In the past october, 16  took place in the DRT installations the Open Shop Floor, an event powered by COTEC Portugal and IAPMEI that integrate the government initiative “Industry 4.0”. These sessions aim to address the way companies adopt the different concepts of this norm and promote the sharing of experiences among the various entities present.

This event was attended by entities from north to south of Portugal linked to different sectors, from textiles, molds, higher education institutions, research and technological development companies, business associations, among others.

With the constant advance and innovation in new technologies, themes such as artificial intelligence are a reason for success for companies that bet on this dynamic. DRT believes that the key to success lies in the constant search for new processes that promote efficiency and effectiveness in the management and production of the company. It was with this in mind that DRT Rapid developed its latest advanced management software, SBI – System for Business Intelligence.

To the presents was introduced the way that these system is integrated in the management and production process inside DRT and how it benefits in all production phases.

In this way we thank COTEC Portugal, IAPMEI and all those who were present in this sharing experiences and knowledge.

SBI public presentation

The SBI public presentation was yesterday and it was an opportunity to show all the joint work done between DRT Advance and IPL during the last year, regarding the enhancement of the SBI implementation process and the customer support processes.

The event took place on IPL installations in Leiria and several DRT Advance’s partners and clients were there to see the results of this collaboration.

The focus on client support is crucial for DRT Advance to accomplish our full commitment with our client’s needs, and so the partnership with IPL allowed us to get new and improved tools to manage client updates and instalments.

The close contact with academic institutions is a priority for DRT Advance. These partnerships allow both parties to share knowledge and train new professionals in real-life contexts, allowing to sustain an added value growth for the future.

Artificial Intelligence, for project management in the industry

The event that was a great way to launch the SBI (System Business Intelligence), a system developed by DRT Rapid and the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (IPL) took place on the 6th of December at 09:30 at School of Technology and Management (ESTG). Based on the use of Artificial Intelligence, this advanced production planning and management software for the moulds and special tools industry allows, through the integration of many systems, to simplify and boost the overall management of the mould production process, enhancing its effectiveness and efficiency in the manager’s decision-making. It is therefore a revolutionary tool that enables real productivity gains, cost and time reduction, thus allowing the systematization of processes and responding to the preparation of companies to Industry 4.0. The benefits may be summed up by the system’s slogan: “When data becomes knowledge, progress has no limits.”
