We are developing programs and machines capables of greater adaptability to the needs and production processes, allocating the available resources in a more efficient and profitable way, incorporating greater flexibility and individualization of the manufacturing processes. We are working to make the virtual world of computers and the Internet and the physical world of machines become just one.

With industrial automation that will integrate dat-to-day data capture systems and the possibilities of wireless communications, productive units will gain the ability to obtain data that will be exchanged between their processes.

Manufacturers must manage large amounts of data in order to achieve that efficiency and flexibility, which will not be possible without software to facilitate this management.
