“O Molde” interview

DRT promotes management of mould manufacturing with the incorporation of artificial intelligence

Valdemar Duarte, CEO of DRT Group, in an article for the magazine O Moldediscusses on how DRT boosted the management of mould making with the incorporation of artificial intelligence, more specifically with the help of SBI, a software that allows to increase effectiveness and efficiency in managers decision making. 

It is an innovative tool that manages the employees tasks and the equipment with which they are working in real time and also allows the process management since quotation stage until the delivery of the finished product. 

The SBI – System Business Intelligence was developed in the DRT Group and is available to the market, now also in mobile application. 

DRT Advance, one of the Group companies, develops and sells SBI, presenting a continuous development and improvement. 

“An intuitive and secure software, whose functionality and results are successfully proven” – Valdemar Duarte for the magazine. 

In addition to the advantages within the organisation, this software allows customers, through the mobile application, to follow the evolution in real time of the manufacture process of their moulds, through reports and images of the production progress, thus participating more closely and more actively throughout the process. 

It allows employees to monitor all production in the company, having a more active participation in meeting deadlines. 

“The SBI system for moulds production was developed in an R&D project within the scope of Portugal 2020, in cooperation with IPL, being co-financed by Compete 2020.” 

It is crucial to understand that this management software does not only apply to the moulds industry, but it is also suitable for any other industrial or service sectors.

X Congress of Moulds Industry – Moulds e plastics Magazine 2020

The Congress of Moulds Industry which took place between the 22nd and 23rd of November 2019, was about the present and future of a sector which is united and determined to face the main challenges. 

„The capacity for collaboration, cooperation and the creation of a critical mass will be the structuring elements, both to differentiate ourselves and to place us one step ahead of our international competitors“. These words from the President of Cefamol, João Faustino, were one of the conclusions at the end of the ceremony, together with the statement that there are new challenges that require new solutions, such as rapid technological development and the assimilation of new processes, which will have a huge weight in business investment. 

The focus on integrating processes and technologies to achieve competitiveness is a key factor in an organization’s strategy. 

Valdemar Duarte, CEO of DRT Group, took part on the “Digitalization Challenges” panel. This panel reflected on the current technological development in which companies are positioned and on the prospects for the future in this field. 

Valdemar Duarte also presented the DRT case, in which technology has been adopted according to real needs and how, in this way, the company has managed to evolve and the work that DRT has been doing on new systems improves the production process and gives lifetime to company employees, associating Artificial Intelligence to the machine algorithms. 

In the Molde 124 magazine, it is possible to find the opinions and the various topics addressed by entrepreneurs in the mold industry. The various speakers defended that “it is imperative to continue to invest in the integration of processes, in new technologies, in strengthening knowledge and, at the same time, in consolidating the international image, the positioning of the sector’s excellence and notoriety”.
