Automation Systems division of Liebherr has developed four applications that are said to support Industry 4.0 initiatives. The LMS 4.0 (Liebherr Manufacturing System) control system enables users to choose software packages that meet their requirements for 4.0 applications.

The four packages include: the Production Schedule App, in which users can manage production orders and processes statically or dynamically; the Part Tracking App for logged part tracking in an assembly line; and the Production Monitoring App for recording production and operating data. There is also an Info Board App for the display of the machine status on a large screen or smartphone. Others are currently in the developmental stage, such as the Predictive Planned Maintenance app, which enables intelligent maintenance planning and maintenance logs.
