We intend to further engage with other TACs to develop a technology innovation culture where ideas to enhance manufacturing productivity and technology can flow freely between research and industry.
As one of the leading research organisations for manufacturing technology in the region, SIMTech is well placed to advise you on the steps to take to transform your company. We have developed several tools to help companies assess their level of technology development to enable them to better direct their resources.

In addition, our Model Factory is equipped with manufacturing system technology that is designed to provide you with the experience of functioning in a fully connected digital factory and to show how data can be harnessed to give you an edge in responsiveness and competitiveness.
In SIMTech, our motto is For Industry. Therefore we believe that neither size nor age nor profitability should form a barrier for a company to adopt technologies to improve their productivity and/or competitiveness.

Our Industry Development Managers are always ready to visit you to provide suggestions on application areas; and many types of funding are available to support your technological growth.
We currently have engagements with companies that operate in the Precision Engineering, Construction, Food Manufacturing, Furniture, Landscaping, Logistics, MRO, Printing and Engineering Services sectors.

Hosting your application(s) on the Cloud has many benefits including;
  1. Low upfront cost. Without the need to buy and maintain your own server, your expenses can be kept low.
  2. Pay only for what you use. Pay only for what you use, when you use, through a transparent pricing system; so you do not have to worry about paying for capabilities that you do not need.
  3. Scalability. Using the Cloud allows you to scale up your capabilities (for example, processing cores and RAM) virtually instantly so you do not need to worry about upgrading and maintaining your hardware on your own.
  4. Assured uptime. Cloud services offer a guaranteed availability of up to 99.95%, so you can be assured that your apps and services will be available when you need it. Scheduled maintenance periods usually occur outside of business hours and you will be notified of any disruptions.
  5. Service and support. By working with our vendor for Cloud solutions, any troubleshooting of hardware or software performance can be done with just a call.
Our preferred cloud platform is Microsoft’s Azure. Security and privacy are built into the Azure platform according to the ISO/IEC 27018 standard; and the systems designed to safeguard your data are continuously upgraded to provide assurance to users that their data remains safe. Please refer to Microsoft’s website for an overview and white paper of the security measures in place.
We are offering our applications as packaged solutions at a fixed price to lower the costs of customisation and implementation to our users. The technology has been tested to work optimally using the stated configurations. Hence, any deviation from the model will incur additional customisation costs that will have to be negotiated separately.
SIMTech’s core focus is on research and development to support the manufacturing industry with technological innovation. We are offering the technology as a package through partnership with our vendors so that the customer can enjoy a professional level of service and support. Nonetheless, SIMTech will provide guidance and training on how to use the applications to help you experience productivity gains.
