Manufacturing is experiencing a digital transformation as the industry enters into its fourth phase of revolution, Industry 4.0. At this juncture of metamorphosis, advanced technologies such as IIOT, AI, cloud, and cognitive intelligence are orchestrated to build highly interconnected and analytics-driven ‘smart factories,’ which accelerates the pace of business. At the same time, there is a greater need to see plant floor activity across an enterprise to make faster, more informed decisions. But getting the right information in a timely manner can be a significant challenge. This is where Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) helps organizations by providing workers access to the best possible information and tools that enable them to perform their jobs efficiently and achieve results.
Harnessing the power of data analytics, MI can monitor a factory’s entire infrastructure, know what machines are not performing to the specificity, and improve overall efficiency. MI also provides enterprises the capability to apply analytics and reporting techniques to operations and business data at the site, regional, and global levels. Unlike dashboards, simple reports, and portal solutions, MI allows contextualization of factory floor information by combining data from multiple sources.
As an effort to help organizations strategize their MI techniques and simultaneously enable growth in the industry, Manufacturing Technology Insights’ 2019 edition has compiled some of the leading companies with a trove full of innovative MI solutions and services. In this issue of top 10 manufacturing intelligence solution providers, we have listed out a few top companies bringing their best solution on the floor and talking about how it can change your organization for better.
