Today, successful companies have a competitive advantage deriving from their "informal knowledge": the challenge of Industry 4.0 consists, in this perspective, in the formalization of knowledge through its translation into data and its exploitation through appropriate models of analysis.
The knowledge of Motive permits her such a competitive advantage, because it designs and produces both motors and gearbox and electronic speed variators. This peculiarity allows Motive to keep under control each ring of the power transmission chain
If the password of Industry 4.0 is interconnection, or to have in real time the information needed to decide, the latest innovative developments of the configurator of Motive (http://www.motive.it/en/configuratore.php) establish a new point of reference in this field that the other manufacturers will have to follow if they can.
The configurators, in fact, are not new for gearboxes; online tools that allow you to select, configure and download drawings and data sheets of gearmotors along with their accessories. But Motive configurator goes far beyond this for the following reasons:
1. It allows adding to the motor-reducer assembly, also the variable speed drive mounted on board, so as to show what happens to the performance at the different speeds
2. It includes hundreds of optional interlaced special executions, which guide the user to customize the product to different environments, uses, installation needs and applications
3. The result of the above is a datasheet that contains not just technical data, but also the data / codes necessary for a correct, unambiguous mutual understanding between the client's wishes and the production process in motive
4. This advanced selection communicates with the reserved area of Motive site section reserved to clients, a tool that allows to know the final price of the configured product with all selected specialties
