We often hear to talk about it, but the concept of Industry 4.0 seems still something abstract and distant to many companies. This is what emerged from a survey conducted in Italy by BCG and Ipsos. According to it 22% of the interviewed companies (total number 170) did not plan any I4.0-related activities shortly.
GP Progetti has been working on Industry 4.0 for years. We now want to share the advantages for companies that invest in the smart factory. An intent that is connected to the technological consultancy that GP Progetti offers to customers, supporting and guiding them during the process of evolution in a smart factory perspective.
The questions of entrepreneurs on Industry 4.0 and industrial production
To explain the potential of the Industry 4.0 GP Progetti reports the more frequent questions and doubts of the entrepreneurs. Here are some examples:
- “Which departments of my company can I involve in the Industry 4.0?”
All of them. Industry 4.0 embraces every stage of production, from less complex activities to more complex ones that also involve customers or suppliers. The goal is the creation of an efficient chain that optimizes production in all its phases. Defining the most efficient methods that involve all production steps is the goal of a reliable and competent partner such as GP Progetti.
- “My staff is not prepared to face this change”.
The transition to the intelligent factory certainly requires specific and more fluid skills. GP Progetti offers an activity of support and training to the internal staff for the use of the management software for production monitoring.
- “How can I manage the practice to access tax opportunities related to Industry 4.0?”
GP Progetti supports its customers in this phase too.
After mentioning the most frequent doubts that GP Progetti, production management software company, often meets, it is useful to list the benefits linked to Industry 4.0. Companies wishing to become smart will be able to enjoy:
- Flexibility and speed thanks to innovative technologies
- Increased productivity thanks to the reduction of machine downtime, errors and production times
- Better quality and waste reduction thanks to sensors for production monitoring
If you think that your company is not made for Industry 4.0, call us to clear up any doubts. It will be a pleasure to show you all the potentials and advantages for those who choose to evolve into smart factories with GP Progetti.
Established in 1962 as a manual metal sheeting turnery, Maggiori Fratelli grew thanks to the experience and willingness to open to new technologies. A development that in 2005 led the company to move into a 2,000 square meter warehouse. More space for the machinery fleet that now, thanks to GP Progetti’s eNX Entry software solution, is managed from an industry 4.0 perspective.

eNX Entry: the start package for managing production data
Optimization and increased productivity are possible thanks to technological tools that stimulate production improvement. Even in the case of Major Brothers, the achievement of automation passes from the choice of an advanced management system for industrial production. What about learning how to use this innovative tool? GP Progetti has assisted and still supports the staff of Maggiori Fratelli with its constant consultancy and training dedicated to the personnel in charge.
For the future, the metal sheeting turnery plans to extend the functionality of the advanced GP Progetti production management software to other machinery to generate an integrated and interconnected production system.
