Intelligent Industry videos show digital turning practical – Part I starring SSAB

Integration of the digital and physical worlds is leading the way to a new industrial age, Intelligent Industry. The Intelligent Industry vision of the world is one where people, products, appliances and services, production systems and communities are seamlessly connected to form intelligent environments. Intelligent Industry, however, means much more than just establishing connections between devices and systems. It has been said that it is transforming the way we do business.

Intelligent Industry Ecosystem is here to harvest the benefits of intelligent industry. Our aim is to turn digital into practical. To look past the buzz and to better understand the change that is subverting different fields of expertise, the Intelligent Industry Ecosystem launches a new video series, highlighting innovations from each partner which turn digital into practical. The aim of the new video series is to clarify what “Intelligent Industry” really means and what it can do for business in the manufacturing sector.

The first video focuses on SSAB’s SmartSteel concept. The idea behind SmartSteel is to make available data and instructions relating to any steel item wherever that item is processed. Each link in the production chain can then utilize and add to this data. This improves the efficiency of SSAB’s customers’ product processes and supply chain management as well as creating a basis for a circular and a platform economy.

Intelligent Industry is an innovative ecosystem connecting leading equipment and solution manufacturers and providers of digital solutions to drive and to realize the immense opportunities of the emerging new era of Intelligent Industry. The primary aim of the Intelligent Industry Ecosystem is to lead the way towards a new era of networked, information driven and autonomous value systems that flexibly adapt to changing operating environments and user needs. Key players in the Intelligent Industry Ecosystem are Cargotec, Fastems, HT Laser, Konecranes, Nokia, Ponsse, Prima Power, Raute, SSAB and Tieto.
