Automation of machines and production lines includes the design and the implementation of hardware and software infrastructures which need to adapt themselves to the existing applications. The critical step of an industrial automation consultancy is the integration of different disciplines that require multiple kind of professional specialists too. In fact, a good consulting service can count on several experts who know how to integrate electrical, electronic and mechanical systems with high and low level software solutions.
The industrial automation professional has to get in touch with the productive brain of a company he/she does not initially know: the relationship of trust that Adgenera intends to develop with the Customer is therefore fundamental. Understanding the Customer context and collaborating with the key players involved - from the Product Manager, to the Field Application Engineer to the Software Engineer - are the first steps to comply with time standards, as well as efficiency standards. The Consultant always needs to keep a flexible approach making good use of the enabling technologies connected to Smart Manufacturing. This approach necessarily includes to be compliant to principles of the Lean Manufacturing.
To give some examples, Adgenera offers turnkey solutions for system engineering aimed to optimize the applications also thanks to operator interfaces. The design of automatic machines and transport systems applies to various sectors: food, packaging, labeling, pharmaceuticals, etc.
The support in software and machine board development includes testing. Taking a step back, any successful project stems from a well-defined feasibility study. Here we proceed in collaboration with the customer to the analysis of the prerequisites and the definition of the project objectives. Then we come to a purely technical assessments such as the calculation of OEE and plant KPIs.
Industrial automation consultancy helps every company, whatever it's equipped with more structured or less structured systems. Adgenera has always offered solutions to small companies as well as multinational corporations. However, it is actually small and medium enterprises that can take the larges advantage from the Industry 4.0 incentives. In fact, often SMEs invest limited resources in digitization. Those incentives are confirmed for the three-year period 2022-2025. Thanks to Industria 4.0 plan, Italy's fiscal framework has many advantages for those companies that decide to invest in Italy, helping them with tax incentives and other industrial policy measures.
