Premonitions? Prophecies? Intuitions? No, with GP Progetti the future of your company is the result of the collection and analysis of data and of the planning and monitoring activities performed by advanced production management software, to keep every production process under control.
Predictive analytics with GP Progetti’s software for advanced production management
Anticipating the future is certainly among the priorities of every company. How can you do it? GP Progetti talks about it in his new spot: don’t rely on the crystal ball to predict the evolution of your company. The tools to perform predictive analysis according to an Industry 4.0 perspective are quite different, like the advanced GP Progetti production management software.
What’s the aim of predictive analytics?
Achieving greater efficiency in production processes is the goal of predictive analytics. Through this approach it is possible to prevent machinery malfunctions, which are among the main causes of interruptions and delays in production. Predictive maintenance is part of the new Industry 4.0 model, capable of limiting technical contingencies and thus avoiding economic damage to the company. Thanks to the predictive interventions it is therefore possible to operate on the machinery to plan the action before real faults occur. Production planning does not only concern activities, products and raw materials, but also the tools involved in the processes and their functioning. Thanks to a production monitoring software it is possible to adopt this preventive and predictive approach. GP Progetti proposes eSphere, which allows you to manage production in a flexible way and to know in advance the future impact of any change in planning.
The advantages of predictive analytics:
- Reduce intervention costs
- Reduce downtime
With the condition monitoring the parameters of the machines are measured and monitored, thanks to the Internet of Things and the installed sensors.

Extension for 2019 hyper-amortization: what are the categories that can benefit from the tax incentives?
First of all the bonuses will be renewed, but not to the same extent as 2018.
This is clarified by the latest EFD (Economic and Financial Document) which describes the innovations of the Industry 4.0 Plan.
The extension of hyper-amortization for 2019 will drop to 175%; 120% for software. Instead it seems that the super amortization will not be foreseen thus arriving at the natural expiration date of December 31st, 2018.
In order to know for certain the incentive measures it will be necessary to wait for the final approval of the 2019 Budget Law.
Extension for 2019 hyper-amortization: measures for the new year
It appears that for now the advantage on the purchase of physical assets will be halved.
As anticipated the bonus for the asset will go from 250% to 175%, thus underlining a significant reduction.
However, a new type of tax incentive will be introduced regarding the Corporate Tax VAT rate on reinvested earnings: the tax will drop by nine points, from 24% to 15%.
An incentive will be introduced together with the extension of the 2019 hyper-amortization for the assumption of new “4.0 figures”, which are highly specialized with regard to this matter.
SMEs will be supported in the recruitment of experts available to the company that will be able to undertake digital transformation using the knowledge of 4.0 experts.
Industry 4.0 extension 2019: the figure of temporary digital manager
Companies will be able to use a temporary digital manager, an innovation specialist at the service of SMEs that aim towards innovation.
This figure will be in charge of the digitization and transformation of the business towards the 4.0 process, facilitating the training of professionals within the company.
The goal is to continue in a natural way towards an effective digital transformation that is among other things the transformation of SMEs into 4.0 keys one of the main drivers for the revival of the production system.

Italy towards the turning point 4.0.
The market of Industry 4.0 projects in Italy in 2017 – between IT solutions, enabling technology components on traditional production assets and related services – reaches a value between 2.3 and 2.4 billion euro, of which 84% realized towards Italian companies and the rest as exports, showing an increase of 30% compared to last year which: read in a multiannual perspective, ratifies the almost doubling of the market in just three years. The 4.0 projects include an induction of around 400 million euros in “traditional” digital innovation projects.
These are some of the results of the research of the Industry 4.0 Observatory of the School of Management of the Milan Polytechnic. The Industrial IoT (referring to the only components to connect the machinery to the network) confirms itself as the most widespread 4.0 technology, with a value of around 1.4 billion euros (60% of the market, + 30% on the previous year).
