Industry is a key element for country development and for employment quality, by providing more qualified and stable jobs than other economic sectors. For this reason, innovation in the industry is today the main key to economic competitiveness. Innovation means moving towards an industry 4.0, consisting of:
- Digitalisation and integration of processes vertically and horizontally across the entire organisation;
- Digitalisation of product and service offerings, using Big Data to refine products and meet the increasing needs of end-customers;
- Digital business models and customer access, optimising customer interaction.
In this context, InnoResolve project aims to transfer the benefits of the digital revolution to the foundry industry, developing a collaborative on-line Training Program, based on the methodology of problem solving, and a Guide that shows the new challenges of the foundry in the partner countries, as well as a collection of good practices and case studies of innovation processes in Foundries 4.0.
