On October 3rd, the Workshop Industry 4.0 – Real Time Experience took place in the Escuela Bancaria y Comercial of San Luis Potosí. The event, organised by Geprom in collaboration with ProMéxico, held two speaker sessions, from Ciateq and Geprom, who talked about the digital transformation and the progress happening right now in the Mexican industry.
Ciateq, technological centre in Mexico, spoke about the added value of technology development for manufacturing, focusing on new IoT technologies inside the industry.
Dario Cesena, CEO at Geprom, did a presentation centred around the main technological solutions and success cases of the company in terms of Smart Factory, emphasising the importance of people in the way towards factories with more intelligent, flexible, and efficient processes.
During the session, Cesena also introduced the monitoring system Legato Sapient, the platform capable of planning, controlling, and monitoring in real time all the information about the productive process. Likewise, real success cases were presented in which this system allowed companies to make decisions in real time and improve their production’s efficiency.
One of the most interesting thoughts that arose was the importance of factory automation and the fact that they need to be ready for the application of digital technologies. Only when we have an automated factory will we be able to capture and treat the thousands of data that our workshops, machines, clients, and providers generate.
Finally, and as a main focus of the speech, Geprom’s speaker focused on the people, and how their attitude in front of the changes that the industry is experimenting is the true key to being able to answer to the demands of this new industrial revolution.
The day ended with some questions from the attendees, which allowed them to interact with the speakers, answer doubts, and create new bonds.
From Geprom we want to thank ProMéxico for their collaboration in this event and for the opportunity to connect with the Mexican industry.
