Board of directors

Critical Manufacturing’s board is constituted by three directors, two non-executive representing ASM PT.

Prof. Rui Guimarães Critical Manufacturing

General Assembly’s
President

Born in Portugal in 1949, Rui Campos Guimarães is Mechanical Engineer (1971, University of Porto, Portugal), M.A. in Operational Research (1976, University of Lancaster, United Kingdom), Ph.D. in Operational Research (1981, University of Lancaster, United Kingdom) and Professor "Agregado" (1998, University of Porto, Portugal).

He made his academic career at the University of Porto, where he holds the Chair in Industrial Engineering, at the School of Engineering, since 1999.

Over his academic life, he authored and edited numerous articles and books, published both in Portugal and abroad, on Industrial Management, Operational Research, Statistics, and University Affairs. He was President of the Portuguese Operational Research Society, member of the Editorial Boards of the journals published by the Portuguese and Spanish Operational Research Societies, and member of the International Advisory Board of JORS, the journal published by the British Operational Research Society. He was promoter and first President of INEGI, an interface institute set up by the University of Porto to interact with industry in the areas of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management. At INEGI he led numerous innovation projects carried out with both Portuguese and foreign companies. He was President of the Academic Council and Dean of ISEE- EGP, the Business School of the University of Porto.

Among several non-executive posts held outside the university during his academic career, he served in the Board of Directors of INA (the Portuguese Institute for Public Administration), Público (a Portuguese reference daily paper) and Porto 2001 (the company which managed the events of Porto European Capital of Culture).

From 2003 to 2009, he was on leave from the University of Porto to act as General Director of COTEC Portugal, a not for profit organization aimed at promoting innovation, set up by 100 of the largest companies acting in Portugal, following an initiative by the President of Portugal.

Since September 2005 Prof. Rui Guimarãesrepresents the Portuguese State at Fundação de Serralves, as a non- executive member of the Board of Directors (Fundação de Serralves is a major Portuguese foundation aimed at promoting Contemporary Art).

Key Benefits

MES Systems provide immediate and long term benefits which support both rapid tactical shifts and strategic business goals, including:

  • Add prototype device type
  • Do we need a design for the new SE?
  • Ask for new feedback
  • Draw new chevron icon
  • Link design in JIRA

Transform manufacturing data into actionable insights

With increasing levels of intelligence built inside sensors, devices and equipment, the amount of data generated in a single day in a manufacturing plant can be staggering.

The Critical Manufacturing IoT Data Platform provides a highly scalable event ingestion mechanism that can route events to multiple real-time stream processing instances so that issues can be identified and resolved as early and as automated as possible. The platform also provides batch-processing for faster time-critical data analysis, while at the same time providing different tools and mechanisms to visualize, report and interact with the data.

“I believe our high scores are the result of our strategy to develop the most modern MES that will evolve and scale with the needs of our customers, anticipating where digital transformation can take them in the future. Our MES is designed to adapt to a wide range of complex processes and to enable easy standardization across multiple manufacturing sites. The diverse processes it handles requires it to be flexible, highly configurable and robust, especially in highly regulated markets. It provides a cohesive solution that can easily evolve with changing business needs.”

Francisco Almada Lobo CEO of Critical Manufacturing