Following Industrial Analytics with 410 million euros (20% of the market, + 25%) and Cloud Manufacturing with 200 million euros (10% of the market, + 35%), but among the first for growth.
8% of the market is represented by Advanced Automation solutions (145 million euros, + 20%), while the Advanced Human Machine Interface, even with a low total value (around 30 million euros), is the first for growth compared to last year (+ 50%).
Among the IT solutions, enabling technological components and related services, the project market has a value of 2,400 million euros.
90% covers industrial IoT, Analytics and Cloud Manufacturing.
The national plan is bearing fruit. Now focus on SMEs.

The level of knowledge increases on Industry 4.0: only 2.5% of the companies say they do not know the topic (two years ago it was almost 40%); 15% are in the exploratory phase, while 55% say they have already implemented 4.0 solutions: numbers that bear witness to the ferment of the Italian scenario of Industry 4.0, in which a good level of basic technology “literacy” (on average 90% of companies know the individual Smart Technologies).
The impact of the National Industry 4.0 Plan appears very positive: on a sample of 236 companies, 92% know the measures (84% a year ago), half say they have already used hyper and super-amortization for the renewal of their assets and one in four plans to do so shortly.
The distribution of investments that exploit these forms of incentive is varied, with 25% of the companies investing more than three million euros and 20% that has appropriated less than 200 thousand euros. With reference to the tax credit foreseen for 4.0 training, six out of ten companies declare that they will want to take advantage of it.
“Over the past two years, the market for industrial digitalisation has almost doubled, driven by a modern industrial policy and reinforced by incentives, while the awareness of Industry 4.0 and the knowledge of new technologies are now widespread in almost all the productive realities of the country – explain Alessandro Perego, Andrea Sianesi and Marco Taisch, Scientific Managers of the Industry 4.0 Observatory – Now it is necessary that every company align this digital maturity to its business objectives, starting from the fact that new technologies are the foundation of Industry 4.0 and not its point of arrival, rethinking processes and organizational models in the difficult balance between operational management, continuous improvement and radical innovation “.
“The National Plan has played an excellent role as an accelerator of the transformation 4.0 so far, both by spreading their knowledge and by favouring private investments in fiscal terms,” Perego, Sianesi and Taisch continue, “but it is likely that their stimulus can not continue. indefinitely: the next big challenge to consolidate and keep growing in the market will be to identify the right path to involve SMEs, which represent the true heart of Italian manufacturing, in the digital transformation. ”
The technology industry continues to represent an important economic accelerator for Italy. The proof of this statement is the processing, related to 2017, by Anie, a federation representing electrical engineering and electronic companies within Confindustria. DATA show an overall increase in revenues of 3, 8%, to 78 billion euro for electrotechnics and electronics, with an increase of 7, 8% for the first (58 billion) and 2, 7% for the second (20 billion) compared to 2016.
The uncertainty that characterized the early years seems to have been set aside, thanks also to the restart of investments, supported by the National plan and software for industry 4.0. A positive feeling that also extends to the export field: the annual increase in the Anie sectors is equal to 5,2% – about 30 million euro – with a +4,7% for electrical engineering and a +7,4 % for electronics, thanks to the growth in demand both from the European Union (+4,7%) and from abroad (+5,4%).
In 2017, total revenues increased by 3, 8% to 78 billion euro. The year 2018 confirms the positive trend, both in terms of turnover and orders
On the other hand, Anie technologies are directed towards the trends in the end markets which are variable: those for the industrial market confirm in 2017 a driving role and a decidedly dynamic trend, with an increase of 9, 1% in the previous year. Good news also from the construction sector, after a decade of strong weakness in conjunction with the global economic crisis: in this case the growth is 3, 9%, in line with the restart of construction investments. The energy market also sets aside the slowdown of 2016, both for traditional and renewable sources: the total turnover increases by 2, 9%.
