Advanced Factories Conference Barcelona

Zibawa assisted  the advanced manufacturing conference in Barcelona, where a number of manufacturers are show casing their offers for Industrie 4.0.  While the benefits of connected machinery are clear, the barriers to acceptance appear to be the difficulty in connecting to existing machinery and compatibility issues.   While many of the big manufacturers are recognizing the merits of open source, many are now claiming that there systems are “open” since they are offering developers the possibility to sell “apps” based on their systems.    However we recommend that end users ensure that they install systems which are truly modular and open, to ensure that they remain in control of their data  and can grow and evolve their systems as new technology emerges.
