Technology always had a transforming role in the industry. Today we are experiencing a new wave of technological developments based on the massive application of digital technologies in industrial processes. In this transformation, sensors, machines, automation technology and IT systems will be connected throughout the supply chain. This integration allows complete interaction between all the elements of the chain, and enables access to a mass of data that once properly analyzed, can anticipate failures and propose processes changes. Autonomous robots, Internet of things, big data, simulation tools, augmented reality, cloud virtualization, among other technologies, will enable an unprecedented productivity growth. The competitive environment will be redefined based on the ability of each organization to adapt and internalize these new skills.
- Optimization of the production rate (Takt Time)
- Process variability reduction
- Reduced diagnosis time
