EnginSoft’s strategic approach to Industry 4.0
Key elements of Industry 4.0
Connection between the real and the virtual world, and human interaction
The EU’s Digital Europe Programme is based on key elements of Industry 4.0.
The PEOPLE, DIGITAL and Real PHYSICS worlds are key ingredients for the competitiveness and sustainability of a customer-oriented (the market place) Smart Factory.
EnginSoft invests in the human skills and competences to properly use Industry 4.0 tools. The company’s program of training and courses is integral to the transfer of knowledge to customers – some examples are its collaboration with European academic institutions and the TCN Consortium.
EnginSoft has digital in its DNA – right from the pioneering days of numerical modelling in the Eighties with CAE virtual prototyping.
A Decision Support System (DSS) along the value chain is mandatory to enable the effective adoption of Industry 4.0’s key enabling technologies (KETs) – advanced materials modelling, connected machines, data mining, cyber-physical systems (CPS), big data, Internet of things (IoT), augmented reality (AR), cloud computing, cybersecurity, etc. Obviously, the Digital Twin is the strategic connection between the digital and real worlds, and is geared towards minimizing scrap production (zero defect manufacturing, ZDM) and maximizing overall equipment efficiency (OEE). In this area, EnginSoft’s AI-driven technology supports resource and time usage, maintenance, configuration and automation, as well as quality forecasting. The Circular Economy links raw materials, eco-design, energy-aware processes, and the recycling and reuse of waste at the end of the product’s life.
