– Organization of teams (governance, skills, budget …) for the implementation in 2018 of a dozen of PoCs and pilots build around several technological bricks: RFID, MES, Cobot, AGV, augmented reality …

The implementation of the defined 4.0 strategy began with a first PoC based on Raspberry pi technology. It aims to improve the control of ovens and reduce non-quality.
