The adoption of digitally enabled manufacturing requires new strategies for managing information about the construction materials beyond the traditional project-driven perspective. This paper contributes an approach to improving transparency and traceability (T&T) of materials using industry 4.0 technologies. The results of a year-long action research in a glass manufacturing company include a guide to identifying requirements for T&T in the materials supply chain and an instantiation of T&T…

Synergy and Communication of IoT Industry Development Strategies in the Perspective of Low Carbon Economy

From the perspective of a low-carbon economy, the development mode and influencing factors of the IoT industry are studied, and development strategies are proposed in a targeted manner, finding that there is industrial variability in the overall trend of continuous increase of IoT industry development strategy cooperation and dissemination in the low- carbon economy.

Using augmented reality for industrial quality assurance: a shop floor user study

An AR-based quality control system capable of generating virtual content to guide operators by overlaying information in a video stream while performing real-time validation is presented, showing that AR had a significant impact in procedures’ execution time (reduction of 36%), which means AR technologies may represent a profitable and sustainable solution when applied to real-world industrial scenarios, in the long run.
