smart factory technology
Bringing transformative industrial automation to manufacturing operations of all sizes and geographies.
This is our
We work consultatively with our clients to configure our unique Smart Factory Software as a Service technology and deploy the solution into innovative business models, mitigating front-end investment challenges that keep the game-changing power of Industry 4.0 out of reach from all but mega manufacturing complexes.
Manufacturers large and small must embrace Industry 4.0 to start operating at peak performance while keeping the workforce and bottom-line safe and healthy. Our solutions help these businesses join the Smart Manufacturing movement to take part in the dawning era of in-region manufacturing and production.
manufacturing in the new reality
Why high-tech manufacturing must reach the full spectrum of factory sizes and types
The 2020 World Economic Forum concluded that small, independent manufacturers could be crucial to reshaping industry in the starting decade. The global health and economic crises have combinedly, all but indicted the hub-spoke industrial model kicked off by the advent of containerized cargo in the 1950’s. Small independent manufacturers across consuming regions are crucial resources to restoring resilience to the economic fabric and mitigating the impact of similar crisis in the future. These small and medium manufacturers, particularly serving the high-tech sector, must embrace Industry 4.0 technology immediately. They must start adopting Smart Manufacturing to integrate this new era of in-region manufacturing and production. They need to maximize use of accessible technology to make them more, keep employees safe, ensure business won’t be disrupted and be prepared for the likely wave of new regulatory changes.
IoT is revolutionizing manufacturing by enabling real-time visibility into aspects of the process which either could not be considered before or had to be approximated from actuarial tables or models. The IoT data lake available for smart manufacturing grows daily at an extraordinary rate.
Manufacturing equipment relies on high-speed low latency data networking until now only delivered by hard cabling or specialized wireless solutions. 5G changes all that exceeding wired and nice wireless standards cutting the cord on the factory floor.
Machine learning is a natural fit for production processes. In Smart Manufacturing, ML delivers evaluation of data collected during production processes used to adapt changes continuously, individual processes become better linked and optimized.
As on-demand manufacturing increases in complexity from new commercial requirements and regulatory constraints along with growth in actionable real-time data from the IoT, artificial intelligence becomes a necessity for smart manufacturing systems.
