Join Smart Factory at the 2017 National Manufacturing Conference & Exhibition on the 31st of January 2017 to hear from an impressive line-up of manufacturing leaders, academics and government agencies who will engage in a stimulating blend of key note addresses and debates.
Digitising the physical world or The Internet of Things has received enormous attention. We will show you how to look beyond the hype and to understand practical ways IoT technology can create real economic value for your business. The ability to electronically monitor and manage equipment and products in the physical world, makes it possible to bring data-driven decision making to new realms of human activity and to optimise the performance of systems and processes.
Smart Factory are on stand number 107 and demonstrating the following solutions.
MDES – on Siemens Tablets

Downtime video analysis
We have developed a solution to capture, analyse and visualise key performance indicators from the manufacturing, logistics and utility sectors, using smart Industrie 4.0 technology. Our smart solutions reduce the amount of time and resources required to capture and communicate critical information across your organisation and dynamically translate this data into actionable intelligence. They empower employees to take the appropriate corrective action to help eliminate losses and promotes a sense of ownership and collaboration. Our secure OPC architecture can communicate to virtually every type or brand of PLC. Smart wireless sensors facilitate the capturing of data from non-networked machines or semi-manual/manual processes. Intuitive mobile touch screen devices convert manual paperwork into lean digital workflows. Interactive smart digital displays eliminate the wasteful effort of preparing and printing paper reports and help to digitise the daily management process. Continuous product and process improvement and the elimination of waste, is a fundamental principle of lean manufacturing. Capturing and visualising data to highlight losses in real-time has been proven to change behaviour, improve throughput and quality and has been shown to improve overall productivity by 5-10%.
