The strategy of MSI, offering digitization services for production processes, is strongly supported by the development of technological solutions in the field of automation and data analytics in order to optimize the production processes of the customers. We develop, in collaboration with universities and technology centres at national and international level, digitalisation solutions based on Data Analytics, Advanced Control and Decision Support Systems. The research activities are aligned with the (future) needs of our customers in sectors such as metal, water treatment, glass and paper manufacturing.
In the European Projects (H2020, ECSEL, …), MSI commonly participates in the definition of data management architectures which are afterwards integrated and validated in the use cases. Given its role as a solution integrator, MSI is always involved in the tasks related to the exploitation of the results and to the transfer assessment studies to other markets.
Technology wise, in recent years, MSI is working more and more with Open Source Software – RabbitMQ, Node-red, MongoDB, Angular, Grafana, Fi-Ware, … – as a platform for its industrial solutions.
