“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.
