the opportunity to distribute the most important data among various users to optimal effect. A manager uses CLIFE to get an overview of all the production sites; an operator follows the live status of every machine; a maintainer can see in an instant whether repairs are necessary.

Digitalisation is moving unstoppably forward. CLIFE offers you the ability to keep pace and set yourself up confidently for the future.

The latest technologies and innovative implementations make CLIFE an ideal digital companion.


The CBM is the core of CLIFE, aggregating, compressing, processing and storing data from the most diverse sources. CLIFE is a platform-independent solution that offers a live view of the facility in question, in 2D or 3D. CLIFE is operated via a browser; the server can be implemented on-premises or in the cloud. Thanks to its modern and forward-looking architecture, CLIFE is compatible with all operating systems and can therefore be used immediately with any terminal device. The CLIFE architecture, based on microservices and docker containers, enables solutions that can be rapidly adapted to the most varied demands.

CLIFE Connectivity Modules allow data aggregation of industrial connectors and business intelligence connectors that communicate with a connectivity hub in the CBM. There, data are validated, passed on to gateways for display and logged in a database. If necessary, an additional load balancer ensures transparent scaling of the application, allowing high availability without adverse effects.

CLIFE offers connectors to aggregate data from a range of sources:

  • Connect machines and facilities, PCs, smartphones, tablets and even virtual/mixed reality glasses via the CLIFE-MQTT Connector.
  • Aggregate data from your automation solutions e.g. from a PLC or CNC machine using the CLIFE-OPC Connector.
  • Connect additional edge devices using the CLIFE-IoT-Edge Connector.
  • Add further historical data or metadata in any current file format e.g. Excel, CSV and XML using the CLIFE-Documents Connector.
  • Correlate additional information from external data sources e.g. weather data or electricity prices from existing websites using the CLIFE-Scraper Connector.
  • Add ERP files e.g. from SAP to your production data using the CLIFE-BAPI Connector.
  • Do you have your own applications that already aggregate some of the data? Use the CLIFE-REST Connector to connect your own applications to CLIFE.

Use the CLIFE Extension Modules such as data analysis, machine learning and production planning to optimise processes and evaluate production. With these modules, CLIFE creates the optimum basis for predictive maintenance, a major goal of digitalisation.
