Initial problem / Challenge

Gutter System, an SME manufacturer of metallic elements located in the province of Segovia, needed guidance and technical collaboration for its digital transformation process, and specifically an initial diagnosis and design of the most appropriate Industry 4.0 roadmap.

Specifically, the SME was betting on a project to digitize its production plant, incorporating a reliable management system, and improvements in the digitization of the warehouse, among other needs, such as options for improving connectivity in its factory and cybersecurity level.

Also needed technical support from the Hub to locate adequate funding for the project, in its various phases.

Solution / DIH Services

DIHBU examined the SME’s needs and provided it with access to an Industry 4.0 diagnosis. Several technological members of the hub were invited to participate in the definition of the best technical solutions for this SME, mainly CSA, Keyland, DGH Tech, and ITCL Technology Center.

At the same time, the DIHBU sought possible sources of funding for the project, identifying the regional line managed by ICE for the incorporation of ICTs as the most appropriate, within the range of regional grants.

The hub helped the SME to prepare the proposal and the technical report in 2021, and to integrate different technology solution providers in the dossier, achieving a positive response from the program in 2022 and obtaining direct non-refundable aid for its project.

Thanks to this funding, the SME has launched the project, called GUTTI 4.0, Industry 4.0 Plan, which will run until 2023, where it also has the DIHBU in a small part of the project, through technical cooperation tasks.
