VIMS is a consortium project conducted by technology-leading companies to build a solution from the ground up, that ensures a new reality for Industry 4.0. The solution boosted by Capgemini Engineering, Roche, and Glartek enables a unique IIoT platform supported by Augmented Reality (AR) Digital Twin capabilities to ensure three business applications for manufacturing: Monitoring System in real-time with predictive, calibration, and performance, Virtual training, and Assisted operator.

“We are excited to partner with leading companies in such innovative projects. Working with technologies like Augmented Reality and on-the-fly Digital Twins on major projects makes us grow and be a core Industrial Transformation player in Portugal and internationally.” Bruno Duarte, Glartek’s CEO.

Glartek, a leader in innovative Augmented Reality (AR) solutions for field services, the asset-intensive and manufacturing industries, unveiled a major project developed with 2 leaders (Capgemini, and Roche) that will address major Industrial use cases.

The project called VIMS (Virtual IoT Manufacturing System) presents as the main goal the development and industrialization of a cutting-edge, innovative, and integrated digital ecosystem. This new technology will address major industrial and manufacturing use cases.

Overall, the goal of the VIMS project will be to bring a new reality to digital manufacturing and digital industries, to make them benefit from (1) real-time systems monitoring; (2) virtual training; (3) an assisted front-line worker.
The technology involved in the project combines IIoT, AI, and Digital Twins. In detail, the technologies will contribute to the project as follows:

  • IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things): collect data
  • AI (Artificial Intelligence): Smart instructions to optimize data collection
  • Digital twin with AR (Augmented Reality): Create a Factory Digital Twin to enable the visualization of the processes executed on the assembly line.

The ultimate goal is to create a Factory Digital Twin that showcases the processes and operations that happen across the shop floor. And, provide operators, engineers, and managers with full control of the physical production line or factory.

The process will be applied to different use cases to ensure the true value that this kind of technology can bring to the industry. The tests will take place with our partners such as ROCHE (pharmaceutical industry), in different regions across the world: Spain, Germany, and Switzerland.
