Audi Brussels reconciles the human dimension, automation and the environment Few Factories of the Future were as ripe for an award as Audi Brussels. “Within a few months the audit was successfully completed and we were awarded the title of Factory of the Future,” said Jan Maris, Audi Production Manager in Forest. “An overview of our workplace supported all the achievements we had put down on paper.” The award recognised the efforts of all employees in the CO2-neutral factory and motivates us to achieve the goal of a zero-emission factory by 2025.
Industrial AI developer Yazzoom scores big at hackathons Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already strongly present in the worlds of IT and finance. However, the industry needs good AI products, and the Ghent-based Yazzoom saw an opportunity in this area. As a specialist in AI, machine learning and data analysis, they developed their own software product for the industry: Yanomaly. And the results are impressive: Yazzoom invariably scores very high at hackathons, and Yanomaly has been in daily use by its first customers for more than 2 years now.
Picanol, a company undergoing transformation: "It is necessary to weave close links between the staff and the technology" A well-known player ... that's the least we can say about the Picanol group. It is the world's largest manufacturer of weaving machines, a forerunner in innovation and firmly rooted in Ypres. We wanted to find out how such an impressive company puts the principles of the Factory of the Future into practice. Geert Ostyn, Senior Vice-President Business Transformation & Strategic Alignment of the company, gave us the answer.
Total Ertvelde, a Factory of the Future firmly rooted in the past Everyone knows Total, whether it is as a stop on the road to fill up on petrol, or as an energy supplier. However, few people know that this French group’s flagship of lubricant production, logistics and analysis is located on our territory. The French call this site 'La Vitrine' on the Ghent-Terneuzen canal, which reflects the pioneering role that the 'Little Belgians' have played here for 30 years, a history of growth in which not only technology but also people play a leading role. This unbridled desire to always do better is now reflected in the first Factory of the Future award.
