In his book, The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Klaus Schwab says, “In all moments of major technological change, people, companies, and institutions feel the depth of the change, but they are often overwhelmed by it.”. Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing are no longer just fads but are becoming essential to compete in a global economy.
When looking to move to Industry 4.0, not knowing where to start and not being able to find the right people, can lead to long implementation times and inflated budgets. It can be expensive and complex.
Magic understands that real time information about “what goes on” in all aspects of your business is the basis for industry 4.0. This information must be clearly presented on tablets and smartphones for everyone in the factory to immediately act upon – from the machine operators and shift managers, to the logistics and operations teams and executives. Making informed decisions based on real time data is essential, as is having a fully integrated view of all machines, information systems, and departments. Utilizing your data in a smart way enables proactive informed decisions and optimization of your production and supply chain effectiveness.This is where Magic’s FactoryEye steps in.
