Improving Manufacturing through Software and Sensors: Moving towards the Smart Factory
Find out how we can support you with research, development and innovation for software applications to enhance your manufacturing.
What is the Event About?
However far along the road to Industry 4.0 your factory is now, performance can be improved through recording what is happening, and analysing that performance to identify improvements.
This can help you understand costs, limitations, optimisations, and interventions that have the potential to transform production. In some cases, factories can be configured to allow increased process monitoring to be combined with automated decision making to enable rapid reaction to change situations.
