KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 (Bernama) — Local industrial automation specialist Galactic Advance Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd today launched its landmark technology, GENiE Smart Factory Solution, to increase the adoption of smart manufacturing practices among industrial players in Malaysia and the South East Asia (SEA) region.
The smart factory is a cloud-based process intelligent solution that aims to empower better decision making on what’s happening on the production floor.
“GENiE obtains real process values and parameters of production operations and it comes from data acquisition, aggregating, analysing and sharing.
“This data is extrapolated and translated into a user-friendly dashboard interface to allow continuous tracking of processes or machinery,” it said in a statement.
The GENiE Smart Factory was launched by International Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Dr Ong Kian Ming.
Chief executive officer Sakhtivel Narayanasamy said, “There have been many concepts talked about the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0) and its power to revolutionise, but we believe these concepts can be converted into applicable solutions like the GENiE Smart Factory that enables an innovative shift in manufacturing operations for the next three years.”
Meanwhile, Quantum Computing Sdn Bhd has been appointed as the marketing and promotion office of the smart factory and aims to support up to 150 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in their IR 4.0 journey in 2019.
The company is optimistic, saying it expects to sign up 300 industry players yearly across SEA as users of GENiE starting in 2020.
