This may not need to be said, but TenacIT is not an architecture firm, or an EPC company. What we are is an IT company that helps architecture firms and EPC companies with their technology needs, cause… last time we checked…they weren’t IT companies.
Back when we started working with Architecture, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (AEPC) companies, projects had a dedicated reprographics team, a dedicated document management team, teams of draftsmen and CAD specialists, dedicated IT personnel not to mention the specialized engineering groups. While technology certainly has made a huge change in how AEPC companies operate, there is also a lot of hype around “Industry 4.0” and the “Business 4.0 Framework.”
Industry 4.0, also known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, refers to the integration of advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and big data into manufacturing and industrial processes. This integration is expected to lead to a more efficient, flexible, and responsive manufacturing system, as well as improved communication and collaboration between different parts of the supply chain. Industry 4.0 is seen as a way to increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve product quality, and is expected to have a significant impact on manufacturing and industry. Industry 4.0 relies heavily on a number of advanced technologies, including:
By integrating advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Big Data into your manufacturing processes, you can achieve significant improvements in productivity, cost savings, and product quality.
IoT-enabled devices and sensors can provide real-time data on everything from machine performance to product quality, allowing you to quickly identify and address problems before they occur. AI can be used for tasks such as predictive maintenance, quality control, and process optimization, helping you make better decisions and reduce waste.
Big data analytics can help you make sense of the large volume of data generated by IoT devices, allowing you to gain valuable insights and improve your operations. Cloud computing and robotics can help you automate repetitive or dangerous tasks, while augmented reality can provide real-time information and assistance to your workers, improving efficiency and reducing errors.
All of these technologies work together to create a more flexible and responsive manufacturing system that can quickly adapt to changing market conditions and customer demands.
By implementing Industry 4.0, you can stay ahead of the competition and achieve real, measurable improvements in your manufacturing operations. Whether you are looking to improve your bottom line, increase your product quality, or simply stay ahead of the curve, Industry 4.0 has something to offer. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you implement Industry 4.0 in your manufacturing operations.
Crazy as it may be to say, TenacIT is not a proponent of the so called “Industry 4.0”. We prefer to call it Information Technology. And what does Information Technology do, if not help advance the efficiencies of a company. AR, VR, AI, IoT, DX, XYZ, ABC are all just the latest in technology trends that provide, for some companies, the ability to perform work faster, cheaper and/or more reliably, not unlike the telephone or the internet…or the typewriter.
What TenacIT IS a proponent of, is finding the right-sized solution for the actual issue your company faces. A specific solution for a specific problem. Not a solution because some guy had a great sales pitch. If AR/VR is the right tool for your problem, cool. Let TenacIT help make sure you’re not over engineering a solution when making that decision.
So let’s start with some of the basic solutions that have a 100% ROI.
Look, TenacIT knows the AEPC industries are equipped to handle many of these issues and “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. That said, “if it ain’t working the way you think it should, Call TenacIT.” OK…that really isn’t a quote, but who knows…maybe we can actually help.
One of our Nerds will be contacting you soon.
Think through these questions before your call to help us recommend the right solution.
