ThinkIQ | March 02, 2022
On March 1, ThinkIQ, a pioneer of continuous intelligence across the material-centric supply chain, announced the availability of ThinkIQ Vision, which builds on its integration with Atollogy's technology for easy-to-deploy, non-intrusive Industry 4.0 solutions.
Atollogy was a forward-thinking software company dedicated to making operational excellence simple and accessible to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Their patented algorithms and artificial intelligence skills have transformed the way businesses operate by automatically digitizing the physical environment and transforming it into valuable business information. Atollogy's platform automatically and continuously monitors physical assets, operators, materials, operational states, and safety processes in many industrial facilities using cameras and other non-traditional sensors. These data points are then turned into insights for managing and optimizing operations.
Manufacturers today want a new degree of information that enables revolutionary decision-making throughout the manufacturing process and supply chain. Integrating Atollogy's technology into the ThinkIQ suite of solutions enhances a manufacturer's visibility into its operations and speeds the effectiveness with which people and systems respond to rapidly changing situations.
"ThinkIQ is truly excited to add Atollogy's software capabilities to our growing portfolio of smart manufacturing solutions, This additional technology brings a powerful new set of edge deployment options for sensors, networks, and computers that ThinkIQ can bring to all our customers. We're thrilled to welcome the Atollogy team to the ThinkIQ family as we work together to enhance our Continuous Intelligence platform."
-Doug Lawson, CEO of ThinkIQ.
Joining forces with ThinkIQ gives us the ability to share our technology with more organizations across the globe," said Rob Schoenthaler, Founder and CEO of Atollogy. We share a vision to accelerate innovation, and together we will be able to help manufacturers and their supply chain partners improve their operations. We're proud of what we've accomplished through our employees' and partners' contributions, and are very excited about this next chapter.
"Constant supply chain disruption has made end-to-end visibility and continuous intelligence – from raw materials to the factory floor – even more important,By integrating Atollogy's technology into the ThinkIQ suite of solutions, manufacturers will be able to further extend their continuous intelligence insights across the supply chain in a way that is much simpler and more cost-effective than existing alternatives."
-John Dyck, CEO of CESMII, The Smart Manufacturing Institute
ThinkIQ is the market's first platform-based continuous intelligence solution. It can be operationalized at various levels, including supply chain, product quality, process improvement, and any time-sensitive process that benefits from responding to what is happening in real-time throughout the manufacturing process. Analytics is integrated directly into operational processes, which can perform or initiate actions in response to particular circumstances being met. This includes everything from time-sensitive warnings that direct staff to the appropriate course of action to completely automated procedures that initiate downstream activities without human participation.
Skillful Craftsman | March 03, 2022
Skillful Craftsman Education Technology Ltd. ("the Company") (NASDAQ: EDTK), a provider of interactive online learning services, today announced the signing of a strategic cooperation agreement (the "Agreement") with Jiangsu Hibao Tech Software Co., Ltd. ("Hibao"), a provider of smart factory technology, to develop the Meta-Factory, a smart technical skills training platform.
Both parties agree that they will develop Meta-Factory for the purpose of providing vocational colleges and manufacturing industry customers with multi-person collaborative and multi-scene simulation training bases that will enable them to effectively cater to the rapidly changing labor market for manufacturing factories. Hibao undertakes to offer basic manufacturing industry data, and the company agrees to be responsible for developing a virtual reality ("VR") smart operating platform and establishing vocational training centers.
The Meta-Factory combines virtual reality ("VR") and augmented reality ("AR") technology with advanced immersive user interaction design to assist students in simulating the operation of each step in a smart factory and enhance their learning experience through a high-quality virtual simulation environment. With the integration of various types of production data, three-dimensional spatial data, management data, personnel data, and other static data input via sensors and networks, Meta-Factory is expected to replicate virtual factory buildings, workshops, equipment, personnel, production environments, and dynamic manufacturing processes on a full scale with three-dimensional simulation display, full range adjustment, and scene switching. The Meta-cloud-based Factory's collaborative application module enables time, data, location, production process, and personnel synchronization, enabling real-time monitoring and administration of production processes, logistics, and space, equipment, and employees. Additionally, Meta-Factory will facilitate interaction and communication amongst students in various positions.
"We are very excited to cooperate with Hibao to develop our Meta-Factory by leveraging our respective advantages and have a high expectation for what Meta-Factory can bring to the vocational education industry. Building a Metaverse platform is significant for vocational students to have an immersive skills training experience that meets the trend of the industry. Following the guidelines of the Chinese government and its plan to promote vocational education, we are committed to serving students and vocational colleges with our technologies and upgraded skill training platform, helping them meet the rapid development trend of modern smart factories. The development of Meta-Factory is a significant milestone for the company to pave the way to achieve a long-term goal of providing high-quality training to students. "
