The IVECO factory in Valladolid has been recognised for its innovation, quality and continuous improvement with an award that once again positions the plant as a benchmark for Industry 4.0 in Spain. The factory was selected as winner in the main category "Leadership in the digital transformation of the industrial plant" by the jury panel of the Factories of the Future Awards 2022, organised by Advanced Factories, for its project "Efficient transformation in 4 stages: ideal model (benchmarking), loss measurement, increased competitiveness and maximum return applications."
"Advanced Factories has become a benchmark in southern Europe for automation, robotics and digitalisation. With the aim of supporting our business ecosystem in its transformation and giving visibility to disruptive proposals, we have recognised IVECO Valladolid for its commitment to advanced technology in the context of an industrial plant. Specifically, we evaluated the link between the digital environment and the human team in supporting each of the stages of improvement which were identified, with the aim of eliminating major losses within the factory and increasing competitiveness – a topic which is very much in line with the ideas promoted by Advanced Factories," said Óscar Iñigo, the director of the Industry 4.0 Congress, which is organised under the auspices of Advanced Factories, and a member of the jury.
