The aim of this project is to enable improvements and a new platform for the company’s solutions, so as to offer concepts, technological innovations and procedures yet to be discovered in the areas of Manufacturing Simulation and Management and Factory Floor Supervision. This new platform should enrich the solutions that exist today, enabling better communication between industrial plants, their control from a single location and access to the situation of each of them wherever they are, at any time, in real time. The real time monitoring of crucial moments in processes and the alerting to any deviations that might occur enables the immediate taking of management and/or corrective actions. The aim is to be able to act at the moment deviations are noticed and not merely be limited to reacting to the report of what actually happened. The warnings could be given in synoptic screens, on the machines themselves and in luminous and/or sonic panels, among other means. The commercial potential of this project is extremely broad, since its implementation will establish Netz Informática in the segment of software developers geared to industrial solutions and will permit the company to compete on equal terms (technology and price) with similar foreign companies in the internal and external market.
