Duracell embraces Industry 4.0

Meet our customer at his production site in Aarschot (Belgium) on November 9th, 2017 for a knowledge sharing event on the latest developments towards Industry 4.0. 

How do you remain competitive as a manufacturing company in Europe?

“By innovating with digital solutions that can minimize the number of machine stand-stills and breakdowns”, says Stefaan Boterberg, Plant Manager at Duracell Aarschot.

Duracell Aarschot chose, together with Innovation partner Ometa and Digital Transformaker partner Devoteam, for a system of ‘digital real-time event management’. This new platform makes sure that the right information is available for all relevant information islands throughout the entire organisation, always and real-time. Bringing important ‘machine event data’ immediately to the right people. The result is efficiency gains and much less errors.

How does this fit with the design principles of a SAP ERP-system? Stefaan Boterberg (Plant Manager Duracell Aarschot), Paul Nuyts (Project Manager Duracell Aarschot) and Luc Deleu will explain you on November 9th, 2017:
