The industry of the future requires employees with strong digital skills. However, these types of skills needs both maintaining and development through education and career. One way to do this is through Learning Factory activities, where the digital agenda is integrated into the learning activities in several stages of the product life cycle or the supply chain. UCN Industrial Playground (UCN IP) is a Learning Factory concept that supports undergraduate student’s theoretical and practical training in acquiring digital competencies within Industry 4.0. This paper describes the design and implementation of a Management Information System (MIS) for UCN IP. Based on the didactive principles from Reflective Practice-based Learning, a demonstrator is being developed to show how a paper-based system for handling preventive maintenance of manufacturing equipment can be digitized and be an active part of a Smart Factory solution. The system is designed to inspire SME's in how new technology and End-User Development (EUD) can be used in automating and streamlining business processes. Case studies in modular knowledge and skill improvement are evaluated using a summative assessment for both reactions to the learning activities and learning outcome.
