Industry 4.0

About the Project

Digital transition has determined (and made it possible) that industrial plants of all kinds need to implement several changes to survive in the medium and long term, among which remote maintenance of the equipment is a major one ande the main principles of the so-called Industry 4.0.

The advent of the information society, improved telecommunications and the wide possibilities opened up by digital technologies have made it possible to move away from the conventional reaction-based, on-site maintenance model to new approaches based on remote, early warning and prevention.

In this context, ReMain Project provides students with the knowledge and competences necessary to install and implement tools, both software and hardware, to create the necessary infrastructure to remotely access the controlling equipment to be able to monitor and maintain the automated industrial models installed in the different training centres of the partners.

The project therefore contributes to filling existing gaps in training, to guarantee a successful entry into the labour market.
