Industry 4.0 for the Workplace: Digital Dashboards and Shopfloor Boards for Factories and Production Facilities

Software vendor mirabyte is reaching out to the industrial production arena with its digital signage and kiosk software solution "FrontFace," which is used worldwide in a wide variety of industries and domains. While FrontFace in the retail space is typically used to control advertising on public screens, the software can also enhance the industrial sector. Screens directly on site in the factory and on production lines provide valuable information about ongoing production process in real time as so-called dashboards or shopfloor boards. Data from a wide variety of sources and systems can be aggregated and visualized in an appealing way. In addition to production data such as manufactured quantities, the screens can also display key information for quality management. This means that employees in production are also well informed, especially if they do not have their own PC workstations.

The advantage of the FrontFace software, which is installed locally and can therefore be operated completely independently, lies above all in its flexibility and expandability. With the Dashboard Plugin and the Accident Statistics Plugin, two vertical functions are already available out of the box for industrial companies. But even for special applications or complex integration scenarios, FrontFace’s plugin SDK (software development kit) enables you to meet special requirements at any time without having to reinvent the wheel.

In addition to the basic digital signage functions, FrontFace also offers the implementation of interactive systems: Besides displaying up-to-date information, employees can also interactively access content and media, such as documentations and manuals for machines or processes. With FrontFace, in addition to a comprehensive Industry 4.0 strategy, a complete, interactive information system for the holistic support of production and manufacturing processes can be implemented in no time!

The FrontFace software is available as a free, fully functional trial version for download from the mirabyte Website ( A license costs USD $599.95 and entitles permanent use on a simple player/kiosk PC.
