Welcome to my blog on IoT and more. My name is Ron van Breukelen, and in my daily live as a procurement and supply chain professional, I provide leadership and offer advice to discrete manufacturing companies aiming to improve their global supply chains. I establish supply chains with suppliers from the Far East, India, Middle East, Europe, Brazil, and the USA.

I also implement best in class solutions for procurement and supply chain and improve business processes, and know how to deal with the challenges of globalization, lowering sales prices, as well as the request for higher product quality. I re-engineer procurement and supply chain processes to counter these challenges resulting in significant improvement in competitiveness.

Believing we have to adopt for the new Outcome Economy, I consider myself an early adopter of smart factory / industry 4.0 technology. Fueled by my passion for IoT systems, I co-launched a company to help SME companies to improve the effectiveness of their capital goods and improve their profitability. I succesfully implemented Industry 4.0 (IIoT) solutions for LEAN optimization resulting in staggering R.o.I. on these solutions.

In my spare time, I like to maintain my blog about my experiments and experiences in the IoT and robotics field. My blog is supported with it’s own Git on Github where you can find my example source codes. You can find the STL files for my 3D designs as presented in my blog on Thingiverse.

I love meeting new people and learning new things, so please feel free to say hello and share a story with me. There are many ways to contact me, so just use your preferred method and reach out to me via email, twitter, whatsapp, or LinkedIn InMail. You can also leave a message on the contact form, and I will try to help you any way I can.
