Digitalization offers businesses new opportunities to create additional value for customers. Lakana was recently engaged by an Eindhoven based mechatronics manufacturing company to provide advice and consultancy on the use of digital technologies to help them achieve these benefits.
The customer’s engineering department had created a list of innovative ideas for software solutions that could add value to the systems they design and manufacture. Initial assessment of the list by Lakana led to two observations: firstly, while most of the ideas had merit it became clear that one, namely Predictive Maintenance, could be directly linked to a current business opportunity; secondly, many of the customer’s ideas had in common the use of IIOT, Big Data, Business Analytics and, ultimately, the application of A.I. or M.L. software technology.
