Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 implementation and digital transformation of the company

Digital Transformation is not exclusive to technology giants, bold start-ups or innovators and visionaries but is at the heart of the change taking place in many sectors, including manufacturing. A process that has begun and will continue to make our companies and our production system in general more competitive.

To truly implement a business transformation towards 4.0, it is important to realise that one must not only rely on new technologies, but must first implement a cultural change in organisations, through modernisation of strategies, new products and streamlined processes. This means knowing and recognising the needs and opportunities for digital innovation in the business. It means having a lucid and systemic vision of one's business model in order to ensure consistency between technological choices and medium-term plans. Indeed, we must be careful not to trivialise this aspect and reduce this important opportunity to Industry 4.0 alone, but be clear that the transformation path and strategic innovation must organically embrace strategy and products (goods and/or services) in addition to processes.

The term Industry 4.0 denotes a trend in industrial automation that integrates certain new production technologies to improve working conditions, create new business models and increase the productivity and production quality of facilities. Industry 4.0 today is described as a process triggered by the fourth industrial revolution that will lead to fully automated and interconnected production.

The introduction of 4.0 in a company that has already gone through a Lean transformation becomes one of the key success factors, because:

The Considi I-4.0 model to guide the 4.0 transformation of companies

The Considi I-4.0 model is a global approach that guides companies towards 4.0 transformation. It starts with the customer's needs. It puts people at the centre. It assesses technology enablement in the company according to the three dimensions: strategy, processes and products.

  • Digital Transformation Strategy:
    • We develop strategy proposals complementary to existing ones aimed at seizing new opportunities related to the digitisation of products and processes
    • We certify through audits the level of application of lean principles and the current level of digitisation
    • We select the technology partners most consistent with the defined model and accompany the implementation by mediating between the technical approach of the solution providers and the needs of the operational staff
  • Smart Product:
    • Analysing products in the light of evolutionary trends and suggesting possible incremental features (services and/or add-ons) 

  • Smart Process:
    • We identify technology trajectories for processes consistent with the business model or in any case with production/quality requirements

    • We design the new logistics-production model including consolidated technological and digital solutions in synergy with key resources in the company

    • We implement vertical and rapid solutions (POC and MVP) to validate the model in the field and gather initial feedback

    • We support production plants in recovering efficiency through the rapid application of digital data collection tools (work sampling, OEE kits, MiniMes)

  • Gear factory:
    • We provide a miniature factory where state-of-the-art 4.0 technologies can be seen applied

    • We train people to embark on the 4.0 journey in the company
