Manufacturing Evolved: Welcome to the Smart Factory Revolution
IoT and Industry 4.0 are redefining the industrial landscape. To satisfy increasingly demanding customers, manufacturers must have greater visibility across their production lines, supply chain and QC processes so they can quickly respond to changing market conditions. Smart manufacturing paves the way for these factories of the future by applying Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies. This step-change will not only transform your manufacturing processes at an operational level, but will open the door to new revenue streams and increased profit margins.
We work closely with you to fully understand your objectives, the stakeholders involved and how you will measure success. Based on this we can determine the data needed to achieve this. This could involve connecting equipment, installing sensors, accessing historian or historical production data - and applying this in context with your customer orders and supply chain. We will create the analysis, dashboards, alarms, and machine learning models needed to meet your objectives, while ensuring key actionable insights are delivered to stakeholders in a clear and timely manner.
The primary benefits are typically focussed around cost saving, improved sustainability, and safety, such as:
- Efficiency improvements, insights into staff and production line efficiency enable actions to improve performance and allocate resources better
- Reduced downtime, by ensuring equipment is repaired or consumables are replaced in a timely fashion prior to an event which results in shutdown
- Reduced maintenance cost, by only carrying out maintenance when needed reduces expensive pre-planned maintenance cycles, and prevents costly catastrophic failure
- Monitoring energy and resource usage allows for more effective planning and operation, increase sustainability
- Managing safety, for example, to prevent moving equipment and people from overlapping in shared environments, and ensuring air quality is within acceptable limits.
