Connecting Internet of Things (IoT) devices and using cognitive capabilities to align workflows and processes are critical capabilities of intelligent manufacturing plants to help realize Industry 4.0. However, these plants don’t depend on just one or two technologies to work their magic.
Intelligent plants are created by using powerful technologies automation, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, 5G/Edge, etc. to transform operations. Yet, deploying this vast array of technologies can be complex and requires both IT and OT skills to architect and execute. Other challenges organizations face include, isolated and disconnected machines, legacy systems and technologies and lack of vision/ roadmap for Industry4.0 transformation.
So, how can you navigate from vision to implementation to operation by leveraging real time shopfloor data? How is AI effectively being used in manufacturing?
