  • Produce more (Productivity)
  • Produce at lower cost (Efficiency)
  • Produce better (Quality)

Spain ranks 24th in the Fourth Industrial Revolution technology adoption index (2021 Global Competitiveness Report of the World Economic Forum). In addition, the Spanish government promotes the adoption of Industry 4.0, with initiatives such as the Spanish Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation 2021-2027, which includes a plan to promote digitization and Industry 4.0 in companies.

Although there is data that indicates that we are a country with great growth potential and actions supported by the government, digital transformation continues to be a great challenge for the industrial sector, since it is extremely difficult to know where to start and how to project the technology. in the future so that you have coherence with the processes of each particular sector and with the business strategy of the company.

In this way, we always move from necessity to technology, guaranteeing the success of the implementation of future projects.

In this journey, it is essential that the company’s management participate actively, guaranteeing a cultural change that lasts and is transformed into the expected results. It is also essential to involve as many people as possible.
