Today I participated in the IV Interregional Thematic Seminar organized by the International Center for Advanced Materials and Raw Materials of Castile and Leon (ICAMCyL).
Last week we held the “IoT DIH Community Day”, organised by the DIH World project. During the event, different presentations were given about Digital Innovation Hubs and their importance for the digital transformation of companies.
The Connected Industry or Smart Industry is a competitive advantage; the companies that have digitized their processes evidence it with improvements in the production chain and in their invoicing.
At BISITE we work on projects that aim to improve production processes through the application of multiple technologies. These solutions also improve the quality of life, as in the case of the COSIBAS project, whose main objective is to integrate a layer of intelligence in network services and IoT devices for the automated control of processes.
Industry 4.0 is one of the pillars of the Digital Spain 2025 Plan, which prioritizes the incorporation of technologies in the value chain. The aim is to achieve more efficient and flexible production, shorter manufacturing times and better stock control; these features will be of great value to the Spanish industry, making it more competitive. Moreover, it will be profitable for the country.
Apart from using new technologies, more advanced supply chains should protect the health of the workers and ensure their safety. Ergonomics projects should be seen as a fundamental element of any company’s strategy for productivity improvement.
One of the objectives of the European Union is for member states to commit themselves to promoting the connected industry and the digitalisation of all sectors. To this end, they promote different programmes aimed at helping SMEs and institutions in their digital transformation processes.
The industry has undergone significant changes since the first industrial revolution that began in the second half of the 18th century, up until today. The transformation has been remarkable and new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, Robotic Automation, Machine Learning, Big Data and others make it possible to enter a new period; the fourth industrial revolution.
