Industry 4.0

Answering the challenges of digital transformation

We are the ideal partner to increase your efficiency and competitiveness, developing strategies for productive innovation and R&D, in response to the challenges of the digital transformation of the 4th industrial revolution.

Our Methodology

01

We define a vision.

02

We apprise strategies.

03

We execute strategies efficiently.

04

We seek funding.

05

We empower people.

We carry out diagnosis on Industry 4.0 and collaborate with our customers in the definition and implementation of digitization strategies, which typically combine the reengineering of processes with resource to Lean & 6 Sigma methodologies and the integration between commercial software and tailored apps, to ensure a continuous and traceable data flow, with continuous generation of knowledge and value for companies.

 

The SINMETRO team is the ideal partner to implement i4.0 projects, which aim the definition, implementation and financing of a digitization strategy common to the key areas of its value chain.

 

These strategies combine commercial software and tailored apps as, typically, they integrate implicit business logic.

Project Methodology

01 Diagnosis

Through visits to the “shop floor” and interviews with those responsible for each of the key areas, we carry out a diagnosis of the state of the art of the organization and its business processes, given the industry 4.0 challenges.

02 DIGITALIZATION STRATEGIES

Following the diagnosis, we prepared a report with the indication of strategies to be adopted for the digital transformation and its framing in financing systems for Productive Innovation, SME Qualification or Research & Development (R&D) and also the SIFIDE tax incentive.

 

In this phase, we analyse aspects such as:

• Overview of the digitalization strategy, including key operations in the value chain.

• Team (internal and external, for example, with strategic partners) to be set up to ensure the implementation of the digitalization strategy and the following coordination and management model.

• Organic governance model of the company and process architecture.

• Map of KPIs in order to ensure the reliability of the data.

• Technological architecture needed to support digitalization.

• Financing strategy.

03 APPLICATIONS FOR FUNDING SOURCES

In a “turnkey” process, we develop applications for incentive systems.

04 IMPLEMENTING THE DIGITALIZATION STRATEGY

Redefinition of business processes and the tools that support them, as well as the training of people. In the development of these projects, the SINMETRO team takes the key role of execution, coordination and management, defining:

• Digitalization strategy implementation and management plan.

• Strategic information systems for the business and their costs.

• Software development.

• Deployment, specification and configuration of information systems.

• Rules of integration between technology suppliers and systems, to ensure a continuous information flow and to avoid redundancies and manual operations.

• People’s training plan to work on new processes and its support systems, following specific software training.

4th Industrial Revolution

The 4th Industrial Revolution implies a change in attitude and the clear perception that we live in a global world – interconnected and radically open – where the only certainty is the uncertainty and the acquired source of competitive advantage is knowledge, with information and technologies accessible to all.

Ignoring this reality and blocking this process of change will certainly be a huge mistake.

It should also be noted that, regardless of their size, companies are focused on increasing sustainable value creation for the market, which is why it is vital to invest in the enhancement of its driving force, “the people”, in quality and differentiation through innovating product / service / business model, in increasing operational efficiency through process and organizational innovation, digitalization of processes, elimination of non-added value tasks and consequent reduction in costs and errors, as well as in the increase of technological and productive capacity.
