Not for profit industry development group DMTC Ltd is pioneering an innovative programme that brings together half a dozen like minded defence manufacturers to implement ‘smart enough’ Industry 4.0 technologies to begin their digitisation journey.
DMTC’s industry capability development programme leader Charlotte Morris said DMTC provides the SMEs with hardware and open source software to begin to measure such things as machine utilisation and the tracking of jobs through the production process.
She said: “Smaller companies tend to see barriers to Industry 4.0 implementation such as the perceived cost, that they don’t have enough technical know-how in house, and they are unsure of the likely ROI.
“In fact we believe in the art of the possible – things do not have to be overly complicated – often smart enough is good enough to see real value.”
