A*STAR launches model factory for manufacturers to test latest technologies
Another company that has joined hands with ARTC is turbocharger maintenance company Tru-Marine. Its executive chairman David Loke said the firm is working on a pilot to digitise a part of its workshop that produces spare parts.
Mr Loke has reconfigured the factory layout to maximise efficiency, and hopes to eventually link up the production process to a central machine so that employees can monitor the machines’ information in real-time and make better decisions on the floor.
“This is a small step towards transforming our company into a digital enterprise,” he said. “We have seven cells in our workshop and should finish our pilot on the first cell by the end of this year. If it works, we will replicate this to other parts of our factory.”
