SIMOGGA Layout Design: Automatic shop floor layout

The automatic shop floor layout is one of the most requested feature by our prospects and customers: “I should click on a button and the machines should be correctly located on the shop floor”

We listened and thanks to the support of Innoviris, we started to develop algorithms to optimize automatically the location of machines within manufacturing plant and MRO sites.

Track & Trace your assets for years using Low Power Wide Area Network solutions

AMIA Systems has participated to a hackathon[1] to positively impact society with IoT and postal assets.

We have built prototypes demonstrating the collection of data using Low Power Wide Area Network technologies.

The idea was to collect data from the postman/postwoman and provide an added-value to the customers of the Post. Continue reading “Track & Trace your assets for years using Low Power Wide Area Network solutions”

AMIA Systems won the RISE prize offered by Innoviris, the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation

RISE Innovative projects - SIMOGGA
RISE Innovative projects – SIMOGGA

Innoviris, the Brussels Institute for Research and Innovation, supports and stimulates development through the funding innovative projects by the most innovative Brussels start-up.

AMIA Systems won the Rise, project launched by Innoviris. This programme rewards the best technological company through the allocation of a grant of as much as 100% of the costs related to the implementation of its Strategic Innovation Plan (PSI).

The strategic plan that led to victory AMIA Systems is organized into three goals:

  1. To optimize the location of machines within factories, maintenance sites and warehouses using Very-Large-Scale-Integration (VLSI [1]) techniques
  2. To optimize the layout of warehouses or distribution centers and build a new product SIMOGGA WMS – Warehouse Management System [2]
  3. To drastically improve the collection of data from diverse sources such as machines and components available inside a factory, a Maintenance-Repair and Overhaul (MRO) [3] site or a Warehouse

AMIA Systems a gagné le prix RISE lancé par Innoviris, l’institut bruxellois pour la recherche et l’innovation, supporte et stimule les développements au travers du financement de projets innovants réalisés par la Start-up la plus innovante de Bruxelles.

Ce programme récompense la meilleure société à vocation technologique par le biais d’une subvention reprenant jusqu’à 100% des couts relatifs à l’implémentation de son plan d’innovation stratégique.

Le plan stratégique qui a mené AMIA Systems à la victoire s’oriente autour de trois axes:

  1. Développer une automatisation du placement des machines au sein des usines sur base des techniques utilisées dans le domaine du VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration[1])
  2. Ouvrir à un nouveau marché en développant une application, SIMOGGA WMS (Warehouse Management System), se focalisant sur la gestion et l’optimisation de l’agencement d’entrepôts avec sa simplicité et sa rapidité d’utilisation.
  3. Faciliter et améliorer la récolte de données provenant de sources multiples telles que les machines et composants disponibles dans les usines
