Manufacturing Summit 2018

The 5th national Manufacturing Summit conference –  was held on November 14, 2018 in Wrocław, where over 100 delegates, including Integris and representatives of companies from the manufacturing industry interested in the development of digital strategies gathered. The meeting attracted authorities from business and industry circles who willingly shared their expertise and knowledge and discussed an important problem related to the digital transformation of production.
The fourth industrial revolution, about which we hear so much today, makes us wonder if this is the right time to start digitization and automation processes within a company, the so-called digital transformation. First, however, the speakers focused on discussing existing problems and issues within the organization and its work culture:

  • Data management for business improvement
  • Why does Industry 4.0 becomes so popular and what can companies gain thanks to ubiquitous digitalization?
  • Are companies ready for a digital revolution? Do the tools available on the market meet the needs of producers?
  • Searching for new areas of improvement
  • Improving the organizational culture and the increasingly difficult situation on the job market.

The programme included lectures and presentations of the latest technologies and solutions that can improve efficiency of factories and supply chains and make production even more intelligent. Particularly noteworthy was Microsoft’s remote presentation, which presented the concept of “Factory of the Future”, based on the Microsoft Dynamics 365 solution integrated with the latest technologies such as HoloLens. This example shows us what the future of production will look like from the leading experts.
The conference was a unique opportunity to see how the industry evaluates and implements Industry 4.0 and an opportunity to learn about new technologies and applications that can improve productivity within the company, as well as to establish new contacts with suppliers and peers in the industry.

How Microsoft HoloLens and intelligent technologies will shape our future. Microsoft Ignite 2018

One of the most important events in the entire Microsoft calendar – the Microsoft Ignite conference has already started. The annual meeting of business leaders began on September 24 in Orlando, Florida.
During this year’s Ignite conference, Microsoft presented a range of products and new technologies that will soon reach a wider audience and become available to the public. The conference schedule includes interactive workshops, discussion panels and many technological innovations from the world of Microsoft.
Current issues that were raised at the conference include: artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing (Azure), virtual reality (AR) and solutions for business and news for Microsoft Dynamics 365 developers.
We were particularly interested in the topic of the growing reality of AR and mixed reality with the participation of Microsoft Holo Lens.

Mixed reality, a phrase recently used more and more often by Microsoft, for which the next update was just announced, such as new functions and two new applications for HoloLens – Remote Assist and Microsoft Layout, which are already available to be tested by Dynamics 365 and Microsoft HoloLens users, in preview version. They are so-called Mixed reality apps – that is, mixed-reality applications that close the gap between the real world and the augmented reality (AR).
Remote Assist – A remote expert can be located anywhere in the world in a minute, connecting via Microsoft Teams, where you can allow the inspectors to be able to remotely inspect objects in real time. For objects around the world, and even distant places to which you can not always get.

New features in HoloLens include Research mode – for companies that create their own specialized applications and new functions for enterprise management, such as many logins for the same HoloLens device, which makes it easier to share it in the company. With Media Transport Protocol you can connect your HoloLens, copy and transport files to and from the device. Improved MDM features to help you set up and manage your device. You can display objects in 3d, and when you look at them and move, they are interactive. You can also create and display your own virtual locations, rooms, spaces, etc. The Windows mixed reality platform is constantly evolving so that you can personalize your real and mixed reality worlds.

HoloLens is a completely new technology and solution. Organizations that look to the future use transformational technology to change the way they do business. Transformation technology is one that will take your company to a higher level. Microsoft HoloLens allows you to perform activities that were not possible in the past. It improves the management of activities, facilitates work and has a positive effect on organizing your work. This is the future of many organizations and perhaps soon HoloLens will become another device used in the company, just like we use laptops and mobile phones today, which are part of basic equipment used every day by employees. This is a new technology and is really interesting.

Microsoft HoloLens features:

Voice and video calls without hands (handsfree)
Annotations in mixed realities: drawing + arrows
Enterprise AAD authentication and single login
OneDrive integration and image sharing – supports JPG, TIFF, PNG, BMP file formats and non-animated GIF
Broadcasts in mixed-reality technology: HoloLens users can share their view with another application by running
Remote Assistance in the background
Shooting in mixed mode: HoloLens users can capture different images of reality during conversations
Screen sharing: Experts can display their computer screen to view HoloLens users
Cross-platform functionality from Microsoft HoloLens and PC
