Anyone can contribute to the Dutch ‘Smart Industry’ strategic plan, but how? At Beenen, a simulation factory has been constructed, where customers can see all the functionalities of controls. Implementing Smart Industry in reality. A combination of wireless communication linked to intelligent sensors. For instance, we have been working with decentralised intelligent components linked to a network to facilitate predictive maintenance and central control of assets.
The factory of the future – the Smart Factory – is a paradise of efficiency, where disruptions and breakdowns, waste and waiting times are long-forgotten things of a bygone era, where plant managers and information managers can jointly track every move, every measurement of every machine/process right up to delivery with the help of a seamless mix of data and production, of IT and assembly.
