The project is now in its final stage of development, with an Alfa prototype being tested. In addition, the Beta prototype is also under development, which aims to pre-industrialize the solution and will be tested in the laboratory to be later installed in an industrial environment.
According to Ricardo Ribeiro, head of R&D and Efacec’s Digital Asset Management project: “We are very proud to have come this far, competing with leading companies in the field of technological innovation. This achievement attests to Efacec’s commitment to an increasingly aggregating innovation. And the “Smart Digital Transformer Management Solution” is one of them”.
For 2022, the goal is to launch the first version of the industrialized product.
