Approach & Solution

Approach

During the past few years, the evolution of Industry 4.0 concepts, led our company to pursue a clear objective: to develop innovative solutions that were able to optimize and automate production systems aimed at helping our clients improve the efficiency of their processes.
To achieve this, we would have to to evolve all the applications and various technologies that enable the functioning of various production lines. This was exactly what our Client, a multinational group, that operates in over 80 countries around the world, with more than 100.000 employees worldwide, asked us to achieve.

Leveraging our technology competences and our long-standing experience in this industry, we were chosen by this great company for a Smart Manufacturing project, aimed at making workers activities easier and more effective.

Solution

This is where our Digital Factory came into play, a (MOM) Manufacturing Operation Management/(MES) Manufacturing Execution System solution, which substitutes obsolete production management systems and old printing processes, going from the single consumption units to the labels being applied on boxes and pallets.

The various modules developed during the project (such as MES, Labeling, IDF -Integrated Digital Factory- Connector e Scan to Consume), allow to radically optimize the exchange of data with automation systems, the data collection from production, quality and ERP systems and, finally, the solution enables data to be sent to other applications used.
