Smart Manufacturing : the expert point of view

"The fourth industrial revolution does not only involve the productive process, its efficiency and its productivity, but also the ability to interconnect and enable all productive resources (physical and personal goods, both indoors and outside the plant) to cooperate, and through the use of a new factor of production, data and information, operation of whole value chains, all this allows for an increasing integration between factories, subcontractors and end customers This fourth revolution triggers a profound reformulation of business models and market approaches.Technologies, allowing the 4 .0 paradigm, are numerous and synthesized in three main areas:

- The availability of digital data and Big Data analysis
- Advanced robotics and automation
- Additive manufacturing

sedApta-osys is able to position a unique portfolio, able to improve connectivity between machines and people:

Extreme connectivity

People & Process The re-definition of standard processes has become one of the most critical points in the current manufacturing context. O.S.A. natively integrates all components of the sedApta suite and can be easily integrated with third-party software - enabling the creation of a company's Digital Twin process, supporting the organization of a structured connectivity network. Building on OSA solutions, sedApta is able to provide sedApta suite components in a modular environment, support interoperability, and coordinate and orchestrate complex business flows (internal and external to the organization), multi-role situations, in a multi-product space.

Technology Learning Support: SUPPORTING novice users who need to perform new processes, tasks and activities during the adoption phase of new software systems and applications within their organizations. Several studies have shown that when learning repetitive procedures with traditional methods, the average user forgets:

- 42% of what he learned, 20 minutes after the training,
- 67% after 24 hours,
- 79% after one month.

For this reason, a support strategy for change management based solely on traditional methods and eLearning classes is sufficient.

More and more companies are turning to the 10:20:70 method, which is an ideal blend of methodologies for contextual learning in digital change projects, which involves:


The creation of a Smart Factory implies the adoption of an open and interconnected infrastructure that would allow management and monitoring of all business processes in real time, and that would support the implementation of orchestrated solutions. These solutions can make a decisive contribution to the creation of added value for the company, provided that they support the company and its users in the best way and at the best time. Local reprocessing with "legacy" disconnected systems forces companies to forego already available technologies to support S & OP and MO processes as well as reduce execution times and make them dynamic and able to support event-driven scenarios "Modeled from real data. The technological elements thus become facilitators with regard to the complexity of the interactions between processes and people.
