SmarterChains is developing a platform to help factories modernize their operations. SmarterChains aims to democratize Industry 4.0 manufacturing expertise, replacing critical thinking with intelligent algorithms. The platform can understand how advanced a factory is and the core strengths, opportunities and gaps. Then, it tests millions of scenarios to build the optimal digital transformation roadmap towards the Factory of the Future. The recommended roadmap is a step-by-step path describing the new technologies to implement, the organizational foundations to support them and the digital skills needed to ensure they succeed.
