They all aimed to increase the efficiency of processes and improve the traceability of processes.

Phases of the project

This developed a medium-term strategic vision and a roadmap of various initiatives that facilitate the acceleration of the digital transformation process and increase competitiveness thanks to innovative elements in the various production processes.

The implementation of this project takes place at the headquarters of the Asturian company in Granda-Siero. The facility is planned for the summer of this year.

Project and Covid-19

The project started in the second week of March, a few days before delivery. In these two months, around 55 people were involved in the analysis and commissioning.
