Several players in Estonia’s ICT sector focus on the development of industry digitalisation solutions. Thereby, advanced automation and data exchange shifts in manufacturing lead to the creation of hyper-efficient smart factories. Some call this trend the fourth industrial revolution. At the centre of the strategy lies a concept called Real-Time Factory. As the name suggests, this allows managers to track key performance indicators in real-time — showing where to introduce improvements and allowing the entire factory to operate as one integrated system.
