Smart Factory: the smart and strategic route to Industry 4.0 in a united team

Optimise your performance, efficiency and customer service: let De Roeve Industries transform your production enterprise to a ‘Smart Factory’. We work closely with you to co-create intelligent structures and systems that will move your enterprise and employees to the next level.

Next-level industrial automation with Industry 4.0

The terms ‘Smart Factory’, ‘Smart Industry’ or ‘Industry 4.0’ refer to maximising digitalisation and connectivity in your production environment. Production, machines, software and humans are closely linked to one another, optimising interaction and performance.

De Roeve Industries has already built up more than 25 years of experience creating software and coupling administrative and industrial systems. To transform your enterprise into a smart production industry or smart factory, we go far beyond just developing and implementing systems. Our Smart Factory systems keep people centre stage and we always emphasise close collaboration and co-creation with you. We develop innovative solutions perfectly matched to your needs; we provide support to you and your employees so that you can get the most out of your new systems. This ensures that everyone receives the information they need to make smart decisions, faster.

Approach:
5 steps to a Smart Factory


1. Opportunity scan
We map out current challenges and future opportunities.


2. Multilevel strategy

We determine the objectives and establish responsibilities.


3. Conceptual design
We develop a conceptual design from both directions: top down (business drivers and functional requirements) and bottom up (shop floor requirements and technical specifications). We then draw up an implementation plan at production and ERP level.


4. Implementation & roll-out
We generate a detailed analysis, proof of concept (POC) and roll-out for each partial solution.


5. Value capture

We help you to achieve results and provide guidance on how you can use your smart solution to generate added value.
