New businesses have had the opportunity to weigh the benefits of the software for managing the production process put forward by GP Progetti. Here are the specific sectors that have turned to the suite eNX® 10 in the last few weeks:
– Cold stamping and laser cutting (3D and 2D);
– Production and trade of non-ferrous metals;
– Production and trade of semi-finished products (silver and copper);
– Production and trade of chemical products for the galvanic industry;
– Production of forged wheels.
GP Progetti’s new clients, who are leaders of their sectors in Europe and all over the world, have chosen to turn to this software for managing the production process with a view to guaranteeing high performances, in line with global competitors.
GP Progetti’s software was devised to allow Italian small-medium enterprises to be competitive in the global market. Many of GP’s clients, in contrast to big groups, are more flexible given the smaller structural weight. The quickness to cater for customers’ needs and the capacity to customise offers: these are some of the strong points that characterise the average Italian businesses. These businesses can turn to the suite eNX® 10 to upgrade without giving up on their specific features.
More specifically, for a firm producing forged wheels, we are talking about a “technological extension”: today, the whole factory is managed by the eNX 10 software.
GP Progetti’s client was one of the first to be equipped with a piece of software for managing the production process: a perfect example of how the principles of the “lean production” can be applied to medium enterprises as well. Improvement, as always, depends first and foremost on human resources, and then on technological support giving the appropriate feedback and optimising the production process. Within a business, the newly presented suite eNX®in, its new update 10.0, optimises every process: design, production and packing.
The route taken by GP Progetti’s new clients is undoubtedly successful. As it is proved by the rise in sales recorded in recent years. Technology and computerisation rank first for forward-thinking entrepreneurs that conceive the efficiency of the processes and the quality of the product as unmissable elements to secure their leading places in a world which is more and more competitive.
The impact of Industry 4.0 on the manufacturing industry: software to manage and optimise the production line
Whether we call it Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, or Era of Digital Machines, it still remains clear that we are witnessing a new revolution in manufacturing. This revolution is enabled, among other things, by companies that develop software for managing and optimising production processes, such as the Brescia-based company GP Progetti.
In the market of the industrial machinery employed by manufacturing companies, the impact of new technology will result in computerised production, with more efficient production lines and more and more complex machines which are linked to each other. When we talk about the 4th Industrial Revolution, we generally refer to the machines used in an integrated production line providing live data as far as the process and the very machines are concerned.
Which are the keywords and the concepts that will mark the industrial sector in the future?
According to the experts, the market will certainly tend to focus on Industry 4.0-related themes. And this new Industrial Revolution is precisely what the small manufacturing enterprises are looking forward to in the sectors of weapons, cars and motors, foundries, process industries, woodworks, mechanics, plastic and rubber, smallwares and thermic processing.
The European Plan aims to allow enterprises to change the way in which they do business, i.e. through digitalisation.
Companies such as GB Progetti, which lead manufacturing industries into the 4th Industrial Revolution, take this concept seriously, considering the entire life cycle of a product: from the order, through design, quality control, up to the actual making of the final product and eventually to the delivery. All this is achieved through sophisticated connections between the machines and through software to manage and optimise the production line.
According to the experts, in Italy the Plan Industry 4.0 has reawakened the interest of a lot of entrepreneurs. In the past few years, SME have started to work differently, to experiment with new technology to make sure that they don’t lag behind.
Using new technology and software to manage and optimise production is a crucial step to take for Italian SMEs because up to now they have only been relying on their abilities alone. From a global point of view, though, having the best manufacturers helps only to a certain extent.
