This project is part of a bigger plan to transform, digitise and connect all of Sonae Arauco's operations and drive further innovation. In the future, we see manufacturing as a smart, connected, agile and data-driven process.
Partnerships & Teamwork
The solution is based on knowledge and developments in Decision Support Systems from LMS and INESC-TEC, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning from FEUP and LMS, and IoT architecture systems from InnoWave and INESC-TEC. InnoWave is the technology up-taker (business owner), ensuring that project developments are taken to the market. Sonae Arauco, a linked third party of Sonae, acts as an industrial end-user.
Continuing with the implementation of the project despite the unexpected challenges caused by COVID-19, proved the commitment and value of all project partners. For a project leader, this was a comforting and rewarding moment.
Thanks to our partners’ deep expertise, we deliver a solution that will empower shop floor staff to better perform their jobs.