The data processed by Anie (Confindustria) highlight the recovery of the strategic sector
On the contrary, negative news comes from Infrastructures and Transports, which show a decrease of 5, 8% linked also to a temporal misalignment in the orders accounting. The latter actually continues to grow and the turnover linked to the export of the sector rises by 9, 4%. Data from Anie Observatory, conducted on a sample of 130 representative companies, shows a positive point of view for the first half of 2018: 58% of companies show a growth in revenues compared to the first 6 months of 2017, while the increase in orders are about 63% of the sample.
ON THE FOREIGN FRONT there is a 46% increase in turnover. Encouraging news that should cover the second part of the year. Finally, employment: 86% of the organizations involved report stability.

Launch of the “4.0 Digital vouchers competition – A Measure” promoted by Unioncamere Lombardia in collaboration with the Lombard Chambers of Commerce: this will allow micro, small and medium-sized enterprises to obtain a contribution of up to 15.000 euro, in the form of consultancy, training and technological investments vouchers.
The OBJECTIVE is to promote the use of services and solutions in the implementation of the strategy defined in the National Business 4.0 Plan through the development of projects that involve collaboration between micro, SMEs and highly qualified subjects in the 4.0 field, in production chain aggregation logic and sharing of skills.
Overall, the allocation sums 1.6 million euro. The benefits will be granted to those presenting a shared project, in aggregated form (from 3 to 20 companies). The initiative can be registered by a proposer provided for by the competition or by the lead company. The granted benefits will cover 70% of the company’s investment based on a minimum effort of 5.000 euro. Applications between16th – 29th of October, only on Unioncamere Lombardia website.
The business grows thanks to software for industry 4.0. This was revealed during the last congress of Brescia organized by industry associations. “The valves and fittings sector is going through a positive period, and the value of investments in 2018 is destined to increase, stimulated by the 4.0 plan”. These are the words of Ugo Pettinaroli, chairman of AVR (Associazione valvole e rubinetti) and Ceir (Center for Exhibition Industry Research).
The two associations have promoted the “Ceir Congress 2018” held in Hotel Saoy in Gardone Riviera, with the participation of some important Brescian companies such as Carlo Gnutti, Almag and Rubinetterie Bresciane, and 12 represented nations of the world. These organizations have also developed thanks to the inclusion of software for industry 4.0 in the production chain. Among the many analyzed topics, we mention: the innovations concerning the sector, the revision of the framework directive on drinking water and the management of investments at national and global level.
The 2017 full year forecast on valves and fittings recorded a production equal to € 7,285 billion which is equivalent to an increase of 4, 1% compared to 2016 (€ 6,995 billion) and foresees a further increase of 1, 8% in 2018. Exports, on the other hand, met a slight decrease from € 4.46 billion to € 4.44 billion (-0, 4% on an annual basis), however, a net increase is imminent during this year (+ 3, 3%).
Employees on the Italian territory have grown from 27,180 to 27,285 (+ 0, 4%), as well as investments, despite the general uncertainty: from € 88, 5 million to € 98, 5 million (+11, 3%), with the possibility of another improvement of € 112 million in 2018.
Chairman Pettinaroli goes on saying that “Despite the climate of general uncertainty, these are positive numbers that give us confidence for the future; mainly for the industrial, sanitary and heating fittings sector, where Italy occupies a strong position in all three sectors: particularly in the Brescian and Novara areas”. Another topic of interest is that regarding exports, where Saudi Arabia occupies the first place with € 152,5 million in 2017 which marks a substantial increase compared to the previous year (+24,7%).
The United States, occupies the third place with € 138, 8 million (-32, 5%), outclassed also by Germany with € 146, 8 million, another country that suffered a heavy drop (-27, 1 %). However, the EU remains the most important outlet area with 36%, followed by Asia with a difference of only one percentage point. The difference with North America and the non-EU European countries, however, stands at 9%. Nowadays, a company can only grow if it takes a path towards the 4th industrial era, relying on the innovative software for industry 4.0.
